Hey y’all! GOODe Ole Boy here!
I grew up on meat and taters. That’s what my momma always made for my daddy after a long day’s work. It was always roast beef, beef and noodles, juicy hamburgers and the occasional mouth watering steak. The cow played an important role in my life as you can see.

Crock Pot Mississippi Beef Roast
Cris texted me the other day and said to put on this roast recipe that I’m sharing with you. After I got all the ingredients together I thought to myself, “This dish is too simple to make and be all that GOODe…” Boy, was I wrong! In my humble opinion, out of all the recipes that we have collectively featured on our site, this is my #1 recipe. In fact, as I was eating this (again– we make it A LOT) just last night, I mentioned to Cris that this is now my most favorite recipe EVER. That includes anything I have ever eaten, and I have eaten a lot of food in my lifetime folks. I LOVE it when Cris pairs this roast with her Crock Pot Parsley Potatoes.
Now, the title of this roast is called Crock Pot Mississippi Beef Roast. I just call it THE roast. You know, like she’ll say “Honey, I’m making a roast for dinner tonight.” and I’ll say “You mean, THE roast?” And I’m hoping…no, PRAYING she says yes. Our Miss Add even asks for the leftovers in her lunch for school the next day. The first time we made this recipe, Cris was hoping to use the left overs for multiple recipes like beef stroganoff, sandwiches, etc. However there were no leftovers to do it!
- 1 frozen 5 lb chuck roast
- 1 packet powdered ranch dip mix
- 1 packet powdered brown gravy mix
- ½ stick of butter (1/4 Cup)
- 6 pepperoncinis
- Place chuck roast in slow cooker.
- Sprinkle ranch dip mix on top of roast.
- Sprinkle gravy mix on top of roast.
- Nestle ½ stick of butter centered on top of roast.
- Place pepperoncinis around the bottom of the roast
- Cover and set slow cooker on low for 8 hours
- (Optional) Flip roast over half way through cooking
This dish is a set it and forget it recipe that will not disappoint. It literally takes less than 5 minutes to prep. The hardest part of this recipe is the waiting. The reward though, is the waiting. When the roast cooks for the full 8 hours it becomes fall apart tender. Flipping the meat over after 4 hours will evenly distribute the flavors.
Did you notice that there are no liquids in this recipe? I did too, however there are no liquids required! The butter and the juices from the meat are all the liquid you need!
My favorite way to eat this is on a hoagie bun. I take the top part of the bun and set it in the juices from the roast. That is all that is needed to make that sammich pure heaven! (In the next few days Cris is going to share some of the different ways she attempts to make THE roast last a bit longer at our house…)
Slow Cooker Recommendations
Truth be told we have made this roast in just about every slow cooker we own! This time we used one of favorite slow cookers that we use on a lot of dishes however, it will do just fine in most any 4-6 qt slow cooker.
