  • 2 Tbsp. Bacon Fat avocado oil or butter can be substituted
  • 1 small Onion peeled and chopped
  • 3 medium Carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1 Head Cabbage cored and coarsely chopped, can reduce to 1/2 head for lower carbs
  • 1/3 Cup Water
  • 1 Lb. Leftover Corned Beef or Corned Beef From The Deli
  • 1/2 tsp. Sea Salt
  • Ground Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. Celery Seed Powder
  • Keto Thousand Island Dressing for serving


  • In a large skillet or dutch oven, add the bacon fat and melt over medium heat.
  • Chop the carrots and onion then add to the skillet. Saute until tender, around 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped cabbage and water. Cover, leaving the lid slightly vented, and cook 10 minutes or until cabbage is mostly tender but still has a slight bite to it. Stir occasionally as needed.
  • Cut the corned beef into bite-sized pieces and add to the skillet. Cover, leaving the lid slightly vented, and cook until the beef is heated through and the cabbage is tender - around 3 minutes.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and celery seed powder. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  • Serve drizzled with Keto Thousand Island Dressing.


  • Nutrition Facts do not include dressing. To reduce the carbs only use 1/2 head of cabbage, which would make each serving have 5 net carbs.
  • To reduce the carbs even further only use 1/2 head of cabbage, 2 carrots, and 1/2 onion. This brings each serving down to only 2 net carbs.  However, the carrots and onion add a lot of flavor so do this at your own risk!
  • When buying corned beef from the deli, have it cut on the thicker side - from a three to a five.
  • I recommend using bacon fat because it adds great flavor! If you don't have bacon fat though, you can sub butter or avocado oil.
  • Even though this can be eaten plain, I recommend serving it with Keto Thousand Island Dressing!  It adds a little something extra and takes the dish to the next level.
