Have you ever considered cabbage the star of your dinner table? In a world of broccoli, corn, and peas, probably not. Allow me to introduce you to roasted cabbage steaks. Thick slices of cabbage are transformed into golden-brown, tender “steaks” that boast crunch and a little bit of heat.

Easy Oven-Roasted Cabbage Steaks

As someone who enjoys experimenting in the kitchen, I’ve found that cabbage is a highly underrated vegetable. Its ability to absorb all the seasonings while maintaining its tender texture makes it a perfect candidate for roasting.

Plus, it’s a great way to get everyone to eat their veggies!

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium-sized head of fresh cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Seasonings I use: Garlic powder, Paprika, Salt, Black Pepper, and Red pepper flakes.

How to make Cabbage Steaks in the Oven

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set it aside.
  2. Slice the Cabbage: Cut the cabbage into rounds approximately 1 inch thick. Remove the stem and the round end, aiming for about four rounds from the head of cabbage. Carefully place each round onto the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Season the Cabbage: Using a pastry brush, coat one side of each cabbage round with olive oil. Generously sprinkle garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper over the oiled side. Flip the cabbage steaks over and repeat the process on the other side. Finally, sprinkle red pepper flakes on top for a bit of heat.

  1. Roast: Bake the cabbage in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes or until the center is tender and the edges are slightly crispy.
  2. Remove the cabbage steaks from the oven and serve them hot. Each steak makes a decent-sized serving, but you can cut them in half if you’re serving more people, and it should be more than enough.

SKIP THE HEAT: If you’re looking to enjoy roasted cabbage steaks without the added heat, consider using a mix of milder seasonings.

Try swapping the red pepper flakes for a blend of garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme, and a dash of smoked paprika. You can also sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top.
