You will love this recipe for Pressure Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast – includes instructions for how to make into a freezer meal and prep in an Instant Pot!
Alright guys, I'll confess – I kind of messed up when I included this recipe in the best of Boot Camps series. 😬
I had full intention on showcasing the top meals included in the free plans that have appeared on the blog in this series. I was going to leave the recipes from the premium packs out (for now)…but this one slipped in. I didn't realize it was from a paid plan until I had it in the freezer, ready to test and photograph, so I decided to leave this one in. So you guys get a freebie from the premium Boot Camps today!
And I must say – this one is probably the most asked-about from the premium plans. It's so incredibly easy and so incredibly delicious. It is probably one of the easiest to prep in this whole series (you really just dump a few things and freeze), and you won't believe the flavor in it. Very fitting that I get to include this one, since we're now a Mississippi family!
As a reminder: I’ll be sharing a recipe for each week of the summer (10 weeks total). On the 11th week, I’ll have a full pack of printables, recipes, and prep instructions to make all of these recipes at once for your freezer, just like my other Freezer Meal Boot Camps! (UPDATE: The full freezer meal boot camp is now available here!) You can check out the other recipes in this series below:
Part 3 – Mississippi Roast (you're here!)
In each of these posts, I’ll share how to make the recipe from either fresh or frozen. (And a note: if you’ve done my boot camps before, these recipes might vary slightly from the original version to make overall prep easier.)
Ingredient List 1: If freezing, put the following in your freezer container:
3lb chuck roast
6oz (half a jar) of pepperoncini peppers, with juice
1 stick of butter (no need to melt)
1 pack of ranch dressing mix
1 pack brown gravy mix
(Don’t forget to label your meal – here’s a free printable for that!)
Ingredients Needed For Serve Day:
2lbs red potatoes
8oz light sour cream
1/3 cup milk
1 pack ranch dressing mix
2 12oz bags frozen green beans
2 tbsp evoo
2 tsp salt
2 tsp pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
(Side item: ranch mashed potatoes, roasted green beans)
(If Prepping From Frozen) On Serve Day…
1. Thaw your meal enough to pop out of the freezer container.
2. Add frozen meal and 1 cup water to IP.
3. Set IP for high, 90 minutes. Once cook cycle is up, allow pressure to naturally release for 10-15 minutes before releasing remaining pressure.
4. While the IP is cooking, wash & poke holes in potatoes. Cook in microwave for 8-10 minutes, until soft. Mash and mix with sour cream, ranch dressing mix, and milk.
5. Mix green beans with evoo and salt/pepper/garlic powder and roast for 15-18 minutes at 400 degrees.
(If Prepping From Fresh) On Serve Day…
1. Add list of ingredients from list 1 and 1 cup water to IP.
2. Set IP for high, 90 minutes. Once cook cycle is up, allow pressure to naturally release for 10-15 minutes before releasing remaining pressure.
