Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6
Difficulty: Easy
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Keto, Low-Carb


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small head cabbage, chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced (in moderation for keto)
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano

  1. Brown the Beef: In a large soup pot, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Break it into smaller pieces as it cooks. Drain any excess fat.
  2. Sauté Onions and Garlic: Add the chopped onion and minced garlic to the pot with the beef. Sauté until they become translucent and fragrant.
