CROCK POT MISSISSIPPI POT ROAST RECIPE
Just imagine a cold, chilly night where some comfort food sounds like it could really hit the spot? Or even better… anytime of the year because it is simply so amazing!
Not only do the flavors melt in your mouth with each and every bite that you take, but it is an easy, go-to recipe. Perfect for those times where you want to spend the least amount of time preparing and cooking your meal as possible.
WHAT IS A MISSISSIPPI POT ROAST?
A Mississippi Pot Roast is made with several ingredients, with the most important one being the chuck roast. Chuck roasts are one of the more inexpensive beef cuts, making this a good recipe choice when cooking for a large group of family or friends! You could even freeze the leftovers to save for your next comfort food craving.
When choosing your chuck roast, pay attention to the amount of fat throughout the roast. Try to find one that has thinner fat segments because those will melt off and create a super soft and tender roast, which is what makes this meal so tasty!
NOT A FAN OF CHUCK ROASTS?
Chuck roasts aren’t your jam? Try it with another type of meat such as pulled pork! It will still have a very juicy and flavorful end result.
WHY IS IT CALLED A ‘MISSISSIPPI’ POT ROAST?
Rumor has it, that a lady in a town named Ripley, Mississippi had adapted a recipe given to her from a friend. Her goal was to make it a less spicy version. She ended up passing the recipe to a friend who had it published in a church cookbook. It was eventually given the name Mississippi Pot Roast because the original author was from Mississippi. Apparently, it’s even been named “the roast that owns the internet” by the New York Times. It’s obviously very popular and really delicious, too!
WHAT DO YOU EAT MISSISSIPPI ROAST WITH?
While you can eat the Pot Roast straight from the crock pot and it will be everything you could have ever dreamed of, there are three options that stand out to pour the Pot Roast over once it is cooked – mashed potatoes, egg noodles or rice!
Not a fan of mashed potatoes, rice or egg noodles? Try adding the roast onto a Hoagie or French Roll to enjoy it sandwich style! For a side, you could add some French fries or maybe some grilled asparagus.
IS THE CROCK POT MISSISSIPPI POT ROAST RECIPE KETO-FRIENDLY?
It sure is! The carb count is low in this delicious meal as long as you pair it with some cauliflower rice or mashed cauliflower. Simply avoid mashed potatoes and rice for a simple swap that is still so yummy!
WHAT IF I DO NOT HAVE A CROCK POT?
No worries, we have an alternative route! Do you have an oven? If so, all you have to do is add the roast along with the other ingredients as directed on the recipe into a small roasting pan or a Dutch oven!
Simply bake it around 325 degrees until it becomes tender enough that you can pull away the pot roast with a fork, which is generally around half the time that it takes to cook in a crock pot.
