The Ketogenic diet is one of the most popular diets in the United States today.
It’s a high-fat and low-carb diet that is designed to help followers lose weight by metabolizing excess body fat instead of the carbohydrates that are stored in food.
Following a keto diet can be a little tricky at times as there are so many common and staple foods that are high carb and don’t fit into this diet.
However, this doesn’t mean that your diet has to be plain and boring as there are still so many delicious meals you can make that are Keto.
You can also make many great Keto meals in your Crockpot or slow cooker.
These wonderful kitchen appliances cook your food at lower temperatures and over longer periods of time to ensure that all of the delicious flavors are released.
They can make cheaper cuts of meat more tender and tasty and they cut down on the amount of time you need to spend at the stovetop!
That’s why we’ve created this list of the 15 best Keto Crockpot recipes to try today (see also “Best Keto Air Fryer Recipes To Try“). We’ve picked a variety of recipes so no matter what you’re looking for, there is sure to be a dish for you.
1. Crack Chicken Recipe (Crockpot)
For our first recipe, we’ve chosen a comfort food that is sure to become a family favorite if it isn’t one already.
Crack chicken is a very popular and common recipe and it’s perfect for making in a Crockpot as it’s all cooking time and short prep time.
The recipe is made from chicken breasts which are seasoned with herbs and spices and layered with cream cheese. After a few hours of cooking, add some cheddar, bacon bits, and green onions for the finishing touches.
2. Keto Beef Stew (Slow Cooker or Oven)
Stew is one of the most common recipes that Crockpots and slow cookers are used for. As Crockpots allow flavors to slowly develop and soften tough meat, this makes them the best way to cook stew.
Many stews have potatoes included but this stew is Keto so it leaves them out.
There are still plenty of other vegetables, however, as well as some stewing beef and a delicious, thick gravy made with beef broth, tomato paste, and a little soy sauce.
3. Slow Cooker Oxtail Stew
If stews are the most common dish made in Crockpots, then soups might be the second. Oxtail comes from a cow’s tail and is a very fatty cut of meat that greatly benefits from a Crockpot’s slower cooking style.
If you like soup with a very strong taste of beef, then Oxtail is ideal for you.
As well as the oxtail, you will need tomatoes, red wine, leeks, Italian peppers, yellow onion, a little flour, and some seasonings. This is a long dish to make so get it cooking in the morning and eat it at dinnertime.
4. CrockPot Tuscan Garlic Chicken Thighs With Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Look at all of the wonderful colors in this dish! Believe us when we say that it looks just as good as it sounds and tastes.
It’s best made with skinless but bone-in chicken thighs. You will need to begin preparing the sauce in a saucepan before transferring it to the Crockpot but this prep will only take around 10 minutes.
The majority of the cooking still occurs in the Crockpot so after the prep is done, place all of the ingredients inside and let it cook.
5. Slow Cooker Steak Fajitas
Mexican food is one of our favorites but it isn’t Keto-friendly because of the presence of rice in so many of the recipes.
That’s where fajitas come in handy as these never have any rice and are easy to eat on a Keto diet.
There are instructions to make your own fajita seasoning in this recipe. The main bulk of the meal has all of the ingredients you’d expect from fajitas such as beef, bell peppers, and tomatoes.
6. Classic Crockpot Keto Meatloaf
Meatloaf is a traditional family favorite and it can easily fit into a Keto diet, depending on what you decide to serve with it. It’s also easy to make in a Crockpot, as you’ll find in this recipe.
The meatloaf is made from beef, sausage, onion, sage, and flaxseed meal and is full of protein.
The recipe also gives you instructions on how to make a tomato-based sauce for the meatloaf and this should be added to your Crockpot for the last hour of the cooking time.
7. Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
Beef stroganoff is an ideal dish for a midweek meal. It only takes about 10 minutes to prep and eight hours to cook, so you can get it ready in the morning and it’ll be finished by dinner time!
The key to making the stroganoff creamy is to use a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, some sour cream, and some cream cheese.
Add some more mushrooms to the mix and you’ve got a winning dish your family is sure to love.
8. Crockpot Creamy Garlic Pork Loin
This is our first pork dish in this article and it’s also one of our favorite recipes.
Pork is often overlooked as a meat that can be cooked in a Crockpot but this delicious recipe will prove that pork is perfect for Crockpots too!
The pork is cooked in a thick and creamy sauce that is made with chicken stock, wine, shallots, garlic, thyme, cornstarch, and heavy cream.
The latter two ingredients are only added towards the end of the cooking process and it results in a well-seasoned and moist pork loin.
9. Slow Cooker Meatballs & Zoodle
Pasta noodles may be off the menu when you’re on a Keto diet but that just leaves the door open for the healthier and just as delicious zucchini noodles!
You will make your own meatballs, sauce, and noodles for this recipe so you can be sure that everything is healthy and low-carb.
The zoodles will only be added at the end of the cooking time and take around 15 minutes.
10. Keto Chili (Crock Pot)
Chili is a great comfort food that will keep you full and warm on cooler days. Unfortunately, most chili recipes are not compatible with Keto diets because of the included kidney beans.
Thankfully, this recipe leaves out the kidney beans but keeps in all of the flavors! It is suitable for Keto diets and is just as delicious.
It uses both ground beef and spicy sausage and you can adjust some of the ingredients to get the spice level you want.
11. Easy Keto Broccoli Cheese Slow Cooker Soup
This is a deliciously creamy soup that will taste great on cold days. Cheese and broccoli are a great pair and this soup is packed with both.
In fact, there are three different types of cheese in this recipe! The different types of cheese and a cup of heavy cream are what make this soup as creamy as it is.
13. Slow Cooker Garlic Chicken Alfredo With Broccoli
This is another recipe that stars broccoli only this time, the vegetable is paired with chicken breasts.
The recipe calls for you to make your own Alfredo sauce and this is easily done. All you need is heavy whipping cream, parmesan cheese, chicken broth, and a few seasonings to get this delicious and creamy sauce.
14. Keto Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken
Buffalo chicken is one of the most delicious ways to prepare chicken.
It’s also very versatile as it can be served with a variety of different sides. When following a Keto-diet, we especially love serving it with cauliflower rice.
This recipe is easy to make as it uses buffalo sauce and only adds a few extra ingredients to the chicken.
It only takes five minutes to prepare and cooks in three hours so it’s one of the quickest Crockpot recipes on this list as well.
15. Slow Cooker Salmon With Creamy Lemon Sauce
After so many meat dishes, we thought that we would finish our list with a fish dish instead.
Crockpots will cook salmon very effectively and you don’t have to worry about the fish drying out as long as you follow the recipe.
The creamy lemon sauce is made from chicken broth (or white wine) with heavy cream, lemon juice, and lemon zest. It gives the salmon a great flavor and keeps it moist.
In this article, we listed the 15 best Keto Crockpot recipes to try today (see also “Low Carb Crock Pot Recipes To Try“). We picked a variety of different recipes using many different ingredients but made certain that every recipe is suitable for a Keto diet.
