Keto Reuben Cabbage Rolls

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

Do you love Reuben sandwiches? I love this adult version of grilled cheese. The classic Reuben piles meat, Swiss, sauerkraut, and dressing between slices of grilled rye bread. For simplicity, we replace the bread with cabbage rolls and turn the whole thing into a delicious casserole.

We included a recipe for Thousand Island dressing, but if you have a premade dressing that you like better then feel free to use it. Just make sure that it’s sugar-free because many of them have added sugar. If you want to take things to the next level, then add some Swiss cheese.

Yields 8 servings of Keto Reuben Cabbage Rolls

The Execution

Cabbage rolls:

  • 8 large cabbage leaves
  • 8 ounces pastrami, chopped up
  • 1½ cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup drained sauerkraut

Thousand Island Dressing:

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sugar-free ketchup
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

The Preparation

1. Preheat your oven to 350F and boil some water. Place the cabbage leaves in a large bowl then pour the boiling water over the top. Allow the leaves to sit for 3-5 minutes before removing them. You want the leaves to have a structure to them but be soft enough to manipulate and roll. Set the leaves aside.
