Easy Mississippi Roast
I have an obsession with pulled meat. Pork, chicken or beef – it doesn’t matter how it’s prepared or what type of recipe it is, if it’s pulled or shredded – I’m all over it. I literally can’t get enough.
I am constantly trying new & creative ways to take my favorite recipes & twist them into something different so the kids don’t get bored of having pulled meat every night.
I wish I knew what it was that makes me crave it like I do, but I just love it. I mean, I could be completely stuffed from a meal, it could be 4am – it doesn’t matter- if I see it I will immediately want to have some.
This has been so bad before that I have immediately started preparing a dish no matter the time of day. When it crave it – there’s no stopping me.
Since it seems like I’m making these dishes all the time I figured I should start sharing more of them here with you. Of course one of my all-time favorites is Mississippi Roast.
I mean, flavor packed pulled beef sprinkled with pepperoncini. Yeah- the whole family goes nuts for this one.
Slow Cooker Roast
It takes just a handful of ingredients to make, which is great because who wants a whole lot of prep time?! For me, crock pot recipes should be simple, simple, simple.
If it takes too long to prepare- I figure I may as well just make something on the stove top. To me crock pot means effortless & so the recipes I tend to make the most are the ones that are toss & go- just like this one.

Now some people like to use the whole packet of the au jus. I feel it’s a little too heavy on the salt/sodium content – so I just use half the packet & save the rest for the next time I make this recipe. It works out great.
