WHAT IS MISSISSIPPI POT ROAST?

It is called that way because a housewife from Mississippi was the first ever to make it. Her friends and family loved the flavor and how easy it was to make, so it became very popular within her community. As time went by, its popularity crossed state borders and people started calling it Mississippi roast.

This easy recipe uses only 5 ingredients and needs no prepping while yielding a very flavorful and tender roast. No wonder why it’s so popular!
