Spicy Salami Keto Braised Cabbage

Spicy Salami Keto Braised Cabbage

Cabbage is an easy keto staple, especially for simple side dishes. It loves butter and olive oil, can easily be made into a crunchy slaw or decadent stew and absorbs whatever flavours you throw at it. This Keto Braised Cabbage recipe is the perfect “whats in the fridge” kind of side dish!


I have used some left over sun-dried tomatoes and baked eggplant this time, but have also used bacon, ham, chorizo sausage, fresh tomato, zucchini and just about anything else you can think of.


The spice can be dialled up as much as you like. I use a hot hungarian salami and a bit of chilli flakes but you can omit these for a more mild side dish.


This Keto Braised Cabbage is perfect with a simple meat main, such as my Greek Lamb Keto MeatballsĀ or Keto Lamb Cutlets with Harissa
