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.

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. 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.

The Mississippi pot roast is great on a sandwich or with mashed potatoes. It also reheats well and makes great leftovers.
