Slow Cooker Mississippi Pot Roast


There is a global trend to rely more and more on slow cooking in preparing food instead of frying and grilling. Slow cooking means using a special pot or an electric device used to cook food by light boiling and slow cooking for a long period of time compared to frying or baking. The difference is that the temperature is low, and therefore the food needs about 6 to 10 hours to be ready. But do not worry, you do not need to be near the food at this time, as slowly prepared food does not need follow-up, but rather it is enough to put it in the pot and leave it, then return to it when the cooking time is over.

Important benefits

There are many benefits you can reap from slow cooking, including:

- Foods maintain their natural flavor, and they are surrounded by juices resulting from the food itself without additives.

Slowly cooked foods contain fewer calories than fried or even grilled and baked foods because the food is cooked without additives such as butter and oil.

- You can benefit from the time when using slow cooking, it is enough to put the food in the pot and leave it for hours, while you can save the food after cooking.

- Cleaning the slow cooker is very easy and you will not have to make efforts to remove the accumulations resulting from grease, oil and other materials.

Ingredients :

3-4 pounds chuck roast, (about 1.5 kg), boneless and trimmed of excess fat
1 packet au jus mix, (1 oz), or brown gravy mix
1 packet ranch mix, (1 oz)
1/4 cup unsalted butter
8-10 pepperoncini peppers

Instructions :

Slow Cooker:

Place the chuck roast into a 6-quart slow cooker.

Sprinkle au jus mix and ranch mix on top of the roast.

Add butter and peppers around the roast.

Cover the slow cooker. Cook on LOW setting for 8 hours, or HIGH for 4-5 hours, or until the meat is fork-tender.

Remove cover and shred the roast using two forks.

Garnish with optional minced parsley and drizzle with gravy. Serve with potatoes, mashed potatoes, rice or noodles.

Instant Pot:

Turn the instant pot onto Sauté mode. Add 1 tablespoon oil followed by the meat. Sear the roast on all sides (4-5 minutes each side) until nicely browned.

Add the pepperoncini peppers, ranch mix, au jus mix, butter and ¾ cup of water. Cover with the lid and close the steam valve.

Turn off Sauté mode and set to “Manual” mode for “High” Pressure Cook for 80 minutes.

After the cooking cycle finishes, allow for a natural pressure release (about 15 minutes).

After that, use the quick pressure lever to manually release any remaining pressure and turn off the pot.

Carefully remove the lid and transfer the roast to a plate and serve.


Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Place an oven-proof pot on medium heat and add 1 tablespoon oil. When hot, sear the roast on all sides (4-5 minutes each side) until brown.

Add the pepperoncini peppers, ranch mix, au jus mix, butter and ¾ cup of water. Bring to a simmer and cover.

Transfer to the oven and roast for 3-4 hours until the meat is fork-tender.

Hope you Enjoy!

Tuna stuffed deviled eggs



The benefits of tuna:

Thanks to its many advantages, tuna is the perfect choice for athletes, fitness seekers and others who are looking for a healthy diet to enjoy a better life.

The health benefits of tuna fish include its ability to reduce cardiovascular disorders, stimulate growth, lower blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, and aid in weight loss.

It also works to enhance the immune system, increase the body's energy, help in skin care, increase the number of red blood cells, and prevent the formation of cancer cells, thanks to the fact that it contains a huge amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins, and organic compounds, as well as antioxidants and vitamin B12.

Here are 13 amazing benefits of tuna that will make you eat it constantly, according to the "Organic Facts" health website:

1- Heart health
Perhaps the most important characteristic of tuna fish is its great positive effect on heart health, as it works to reduce blockages in the coronary arteries of the heart, because it contains large levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which help reduce omega-6 fatty acids and LDL or bad cholesterol that cause Clogged arteries. Also, the fact that it does not contain saturated fat reduces the risk of heart disease.

2- Reducing blood pressure
The omega-3 fatty acids found in tuna help lower blood pressure levels, the high level of which poses a threat to your health, as it causes heart attacks and strokes, as well as conditions such as atherosclerosis, and potassium, which is abundant in tuna, is a vasodilator, which is very good for reducing blood pressure.

3- Eye health
Tuna, which is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, is a great choice for preventing eye disorders such as age-related macular degeneration and dry eyes.

4- Growth
Tuna fish contains large amounts of protein. One can of it, which weighs about 165 grams, contains more than 80% of the daily protein needs of the body, which helps in growth, faster recovery from wounds and diseases, and muscle improvement.

5- Weight loss
Thanks to their low calorie and fat content, and their beneficial nutrients like protein, the omega-3 fatty acids in these fish stimulate a hormone called leptin, which is the hormone responsible for making you feel full.

6- Boosting the immune system
Tuna contains a good amount of vitamin C, zinc and manganese, all of which are natural antioxidants. These antioxidants are one of the body's defense mechanisms against free radicals, which cause cancer and other chronic diseases. Also, selenium, which is abundant in tuna, enhances the immune system, as one can of tuna gives the body 200% of the selenium it needs.

7- Boost energy levels
Studies have concluded that the large amount of vitamin B in tuna is linked to many health benefits, as it works mainly in enhancing the metabolism process, increasing the efficiency of the body’s organs, protecting the skin, and increasing energy levels.

8- Improve blood circulation
Tuna is a rich source of iron, so it plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen to all the vital organs of the body so that they can work efficiently.

9- Prevention of cancer
Thanks to its antioxidant properties, thanks to its selenium and other nutrients, tuna is one of the best foods effective in preventing some types of cancer. Many studies have linked eating these fish to reducing breast and kidney cancer, because selenium is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals before they cause mutations in healthy cells, turning them into cancerous cells. Other promising results also showed that tuna helps reduce colon cancer rates, thanks to its high levels of omega-3 fatty acids.

10- Kidney disease
The content of potassium and sodium in tuna is well balanced, which helps in achieving fluid balance in the body, and when this is achieved, the kidneys work properly, and thus the chances of developing acute kidney disease decrease.

11- Reducing inflammation
Tuna fish reduces inflammation levels in the body, thanks to its anti-inflammatory vitamins and minerals. They also help prevent inflammatory diseases such as arthritis and gout, both of which affect millions of people around the world.

12- Health of cellular membranes
When tuna is cooked, the proteins in it begin to break down into fragments called peptides. These small fragments are powerful antioxidants that specifically target cell membranes, keeping them healthy, strong and well functioning.

13- Antidepressant
Eating tuna helps relieve symptoms of depression, and the results of a research study indicate that eating tuna is beneficial for women's mental health, as it reduces levels of depression in women.
