Mississippi Pot Roast is a savory and delectable dish known for its simplicity and incredible flavor. It's a delightful combination of five key ingredients that harmonize when cooked together in an Instant Pot.
Typically, this dish stars a chuck roast, a cost-effective and easily obtainable cut of meat. However, it's versatile enough that you can experiment with different cuts, like creating a Mississippi Pulled Pork variation.
What sets Mississippi Pot Roast apart is the exceptional tenderness achieved by cooking a chuck roast in an Instant Pot. The other ingredients, including a blend of Ranch Seasoning Dressing & Dip Mix, Balsamic Rub, butter, and Pepperoncini peppers, contribute a symphony of flavors that infuse the meat with a mouthwatering taste.
This dish is not only a delight to the taste buds but also a breeze to prepare, making it a popular choice for a hearty meal. Whether served with noodles, rice, or creamy mashed potatoes, Mississippi Pot Roast promises a flavorful and satisfying dining experience.
Drizzle oil into the Instant Pot, wait for about 30 seconds, and then use tongs to place the roast in the pot. Do not move it for 3-4 minutes until it's well-seared and browned. Use tongs to turn the roast onto another side for 3-4 minutes, repeating until all sides are browned.
Switch the Instant Pot to "pressure cook" on high and set it for 60-80 minutes (60 minutes for a 3-pound roast, 80 minutes for a 5-pound roast).
Sprinkle the top of the roast with the ranch dressing mix and the au jus mix. Place the peppers on top of the mixes and add the butter.
Put the lid on the pot and lock it in place. Ensure the vent is set to the sealed position.
When the cooking time is up, allow for a natural release for 10 minutes (do not touch anything on the pot, just let it depressurize on its own for 10 minutes). After 10 minutes, turn the vent to the venting release position and allow all the steam to vent, and the float valve to drop down before removing the lid.
Serve the Mississippi Pot Roast with noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
