Savory Cabbage Steaks 

  • Cabbage steaks are perfect for vegetarians, meatless Mondays, or a quick snack.
  • Low in calories and high in fiber, cabbage pairs with your favorite savory herbs and seasonings.
  • Double the recipe and reheat in an air fryer for a week-long supply of delicious cabbage steaks.
  • A great alternative to fried cabbage, the oven does all the work. Just prep and bake!

Ingredients & Variations

Cabbage: I use green cabbage but this recipe works with red cabbage too. When selecting cabbage, choose full and heavy heads. You can even toss in other low-carb veggies like onions, fennel, or turnips to add extra flavor and variety.

Oil: Olive oil is what I use since I always have it on hand. Swap it for bacon grease for a smoky taste (and sprinkle with crumbled bacon if you have it).

Seasonings: Customize the seasonings depending on your main dish. Keep it simple, or take it up a notch by sprinkling homemade blends like ranch dressing, Italian seasoning, or lemon pepper.

Variations: Experiment with various seasonings or toppings to create your own cabbage steaks recipe. Sprinkle with parmesan or feta cheese or garnish with fresh herbs. For a crispy touch, sprinkle a few breadcrumbs over the cabbage steaks before baking.

How to Cut Cabbage Steaks

To cut cabbage into steaks, start with a fresh head of cabbage and remove the outer leaves.

Place the cabbage on a cutting board and slice into ½-inch steaks across the cabbage. Thicker steaks will need more cooking time, while thinner steaks can burn.

How to Cook Make Cabbage Steaks

Roasting vegetables creates layers of flavor because they’re cooked at a high temperature, and using minimal fats caramelizes the outside creating a natural sweetness.

  1. Prep cabbage and brush with oil, season with salt and pepper (or other seasoning blends).
  2. Roast cabbage until the edges are golden brown!

What to Serve with Cabbage Steaks

Naturally, cabbage steaks make an impressive side dish to corned beef, but they can share oven space with baked chicken breasts or a perfect pot roast. Round out dinner with a clean, green salad with a tangy, red wine vinaigrette and an easy homemade strawberry mousse!

  2. I made the Roasted Cabbage Steaks last night and absolutely loved it! The recipe is simple and clean up was a breeze. There’s no question I’ll be making them again . . . often.

    1. Your instructions do not say how to slice the cabbage. Do you slice across the core or top to bottom? Does it make a difference for the slabs staying together?

      1. I slice them across but I do think either way would work. If you slice top to bottom, you’ll likely want to cut out the core as you eat it.
