Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef
Use leftover corned beef or corned beef from the deli, then grab some cabbage and make tasty low-carb Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef!
You might have noticed that I love St. Patrick’s Day and all the Irish-American foods that are associated with it! I’ve shared Low-Carb and Keto Corned Beef Recipes and Kalyn’s Top Ten Low-Carb and Keto Recipes with Cabbage, and if you happen to end up with some leftover corned beef and cabbage you can’t go wrong with my Leftover Corned Beef Low-Carb Reuben Bake.
But that’s a relatively complex recipe with a few steps, and if you just have a little corned beef left over and want something quick, I highly recommend this Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef. Of course this is a riff on the Fried Cabbage with Bacon that’s so good (and perfect right now while cabbage is so cheap.)
For this easy corned-beef and cabbage dinner you only need about half a pound of leftover corned beef plus an onion, a small head of cabbage, olive oil (or bacon fat), and a little salt and pepper, and it can be on the table in about 20 minutes! I know not everyone enjoys cabbage or corned beef, but if you’re a fan of those ingredients like I am, I bet you’ll love Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef for a quick dinner!
How to Make Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe including nutritional information.)
- Cut up a large onion into slivers and coarsely chop a medium head of cabbage.
- Heat olive oil (or bacon grease) in a large frying pan over high heat, add onions, and cook until they’re just starting to brown.
- While onions cook, chop up the corned beef (or shred apart if you prefer.)
- When onions are browned, add the cabbage, season with fresh ground black pepper and a little salt, turn heat to medium-high, and cook about 5 minutes, or until the cabbage is starting to soften. Stir the cabbage several times so the edges will brown.
- When the cabbage is partly done, add the corned beef.
- Cook 3-5 minutes more, turning a few times. It’s done when the cabbage is slightly browned on the edges and corned beef is hot.
- Serve right away and enjoy!
- Leftovers can be kept in the fridge and reheated in a hot frying pan, although this is best right when you make it.

Low-Carb Diet / Low-Glycemic Diet / South Beach Diet Suggestions:
Fried Cabbage with Corned Beef is a good dish for any low-glycemic or low-carb diet, including Keto. Corned Beef isn’t really recommended for the South Beach Diet, but personally I would ignore that when it’s St. Patrick/’s Day!
