What is a Good Substitute for Potatoes in Pot Roast?
If you are following the Keto Diet, then you are probably not going to serve this pot roast with potatoes. You can serve the following options for a good substitute for potatoes:
Tips for the Best Low Carb Pot Roast:
- Instant Pot Recommendation – You will need an electric pressure cooker for this recipe. I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart if you prefer.
- Adding Vegetables – Make sure to add the vegetables after the roast has finished cooking in the pressure cooker. This will prevent them from getting mushy.
- Cut of Meat – Make sure to use a tougher type of meat that will hold up. Try using rump roast, chuck roast, brisket or round roast. The pressure cooker will make it tender.
- Brown Roast – It is not necessary but you can sear the roast prior to cooking. Just use the saute setting and put the roast inside with about a tablespoon of oil. Sear for a couple of minutes per side until it is browned.
- Pick the Best Roast – Look for a roast that has a lot of marbling. This will result in a tender finished product.
- Cut Roast – If you are short on time, cut the roast into pieces. I would suggest 2 to 3? pieces and reduce the cooking time to 40 minutes.
- Dutch Oven – This roast can also be prepared in your Dutch Oven.
Is Roast Beef Low in Carbs?

More ideas for Keto Instant Pot Roast:
You can change this recipe up lots of various ways. Green beans are also good added to the roast. These are great options if you want to make this a one pot meal.
Sometimes I will add veggies if it is a really busy week. That way I have less to do and everything I need is already in the pressure cooker. The veggies taste awesome from all the flavors of the roast.
Another options is to make Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes. Cauliflower rice is also a good option. If it is seasoned correctly, most people won’t know the difference.
Do you need to Brown the Roast before cooking?
It is totally optional but you can can brown the roast first if you want for extra added flavor. The roast is amazing either way but this does add a little extra flavor.
No worries if you skip this step though because the roast will still turn out fabulous. I am always running behind it seems so truthfully, I often skip this step.
The roast is amazing however you make it.

The pressure cooker gets dinner on the table fast so you don’t have to heat up the oven all day. This makes it even better to enjoy during those hot summer months.
How to Store Leftovers:
Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 3-5 days or you can freeze the leftovers for up to 3 months.
We usually don’t have a lot of leftovers, but when we do this is the perfect lunch. I like to place in individual containers with some vegetables.
