Why make the same old boring pot roast when you can make this easy Mississippi Pot Roast that’s also gluten-free? Just 5 ingredients and a slow cooker is all you need! The ranch dressing, pepperoncini peppers, and au jus gravy add so much flavor, you may never go back to traditional pot roast again!




  1. Place the roast into the crock of a slow cooker. Pour the entire jar (peppers and juice) of pepperoncini peppers over the roast. Add the stick of butter, then pour the dry ranch dressing and dry Au Jus over the top. Cover with the lid.

  2.  Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours (or high for 4 to 5 hours).

  3. Once finished, shred with a fork and serve.
