  • 4 lb chuck roast
  • 1 (1 ounce) envelope ranch dressing mix
  • 1 (1-1/4 ounce) envelope au jus mix (you can find it by all the spices at the grocery store)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
  • 5 (or more...lots more!) pepperoncini peppers


  1. Spray your slow cooker with nonstick spray
  2. Place the roast in and sprinkle with pepper
  3. Sprinkle the ranch dressing and au jus mix on top
  4. Place the stick of butter on top
  5. Place the peppers around the butter
  6. Cook on Low for 8 hours.


Do NOT add any additional water or liquid to the crockpot.

My husband likes the meat browned, so I threw the roast in a large skillet on medium-high heat to brown it before putting it in the crockpot.


Basically, you throw the roast in the crockpot, throw the other ingredients on top, cook on Low for 8 hours, and then you’ll have the best roast you’ve ever eaten! You won’t even have to cut it up…it will fall apart as you take it out.

I also took the juice from the crockpot (eyeball it), put it in a saucepan and added some flour, and within about 5 minutes, I also had a delicious gravy. I didn’t even need to add any additional seasonings to it. Serve this roast with mashed potatoes and the gravy and your family will love you forever.

A friend of mine posted the Mississippi roast recipe on Facebook, so I’m unsure of where it came from. I also have no idea why they call it a Mississippi roast!
