Beef and Cabbage Casserole

This Cheesy Beef and Cabbage Casserole recipe is the perfect dish to warm you from the inside out. Not only is it hearty, it’s also incredibly healthy! Low carb recipes can be delicious; this is a great example! 

Three weeks ago Mr. Saucy decided it was time for him to lose some weight and get more fit. I was thrilled and offered to do anything I could to facilitate his goals. The first item on the agenda was for him to start moving. Since he works from home building our company’s website and online store, he sits a lot. The second item was for him to change how he ate.

I have always prepared healthy foods, that wasn’t the issue. His issues were portion control and his love of hamburgers and frozen pizza. Now, hamburgers and frozen pizza wouldn’t be so bad every once in a while. But he’d eat two monster burgers for supper, two for lunch the next day, and when he ate frozen pizza (I never joined that one), he’d eat the entire pizza.

In three weeks, we’ve been walking every day. Also in three weeks I’ve worked with him on a low-carb lifestyle. I don’t like the D-word. He’s losing pounds and more importantly, inches. I’m so proud of him! I have been preparing low-carb foods and this casserole is an example of what I’ve made. The best part is he loved it. And he’s been loving all of the foods I’m making for him. That’s pretty key in being able to stick with a new eating plan.

This recipe is very similar to a Cabbage Beef Soup I make, but in casserole form. It contains beef, cabbage, onion, tomatoes with green chilies, cheese and some spices. If you prepare it in an oven-proof skillet, it can be a one-pan meal.

You don’t have to be living a low-carb lifestyle to enjoy this dish! Give it a try!

About P ~ The Saucy Southerner

I started cooking when I was ten years old. For me, the process of cooking, from inception of a dish, to the execution, to the washing of the pots is sheer delight. I am now retired from a business I still own, in partnership with my husband. I used to work six days a week and still cook every night. Now, I'm gardening, still cooking, always having fun and hoping to share my joy with you. Thank you for reading...and commenting! P~

    Love your recipes. Have shared many with church friends. My lung cancer is down to a minimum. My doctor is very pleased as am I. I start my third year of chemo next month and fortunately it has not interfered with my appetite. Best to you and Mr. Saucy. PS. I am teaching fly fishing and tying at my church with
    Steve Hudson. He has written some great FF books. I’ll try to send a couple to you to look at and maybe sell. Susan Burdick
