Mississippi Pot Roast

Pot roast is something a lot of people find old fashioned or stuffy. I say to you it can be a revelation and makes for some pretty dang easy and tasty meals! Did you know that roasts account for approximately 20% of a whole beef. So in an average steer that is approximately 125 lbs of beef! Now granted this all could be turned into ground beef, and a lot of the time these days it is turned into ground. But why let a perfectly delicious cut be turned into ground when you can have pot roast?

One of our family favorite recipes is the Mississippi Post Roast. It is a super flavorful and easy Crock-Pot recipe that will knock your socks off! This pot roast comes together in under 10 minutes to put it into the crock-pot and 5 minutes at meal time. It is so simple, so flavorful, so surprising, and oh so good!


  • 3-4 lb roast
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix
  • 1 packet dry onion soup mix
  • 1/2 cup salted butter (1 stick)
  • 8-10 pepperocini peppers (from jar)


  • Pat the pot roast dry and place in crock-pot.
  • Sprinkle top of roast with ranch dressing mix and dry onion soup mix packets.
  • Place butter on top of powdered roast and randomly throw in the pepperocini peppers. I also like to add a splash of the pickling liquid from the pepperocini jar.
  • Put lid onto crock-pot and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
  • When ready to serve remove any bones or large fatty pieces, remove the pepperocinis and dice them into small pieces.
  • Shred the beef and return the pepperocinis to the shredded beef.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Pretty much any roast will do with this recipe. I love a good arm roast or chuck roast with this one though because they make for a great au jus to go on your beef and sides.

Searing the roast is optional but will add a hit of flavor to the finished roast. I honestly skip it though if I am in a hurry in the morning and it is great without a good sear.

Serve this with plenty of mashed potatoes to get the most bang out of the delicious au jus this recipe creates.

You can totally use homemade ranch dressing mix and dry onion soup mix. I have done so when I have it on hand. Make sure to use the same number of ounces as the packets.

I can not take credit for this recipe. Brandi of The Country Cook food blog is the brains behind this delectable roast recipe. You can check out the original here.
