Slow Cooker Mississippi Pork Roast

I have fallen in love with this Smithfield Homestyle Fresh Pork Roast. It is tender, juicy and has all the flavor you need. It is so convenient and pre-seasoned which is why it is my go-to for creating an easy and incredible meal for my family. It turned out perfect in the slow cooker and I am here to tell you, it was one of the best meals that I have ever made. Since making this recipe a couple of weeks ago, I have already made it again twice. I keep asking everyone that I come in contact with if they have had Mississippi pork roast. How have I lived so long without trying it? This hands down had the best flavor and our family couldn’t eat it fast enough.

One of the best parts about this meal is that it is so incredibly easy. It takes less than 5 minutes to put everything in the slow cooker and within minutes it is ready for dinner. This tender, melt in your mouth pork has flavor that is to die for. Mississippi Roast usually calls for beef roast, but I love that you can always swap it out for pork. My entire family ate this meal and loved it. It was such a winner in our book and the reason why I keep making it again and again!

This meal is so versatile and can be served in so many different ways. We first loved it with a side of mashed potatoes, but throughout the week with the little bit of left overs that we had, I was able to create a few more outstanding recipes. You can use the pork roast on top of nachos, in a sandwich, or in tacos. There are so many uses for this recipe that you are going to love.

  1. Could I use sliced deli Pepperoncini and add some of the liquid instead of all the butter. It’s great without the butter with chicken thighs
