Tender beef chuck roast seasoned to perfection, and slow cooked for 8 hours.
Over the past couple years I’ve shared a few pot toast recipes. Some of the pot roast recipes that I’ve shared have been made in the oven, some in the slow cooker. Since most of you have been asking for more slow cooker recipes, I decided to make & share my Best Mississippi Pot Roast recipe made in the Crock-Pot.
This Mississippi pot roast is simply beef chuck roast seasoned with ranch seasoning, ground cumin, and brown gravy mix – although some people use au jus seasoning instead of the gravy mix. The meat is slow cooked in the slow cooker for 8 hours along with some butter, onions, and pepperoncini peppers.
I also like to cook vegetable with my Mississippi pot roast. I toss in carrots, onions, celery, oh- and lot’s of freshly minced garlic!
This recipe is simply the best Mississippi Pot Roast EVER… My family always goes back for seconds, and yours will too!

- Let's start of by seasoning the meat - Sprinkle half of ranch seasoning on each side of the roast, along with the ground cumin.

- Pour in the vegetable broth, then adjust the heat from medium high, to high. Bring to a boil, then turn off the heat.
- Spray a slow cooker with nonstick spray then toss in the vegetables, and garlic. Also pour in the broth.
- Next add in the roast, and sprinkle in the remaining ranch seasoning & the gravy mix.
