I woke up early this Saturday morning and I was pleasantly surprised by some cooler temperatures. I've noticed some of the leaves are changing color, the days are a tad bit cooler and day by day we get closer to needing a light jacket. I, for one, can't wait for the first chill and shorter days.
After leaving a long day at work, especially during the fall months, I like to walk into the house with dinner ready and the house smelling scrumptious. I wanted to share one of my favorite crock pot meals that I've been making for a couple of years now. I'm not a cook by any stretch of the imagination but I make a mean crock pot roast.
Mississippi Pot Roast (Just 5 Ingredients)
Au Jus Gravy Mix
Stick of Butter
Ranch Dressing Mix
Jar of Pepperoncini Peppers
(Optional: Season your roast beforehand with your favorite seasonings)
Add meat to the crock pot. Add the packets of Au Jus Gravy Mix and Ranch Dressing Mix on top of the roast.
Place stick of butter on top of the roast and mixes.
Add peppers and pepper juice on the top of the roast and around the roast.
Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
For a bonus: Throw in some baby carrots and a few potatoes during the last 45 minutes of cooking.
Serve with potatoes, veggies and dinner rolls.
