Mississippi Pot Roast

Mississippi Pot Roast is the BEST pot roast EVER! Put the slow cooker to work for you and come home to perfect pot roast your entire family will love.

Start your day with a Mississippi Pot Roast in the Crock Pot / slow cooker and have a family friendly favorite waiting for you at the end of the day. I keep the ingredients for this roast restocked in the pantry at all times. 

Begin with searing your roast over medium high heat. You can slow cook the Mississippi Pot Roast without the sear but if you have the time, don't skip the sear! Searing your roast will add another layer of flavor to all slow cooker recipes.

If I'm home for the day, I'll leave the roast in a dutch oven, add remaining ingredients and in the oven it goes.

When I'm away for the day, transfer roast and remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and set it low and slow to go to work on the perfect pot roast. 

Half an hour before you are ready to eat, shred the beef with 2 forks and let it continue cooking for another 30 minutes. 

Serve roast with mashed potatoes, over oven french fries, on sandwich rolls or a la carte Carnivore / Keto style.
