Can you low carb Mississippi roast?

Sorry if this topic was already addressed (the search engine here couldn't find it). Does anyone know how to make the Mississippi Roast low carb. I'm thinking that the ranch packet and au jus packets are not and no idea how much ends up in the meal.

Thank so much!

Isn't this recipe already low carb?

As far as I can tell, roast is 0, butter is 0, au jus is 0, Ranch Dressing mix is 16 and Pepperocinnis are 2.

Total carb count 18 for the entire 4 lb. roast.

Au Jus is something you can buy in a packet? If it's a powder, it probably has some carbs. You could reduce the carbs from the Ranch dressing mix by making your own.

RANCH-STYLE SALAD DRESSING MIX
1 tablespoon buttermilk powder
1 packet True Lemon
1/2 teaspoon granular Splenda
1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon dill
1 teaspoon freeze-dried chives
Pinch cayenne

I googled the nutrition in au jus gravy mix and found it to have ingredients that don't look so healthy. Perhaps we could come up with a replacement with a few seasonings like boullion, a touch of soy sauce, salt, pepper, a tiny bit of garlic seasoning, and onion powder and then forgo the packaged stuff. This would probably be just as tasty, especially with Linda Sue's ranch mix recipe. That being said, the brand that I found had 1 gm of carbohydrate per 1/2 tsp of the mix.

The roast sounds good.

Mississippi roasts are awesome!! They are my favorite way to make pot roast now. I use the mild pepper rings and they pretty much dissolve into the gravy. Love the taste they add. I was just thinking about making one of these. I'm going to try using beef base instead of the au jus packet.

Halldot your icon is what got me into this mess LOL. I have been at my goal weight for at least 8 yrs and I went to Disney for 2 weeks and despite trying to be good.....my body does not Do restaurant food and I'm sure choices I thought were good were very, very bad. Normally with weight I gain suddenly, if I just go back to my normal diet - I lose it. NOT this time!

Thank you ALL! So maybe spice it myself and then add butter, ranch packet, and peppers? Is that the consensus? I didn't know if something in the packets was essential for this to turn out and with beef being SO expensive I didn't want to ruin it.

I've made a similar roast without the packets or butter. Low-carb, freezes very well, very juicy and tasty:
2-3 lb roast (rump, pot, chuck)
1-2 sliced onion
1-2 sliced bell peppers (red, green, yellow ... doesn't matter)
2-15-oz jars of pepperoncini with juice,sliced
1/2 cup water

Cut roast into 4x4 inch chunks. Brown if you want. Put in crock pot or large roasting pan with onions and bell pepper. Sprinkle with seasoning if you want. Pour pepperoncini with juice over beef. Add water. Cover and bake at 275 for about 5 hours, until done and fork tender. In crock pot, time will depend on size of crock, but I will assume you can figure it out.
When meat is done, remove it and shred it with two forks. Return beef to pan, turn off over, and let it sit for an hour or so to mellow. Cool and freeze in portion-sized containers.

If you have a pressure cooker try a roast in it. I think you'll be pleasanty surprised.

Brown the roast on all sides in oil in the pressure cooker. Pour in a box of chicken broth, add a couple teaspoons of beef base. Sprinkle in some onion and garlic flakes and bring the cooker up to 15 pounds pressure and cook about 45 minutes for a 3 pound roast. Let the pressure drop naturally. In my cooker that takes about 30 minutes.

This roast is so good I usually just cut some roast up into bite size pieces add some broth and eat it like a soup.
