The Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe

The Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe by Robin Chapman has taken the Pinterest nation of pinners hostage and refuses to let go of them anytime soon. I’ve watched the Mississippi Pot Roast craze for over four-plus years. It’s honestly one of the recipes we bloggers watch in awe and wonder how in the Sam hell did that happen?

The Mississippi Pot Roast Recipes, odd and somewhat unlikely ingredients of Chuck roast, an entire stick of real butter Yes, I said “Entire stick of butter,” dry Ranch dressing mix, dry Ad jus gravy mix, and pepperoncini made my head swim in the get-go wondering what this Pot Roast would taste like. Would it taste salty? Would it even remotely taste good with that combo of ingredients?

 

 

The Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe by Robin Chapman has taken the Pinterest nation of pinners hostage and refuses to let go of them anytime soon. I've watched the Mississippi Pot Roast craze for over four-plus years, it's honestly one of the recipes we bloggers watch in awe and wonder how in the Sam hell did that happen?I decided to research this Mississippi Pot Roast recipe a little more four years later, wondering who the heck the original Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe developer was. Where did she/he get this idea to toss these odd ingredients together? Why was the recipe named The Mississippi Pot Roast Recipe? Was this person even remotely from Mississippi? I needed to know the answers to my questions immediately. I could no longer be content with just speculating anymore.

Finally, my mind could rest a bit. Upon a Google search, I found the developer of the Mississippi Pot RoastRobin Chapman, the one and only, the originator of the recipe that that has been said to have broken the internet, taken Pinterest by storm via over 1 million pins, and caused nine-tenths of us bloggers jowls to drop in awe. Now to answer the other impending questions…

To answer another one of my questions, Robin Chapman does live in the state of Mississippi, to be exact, she lives a short distance from my new home in Olive Branch, Mississippi, which is a little suburb of Memphis, Tennessee. Yes, I know it does seem somewhat confusing to hear a town in Mississippi is a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee, but it’s real, guys. I guess that would explain the name of the Mississippi Pot Roast, wouldn’t it?

I've watched the Mississippi Pot Roast craze for over four-plus years, it's honestly one of the recipes we bloggers watch in awe and wonder how in the Sam hell did that happen?I further found that the Mississippi Pot Roast was an adaptation of a recipe her family has used for several years. The original recipe by her aunt was called for a dry package of Italian Dressing mix instead of the dry Ranch Dressing mix. However, Robin opted for a slightly milder taste of Ranch in her recipe.

As you are reading this, I have a Mississippi Pot Roast going in my Mom’s crockpot. I decided after years of watching others jump on the Mississippi Pot Roast bandwagon, I too was going to take that mighty leap and see what everyone is going crazy over.

 

 

 

The Mississippi Pot Roast RecipeI didn’t change much from Robin’s recipe; I seasoned a Chuck roast with a bit of kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, tossed in a dry package of onion soup mix is that was what I had in the pantry, a package of dry Ranch Dressing mix, a whopping whole stick of real butter, those vinegary pepperoncini’s, and finally my signature brand Cajun spice You know the one Y’all.

I got a little nervous about the idea of not adding any liquids to the crockpot, and so did my mama, so we chickened out and added about 1/2 of a cup of water. I know, I know, call me Chicken Little. I deserve it. I set the crockpot on high heat for an hour, then lowered the heat to low and set the time for 11 hours, halfway through added potatoes and carrots and let it continue to cook to perfection slowly.

    I could only find a 2.5 lb roast. How would you suggest I alter the recipe to accompany this smaller portion of meat?

      Hi, Bridget, The seasoning can pretty much be cutdown slightly. I would also cut the amount of potatoes and veggies too unless you enjoy leftover veggies. The roast is going to shrink so you may want to keep that in mind if serving more than 3 people.You will also cut the cook time to on slow setting on your crockpot to 6 to 8 hours.

    A crock pot or slow cooker is an excellent way of cooking meat. This pot roast recipe looks very flavourful

    What a fabulously comforting sounding recipe, could you give me a shove in the right direction on the flavour profiles of cajun seasoning… Not something very common on this side of the Atlantic at all.

      Hi, Brian, I sure can. I used to make my own all the time till I found Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning so a basic rundown of what you can use is a blend of garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, oregano, thyme, and a bit of salt. I usually used to do an equal ratio of everything except the salt, do that to your own taste. I hope that helps and thank you, for stopping by.
