I don’t remember where I originally saw roasted cabbage steaks, maybe on Pinterest, maybe in Everyday Food Magazine, either way I know it was Martha Stewart who first implanted this idea in my head and it is genius. So, thank you Martha!
If you love cabbage, you are going to freak out about how good this is. Endlessly versatile and truly a side dish that goes with everything, my Roasted Cabbage Steaks are always a winner. In the Fall, I like to pair with Foolproof Roast Chicken recipe and green salad for an easy dinner.
Now, if you are on the fence about cabbage, you need to try this because this might be the recipe that converts you to a cabbage lover. Just ask anyone who has tasted the caramelized cabbage leaves and crispy edges!
This is a simple side dish worthy of a dinner party and couldn’t be easier to make.
Four ingredients, a couple of minutes to prepare and toss in the oven for an hour.

What are Cabbage Steaks?
Cabbage steaks are the result of taking a large head of cabbage and cutting from root to top into thick slices otherwise known as “steaks”. You can then season and bake or grill the steaks for a delicious way to prepare cabbage!
Do you have to use green cabbage for Cabbage Steaks?
Nope!! You can use red cabbage or any other round head of cabbage you can find.
How do you reheat Cabbage Steaks?
The best way to reheat cabbage steaks is to place in a hot cast iron or stainless frying pan for a few minutes per side (medium-low heat) to reheat through. You can microwave them but just know that any crispy edges will get soggy.

- 1 2 pound head of organic green cabbage cut into 1" thick slices
- 1.5 T extra virgin olive oil
- 3 large garlic cloves smashed
- kosher salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- spray olive oil
Preheat oven to 400F and rub baking sheet with olive oil (or spray with non-stick cooking spray). Pull outer leaf off cabbage (it's usually dirty and nasty looking), cut cabbage from top to bottom (bottom being root) into 1" thick slices.
Rub both sides of cabbage with smashed garlic.
Use a pastry brush to evenly spread the olive oil over both sides of the cabbage slices.
Finally, sprinkle each side with a bit of kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
Roast on the middle rack for 30 minutes. Carefully flip the cabbage steaks and roast for an additional 30 minutes until edges are brown and crispy. Serve hot and Enjoy!
