WHAT IS ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY?

Roast beef is a dish made by roasting, slow-cooking, or pressure cooking a beef roast. The dish is a staple in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and Ireland, to name a few.

The dish holds deep cultural meaning in the United Kingdom, with ties dating back to 1731.

This roast beef slow cooker recipe also adds a gravy made as simply as possible to avoid added ingredients. It makes the perfect lunch or supper and can easily be refrigerated and heated again for another meal.

KETO ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY INGREDIENTS

Before you try and make this recipe, make sure you have the following ingredients on hand first.

After you have these, you’re set and ready to cook!

HOW TO MAKE ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY

  1. Coat roast liberally with half of the salt
  2. Wait 5 minutes and pat dry with a paper towel

  4. Grab your slow-cooker and add water
  5. Place the roast in the slow-cooker and set to high heat
  6. Cook for at least 6 hours (more time the merrier for a wonderfully delicious result)
  7. After the roast is finished, scoop out 2 cups of the newly created beef broth and place into a small pot (include mushrooms)
  8. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring and sprinkling in xanthan gum in small amounts
  9. After the mixture thickens to the desired gravy consistency, remove from heat
  10. Slice or shred beef roast and top with gravy
  11. Eat, love, repeat!

HOW TO CREATE GRAVY WITHOUT A MIX

Normally, you’d create a gravy with a pre-made mix. These mixes are full of added ingredients and added carbs.

There are, however, a few ways you can create a decent gravy without the additives and carbs. Let’s take a look at a couple of these methods.

USING XANTHAN GUM

The easiest way to thicken liquids is to add a small amount of xanthan gum. In case you’ve never used it before, please keep in mind a tiny amount of xanthan gum can go a long way. Using too much can thicken something too much and ruin the recipe.

Use the amount recommended in the recipe below, stirring constantly over heat until the liquid begins to thicken.

REDUCING THE SAUCE WITH HEAT ONLY

Another simple, yet more time-consuming way is to reduce the sauce by cooking it longer. Continuing to heat the sauce will reduce the water content, therefore making the sauce thicker.

For this recipe, reducing the gravy will result in some thickening. However, it more than likely won’t result in the gravy consistency you are really wanting.

While this does take more time, it removes the added ingredient of xanthan gum or another thickener.

STORING LEFTOVER ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY

Storing your leftovers is very easy! When storing your leftovers, you should store them in an air-tight container. Separate the gravy and the beef. Don’t store them together!

Keep both in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. If you still have leftovers after this time, it’s probably best to discard them to be safe.

WHAT TO EAT WITH KETO ROAST BEEF AND GRAVY

Even though a nice roast beef recipe can be incredibly filling, you might want to add a delicious side dish to the mix.
