You guys know that I am a little obsessed with Reubens.
Today I am following up with a Keto Reuben Slaw.
It is the perfect solution for those times you need a quick no-cook meal. This recipe is perfect for meal prepping!
Ingredients for Making This Keto Reuben Slaw Recipe
- Cabbage: Use green cabbage for this recipe. You will need approximately one-half of a head of cabbage.
- Corned Beef: You can typically find corned beef in the deli year-round. If you cannot find it, you can use roast beef or even turkey.
- Cheese: I used pre-sliced cheese cut into strips. If you prefer, you can use grated cheese.
- Sauerkraut: I use Bubbie s.
- Mayonnaise: Use homemade or any brand that does not contain sugar.
- Ketchup: My go-to brand for buying ketchup is Primal Kitchen. If you have the time, make my Keto Ketchup.
- Dill Pickles: Make sure you read the label as some pickles contain carbs. I use Bubbie’s, which you can find in the refrigerator section.
- Caraway Seeds: See below for instructions on how to toast them.
Tips & Tricks
- If you are low carb, or are keto and don’t mind adding some carrots to your diet, coleslaw mix makes this recipe a snap.
- If you want to make this a side dish rather than a main, you could always leave the meat off.
- If you prefer, you can substitute apple cider vinegar for the pickle juice.

First, start by combining the cabbage, corned beef, Swiss cheese, and sauerkraut in a large bowl.
