Low Carb Corned Beef Cabbage Rolls

Keto Recipes > Dinner

Okay, okay. I know I promised to bring you savory mug cakes and I definitely will – I just thought a nice intermittent break would be useful for the people that don’t always enjoy mug cakes. Don’t worry though, they’re coming soon!

These cabbage rolls are really an awesome way to eat corned beef. I knew for sure I was making corned beef for St. Patty’s day (and sorry I didn’t post this yesterday, I had it for dinner last night), but I didn’t know what way I would eat it. Once I took the cabbage out, I know immediately what I was going to do!

The corned beef came out delicious – absolutely tender, nice and fatty on the top, and a great texture for a cabbage wrap. The white wine and coffee (though some of you won’t believe me) really help deepen the flavors of the meat. Seriously, if you’ve never paired these 2 ingredients together, it’s about time you did!

The onions and lemon are totally optional, but they add that hint of sweetness that really takes this over the edge. You’re welcome to add sauces of your choice too – a keto BBQ sauce would do really well, though it’d mask over a lot of the fantastic flavors of the meat. It’s all up to you – if you do end up doing something unique leave a comment and let me know what you did!
