Y’all, this Crockpot Mississippi Pot Roast comes out so tender and full of delicious flavor!

The gravy is AMAZING, so we like to serve it over mashed potatoes, because they pair well with the gravy.

For the second side, mixed vegetables, carrots, side salad, etc. work great. 

So many of you loved this recipe that I replicated it using chicken. Don’t miss the sister recipe: Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken!

Mississippi Pot Roast Variations and Substitutions:

  • Chuck Roast is the preferred roast, but other roasts (even pork or chicken breasts) also come out divine! Here’s my recipe for Slow Cooker Mississippi Chicken!
  • Brown Gravy Mix can be substituted for Au Jus Mix, just add some water because it’s thicker than Au Jus.
  • Other peppers, such as Anaheim Peppers work great in lieu of Pepperoncini’s.
  • Can add vegetables, such as potatoes and carrots to pot roast in crockpot to make it an all in one dish.
  • The amount of butter can be reduced to reduce the amount of fat in the recipe, just add a bit of water to make up the difference.
  • Serve on Toasted Sub Rolls for a delicious sandwich!
  • Mississippi Pot Roast IS Low Carb, making it Keto Friendly. Serve with low carb vegetables for a complete meal.
  • This recipe works best in the slow cooker, cooked on low for 6-8 hours. This allows the flavors to develop and meld, and the roast gets tender enough to shred with a fork. It CAN be cooked on high for 4-6 hours in a pinch, but may not be quite as tender.

Crockpot Mississippi Pot RoastCan I make Mississippi Pot Roast in the oven?

Yes! Just place in a 9×13 oven safe baking dish. Follow all other directions using the same ingredients. Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil and bake at 325 for about 4 hours, until tender enough to shred with a fork.

How to Store Leftover Mississippi Pot Roast:

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

How to Freeze Mississippi Pot Roast:

Transfer to a freezer safe container, we prefer Ziplock Freezer Bags, I use baggie holders to make the transfer easier. Carefully label the bag with the contents and date. Can be frozen for up to 3 months.

TIP: Pour leftover juice into ice cube containers to individually freeze. Once frozen, transfer to a ziplock bag to store in the freezer. Be sure to carefully label and date. When making beef soups or stews, remove the desired quantity of frozen juice cubes to use in place of beef broth or beef stock to provide extra flavor!
