Very good!! Was excited to find a keto recipe for a roast that didn’t call for processed packets of au jus or ranch. I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using unsalted butter out of preference. Being from Chicago, this was VERY similar to Italian Beef and I loved that. Flavorful, filling, and makes plenty for a family. I call this recipe a keto keeper!
I made this. Everyone loved it. It was delicious!!!!!
Making this now. Wondering how you serve it?
Please see Note 5 below the recipe for details on serving.
I serve it over riced cauliflower. We love it!
Can the leftovers be frozen? (We’re a two-person household.) And can I use a corned beef brisket?
Freezing leftovers should be fine. I don’t know that I recommend using a corned beef brisket because it will likely take longer to cook, anywhere from 8 to 10 hours, and it may come with seasonings/flavorings that won’t pair well with the ones in this recipe. In other words, you will end up making enough adjustments to the recipe that you might as well find a recipe specifically for corned beef brisket.
Such a great variation from the standard pot roast with potatoes/carrots. Made as is and absolutely loved it! I used the slow cooker function from my instant pot and it turned out perfect!
I made this last night and it was amazing! I love the addition of the pepperocinis to spice up the roast. Thanks!
