Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe:

  • 3lb Chuck Roast

  • 1 Package radishes, cleaned and cut in half, if desired

Step 4)  Sprinkle packet of Au Jus over the roast, radishes and butter.

Step 5)  Sprinkle packet of Ranch over the roast, radishes, butter and Au Jus.

Step 6)  Cook on high for 6 hours or low for 8-10 hours, depending on your crock pot.


I serve this Mississippi pot roast with twice-baked cauliflower and my easy green bean recipe.   This recipe reheats really well so I like to incorporate it in my weekly meal plans.  I usually pack 3 oz of roast with 2 slices of bacon and either 1/2 avocado or 1 cup of green beans, depending on my macros for a satisfying lunch.
