Low Carb Cheesy Beef and Vegetable Bake

Rule #70: Eat your vegetables.

It’s the Low Carb Life over here at our house these days. We’re trying our best to eat a little better, but never at the loss of good flavor. This Low Carb Cheesy Beef and Vegetable Bake is a spin on traditional Stuffed Cabbage that would normally call for rice. Instead of going that route, I opted for cauliflower rice and shredded cabbage (and you can’t taste either, I promise)! It’s a bunch of Cheesy, Beefy, Vegetable-y goodness!

Here’s how we make our Low Carb Cheesy Beef and Vegetable Bake:

First, heat some olive oil in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Sauté a diced yellow onion until translucent. Then add in 2 minced garlic cloves; sauté until fragrant. Add in 1 lb. ground beef (sirloin).

While the onion is cooking, go ahead and get your spices together: Kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, paprika, smoked paprika (it’s okay to just use more of the regular if you don’t have smoked paprika), and dried thyme leaves.

Sprinkle the seasoning all over the beef and onion mixture. When the beef is about halfway done browning, you’re going to add in your riced cauliflower and shredded cabbage.

It looks like a lot, but the veggies cook down perfectly to make a nice balance with the meat.

Continue cooking until the meat is browned all the way and veggies have softened.

Sprinkle on the rest of your cheese.

Now, at this point, you could cover with foil and refrigerate/freeze until you’re ready to bake it. If you freeze it, make sure you thaw it overnight in the fridge before baking it.

Bake at 350, uncovered, for 40 minutes.
