Keto Sausage and Cabbage Skillet

by Sheryl

Do you need one-pan dinner for an easy low carb? This chocolate sausage is ready in less than 20 minutes and contains less than 6 carbs per serving! The sausage is the star of the dish and I could just have made a recipe with peppers and onions for the polished smoked sausage. The sausages may contain hidden sweeteners and fillers to increase the carbohydrates with which the lists of ingredients for various brands should be checked and compared.

Cabbage is also a good option for anyone who watches their carbs and eats keto. It is firm in texture and has a milder taste than other cruciferous species, such as kale, broccoli, and Brussels. And, as opposed to most leafy greens, even after cooking it retains its pleasant crunch. Try it all from stir-fries and slaws to skillet dinners.


1 (12 oz) package of smoked sausage
1 tbsp butter
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
4 cups cabbage, chopped into bite-size pieces
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 onion powder
1/4 paprika


1. Over medium heat, heat a 12-inch skillet. Spray or add 1 olive oil teaspoon with cooking spray. Cook the sausage until brown and slightly crisp.

2. Take the sausage out from the pan and let it rest.

3. Stir in butter, garlic, chopped cabbage, and spices.

4. Fry the cabbage until you reach your desired tenderness. It takes 3-4 minutes if you want more crunch. It’s closer to 10 minutes if you love your cabbage very tenderly.

5. Add the cooked sausage and stir until the cabbage reaches its desired texture.


1. Most chopped cabbage recipes call for chopped onions when you add the garlic, you can add 1/2 cup of chopped onion. But this increases the number of carbs in each serving by 7 net carbs.

2. Sausage and cabbage can be cut and cooled up to 3 days in advance separately.

3. Cool the leftovers in a container with airtight until 4 days
