It might even be better.  To tell you the truth, I personally never saw the hot peppers as adding much.

Or go for something between none and the 4-5 peppers called for in (some) recipes.    I've been happy with just one.

Success! I don't know what the "spicy" version tastes like but this was damn good and got even better with a little time. I also didn't have dried dill so that was omitted as well.

Chunk of pork shoulder, veal broth, porcini bouillon cube, big splat of commercial ranch dressing, a cup of pickled cocktail onions.   3 hours in iron pot/paper lid at 300.    Fork tender,

 

Mashed potatoes, reduced gravy.    Grilled lettuce/balsamic.    

 

 

Will grind up the rest of the roast and make ragu.

I love a Mississippi Roast.  But it's not for the faint of heart.

What is so challenging about it?   Lievre royale, that's challenging.    But MR?

It's a challenge to food snobs.

At least the way I make, the flavors are pretty intense.  And it's full of fat!

I'm hardly a food snob, but I didn't like it. At least when made with the original recipe (the NYTimes take on it may be better, but I don't want to waste a good chunk of beef to try it).
