Mississippi pot roast is a classic comfort meal. Not only is it a super easy, leave it and forget it type of meal, but it is a meal your whole family will love.

Mississippi pot roast is perfect for any busy weeknight or as the star of the show for any dinner party.

The ranch seasoning, au jus gravy mix, and pepperoncinis create an explosion of flavors on top of a chuck roast.

The juices from the chuck roast and seasonings create the perfect sauce for mashed potatoes or rice.

Cooking the chuck roast in the crockpot creates a tender cut of meat that easily shreds and melts in your mouth.

Serve over mashed potatoes or rice and with your favorite vegetable for a well rounded meal.
