Mississippi pork roast made in the slow cooker takes only ten minutes to prepare and is packed with mouth-watering flavor even your pickiest eaters will love.
Slow Cooker Mississippi Pork Roast
It’s hard to imagine that sometimes some of the best flavored dishes are made with just a few ingredients, especially when those ingredients are mostly pantry items we all keep somewhere in the depths of our cupboards.
The Mississippi Pot Roast is most famously made with beef, but honestly I love it made with pork MORE. Imagine that. Not to mention I prefer the pork version with a packet of onion soup mix as opposed to the au jus packet most Mississippi pot roasts are made with.
This pork roast comes out of the slow cooker absolutely perfect, delicious and tender. The amount of flavor in each bite is impressive and is wonderful meal to come home to. You’ll find your family requests it often, especially for Sunday dinner or game day.
Ingredients You’ll Need
A handful of ingredients is all it takes to get this delicious meal on the table.
boneless pork roast – often labeled as a pork loin at the market (not pork tenderloin)
vegetable oil – or any other high temperature oil
pepperoncini peppers and their juice – juice is the brine from the jar
dry ranch dressing mix and dry onion soup mix – flavor boosters
unsalted butter – while you use salted butter, I find this dish is salty enough without it

How To Serve Mississippi Pork Roast
My favorite way to serve this dish right out of the slow cooker is over creamy mashed potatoes, but it also works well over noodles and white rice. If I had to choose one vegetable to serve it with it would be roasted broccoli.
When it comes to leftovers, the possibilities are endless. This slow cooker pork roast makes the best sandwiches or works well filling taco shells and adding all the fixings. There’s almost nothing you can’t do with it. And even days later, the flavor stands. Make it soon.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is This Pork Roast Spicy?
If you stick with the mild flavored pepperoncini peppers, this is not a spicy recipe. The pepperoncini’s add a salty brine flavor to the pork.
Salted or Unsalted Butter, Which One?
This recipe already has plenty of sodium with the ranch and onion soup mix. For this particular recipe stick with unsalted butter if you can.
Can I Cook This on High?
This is a dish you’ll want to cook low and slow (6-8 hours). The meat is not as tender when cooked on high and is much more difficult to shred.
How to Store the Leftovers?
Package any leftovers in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to four days. You can also freeze in a freezer safe bag for up to three months.
