Mississippi Chuck Roast

Are you ready to have thee most delicious roast?
I mean, possibly the best-tasting, most tender, easiest chuck roast, ever?
Well then this super simple recipe is for you!
I  ran across this one over at A Perfectly Lovely Ordinary Day and now this is the roast the hubs asks for almost weekly. Yes, weekly!
First off, my hubs isn't a "tender meat" kind of guy. If you follow my recipes you would know he likes "hearty meals that require a knife" typically. But this is something different. I can't describe it. But the butter, combined with the peppers, mixed with the seasoning packets makes the most tender, delicious roast. I cannot say it enough!
After it is cooked you could just slice it and eat it, shred it and add it to noodles, or any other dish!
I will say after some experimenting with this recipe, follow it as is! Do NOT use a round roast or add veggies to it while in the slow cooker.
You need that fatty marbelization that chuck roasts offer and since no liquid is added, the potatoes/carrots absorb the seasoning and become rather salty.
This meat comes out so perfectly flavored you won't need salt or pepper. SERIOUSLY.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I made it today for the first time. Mine is a little bit more salty than we prefer, but I think it is because I mistakenly used a packet of ranch dip mix instead of the dressing mix.

    1. I'm glad you enjoyed it! I have done the same thing before, and I felt it was saltier also. Although, sometimes I wonder if it is the au jus packet also..it might depend on the brand, and I'm cheap most times and go with generic and I can tell the differance then also.
      I also found that if I use Angus beef, it is much tougher, and it doesn't fall apart. I don't know if it is because it isn't marbled as much or what it is.
      Anyways, so happy you like it!! This is almost a weekly dish for us. I like to use it for homemade beef and noodles :)

  2. I feel like I'm stalking your blog. lol This was very good.

  3. Can you make this in the dutch oven?
