Slow Cooker Jalapeno Pot Roast

It’s not uncommon for me to dream of a meal the night after I’ve had it. What isn’t common is when I dream about a meal BEFORE I’ve even had it. I knew going in that this slow cooker jalapeno pot roast was going to be great. Of course, after a day in the slow cooker the meat was tender and easy to shred. And it has just the right amount of spicy kick to it. It’s definitely not a bland pot roast by any stretch of the imagination.
Slow Cooker Jalapeno Pot RoastI set out making slow cooker jalapeno pot roast for po boy sandwiches and that’s it. As soon as I came across the recipe I knew that that’s what I was going to do. And the sandwiches came out absolutely perfect. I could’ve served the pot roast over mashed potatoes or made an open-faced sandwich or even better, used it in tacos, but I wanted a sandwich with some cool toppings like tomato and onion and lettuce to contrast the spicy beef. Perfect!

Slow Cooker BBQ Pot Roast

It was the first frosty day of fall, and I needed something to warm me up. Something hearty, beefy and easy. So I made slow cooker BBQ pot roast and it fit the bill perfectly. It wasn’t long before I forgot how cold it was and how cold it would get in the coming days and weeks. Brrrrr! I should’ve made a double batch!
slow-cooker-bbq-pot-roastI like my pot roast shredded, but if you like yours chopped or sliced you can do that instead. Either way this slow cooker BBQ pot roast comes out very tender and very tasty. You can substitute beef broth for the Coke too if you don’t have soda on hand.

I think pot roast is best served with grits, but mashed potatoes are just (well, almost) as great. I like the textural contrast of the grits with the tender, juicy beef.

Slow Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast

I’ve made my share of pot roasts. In the oven. In a crockpot. Heck, I’ve even smoked a pot roast (and boy, was it ever heavenly). There’s a 3-way tie on my list of my favorite things to make during the fall and winter: chili, gumbo, and pot roast. And when it comes to an easy-to-make pot roast, this slow cooker Mississippi pot roast is the king.

Six ingredients and eight hours and you’ll be enjoying an absolutely flavor-packed fall-apart roast. Do not be tempted to add beef broth or any other liquid to this slow cooker Mississippi pot roast. It will make it’s own gravy just fine by itself. Add everything to the crockpot and go away. Leave it be.Slow Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast

We had this roast over mashed cauliflower. Yes, cauliflower.
