Mississippi pot roast is a tender and buttery roast made with a pot roast or chuck roast. You add it to a crock pot along with butter, ranch and au jus seasoning packets and some pepperoncini. The result is a zesty, fall apart roast with a bit of a zing.
How to make a Mississippi Pot Roast Crock Pot Recipe
Place the roast in a crock pot.
Cut butter into squares and place on the roast.
Next pour 1 packet of ranch mix and 1 packet of au jus mix on top of the butter and beef.
Add 6-10 pepperoncini and ½ cup of the juice from the pepperoncini to the slow cooker. That's it! Now we are ready to set it and forget it.
Cook on low for 8 hours. When it is cooked I remove about ½ cup of the sauce and discard.
Then shred the beef. For easy shredding, try these shredding claws.
Serve on top of mashed potatoes. This is my favorite recipe for Instant Pot mashed potatoes.

Any chuck roast or pot roast will work.
You can cook it on higher heat for a shorter amount of time, but it may not be as tender as it would be when cooked longer. If you have the time, opt for the 8 hour cook time.
