The nutritional information provided is only an estimate. Exact nutritional information will vary depending on the cut of meat you use and specific ingredients. 

WHAT IS THE BEST CUT OF BEEF FOR A POT ROAST?

I was surprised to find that a tougher cut of beef with lots of marbling makes a better roast when making a recipe for a roast in the Crock-Pot. For the most tender meat, choose one of the roasts listed below.
  1. Chuck Roast (highly marbled with a lot of fat) – also labeled Shoulder Roast, Blade Roast, Chuck Shoulder, Severn Bone Roast
  2. Bottom Round Roast (leaner than chuck roast) – Roast Rump Roast or London Broil
  3. Beef Brisket (lots of fat) – comes with a much heftier price tag than either of the others and is usually BBQed or smoked

TIPS FOR THE VERY BEST KETO POT ROAST:

  • Use a Chuck Roast as it will be the most tender and flavorful when slow-cooked.
  • Use beef broth instead of water for a nice bold flavor.
  • While I always skip searing a pot roast to save time, experts say that searing is best. Personally, from testing it both ways, I can’t tell the difference.
  • If the pot roast seems tough, it likely needs to slow cook longer. Close the lid and check again in an hour or so.
