St Patrick's Day wouldn't be complete without corned beef and cabbage, which is fantastically a tasty and keto dish!
The corned beef is delicious and juicy, and a great keto meal prep idea that you can repurpose into chaffel sandwiches, cabbage roll-ups, and more.
Cabbage also packs a tasty punch and packed with B vitamins, Vitamin K, C, and magnesium, which is essential on a keto diet.
While you may not have loved cabbage as a kid, this keto glow-up is something you'll adore. It's crunchy, and oh so satisfying!
Keto Corned Beef and Cabbage
You don't have to skip corned beef and cabbage this St Patrick's Day. The trick is to swap out carb-heavy beers for a light option with low-carbs.
There are many types of keto-friendly beers to choose from, and your local liquor store can pint people 21+ in the right direction.
You can also omit the beer from this recipe, there are plenty of flavors.
- 1/2 head cabbage, shredded
- 1 (4-5 lb) corned beef brisket
- Everything but the Bagel seasoning
- 6 oz. "light" low-carb beer
- 2 quarts water
- 1 cup kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1 teaspoon black peppercorns
- 2 bay leaves
For the Cabbage:
- Chop the cabbage into wedges. Season with avocado oil and Everything but the Bagel seasoning.
- Place in the oven for 30 mins at 350F or until golden brown and crispy.
For the Corned Beef:
- Place the seasoning and water into a stockpot. Cook on a medium to high heat until it has all dissolved.
- Add the brisket, and allow to simmer gently for up to 3 hours, or until cooked all the way through. The meat should become tender the touch.
- Finish in an oven on broil or a cast iron skillet, slice, and serve with cabbage and any sides of your choice.
For a more traditional take on potatoes, you can make cauliflower mash or use jicama or radishes to create a keto mash.
Be sure to make extra corned beef for keto leftovers! You can turn chaffels (the mighty cheese waffle) into a delicious low-carb Rubeun sandwich!
