We received an invitation for dinner and checking out my son and daughter-in-law's new house last month. Amanda treated us to a delicious Mississippi Roast and several other mouth-watering dishes. The pictures with the pepperoncinis slow cooking caught my attention, but I had never taken the time to fix this.Big mistake. Once you prepare a roast this way, all the other options pale in comparison. My son Andrew was eating with us that night and he said, "get plenty of the broth." Seriously, I could have used a straw!!! I went to Food.com and found their recipe matched up to what Amanda used and I added my own twist.
I made a layer of carrots slices, tiny yellow potatoes cut in half and one sliced sweet onion under the beef roast. On top of the roast, I sprinkled some black pepper and one pack each of Ranch dressing mix and au jus gravy mix. I laid a stick of butter and six pepperoncinis on top of the seasonings. Because I had veggies cooking in the bottom, I added about 1/2 cup of water down the sides. Setting the temperature to high, I let this slow cook for four and a half hours. I turned the heat down to low and let it cook all night (an additional eight hours). The bone was removing itself from the meat when I raised the lid. Tender, tender, tender!!
After an hour or so, the stick of butter had dissolved. I can't wait for Momma to come over tonight and enjoy this!
