Keto Crock-Pot Beef is as easy a recipe as one can prepare!  I loved my mom’s beef pot roast dinners at my childhood home.  My dad is from Newfoundland with a community deriving from English, Ireland, and Scotland.  Roast beef dinners on Sunday afternoon were a treat.

Our Sunday dinner consisted of a variety of vegetables (mashed potatoes, turnip, carrots, peas, and cabbage) along with beef, gravy, and Yorkshire pudding.

I love this dish with Yorkshire Pudding, as well. I kept the roast simple with a touch of salt, lots of freshly ground black pepper, garlic, Star Anise, shallots, and red wine.  Other salt-free seasonings to use include garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, thyme, and Parsley, to name but a few. Julia Child adds bacon and uses onion in place of the shallots.

Beef pot roast can be prepared for a variety of dishes, such as chili, stew, tacos/burritos, and pulled beef.   

WHAT IS THE NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF KETO CROCK-POT BEEF?

Keto Crock-Pot Beef

Beef: Let’s look at the nutritional value of beef. Beef roast is a great source of nutrition for those who enjoy meat. It is a good source of protein, which is essential for building and repairing muscle tissue, as well as for maintaining a healthy immune system. Beef roast is also rich in iron, which is important for the production of red blood cells in the body. Additionally, it contains zinc, which is important for maintaining a healthy immune system and wound healing. Beef roast is also a good source of B vitamins, including B12, which is important for brain function and the production of red blood cells.

It is important to note that the nutritional value of beef roast can vary based on factors such as the cut of meat and how it is prepared. For example, a leaner cut of beef roast will have less fat and fewer calories than a fattier cut. Additionally, the method of cooking can impact the nutritional value, as cooking at high temperatures can decrease the vitamin and mineral content of the meat. Nonetheless, beef roast can be a healthy and nutritious addition to a balanced diet.

Olive oil:

Quality olive oil is a nutritional powerhouse known for its numerous health benefits. It is rich in monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid, which is associated with heart health by reducing inflammation and supporting healthy cholesterol levels. Olive oil is a potent source of antioxidants, such as vitamin E and polyphenols, which help combat oxidative stress in the body. Studies suggest that incorporating olive oil into the diet may have protective effects against chronic diseases, including cardiovascular issues and certain types of cancers. The versatile uses of olive oil, along with its exceptional nutritional profile, make it a staple in a healthy and balanced diet.

Shallots:

Shallots, part of the Allium family, offer a potent nutritional punch. They are low in calories but rich in essential nutrients, including vitamins like A, C, and B6, as well as minerals such as iron and potassium. The presence of antioxidants in shallots may contribute to reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Furthermore, their organosulfur compounds have been associated with potential anti-cancer and cardiovascular benefits, making shallots a flavorful and healthful addition to a well-balanced diet.

Garlic:

Fresh garlic is a nutritional powerhouse with various health benefits. It contains allicin, a sulfur compound with potent antibacterial and antiviral properties, supporting immune function. Garlic has been associated with cardiovascular health, as it may help lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Rich in antioxidants, garlic contributes to reducing oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. Including fresh garlic in your diet can enhance the flavor of dishes while promoting overall well-being.

Beef Bone Broth for Keto Crock-Pot Beef

Beef Bone Broth:

Beef bone broth is a nutrient-rich elixir with several health benefits. It is a fantastic source of collagen, gelatin, and essential amino acids, promoting joint health and providing building blocks for skin, hair, and nails. The broth is rich in minerals like calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, supporting bone health and overall well-being. Additionally, the amino acids in bone broth may have anti-inflammatory effects, contributing to gut health and immune function. Including beef bone broth in your diet provides a flavorful way to nourish your body with essential nutrients.

WHAT IS THE TASTE PROFILE OF KETO CROCK-POT BEEF?

With this Keto Crock-Pot Beef, the predominant tastes sensations are fattiness and umami. Umami is described as the roundness and depth of flavor. 

WHAT NON ALC WINE HARMONIZES WITH KETO CROCK-POT BEEF?

Red Wine for Keto Crock-Pot Beef

Does wine work with Keto Crock-Pot Beef?  Red meat, due to its fattiness, always works better with red non alcoholic wines.  This is similar in flavors to a classic French beef stew from Burgundy called Beef Bourguignon. Therefore, enjoy a glass of Burgundy, vinified from the de-alcholized Pinot Noir grape. If you want to sip something more substantial in wine, choose a red with more weight and thickness to stand up to the weight and fattiness of red meat.  Consider de-alcholized Shiraz, Merlot, Grenache. 

Zero Alcohol Wine Tips:

ALCOHOL AND KETOSIS:

To support your Keto diet or low-carb lifestyle, opt for quality, non-alcoholic wines that are low-carb and low in sugar. Additionally, alcohol does not align with a keto diet or low-carb lifestyle. Moreover, your liver processes alcohol before nutrients, pausing ketone creation and slowing the ketosis process. Furthermore, your body will metabolize alcohol as fuel before utilizing food, which can decelerate fat burning and may lead to the storage of carbs, fat, and protein as excess body fat. Moreover, alcohol consumption stimulates the appetite, potentially causing overeating.

ALCOHOL AND HEALTH:

Did you know that when you consume alcohol, your liver has to work extra hard to break it down? This can result in damage to your liver. Furthermore, it can elevate your risk of health issues such as inflammation and cancer, particularly with heavy consumption. Additionally, alcohol can disrupt your blood sugar levels, leaving you feeling dehydrated and disrupting your body’s normal functions.

NON-ALCOHOLIC WINE AND HEALTH BENEFITS:

Non-alcoholic wines with minimal carbs and sugar are advantageous for your health. They not only aid in weight management, blood sugar control, and hydration but also contain essential nutrients and antioxidants from grapes that can decrease your risk of health conditions like heart disease. Consequently, since they lack alcohol, they’re ideal for socializing without any adverse effects, promoting feelings of happiness and reduced stress.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU NEED TO PREPARE THIS RECIPE?

WHAT ARE THE SECRETS TO MAKING KETO CROCK-POT BEEF?

Marinate the beef in the red wine for 24 hours. Molecules in red wine called tannins soften fats in the meat, helping to release the taste of beefy goodness. The fat in turn softens the astringent qualities of the wine, helping to mellow the beverage and produce a juicier, more fruit forward flavour.

  • Cut the beef into 5 cm pieces
  • If you’re doing Keto Lazy replace the beef bone broth with all wine!
  • Replace carrots (Keto Non-Compliant) with parsnips or turnips with celery
