I don’t know why this is called Mississippi Roast but if I could, I would totally change the name of this roast to be “the best roast you’ve ever had in your entire life.” Whatever the name, you just need to make this ASAP! Six simple ingredients, zero effort, 100% dinner & leftover satisfaction!
This Mississippi roast is one of our favorite meals to put together during the week when we have run out of ideas and/or just want a bunch of leftovers so we don’t have to worry about the dreaded, “what’s for dinner?” every night.
You literally just throw in a roast in the slow cooker and pour some ingredients on top and literally set it and forget it.
Some days, I’m at work and forget that I actually have a meal waiting for us at home until I walk through the mudroom and the smell hits me.
