Mississippi Pot Roast


By Audra Anders for The Aha! Connection


  • Approx 3lb chuck roast
  • 1 packet ranch dressing mix (I used Hidden Valley Ranch Ranch Dip Mix because it is Gluten Free)
  • 1 packed au jus gravy mix (My mother-in-law uses McCormick’s but I found a gluten free gravy mix at Kroger and used that instead)
  • butter (1/4 cup sliced)
  • pepperoncini peppers (We used about 8 – I’ll use more next time)


  • Place the chuck roast in the bottom of your crock pot.
  • Sprinkle the ranch and au jus mixes over the top of the roast.
  • Add the butter and pepperoncini peppers.
  • Place the lid on top and cook over low heat for 8 hours or more.

We served with mashed potatoes and green beans and ate leftovers until it was ALL GONE!
