People are taking Mississippi Pot Roast and making it into more sinfully delicious things

The steadily rising popularity of Mississippi Pot Roast—the ultimate Pinterest-friendly recipe that originated in Ripley and has turned into a supper staple among busy moms nationwide—has given way to plenty of variations when it comes to ingredients, cook time and even how to prepare it.

But the root appeal of Mississippi Pot Roast as a so-simple-anyone-could-do-it meal easily whipped up in the nearest slow cooker (or Instant Pot) has inspired plenty of interesting recipes made from leftovers.

I searched Pinterest and Reddit for some of the best. Tell us about your Mississippi Pot Roast variations in the comments below.
