Mississippi Crockpot Pot Roast and Gluten-Free Version {Guest Recipe}

February 18, 2014 9 Comments »

I’m a pretty good cook. Like everyone, I’ve had my mishaps in the kitchen, but I can guarantee that people don’t groan when I bring a meal to a potluck.

One thing I have NEVER mastered is roast. You know, the traditional meat, potatoes, carrots, and onions after Sunday church roast.

Even with my mother’s guidance, whenever I make a roast, it’s a regrettable meal. Or it was until I discovered Crockpot Mississippi Roast. I tried it on a whim and it was by far the best roast I have ever made! It has become a staple in our home and with some tweaking I have made it gluten-free as well! Perfect for us in every way.

Crockpot Mississippi Roast

Mississippi Pot Roast (original recipe)

Ingredients:

3 lb pot roast
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
1 packet Au Jus mix
8 pepperoncini peppers
1 stick butter

Instructions:

In a 6-quart slow cooker, add the roast and sprinkle dry mixes over the top.

Lay the stick of butter in the middle of the roast and place the pepperoncini peppers
around the butter. (I also like to add a bit of pepper juice to the crockpot. It adds a bit more kick.)

Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Mississippi Pot Roast (gluten-free recipe)

Ingredients:

3 lb pot roast
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
1 cup of hot water
2 Tbsp Better than Bouillon (beef flavor)
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
8 pepperoncini peppers
1 stick butter

Instructions:

Dissolve Better than Bouillon in water and pour in the bottom of a 6-quart crockpot.

Add the roast and sprinkle ranch mix, onion powder, and garlic powder over the top.

Lay the stick of butter in the middle of the roast and place the pepperoncini peppers
around the butter. (I also like to add a bit of pepper juice to the crockpot. It adds a bit more kick.)

Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

(Personally, I found this version to be even better than the original. The Better than
Bouillon just seemed to add more depth and richness to the roast.)
