Set and Forget Slow Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast

We’ve all seen Mississippi pot roast recipes and they’re all amazingly full of flavor. After craving some and not finding any chuck roast on sale, I just gave in and bought a bottom round roast Sind they were buy one get one free. So, I took my roasts home disappointed, but still determined. Little did I know I was out of 2 of the 5 ingredients this recipe contains. Fail. Well, I made substitutions and to my surprise it turned out BETTER than recipe I usually use. So much better that our oldest son asked for multiple servings and my husband (without prompting) said, “This is the best roast you’ve ever made!”. Ok, new recipe unlocked!


  • 2+ lb bottom round roast
  • Ranch seasoning packet
  • Brown gravy packet
  • Banana peppers (to taste)
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into 4 pads


  1. Place roast in slow cooker. Add ranch packet, gravy packet, bell peppers (10-15 rings of bell pepper seem to be a good amount for this recipe), and pads of butter to top of roast.
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours.
  3. Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
