Health Benefits of Beef

While beef, and red meat in general, often gets a bad rap in many so called “healthy” circles, it’s actually quite nutrient dense and very good for you.

  1. Rich in high-quality protein, beef helps build and repair tissues, supporting muscle growth and maintenance.
  2. It’s an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, including iron, zinc, and vitamin B12, which are vital for energy production and overall well-being.
  3. Beef is packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and contains conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), known for its potential anti-inflammatory properties. Grass fed beef is said to have this in higher concentrations – but all beef is a good source.

How to Make it

You can make this keto Mississippi Pot Roast using several methods. I prefer using a Dutch Oven if I’ve got all afternoon or an Instant Pot if I’m pressed for time, but some people like using a crock pot.

My problem with the crock pot is that you are basically just boiling the meat, and you are missing out on the extra flavor that you get from searing it on the stovetop or in the Instant Pot using the sear feature. But I’ll put the cooking times and instructions for all of the options mentioned here in the recipe card below.

This low carb Mississippi Pot Roast is an easy recipe with only a few steps needed to execute it perfectly every time.

First you’re going to season and sear the beef chuck roast in butter, over medium high heat to get that nice caramelization on it.

Then you’re going to add the rest of your ingredients into the pot and cook it for another few minutes uncovered.

After searing in the Dutch Oven and before braising step.

Finally you’re going to cover it and braise it (in the oven, crockpot, or on the stove) or pressure cook it (in the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker) until tender and falling apart.

Once it’s fork tender, you simply shred the meat and serve with your favorite keto side dishes! Bon Appetit!
