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.

How To Make Mississippi Roast

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

  • Place a 3 pound chuck roast in slow cooker
  • Sprinkle ranch dressing mix and au jus mix over roast
  • Place stick of butter on top
  • Top with pepperoncini
  • Cook on low for 8 hours
  • Shred meat and serve with gravy

Can You Freeze Mississippi Roast?

Yes! Mississippi Roast freezes beautifully! I like to shred the meat and put it in a freezer ziploc bag with some of the gravy. And then I just let it defrost overnight in the fridge before serving.

You can reheat in the microwave, stovetop, or even put it back in the slow cooker. If the gravy is too thick, add a splash of beef broth or water to loosen it up. 

It will stay good in the freezer for up to 3 months. 

What To Serve with Mississippi Roast?

I always serve Mississippi Roast with mashed potatoes so the potatoes can soak up all that delicious gravy. You could also do rice or mashed cauliflower.
