Mississipi Pot Roast

Mississipi Pot Roast

It’s that time of year again when nothing is easier than my version of the Mississippi Pot Roast!

If you've never tried making a pot roast, this recipe is the perfect way to start. Pot roasts are typically made with five simple ingredients that all cook together in a slow cooker. I slow cook in a dutch oven in my Breville mini oven, but a slow cooker works great too. It's an easy and delicious way to serve the Fab Four to your family. This a versatile recipe you can customize to your own liking with the ingredients you have on hand. And with just one pan needed, it's easy to make and even easier to clean up!

  • 3lbs Chuck Roast - 1 pound serves about 2 people
  • 4-6 pepperoncinis- I get mine from Thrive Market
  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen Ranch Dressing
  • Veggies of choice: I used carrots, potatoes, celery
  • Salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp grass-fed butter or Ghee
  • Optional: Cassava Flour




  1. Bring a chuck roast to room temperature - season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder on all sides.
  2. Sear all sides in a dutch oven in 2 tbsp of grass-fed butter or ghee. If you like a thicker gravy, coat the chuck roast in cassava flour with the seasoning before you sear.
  3. Add 4-6 pepperoncinis and 1/2 cup of your favorite ranch dressing to the roast.
  4. Cover and slow cook on low for 6 hours.
  5. After 4 hours, add all your favorite veggies: carrot, celery, onion, potatoes of any kind and continue roasting.
  6. At the 6 hour mark, shred the chuck roast, give it a good mix, and it's ready to serve.
