This Mississippi Pot Roast Soup transforms the cherished flavors of the iconic Mississippi Pot Roast into a comforting soup, perfect for any season. This innovative rendition retains the heartwarming essence of the original dish while introducing a broth-based twist, inviting enthusiasts and newcomers alike to explore its unique and delicious flavors from a different angle.

You’ll need a pretty large crockpot for this recipe (unless you scale it down), so if you’re looking for one, we highly recommend Crock-Pot’s Large 8 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker

The Original Mississippi Pot Roast: An Overview

Originating from a simple recipe that took the internet by storm, Mississippi Pot Roast is known for its unique yet irresistible blend of ingredients. A hearty chuck roast, salty & tangy pepperoncini peppers, ranch dressing mix, au jus gravy mix, and butter converge in a slow cooker, resulting in a dish that’s tender, flavorful, and effortlessly delicious. Its simplicity and mouthwatering taste have made it a staple in households across the country, demonstrating how a few seemingly unrelated ingredients can come together to create a uniquely delicious meal.

The Soup Twist: Transforming Pot Roast into Soup

Mississippi Pot Roast Soup is our imaginative variation that maintains the core flavors of the original dish but presents them in a soup form. This adaptation is ideal for those seeking the comfort of a pot roast but in a lighter, broth-based meal. The soup’s foundation is a rich, savory chicken stock, which complements the beef and vegetables while adding depth and complexity to the dish. Incorporating pot pie squares into the soup adds a comforting, hearty element to the soup, absorbing the flavors of the broth and offering a pleasant contrast in texture. This is one recipe you’ll be sure to save.

    • They’re a type of egg based pasta in the shape of squares (can also be called pot pie noodles) – major pasta brands like San Giorgio should offer them: San Gorgio Pot Pie Square Pasta

      If they’re not available near you, you can definitely substitute with other egg-based pasta noodles (you should be able to find one at a local store) or bow-tie noodles! If you use our “Get Ingredients” button, it should show you if the ingredient is available at one of your local grocery stores.
