Slow Cooker Keto Pot Roast
My family loves pot roast. It’s such a yummy filling comfort food. Since I stay home with our 4 kids, slow cooker recipes that I can start in the morning and forget about the rest of the day are my favorite. I’ve seen similar recipes and various adaptions to this pot roast online but wanted to try and figure out the most flavorful version that was keto friendly. The verdict is in! My family loved this Keto Pot Roast so much that we enjoy it often.
It’s so easy to make, you simply dump all of the ingredients in the slow cooker and turn it on. Cook on low for 8-9 hours or high for 4-5 hours. I used to sear the roast first in a cast iron skillet but skipped the step once due to time constraints and I could not tell a difference at all. The roast was still every bit as flavorful and tender, so now I don’t bother with searing it.
I love to make Southern Green Beans and Cauliflower Mac N Cheese as side dishes when I make Keto Pot Roast. It reminds me of Sunday lunch at my grandmother’s house when I was a child, which feels like comfort food.
If you prefer to cook your roast in the Instant Pot, here are Instant Pot Keto Roast cooking instructions.
- 1 - 3 to 4 lb boneless beef roast
- 1 stick butter
- 1 pack dry Ranch dressing mix
- 1/2 cup mild pepperoncini peppers
- 1/2 cup beef broth
- 1/2 onion sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- salt & pepper to taste
Place roast in the slow cooker.
Add all other ingredients.
Cook on low 8-9 hours or high 4-5 hours.
Shred with a fork and serve.
You can sear the roast first, but after experimenting both ways, I can't tell the difference in the flavor, so I skip searing it now to save time.
