What’s In Mississippi Pot Roast?

BEEF ROAST – select a roast that has a good amount of marbling throughout. A chuck roast works well, as does a round roast or rump roast. Why not use a pork roast for a some variety?

PEPPERONCINI PEPPERS – the brine from theses zesty little peppers tenderizes the meat and provides loads of flavor without tasting too spicy.

HOMEMADE SEASONING – using this unique homemade ranch seasoning mix is easy and the ingredients all likely already in the pantry! Don’t have a ton of spices in the cupboard? In a pinch, a pre-made packet of ranch dressing mix can substitute for the seasonings without the additives and carbs.

BUTTER & BEEF BROTH – both ingredients provide delicious flavor and help tenderize the meat. Try a combination of bacon grease and butter for an interesting twist.

    1. This recipe can be made in an oven, covered with aluminum foil. Just adjust the cooking times accordingly.

  1. 5 stars
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this recipe! It’s easy to make, tastes wonderful, and I prefer the ingredients over others. I highly recommend this recipe! 🙂

  2. Can I make this as a pork roast instead? Had to buy a ridiculous amount of pork shoulder/butt the other day just to get the portion I wanted…
