This 5-Ingredient Mississippi Pot Roast Keto style is a delicious way to cook beef with peppers and onions. It’s so flavorful!
This Mississippi Pot Roast Keto style is 100% absolutely without a doubt one of the most delicious things I’ve ever made. Like all good things, it takes time and it’s one of those recipes that will test your willpower and patience not to sneak a bite before it’s finished. You’ll be glad you put in the time and effort (minimal effort required) to serve this recipe to your family, friends, and possibly a neighbor or two that caught a whiff of the deliciousness wafting through the air.
You’ll notice in the recipe I decided to use hot cherry peppers, rather than the more traditional pepperoncini peppers. Partly because I like a little more spice, and partly because I could not for the life of me, find pepperoncini peppers that weren’t artificially colored with yellow #5.
This is one of those soapbox issues for me, so I’ll try and keep my ranting subdued and brief, but what possible reason do brands have to justify the need to make yellow foods yellow-er! There is nothing natural or appetizing about eating food that shares the same shade of yellow or brighter than a highlighter!!! I could keep going, but I think you know where I stand on this.
Now that I’ve yelled about something, let me praise something. A few weeks ago I received an email from a farmer thanking me for promoting and touting the benefits of grass-fed beef. I was taken back, it should be me thanking them. Grass-fed farmers are an integral (and under-appreciated) part of the agriculture system as well as the public health system in the U.S. It takes a lot more time, money, and effort for a grass-fed farmer to supply the consumer with quality meat and dairy than it does for a CAFO (confined animal feeding operation), and I applaud you for all that you do.

Mississippi Pot Roast, Keto Style
- 3 lb beef shoulder roast we used ButcherBox
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 1/3 cup hot cherry peppers
- 1 white onion sliced
- 3 cups beef bone broth
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 teaspoon dried chives
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Heat the butter in a 5-quart dutch oven, season the shoulder roast with salt and pepper. Once the butter is hot add in the roast and sear about 5 minutes per side until a crust starts to form.
- Top the roast with the onions and hot cherry peppers, sprinkle over the spices and pour over the broth. Bring to a low simmer and cover, cooking for about 3 hours.
- Once the time is up, shred the beef and add it back to the pot with the sauce which should now resemble gravy. Serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
