What is a Mississippi Roast?
The recipe for Mississippi Roast in a crockpot originated somewhere on the internet years ago. There are myths left and right of how it started.
It is typically a chuck roast cooked in a slow cooker with butter, ranch seasoning, au jus, and pepperoncini peppers. It’s SO DARN GOOD!

No, they are very mild. They have similar heat to a pimiento pepper. If you don’t like spicy, you’ll still love this recipe.

What is the gravy ?
Hi Amanda, the gravy refers to the juices that are left in the crockpot after cooking!
You do not need the butter in this recipe. I repeat: YOU DO NOT NEED THE BUTTER IN THIS RECIPE. Seriously. Don’t put the butter in. Tasty otherwise.

I’ve been making beef roast for more than sixty years. This is the BEST of the best. My new go-to for my many “resort-type” guests. Just subscribed to your emeals, and I’m making your crock pot chicken with marmalade and pineapple today. Thanks!

This is Sam Sifton’s recipe from the NYTimes. He should get the credit.
Do you put the juice from the pepperochini jar in the crock pot?
I personally haven’t done it, but definitely give it a shot!
In a pinch I used 1/2 of mild Chicago style giardiniera. Omit the salt then. Never went back.
I’ll have to try that!!
Sorry if I missed this but how long and how hot do you cook this in an oven
After searing it on the stove, place it in your slow cooker on low for 4 hours! Then check to see how tender the meat is, if it needs longer, you can leave it in for up to 4 more hours!
