Keto Italian cabbage stir-fry
Health Highlights
The combination of tart cabbage, luscious basil, and savory beef is melt-in-your-mouth fabulous.


758 gm Green cabbage
152 gm Butter, vegan
604 gm Beef, ground
1 tbsp Salt
1 tbsp Onion powder
3/4 tsp Black pepper
1 tbsp White wine vinegar
1 tbsp Tomato paste, canned
2 clove(s) Garlic (finely chopped)
86 gm Leek (thinly sliced)
8 tbsp Thai basil, fresh (fresh)
1 cup Mayonnaise (or sour; for serving)


  1. Shred the green cabbage finely with a cheese slicer, sharp knife or in a food processor.
  2. Fry the cabbage in about half of the butter (or substitute olive oil) in a large frying pan or wok on medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until just softened.
  3. Add vinegar, salt, onion powder, and pepper. Stir and fry for 2-3 minutes, or until well incorporated. Reserve sautéed cabbage to a bowl.
  4. Heat the rest of the butter or oil in the pan. Add the garlic and leeks, and sauté for a minute.
  5. Add meat, and continue frying until cooked through. Sauté until most of the liquid has evaporated.
  6. Add tomato paste and mix well. Lower the heat a little and add reserved cabbage and fresh basil. Stir until cooked through.
  7. Adjust seasoning and serve with a dollop of sour cream or mayonnaise and perhaps even a green salad.
