Easy Slow Cooker Dinners

Nothing is easier for me to make during the week than slow-cooked meals. I love dumping everything in the pot, flicking it on, and walking away until dinner time. 

A good meal has to be cheap too, right? That’s another reason I love slow-cooker recipes. The power of the crockpot is exactly what I need to break down what would otherwise be tough hard muscle. Hard-working, collagen-rich cuts are always cheaper than soft steaks but need the proper preparation before edible. (1, 2)

The soft, fork-tender meat is irresistible to everyone in the family. Who can say no to a delicious roast with vegetables? This low-carb recipe is an excellent choice for any crowd, whether a holiday meal or a weeknight dinner!

How to Make a Keto Pot Roast Recipe

Gather the ingredients and prep the recipe in just 10 minutes! You’ll love how easy dinner is!

Keto slow cooker recipes are some of the best for meal prep! This one doesn’t disappoint.

Ingredients

Chuck roast – Chuck roast or shoulder will both work equally as well. You may also substitute with rump or round roast. All are flavor options that take well to slow-cooking and are considered the best cuts for pot roast. (3, 4)

Onion and garlic – Classic add-ins for flavor; the meal wouldn’t be right without them.

Low-carb vegetables – Replace potatoes with parsnips for this low-carb pot roast. Chopped celery and carrot add a splash of color and well-loved flavor that make this yummy comfort food. 

Herbs – Chopped parsley and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary set this dish right! You may substitute with dry herbs if fresh is unavailable.

Bone broth – I use homemade beef bone broth since it matches the meat better than chicken broth. You can make your own or buy a shelf-stable broth in bulk and store it in your pantry until you need it. It never hurts to keep on hand.

Directions

  1. Season meat with salt and pepper. Place in the slow cooker.
  2. Add all the remaining herbs and vegetables around and on top of the meat. Pour broth over all contents.
  3. Cook on LOW 10-12 for hours or HIGH for 5-6 hours.
  4. Serve meat warm with vegetables and cooking juices.

A dry or tough roast indicates it hasn’t been cooked long enough. Don’t be mistaken and think it’s overcooked! Keep covered and continue cooking until meat is fork-tender. It should fall apart easily.

Keto Pot Roast FAQ

What can I substitute for potatoes in a pot roast?

This recipe uses turnips as a low-carb alternative. However, I know others who enjoy radishes, cauliflower, and turnips.

How many net carbs are in a pot roast?

There are only 6 grams net carb per serving in this low-carb keto version. Each serving also contains 36 grams protein, 20 grams fat, and 351 calories.

How do you thicken a pot roast without flour?

Add ½ teaspoon xanthan gum to the liquid in the last 30-60 minutes of cooking to thicken the sauce into a gravy without flour. I usually skip this step, but you can do it if you like.

What to Serve with Pot Roast

Save these ideas and add them to your Keto Meal Planner to round out the meal!

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes perfectly imitates mashed potatoes but has a fraction of the carbs. It’s absolutely delicious on a plate with meat and vegetables served on top. Be sure to spoon the juices over it all too!

While you’re at it, soak up all the juice with buttery Keto Biscuits.

How about a piece of Easy Keto Chocolate Cake or Flourless Brownie for dessert? Either one would be great because both are chocolate!
