Have you ever heard of a Mississippi Roast? Well, I hadn’t until recently that is and let me be honest here – it is EVERYTHING!!! I am not even sure if I can go back to my usual way of making a roast. This is just so delicious that just thinking about it makes my mouth water. I made it for my husband and I one Sunday night and we loved it. Then I made it for a party I threw and, no joke, people were literally asking to lick the bowl. It literally was gone within a few minutes – not exaggerating here either. Everyone was raving about it so much so that several friends called me for the recipe in the following days! So, here it is and beware you may get hooked too!
- 1 roast beef (chuck or eye round) 3-4 pounds
- 1 packet of dry au jus mix
- 1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 10-15 pepperoncini peppers
- 1/3 cup flour
- olive or vegetable oil
- salt and pepper
Rub your roast with salt and pepper and then sprinkle with flour. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and when heated through brown your roast on all sides. Once it creates a crust all around remove from pan and place it in your slow cooker.
Place butter on top of the roast. Add the pepperoncini peppers around it and on top. Sprinkle the au jus and ranch dressing mix in and add a little of the juice from the pepperoncini jar on the bottom of slow cooker.
Cook on low for 8 hours and enjoy the deliciousness! You can serve it on slider buns if you like.
