FAQs for Keto Ground Beef Stroganoff Casserole with Cabbage

What is angel hair cabbage?

Angel hair cabbage is simply pre-shredded, packaged green cabbage. It gets its name from being shredded so finely, like angel hair pasta. You can easily find it in most grocery stores near the bagged salads.

Is sour cream keto?

Sometimes people see the sour cream listed and wonder if it is keto-friendly. The answer is yes, it absolutely is. I would always go for full-fat sour cream.

    If you can avoid using plastic bag. encased foods, please do – it’s terrible for the earth. This is really yummy

      I agree. I do avoid it when I can and have a food processor for recipes like this. It’s great if you can do it! I’m glad you enjoyed the recipe.

    When do you as the shredded cabbage?

      I’m not sure I understand. I just use regular green cabbage. You can use a food processor to shred it, a knife and cutting board, or the preshredded bags in the grocery store. Does that help?

    I made this recipe this evening and it tasted great. My question is that your recipe doesn’t really tell you what to do with the cabbage after you steam it. I placed it in the bottom of the casserole dish and used a couple papaer towels to squeeze out most of the liquid then I added the meat mixture on top of the cabbage. I didn’t have provolone cheese but I did have asiago cheese and added that to the topping. It was really good even my picky husband thought it was great.

      Thank you so much for catching that! Sometimes I’m in such a hurry to share the recipes that I LOVE, that I end up skipping parts. :) I went back and fixed the instructions. I don’t generally have tons of water leftover after steaming, since the cabbage is suspended above the water and not immersed, but that was smart to use paper towels, since you did have extra water. Asiago sounds so good on this, too! I’m so glad your family enjoyed it! Thanks for stopping by.

    This is a fantastic and super delicious dish!! I made it this evening and we had to fight for the last bite!! All the instructions are very clear. I didn’t steam the cabbage tho but blanched them in salt boiling water for 1.5 minutes, pat dried with the paper towels. The cabbage was still a bit crunchy when we put the casserole into the oven Since I like sour cream, I put in a tiny bit of extra sour cream as well. yummy!!! This dish goes super well with a glass of white (that’s what we did). Thank you for sharing….yum yum πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜‹
