Fork tender, melt in your mouth, this is the BEST Mississippi Pot Roast recipe. A Naturally low-carb dinner idea made in the slow cooker!

When it comes to pot roast, we all dream of a fork tender, flavorful cut of meat.

While this Mississippi Pot Roast recipe is quite different from the kind I grew up with, it’s very similar to our favorite Slow Cooker Italian Beef recipe!

What is Mississippi Pot Roast?
Before I tell you how to make this delicious roast, you may be wondering, what is it? Why is it different?

Mississippi Roast is usually made by placing a chuck roast in a crock pot or slow cooker. You’ll cook it beneath some butter, a package of ranch dressing mix, another package of “au jus” gravy mix and a handful of pepperoncini peppers.

The result is a fork tender roast that requires very little prep time! We love serving ours on homemade Baked Mashed Potatoes.

Or get fancy and serve it to guests with this delicious Cheesy Hashbrown Casserole recipe!

4 lb chuck roast
¼ cup unsalted butter
1 package ranch dressing mix
1 package au jus gravy mix
5 pepperoncini peppers

Place roast in bottom of a crock pot or slow cooker.
Top with slices of butter, sprinkle the ranch and au jus over the top and add peppers. You can use whole peppers or a handful of sliced peppers.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Shred meat right before serving. ENJOY.
