Roasted Cabbage Steaks


Here in Florida, the fields are laden with mature cabbages. It is so pretty to drive by miles and miles of cabbage, along with kale, mustard greens, beets etc. I’m always trying to find unique ways of preparing cabbage.

Growing up my mom would cut a whole cabbage in 4 thick wedges and steam with chopped onions, garlic, and herbs in a large pot with a little oil and water. It would cook until the water disappeared and the onions were caramelized.

When I first made it for my hubby this way, he was blown away by the delicious sweet taste and he fell deeper in love with cabbage.  He also loves when I make Curry Cabbage, Vegan Cabbage Soup, and my Cabbage Ball recipes


Roasted Cabbage Steaks

I made this Roasted Cabbage Steaks once before and I didn’t like the results, I roasted the cabbage steaks and they weren’t tender to my liking. This time I wanted them to be tender and juicy and melt in your mouth delicious.

So, I seared the cabbage steaks to keep the texture on the outside crisp and golden brown and the moisture on the inside. I  then slow roast then covered in the oven for 35minutes. Then I roasted them uncovered for another 5 minutes. These were so tender and delicious.

So, if you miss preparing corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick’s day, now that you are eating plant-based meals, then this recipe is just for you! If you looking for a creative side dish then this recipe is ideal. It is easy to prepare and tastes amazing with my simple herb blend of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.

  1. Another genius idea! The St. Patty folks may want some thing pink to go with this and I bet kidney beans would go great with this instead of the corn beef… that’s what I would/will do SOON. Thank you!

  4. Linda from Veganosity

    This looks amazing, and reminds me of how my mom used to make cabbage. She did the same thing, steamed it with onions, garlic, and a bit of celery salt. Delicious! I can’t wait to try these steaks.

  5. Sounds delicious! The other cabbage recipe you mentioned about just steaming it with onions and garlic…what herbs did you actually use? I really want to try that recipe. I love my vegetables and like to try different variations.

      Traditionally she would add thyme, scallion, a pinch of allspice and Scotch bonnet pepper but I add Italian seasonings to mine.

    What a very yummy cabbage transformation. My niece loves fried vegetables with breading but this baked cabbage was uniquely wonderful.

    • Michelle Blackwood
