Keto Braised-Cabbage with Creamy Mustard Sauce

A quick sear of cabbage, a tuck in the oven with some broth, a bit of seasoning, and a luscious cream sauce result in a fantastic dish that’s been known to induce table slapping and OMGs. Eat it on its own or pair it with roasted chicken or fish. Lots of fat macros leave plenty of room for added protein.
Serves 6 Serving: 1 Wedge

Ingredients List

  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 head green cabbage, cut into 6 equal wedges, keeping core intact
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • cups chicken broth
  • tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 shallot, finely minced
  • 2 Tbsp stone-ground mustard
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the oil. When shimmering hot, add half of the cabbage wedges, cut-side down. Sear until the side touching the pan is golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and repeat on the other cut side. Transfer to a large, shallow baking dish. Repeat with the remaining oil and cabbage wedges. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  • Return the skillet to medium-high. Add the broth, thyme, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Pour the seasoned broth from the skillet over the seared cabbage in the baking dish, cover with aluminum foil, and bake until the cabbage core is fork-tender, about 30 minutes. Remove the cabbage wedges to a platter, cover loosely with foil to keep warm, then reserve the braising liquid in a bowl.
  • Using the same skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and a bit golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the reserved braising liquid, bring to a boil over high heat, and let the liquid reduce by about half, stirring and scraping often, 4 to 5 minutes. Turn the heat to medium/medium-high, stir in the mustard and the heavy cream and let simmer, stirring often, until the sauce reduces by half, 4 to 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the sauce over the cabbage wedges and serve.

    Good heavens is this recipe delicious, And so easy to make! I love the rich, savory flavor of the cabbage, and the sauce is to die for. I am happy to double my portion and eat it as a meal rather than a side dish!
