You know those weeks months where nothing you cook turns out?

I’m having one of those right now.

I told y’all about all my cookies spreading but didn’t mention that it’s everything I cook. I don’t know what’s up with me but I’m sick of it! In an effort to make something my kids wouldn’t spit out (yeah, that bad) I decided to make this super easy Mississippi Roast that I knew they would love.

I don’t know why it’s called Mississippi Roast but I love Mississippi so we’ll go with it.

It’s a big piece of meat that’s covered in dry ranch, gravy mix, and pepperoncinis and slow cooked all day in a ton of butter. I knew, without a doubt, that everyone in the house would love it.

Seriously, so good!

The pepperoncinis give it just a little spice – enough that you notice it but not enough to make my picky guy whine about it. He actually asked for seconds and thirds!

The gravy can get a bit salty so if you plan on spooning some over mashed potatoes like I did, use a light hand when salting your potatoes. I also think you could get away with using (a lot) less butter – just substitute some water. The mixes will still make a really nice gravy for you.
