How to make Crock Pot Mississippi Pot Roast

Step 1: Drizzle oil into the hot large skillet over high heat.

Step 2: Pat dry both sides of the pot roast with paper towels. Slightly season them with salt and pepper. Add the roast to the hot skillet and sear the first side. Flip using tongs and continue to sear the other side for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Step 3: To a slow cooker, transfer the meat and sprinkle with packets of the dry ranch dressing and onion soup mixes. On top, place a stick of butter and the peppers on and around the roast.

Step 4: Put the lid on and set it to cook for 8 hours on low.

Step 5: Using two forks, shred the meat, discarding the big fatty pieces.


1. For an extra kick of flavor, cut up the peppers and stir them into the meat mixture.

2. Feel free to use unsalted butter if you are sensitive to sodium. Margarine is not advisable.

3. You can also use rump roast or sirloin tip instead of chuck roast.
