Low Carb Reuben Dip (Crock Pot, Microwave or Oven)

Have a little leftover corned beef from St Patty’s Day? This is a great easy crock pot dip! I enjoyed this dip so much – every year from now on I’ll get a bigger corned beef so I have some leftovers.

If you didn’t cook a corned beef this year, you can also make this with corned beef deli meat. This made about 6 cups of dip.  I estimated the carb count is 3.5 g. of net carbs per 1/2 cup of dip. I listed the carb counts of all the ingredients.  If needed, you could easily modify this recipe and make it even more low carb.

Ingredients:

2 cups of jarred sauerkraut, drained  (I used the Gundelsheim brand / 4 g. net carbs).

12 oz of softened Philadelphia cream cheese (this is 1 and 1/2 of the bricks / 12 g. net carbs)

1 1/4 cups of shredded Swiss cheese (I used the Sargento brand / 10 g. of carbs)

2 cups shredded cooked corned beef (I used leftovers from my cooked corned beef / 0 carbs) Trim off any extra fat.

1/2 cup of thousand island dressing (I used the refrigerated Marie’s brand / 16 g. carbs)

1/2 teaspoon of pepper

1/4 cups of water

Directions

Mix well all of the ingredients.   Microwave, oven bake or heat on low in your crock pot until heated through.  If using a slow cooker, turn to “warm” once heated.

Serving Suggestions:

I’ll be honest, last night I ate this with a spoon!  It was that good….  Traditionally this is served with toasted cocktail pumpernickel bread.  I would suggest serving it with celery, green pepper or low carb tortilla chips.  You could even use the filling in a low carb wrap to make an awesome low carb reuben.

 

Tips:
To shred a homemade corned beef, just give it a rough chop and then a few spins in the food processor. This is the food processor I used.  I like it because it is small and easy to use and clean.

 

Here is how I cooked my crock pot corned beef.  It was low carb and delicious! http://www.lowcarbcrock.com/2013/03/low-carb-crock-pot-corned-beef-and/

 

I used the jarred sauerkraut because its only ingredients were cabbage and salt.  If you use a different brand or type make sure it doesn’t contain added sugars.

 

You can make low carb chips by spraying cut up low carb tortillas with cooking spray or oil and baking them.

    I use Baken-Etes for dips. The bacon flavor would lend itself well to this dip.
