Not Quite Mississippi Crockpot Roast
Have you heard all the buzz about the Mississippi Crockpot Roast? If you have ever spent more than a few minutes on Pinterest, you must have seen it.
I Pinned this recipe for a Crockpot Roast a while back thinking it looked easy and delicious but then I completely forgot all about it. Good ol’ Facebook live to the rescue! Recently I saw Paula Deen make it on Facebook Live and I knew it’s high time I made that recipe!
Welcome to the April Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants of this hop (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! So this month, I chose to make my own version of the Mississippi Crockpot Roast.
Last month my Pinterest Challenge project was these Painted Pine Cones.
The Story Behind The Mississippi Crockpot Roast
No matter where you see it, the recipe is exactly the same with those Pepperoncini peppers! I decided to do an internet search and try to find the original recipe. I just needed to know!
Here’s what I found. A sweet southern belle from Mississippi, Robin Chapman, altered her aunt’s recipe to be slightly milder using the pepperoncini peppers. She then allowed her friend to submit it to their church cookbook. Y’all k-n-o-w those church cookbooks have the best recipes!
Somewhere along the line this blogger found the recipe in that cookbook, shared it on her blog and the rest is history.
Ok, don’t gasp but I don’t want the Pepperoncini peppers! I’m using Pearl Onions instead.

All you need is four simple ingredients.
A Chuck Roast (I used a 3 lbs. roast for 6 people)
One package of Ranch dressing mix, like this
Small Bag of Red Pearl Onions
One package of Au Jus Gravy mix, like this
Wash your roast and place into the Crockpot.
Peal the skins from the onions.
Sprinkle each packet of seasoning onto the top of the roast.
Place the onions around the edges of the roast.
Turn Crockpot on Low and cook for about 8 hours. Cook time depends on the size of roast and how fast your Crockpot cooks. Use a meat thermometer to test for doneness.

I’ve made the original recipe before and I love the idea of ditching the peppers. I’m not always in the mood for spicy, so I’m going to try it with the pearl onions the next time I make this.
I guess I’m living under a rock because I’ve never heard of Mississippi Roast! It does look delicious and super easy!
This looks so good, I haven’t heard of this recipe. I love using my crockpot so I will be trying this soon.
Looks great and I love the simplicity! Definitely worth trying.
Nummy num nums!! This looks so good. I am wondering if I could try making it in my new Instapot. Have been pinning crock pot to instapot conversions tonight. I bet it would be easy to figure out. Looks like a hearty dinner my Prince Charming would love.
I would prefer the pearl onions to the peppers too. Your Mississippi roast recipe looks delicious Shirley. And because it’s a crockpot recipe, it’s a great meal for a busy family! Pinning to share.
My mouth is watering! I printed it off and plan to try it later this week.
I’ve never heard of this before, but it looks delicious. I’m pinning it to give it a try. I love easy crock pot recipes.
I have seen this recipe but I kept thinking that the peppers would not be something anyone in our family would like. Such a simple solution to try it with pearl onions instead! Pinned.
I’ve seen the recipe. I think I have it pinned, too. Using pearl onions instead of the peppers makes it more appealing to me. I’m going to give your recipe a try soon. I agree with you about those church cookbooks! I have a few of them and they are packed with wonderful recipes.
