Quick and easy keto friendly ground beef dinner skillet! Basically, unstuffed cabbage rolls made in just one pan. A cheap and easy low carb dinner idea!

How To Make Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls In Just One Pan

The main ingredients for this low carb meal are just ground beef, cabbage, diced tomatoes, seasoning, and shredded cheese. You really can customize from there! I prefer sautéed bell pepper and onion, but you could add any other veggies you happen to have on hand.

You’ll simply start by browning the ground beef along with the chopped peppers and onions in a large pan over medium heat.

Next, stir the chopped cabbage, canned tomatoes, and seasoning in with your beef; toss everything together really well. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 20 minutes.

Do a taste test to see if you need more seasoning, and then sprinkle the cheese over top.   Cover the pan with your lid for a few minutes to allow the cheese to melt before you grab a fork to dig in.

If you are making this for the entire family, I’d also suggest some rice on the side for the kids or anyone who isn’t following a low carb diet. You could also add cauliflower rice, but I think it’s hearty and filling just on its own.

Course: Main Course
Keyword: cabbage, dinner, easy meals, ground beef, healthy, keto, low carb
Servings: 8
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion (chopped)
  • 1 bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 small head of cabbage (cored & chopped)
  • 1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 tsp Tony Chachere's creole seasoning (*see notes)
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Brown the beef in a large skillet over medium heat. Remove excess fat if there is more than a few tablespoons (a little extra fat is ok).

  2. Add the chopped onion and bell pepper and continue to cook for 3-4 minutes.

  3. Stir in the cabbage, diced tomatoes and all seasoning to the pan with the ground beef. Cover with a lid and cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Do a taste test and season with additional salt or seasoning, if needed.

  4. Sprinkle the cheese over top and cover again until the cheese is melted.

Recipe Notes
  • If you don't have Tony Chachere's, you're missing out. I use this seasoning for just about everything including avocado toast, scrambled eggs, pasta, and more. But if you don't have it on hand, no worries! Just be sure to replace it with some salt and other seasonings of your choice.
  • Time Saving Tip: You can buy pre-diced onion and bell pepper in the produce section of most grocery stores.
