These cabbage rolls have a ground beef filling that is combined with riced cauliflower and flavored with cheddar cheese and a little jalapeno for a slight heat factor. A mouthwatering meal almost like your mom’s but still just as satisfying and comforting!

Low Carb Cabbage Rolls

Cabbage Rolls bring back childhood memories and a lot of comfort. Everytime I would make cabbage rolls on my own I would remember Mom making them at home for our family. This on it’s own would bring me comfort and warmth!

Low Carb Cabbage Rolls

Since I eat Keto now, cabbage rolls had to take on a new form for me. Rice is out of the picture and in its place is the “new rice” called cauliflower! The beef in this recipe has to have great taste and for me that is Certified Angus Beef ® brand. Great tasting beef makes all the difference in a recipe!

Low Carb Cabbage Rolls

While there is nothing wrong with a traditional cabbage roll flavor wise, I decided that since I am a huge jalapeno fan, that I had use that instead of a regular bell pepper. I think of these as a modernized, keto friendly recipe that I can be completely devour with no guilt!

Low Carb Cabbage Rolls

 

Making cabbage rolls can be time consuming, but, once you give it a try, you will find it really isn’t that hard at all! Steaming the whole head of cabbage for a just few minutes will soften the cabbage leaves enough to make them easy to remove from the head as well as keep them sturdy enough for rolling.

    What a fun idea! I don’t think I’ve ever made cabbage rolls at home, but that filling sounds absolutely delicious…in fact, I can’t make any promises that the filling will even make it into the cabbage. I might just have to cook it and eat it with a spoon! 🙂 Thanks for the fun recipe idea, Shelby!

      The filling is delicious! I was very pleased with the result using cauliflower rice 🙂

    Cabbage rolls are my all time favorite comfort food, these are going on the menu this week, and I bet the angus beef puts them right over the top!

    We at home make the Lebanese version of stuffed cabbage rolls, but never thought of using rice cauliflower instead of rice. That’s genius! Low carb and still full of flavor!!

    Do you have recipe for the Low carb pasta sauce?

    • Shelby January 4, 2019 at 8:27 am - Reply

      Hi Minaz, I used a prepared sauce I bought at the grocery. Rao’s is an excellent brand for a sauce. I’m pretty sure you could google low carb pasta sauce recipes on the internet and find one also. Unfortunately, at this point in time, I don’t have one on my blog. Thanks for bringing this up as I now will attempt to create a recipe for the blog!

    I made this last night and it was fantastic! Thank you. The leftovers were even better! I added a 1/2 pound of mild Italian sausage to mine, otherwise I followed the recipe exactly!

      Hi Lin, thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and sausage sounds great!
