Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast is tender, juicy pot roast beef that’s full of flavor. This simple slow cooker recipe uses no mixes or packets.
This pot roast has become one of my favorite slow cooker recipes.
I’m always making new recipes, but this is one that I’ve made a number of times. I’ve tweaked it as I’ve gone, and this version is the way that I like it best.
What Makes This Crock Pot Roast Different?
Normally, crock pot Mississippi pot roast is made with a packet of ranch dressing, a stick of butter, and a packet of onion soup mix.
Since I don’t usually have those packets in my pantry, I decided to make a homemade version with the spices that I have.
This pot roast is tender and juicy and requires little prep, which makes it ideal for busy weekday mornings.
Do I Need To Brown The Roast?
I’ve tried browning the meat before adding it to the crock pot. It makes a difference in some recipes, but I didn’t find that it really added anything to this one.
So, I eliminated that step to make the recipe even faster and easier.
What To Serve With Crock Pot Roast
The pot roast is great on a sandwich or with mashed potatoes. It also reheats well and makes great leftovers.

I wasn’t a pot roast fan until now. This pot roast was tender and so flavorful. I’m definitely going to make this again.
Thanks! I’m glad you liked it!
Can you add in Potatoes/Celerey/Carrots to this?
I haven’t tried it, but I don’t see why that wouldn’t work.
Hi, I ended up here after Googling easy crock pot recipes. This looks delicious. My question is, is it spicy? I really don’t do well with peppers of any sort. Can I eliminate the pepperoncini & juice? Thanks!
Hi! Thank you! I’m not normally one for spicy peppers, and I don’t think it’s spicy. You could leave the pepperoncinis out, but the juice helps to tenderize the meat as it cooks.
I also have this crock pot pot roast that’s a more traditional roast recipe.
Hope that helps! =)
Wow, this is the best pot roast ever!!! The meat was tender and had so much flavor. This was the first pot roast that I loved.
Can I do 6 hours medium instead?
I don’t have a medium setting on any of my slow cookers to test it out, but I would guess that that would work. Good luck! =)
Stupid question time – how does combining the spices with the beef base work? Does it not turn all the seasonings into kind of a paste? Or am I misinterpreting the directions?
Not at all! It is sort of a crumbly paste. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask! =)
Excellent recipe! Wonderful flavors and so easy to prepare. My daughter just loved it, ate like there was no tomorrow. Thank you!!
Thank you! I’m glad that your family liked it! Thank you for coming back to comment. =)
This is a wonderful roast recipe! I tried it because I wanted a roast recipe that didn’t use cream of soups and mixes, and this was the winnner. This will stay on our regular rotation. Thanks!
I’m so glad that you liked it! Thanks for coming back to comment! =)
