This classic Mississippi Pot Roast could not be easier! Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker, set for 8 hours and wait for your house to smell incredible. That’s it! This recipe has just seven unexpected ingredients that create a roast so delicious, you simply must taste it to know.

This roast originated in Mississippi, when Robin Chapman adapted her aunt’s recipe to create what we now know as Mississippi Pot Roast.

Eventually, the recipe exploded on Pinterest. This dish has been covered by Southern Living and The New York Times.

Mississippi Pot Roast is great on sandwiches, served over mashed potatoes or on its own. I like to make it for backyard picnics and slow Sunday dinners.
