Need an EASY & DELICIOUS crowd pleasing meal idea using the Instant Pot that’s also Keto and Low Carb?

You’ve gotta try out this simple to make Italian Beef Roast! It’s seriously the BEST roast I’ve made in a very long time! This yummy dinner is full of flavor, has just a few ingredients, and needs very little prep time.

I’ve actually been hesitant to try a pot roast in the Instant Pot, as I’ve heard that they can come out kinda tough. However, let me assure you, this roast was amazingly tender!

Low Carb Instant Pot Italian Beef Roast

You've gotta try this flavorful roast using Peperoncino peppers and Italian seasonings for an easy Keto and Low Carb meal idea the entire family will LOVE!

Serves: 5-6

Cook Time: 70 minutes




  • Step 1:

    Set Instant Pot to Saute, and heat oil.

  • Step 2:

    Brown meat on both sides for 5-6 minutes.

  • Step 3:

    Add half jar of Peperoncini peppers, and 1/4 cup of the juice.

  • Step 4:

    Add the onion, beef broth, garlic, and seasonings.

  • Step 5:

    Close lid, turn valve to sealing, and set to 70 minutes on Manual (High).

  • Step 6:

    After cook time is finished, let natural release for about 15 minutes, then release the rest of pressure, and shred roast.

  • Step 7:

    Serve warm with remaining sliced Peperoncini peppers as desired.

Additional Notes

Note that an Italian dressing dry seasoning packet can be used instead of the above seasonings as a time saver for this recipe!

Tip: Your cook time may vary a little with roast size in the Instant Pot. My roast was 3.2 pounds and I searched online to find 70 minutes was about average for a cook time, and added a 15 minutes natural release with it. If I had a larger 5-6 pound roast, most sites say 80-90 minutes for super tender meat.

I love that this meal can be served in numerous ways!

My husband and I ate our roast along with some cauliflower rice as a low carb option, and the kids had sandwiches. If you wanted to make this same roast in a slow cooker instead, that’s definitely an option. I just think it’s cool to have a tender roast done in such little time and with minimal effort!  Leftovers are delicious as well!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two?
