Ingredients (9)

Steps (4)

  • Step 1
    Season chuck roast generously with salt and pepper. Rub enough flour over the roast to evenly coat the surface.
  • Step 2
    In a large skillet pan, warm oil over high heat until very hot but not smoking. Sear the roast until browned and crusty on all sides, about 10 minutes total.
  • Step 3
    Place roast in the pot of a slow cooker. Pour beef broth around the roast, then sprinkle with seasoning mix, top with butter, and scatter pepperoncini over and around the roast.
  • Step 4

    Cover the slow cooker and set on low heat for 7 to 8 hours. When ready, shred the meat, mixing with the sauce in the slow cooker, and serve over bread, egg noodles, or potatoes.

    Time-saving tip: In a rush? Swap the flour for one 1-ounce package of dry au jus gravy mix and skip the step for browning the meat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for any night of the week A friend made me this dish and I had to come here to get the recipe a while back. It was so delicious I am making it again soon and probably will regularly. I didn't even like egg noodles before now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mississippi Roast I make Mississippi Roast at least once a month. This is the best roast I have ever had. I make it slightly different. I just put the raw roast in the crockpot. Sprinkle one whole package of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing all over the top. Then one package of au jus all over the top. Then place one whole stick of butter (I use salted but you can use unsalted, no margarine) on top of roast. Lastly, place 8 (or however many you like but at least 6 - 8) on top of roast and close top. I cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. I don't open it umtil the end of the 6 to 8 hours. Do not open and stir. Just leave it to cook. It is the BEST tasting roast I've ever had!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family fave! I make this regularly but just a tad different. I sear the outside in my cast iron and throw it in the crockpot with ranch powder, pepperonccini, and 1 stick of butter. I don't add oil or flour but I do add a single pack of French onion soup powder. So good and all 5 kids absolutely love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never knew beef could melt in your mouth until now Had this the first time last year when my momma made it. I ate it twice a day for 4 days in a row after that. I've been craving it ever since! If you like a smidgen of heat, I recommend adding tamed jalapenos to it AFTER it's done, much like a garnish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious The flavors are delicious and super easy to make. I hate hearing my stove come summer time and this is the perfect dish for a crock pot. It's one of the most requested meals I make. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe, I make it keto by adding... Instead of flour I use Xantham gum, just a tsp or two to thicken and it makes a delicious keto meal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the flavor! This is a staple in my household. Its requested often. I usually add some of the pepperoncini juice to increase the pepper flavor. I use this recipe for beef, pork, or chicken.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moistness and flavor!! This worked so well with a boneless pork loin!! used Au Jus instead of flour; browned, used vegetable broth, did in slow cooker...will become a standard in my house!! We rarely eat beef so thought I'd try the pork!! The Ranch really sets it off.
