Step 2: Shred the meat

Then, when the roast is tender, shred the meat with two forks. The roast should be falling apart!

Tips & Variations

  • I like to serve my Mississippi Roast on crusty bread and top it with provolone cheese. You can also add a little mayo or ranch dressing if you’d like.
  • Store any leftover roast in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days! I love to use my leftovers for sandwiches or even to top off a salad during the week.
  • You don’t necessarily need fancy meat shredders for this recipe. The tender roast should easily shred simply using a few kitchen forks.
  • Don’t forget to drizzle some juice on top. A few tablespoons of liquid can make it have so much more moisture. Pour over the top and enjoy. The beef broth is so good and you can add in some black pepper as well.

Mississippi Roast Beef FAQs

What to serve with Mississippi roast?

You can serve this roast with any of your favorite side dishes! My favorite side to have with this sandwich is my Easy Pasta Salad. You can also serve this classic pot roast with mashed potatoes, or other delicious low-carb sides.

You can’t go wrong with vegetables. Adding in carrots is a great recipe. Cauliflower rice is perfect, too.

How much water do you put in a slow cooker when cooking a roast?

Technically, you do not need to add water to cook Mississippi roast in the Crockpot. You can add a little water to create steam or use a broth or stock to add flavor to your meat.

How long to cook Mississippi roast in the slow cooker?

Cook your Mississippi roast on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. That being said, I recommend cooking on LOW for the most tender meat.

Which roast is best for slow cooker?

I prefer to use chuck roast, especially in this slow cooker Mississippi roast recipe, because the meat just becomes so fall-off-the-fork tender, making it super easy to shred. You can also use a brisket or round cut, but you’ll probably need to slice rather than shred that meat. This is seriously the best roast recipe.

How do I make Mississippi roast in oven?

If you prefer to make this Mississippi roast recipe in the oven instead of a slow cooker, you can follow the same seasoning steps and then place in the oven at 350 degrees F for 2 to 2½ hours. A lot of people will use a dutch oven for cooking it in the oven. Cooking it in high heat will make it nice and tender.

Use leftovers for easy lunches or as leftovers for a delicious dinner. Once you shred meat, it opens the doors for lunch recipes and other delicious recipes.

I love to add some sliced peppers because simple ingredients always make the best amazing shredded beef recipes.

If you have a love of food, this delicious pot roast is seriously the best.

This is literally the best pot roast recipe, ever. It has so much flavor and takes little effort to make. If you’re looking for a recipe packed with slow cooker goodness, you’re not going to want to miss out on this.

    Do you add beef broth at all??

    1. Shyanne - ATM Team says:

      We don’t. However, you can add a little water to create steam or use a broth or stock to add flavor to your meat, if preferred!

  2. Do you think I could put the beef in tortilla wraps for tacos?

    1. I’ve made it 100x and never as tacos but I don’t see why not. I’m sure it will be good

    1. Sharon Hall says:

      Do you add the juice in the bottle of peppers? When do you add the butter?

      1. Kellie McGriff says:

        I added about 1/2 the juice in the jar of peppers. I like the spice and tanginess of the juice. Or, add about 1/4 of the juice and mix with a little water. Put the butter on top before you put on the top. I used only 1/2 stick.
