Mississippi Pot Roast

Pot Roast

It’s that time of year again.  Frosty mornings and early sunsets.  Its fall and that means comfort foods.  One of our favorites is known as Mississippi Pot Roast.  According to Southern Living, this recipe was shared by Robin Chapman of Ripley, Mississippi in the early 90s.  It took off from there, and is now a favorite of many looking for that perfect fall dish.

There are no rules to which roast you use.   We like Bone-in Chuck Roast as it’s a trifecta of goodness which is nutrient rich bone, savory meat, & flavorful fat.  Rump Roast, Top Round, or Sirloin Tip are also great choices as well.  Break out the Crock-Pot or dutch oven (or Instant Pot at ~ half the cooking time) and give it shot!


– 1 pkt  brown gravy
– 1 pkt ranch dressing mix
– 1/2 -1 stick of butter depending on how buttery you’re feeling
– Pepperoncini or pickled peppers to taste (we use about 10-15 slices to keep it mild for our young ones)
– 1 Teaspoon Turmeric
– Carrots (as many as you want)
– Potatoes (as many as you want; fingerling or diced)
– 1 Onion (your preference)
– 3 Celery sticks (chopped)

How to Make:

Throw everything in your preferred cooking vessel and cook for 8 hours on low or 4-6 on high (low and slow is best).  About half this time if using an Instant Pot.

Tweak it to your taste by adding other spices or veggies that you like.  No rules here!  That’s it and Enjoy!

Thanks for following us and allowing us to serve you!  If you have questions or would like to share your thoughts, give us a shout!  Stay healthy and safe!
