How to make fried cabbage with beef:
(Scroll down for the full printable recipe including nutritional information.)
- Slice a large onion and chop a medium-sized head of cabbage into coarse strips.
- Heat the olive oil (or bacon fat) in a large skillet over high heat, add the onions and saute until they start to turn brown.
- While the onions are cooking, chop the beef (or shred it if you prefer).
- When onions are cooked, add cabbage, season with freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of salt, turn heat to medium-high, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until cabbage begins to soften. Flip the cabbage a few times until the edges are brown.
- When the cabbage is partially cooked, add the beef.
- Cook 3-5 minutes more, stirring a few times. This is done when the cabbage turns a little brown on the edges and the browned beef is hot.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
- Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator and reheated in a hot skillet, although this is best when preparing them.

Low Carb Diet / Low Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Beef with fried cabbage is a good dish for any low-glycemic or low-carb diet, including keto. Corned Beef is not recommended for the South Beach Diet, but I personally ignore it when it’s St. Patrick’s Day!
