If my friend Julie Yoste hears you are sick, sad, or have an ingrown toenail, she is sure to show up with a bottle of red wine and a Yoste roast, her famous Mississippi pot roast. When I shared this recipe on the TODAY show, friends from all over the country sent me pictures of the grocery store aisle where the shelf of pepperoncini peppers was completely empty.This Mississippi roast is perfect as it is, but there is an epic sandwich just waiting to be built from the leftovers. Cut a crusty French bread loaf lengthwise down the center. Pile the roast on the bottom piece, cover with sliced provolone cheese, and broil until the cheese melts. Spread horseradish mayo on the top  piece of bread, and cover the sandwich. Forget Philly, call it a Delta cheesesteak. If your principles will not allow you to add a stick of butter, this recipe is just as delicious without it.
