Crockpot Pot Roast
This isn’t the first crockpot pot roast recipe that I’ve made, but it is now my favorite. The way this browned up and seasoned was amazing for being in a slow cooker. It was incredibly easy and my entire family loved it.
This recipe was sent in my Karri as part of our Crock-tober series. She said she found the crockpot pot roast recipe on Pinterest so I did some digging and discovered this is also called Mississippi pot roast and apparently it’s a very popular crockpot pot roast recipe! I could not find an original source but did find that it is on many, many blogs. It’s now on my list of favorite beef pot roast recipes!
Beef roast 3-4 pounds
I used a bottom round roast that was 2.5 pounds
Butter, a whole stick
Package of Ranch dressing powder
Package of Au Jus mix
HOW TO PREPARE
1.) Put pot roast in bottom of crockpot
2.) Sprinkle with ranch dressing powder and Au Jus mix.
3.) Put the butter on top of the roast. I quartered mine. But I don’t think it matters. Add pepperonicinis.
4.) Cook on low in slow cooker for 5-7 hours
5.) Serve with mashed potatoes, on a sandwich, or just plain (like we did!)
I didn’t touch the pot roast the entire time it was cooking. I didn’t flip it or move it and I left the lid on the slow cooker the whole time. The top caramelized similar to how I’ve seen on prime ribs and it smelled like my mom’s prime rib. Nom nom. You can probably serve with the juice to keep it moist or I bet you whip up a pretty good gravy with it!
I couldn’t find the original source of this recipe, but Food.com is one of many, many places I found it online.
