Low Carb Deconstructed Cabbage Rolls

I fondly remember the scrumptious cabbage rolls my Mom used to make for us in my youth. Over the years I've made my own cabbage rolls which were delicious but the recipe doesn't fit into my low carb lifestyle. So I decided to simplify the recipe by taking the work out of stuffed cabbage rolls and keeping it low carb.


  • 1 lb of pork sausage (I used Jimmy Dean Original)
  • 1 large head of cabbage, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 small green bell pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced
  • 1 dozen medium baby bella mushrooms, sliced
  • 24 oz marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1 tsp seasoned salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 4 Tbsp roasted garlic extra virgin olive oil


  • Cook the pork sausage, drain and set aside
  • In a large wok, cook the celery, onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms using the pork sausage grease
    • Season the vegetables with the garlic, salt, and black pepper
    • Set the al dente veggies aside
  • Heat the wok on high, add the butter, olive oil, and chopped cabbage
    • cook the cabbage until it's al dente
  • Add the vegetables, pork sausage, and marinara sauce to the cabbage
    • Lower the heat to medium high and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes until the cabbage is at the tender level that you like
  • Serve immediately
