Keto Reuben Skillet

Following a keto plan has been pretty easy thus far; specially with super easy dishes like this one. 
With only 5 ingredients, it is fairly inexpensive AND it literally takes 15 minutes to make. THAT'S IT! I made it for about the 110th time for St. Patrick's Day - corned beef and all that...
Even if you aren't following keto this is a great meal for those busy weekdays or for on the weekend when you don't want to have to do a lot of prep! 
According to MyFitnessPal, a serving is (recipe as written is 4 servings): 439 calories, 8 carbs, 28 fat, 39 protein, 4 fiber, and 3 sugar. This, of course, will vary according to what brands you use, etc... But for 8 carbs (plus 4 fiber = 4 net carbs), it is one of my go to keto dinners!

Keto Reuben Skillet

1/4 cup butter
20 oz (about 600 gr) deli sliced corned beef, coarsely chopped
1 jar (20 oz) sauerkraut (rinsed and drained)
2 Tbsp prepared mustard
8 oz Swiss cheese

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add in the chopped corned beef and fry for a few minutes. Add in the sauerkraut and stir to combine. Cook until heated through - about 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Drizzle the top with the mustard and then lay the Swiss cheese on top. 

Reduce heat and cover the pan until cheese is melted - about 2 - 3 minutes.

Serve immediately. 

Serve with a few slices of pickle!

Easy to reheat for lunch the next day or freeze and reheat later. 
Super simple, am I right? Can all dinners be this easy and delicious, please?
I'm not even that huge of a sauerkraut fan but I enjoy this for dinner. Something different and filling and easy, what's not to love?


  1. This is brilliant! I know very little about keto or low carb diets in general. But this? I know that I'd simply devour it! That shot with all the cheese? Swoon! This looks like my kinda comfort food :)

  2. I love how simple and quick it is to throw together. And, yes, cheeeeese!!! lol
