Slow cooker meals are famous for their “set and forget” recipe instructions and this Slow Cooker Mississippi Ranch Pot Roast is no different. This is a recipe you’ll totally fall in love with. Not only can it feed a crowd with 6-8 servings, but it is made with surprisingly simple ingredients. Plus, the flavors of this roast are crave-worthy thanks to a slow simmer and just the right seasoning.
Pot roast is a lot easier to make than most people think. Select the meat, place in crockpot, top with some water, set the temperature to low or high and cover to cook. When I first started living on my own, I used my slow cooker for everything and I still do. I love the fragrant smell of slow-cooked beef after a long day at work.
If you’ve never made a Mississippi Roast in the slow cooker before, you’ll love how flavorful it is! I make this recipe all the time and it’s finally just perfect to share the recipe! Don’t skip the ranch and au jus seasoning packets for this recipe because it’s truly what gives this roast its flavor. You can find the ranch packets by the salad dressing. That’s usually where I find them in the grocery store. Of course, the au jus seasoning packet can be found in the general section where all the seasoning packets are on display.
This Mississippi Pot Roast with carrots simmers all day in the slow cooker. After 12 hours, the beef literally falls apart with just a fork.
I’ll admit, we love this roast so much that I usually start it the night before. Two hours before bedtime, I’ll start the roast on high then switch it to low before bed. It simmers away all night and finishes cooking by brunch. Sometimes, I’ll let the roast simmer even longer as we really love slow cooked meat.
We love to add the carrots in at the start of this roast because some of the seasonings get absorbed into the vegetables and it tastes just like heaven. I have heard of people that add the carrots at the end of slow cooking but I’ve tried this recipe both ways and I prefer to have all the ingredients added at once.
We like to serve this crock pot roast recipe with rice or mashed potatoes. We have also tried French Dip Sandwiches because this roast makes extra liquid that you’ll want to hold on to.
Classic comfort food doesn’t get any better than this Mississippi Pot Roast. You might just find yourself making this recipe over and over again because it’s truly such a simple and elegant meal to make for the family.
Let your slow cooker do all the work and come home to a rich and hearty meal.
