I calculated macros for a 3.5 lb roast, with less fat eaten, as everyone’s tolerance for the fatty stuff on a roast is different. Your protein may vary, depending on the size and cut of your roast and whether or not you trim it.
- 3-4 lb (48-64 oz / 1361- 1814 g) Beef roast, trimmed of excess fat, if desired
- 1 (12 fl oz/ 355 ml) can Zevia Cola (or similar sugar-free cola)
- 1 c (8 fl oz/ 237 ml) beef broth
- 2 tbsp dehydrated minced onion flakes
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp dried parsley flakes
- 1 tsp celery salt
- 1/8 tsp smoked paprika
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- 1/2 tsp or more glucomannan powder to thicken, as desired
- Place roast in a large slow cooker, and sprinkle with all seasonings (except konjac).
- Pour cola and beef broth over the roast.
- Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours, as desired, or until tender and falling apart.
- Remove roast and cover with foil to rest.
- Ladle out the liquid left in the pot into a large skillet or saucepan. You may skim off any visible fat, if desired.
- Over high heat, bring the liquid to a simmer and sprinkle glucomannan powder over the top, whisking in well.
- Cook to reduce for five minutes on high, until it is as thick as desired. If you have more than 2 cups liquid from the pot, you may add another 1/4 tsp or more glucomannan to thicken if needed. Taste and season with extra salt and pepper, if desired or needed.
- Serve roast toped with gravy.
Glucomannan powder adds 2 g total carbs (all of which is dietary fiber) per every additional 1/2 tsp you add to the entire recipe. Spread across ten servings, it is a miniscule increase to the total carb count per serving (0.2 g total), and a 0 g increase to NET carbs.
Per 1/10 recipe: 404 cal, 43 g protein, 24 g fat, 1.42 g carbs, 0.4 g fiber, 1.02 g NET carbs
