My wife and I cooked one last Sunday and it turned out great. Great flavor and very tender. Eight hours on low. If we had a football team in Detroit, I could have watched the game while it was cooking. NOT.

Honestly, I'm not a very good cook. I tolerate my cooking because most times it's just me and I'm generally only interested in "filling the hole/" Thus... I have fairly barbaric tastes in food.


Jim, you sound like me. When it comes to food my motto is "If it's 99 cents, it's delicious."   :laugh2:

If microwaves had been invented back when I was single, I never would have heated up a frying pan. Years later, I still don't like to cook, even though plenty of my male relatives do. :)

I made this (chuck) recipe for a fishing buddy and his GF last year when Cheater posted it. Today he asked me to make it again. He's a chef at the local yacht club, which says a lot.


Yes, it's that good  :sun_bespectacled: He also specifically asked me to get some French bread for next day leftover Po-Boys.   :dance3:

Cheater-approved new updated Mississippi Pot Roast recipe. I don't know if I'll try it or not, looks like it's more complicated than the original

It's just one that doesn't use the commercial au jus and ranch mixes. And I try to make my own spice mixes when I can. That ingredients in this new recipe should be stuff anyone who cooks should have in the pantry or fridge, with the possible exception of the optional teaspoon of buttermilk.


I used this recipe for the first time a couple days ago and I think it's better than the first one I posted. The fact that I used more pepperocini than it called for may have made a difference...


Just had some of the leftovers for a late lunch and it was delicious!
