These Easy, Low Carb Reuben Cabbage Rolls have all the favorite ingredients that make Corned Beef and Cabbage so popular, but stuffed into a roll with a creamy Thousand Island dressing makes them even better!
Corned Beef and Cabbage is a winning meal in my house because it’s the one and only time I can willingly get my kids to eat some cabbage. Although they clearly aren’t too keen on cabbage, they will eat it when it accompanies corned beef.
The corned beef and cabbage actually get cooked separately in this recipe. The corned beef gets shredded and all the remaining ingredients are added to a bowl then stuffed into the all ready cooked cabbage leaves. A creamy homemade Thousand Island dressing inside and on top and it’s an excellent meal with plenty of left overs!
Feel free to remove the center stem of the cabbage leaves and make your rolls a little smaller. They do tend to be tough at the center, but if the cabbage is cooked long enough they should be soft enough to roll up with this luscious filling inside.
Since typical stuffed cabbage rolls usually have tomato or marinara sauce on the bottom and covered over them, I knew a creamy dressing was a must here.

I made my own homemade Thousand Island dressing for this recipe but of course you can use a store bought, just be sure to check the label for added sugar.
Hope you enjoy this little twist on corned beef and cabbage!
