Crazy easy right?
If you’re wondering what kind of roast is good for the crock pot, chuck roast is always a good choice! Can’t find the right chuck roast? Bottom round, rump roast or even a pork shoulder all take well to long, slow heating and create their own juices for flavorful gravies.
The seasoning mix for this recipe is a take on my favorite homemade ranch seasoning mix. 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!
What to Serve with Mississippi Pot Roast?
Use two forks to gently shred roast and serve atop vegetables with chopped chives and salt to taste. We LOVE to serve this pot roast over a bed of mashed cauliflower or Roasted Radishes and drizzle the juices over top.
With such versatile cuts of meat, a slow cooker pot roast can make for a great sandwich, wrap or mixed with eggs for a protein packed breakfast or a lettuce wrap. Try it cold on a bed of salad greens with some shredded cheese and a tangy vinaigrette and you have a workday lunch that will keep you going for the rest of the day!
We store leftover Mississippi roast in the slow cooker for a few days. After that, we freeze any leftovers for a super quick and easy low carb lunch!
