WhenI first heard of the Mississippi Roast I was super skeptical about whether or not it would taste good. I love pepperoncini, and imagined the flavor infused into tender beef, but decided I had better try it. And oh my word. I was blown away by this roast. The intensity of flavor is so good. It doesn’t cover up the deliciousness of the marbled beef, but instead highlights and intensifies. Basically it compliments it well, and makes this not only one of the easiest ever roasts to make, but one of the best.
I love being able to share this recipe with you guys because it embodies what Eazy Peazy Mealz is all about, easy recipes that are also delicious. And this one could not get simpler. You basically throw everything into a pot and let it cook until it is tender and falling apart.
I like to sear the roast before cooking to help hold in all that goodness. but you can skip that part if you are in a hurry.
Now, while I am stoked about the roast in general and the amazing flavor you can coax out of the simple cut of chuck with this method, what I am over the moon about is the fact that when you cook it in the instant pot it takes this simple meal to a whole new level. Why? Because you get that fall apart tender juicy meat in a fraction of the time.
I am a HUGE fan of the instant pot. These French Dip sandwiches are probably my favorite thing to make, followed closely by this Beef Stroganoff. I feel like it is a magic time machine that gives you that melding of flavors that usually takes time, and that tenderness that requires time, and makes them obtainable by the busy mom. Amazing.
Tips for making Instant Pot Mississippi Roast
- Sear the meat on the saute function to seal the edges and insure it stays juicy and tender.
- Deglaze the pot before trying to take it up to pressure. This will help it reach pressure without reading “burn”, and give the roast even more flavor.
- Let the instant pot depressurize naturally instead of quick release. If you quick release it you will basically suck moisture out of the meat, and it won’t be nearly as good.
- Shred the meat and put it back into the juices to keep it extra juicy.
- Eat it over mashed potatoes! Yum!
