Ingredients

  • 13 lb 150 g green cabbage
  • 16 16 yellow onionyellow onions
  • 13 13 garlic clovegarlic cloves
  • 23 oz. 20 g butter
  • ¼ cup 60 ml heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp sour cream or crème fraîche
  • 1 oz. 30 g cream cheese
  • 16 tbsp 16 tbsp ranch seasoning
  • 110 tsp 110 tsp ground black pepper
  • 16 tsp 16 tsp salt
  • 1 oz. 30 g (60 ml) shredded cheese

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Shred onion, garlic and green cabbage using a sharp knife or a mandolin slicer. The quickest way is to use a food processor.
  2. Heat a large frying pan and add the butter. Sauté the vegetables until softened, about 8-10 minutes. Add cream, sour cream, cream cheese and spices. Stir thoroughly and let simmer for another 5–10 minutes.
  3. Add to a greased baking dish. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and has turned a golden color.

Tip!

These rich flavors pair beautifully with grilled - or fried - meat and fish. Whip up a double batch, and freeze the extra in small containers for a quick side dish any night of the week. Save even more time by using pre-shredded coleslaw – just avoid mixes with carrots if you can.

    Has anyone made this without onions to lower the carb count? I am doing that I write. We’ll see if the flavor is still good.

    Just use double cream instead of whipping cream and you can make your own cream cheese by adding lemon juice to cream, letting it curdle then leave to drain.

    Made this as part of my meal prepping for 5 lunches. Unfortunately I could not eat it and threw the entire thing out. The texture was awful and the taste was not good. If you're not a cabbage lover you prob won't like this.

    OMG - this is so good. Followed the recipe exactly and it came out great. Partner said "this is a keeper!"

    I must have done something wrong because I didn't like this dish at all. It's like coleslaw cooked, with too much mayo in it. I followed the directions, but there was way more cheese than cabbage. What happened?

    The words ranch seasoning hyperlink to a recipe on our website. It uses very common spices that you may already have on hand.

    Why are the carbs so high on this? Where are they coming from?

    Cabbage, onion, garlic, whipping cream, sour cream - they all have carbs and can add up quickly!

    💕this is a favorite! We have this all the time! My husband says "I never thought I would be asking for cabbage but this is awesome". I do add more cream cheese and sour cream and a little less heavy cream. Not sure what I did to the last one I made but I was told it was the best one I ever made! Thanks for the GREAT recipe!
