Tips for crockpot Mississippi pot roast:
-Use UNSALTED butter since the salted one makes this pot roast too salty.
-DON’T add additional water or broth because enough liquid will be released from the chuck roast during cooking.
-DON’t use liquid based dressings and gravy. You must use the powder form or else there would be too much
-If you like a nice brown top on your roast, SEAR it first: Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium hight heat on the stovetop. Sear one side. Then, flip it over and sear the other side. Sear and brown the sides of the roast too.
Other flavor variations:
-Make Mississippi pot roast sandwiches with this shredded beef and your favorite toppings like lettuce, cheese, coleslaw e.t.c. Use high quality thick bread so it doesn’t tear easily when eating.
-To make Mississippi pot roast with vegetables, add potatoes or carrots halfway through cooking.
-You can also make this roast with pork or chicken but it won’t be the original Mississippi roast recipe.
