Paleo Mississippi Roast

Mississippi Roast | Plaid and PaleoAfter being home a couple days, I am missing the bustling city. You might be thinking, but you live in Los Angeles that is a huge city. Well I actually moved back to Oklahoma a little before Thanksgiving. Yup I have been back in the Midwest for almost three months now. I loved living in Los Angeles, but all of my family lives in the Midwest, which ultimately drew me back. I’m not sure if Oklahoma is a final resting place or not, but right now I am simply focusing on doing what I love. I moved to Los Angeles three years ago with no job and knowing almost no one but made it work. I’m confident I will find the perfect place to settle down when the time is right. For now, I am young and have plans to travel and truly embrace life.

Phew. Not that is over, we can get onto the food! Roast is a great cut of meat that isn’t too expensive to get grass-fed. I saw a recipe for Mississippi roast and knew I needed to make a paleo version asap. The meat basically falls apart when shredded. It is so moist and delicious! I used my easy ranch seasoning that I always keep on hand. It adds just a burst of flavor and you don’t have to worry about it having weird ingredients like most store bought ranch seasoning.

Update: This Mississippi Roast has become a family favorite! I’ve made it countless times, and my mom even requested it for Christmas dinner! Sometimes I double the peperoncinis because everyone fights over who gets them in the end!

    This is one of my favorite recipes and I have been craving it lately. Used the rest of my mixed up ranch seasoning and put a roast in the crock for dinner tonight.
