Roasted Cabbage Steaks

Delicious Roasted Cabbage Steaks, thick slices of cabbage rubbed with parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and roasted until tender and juicy. Perfect main dish or side for St. Patricks day!

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

How To Cut Cabbage Steaks?

Remove the outer leaves, remove the stem and wash cabbage. With the stem side down on cutting board, cut 1/2 inch slice of cabbage.

 How To Make 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.

What To Serve Cabbage Steaks With?

Serve cabbage steaks with:


Place cabbage steaks in a large skillet or heated cast iron pan and heat on both sides for 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat.

    Although it says “Serve immediately”: Is there a way to prepare this and reheat to bring to a dinner party?

    I know this is an old post, but,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    I was looking for a roasted cabbage recipe ( basically instructions), and found this. I’ve seen several recipes for cabbage steaks. For the life of me, I can’t figure out how you all were able to cut such nice neat slices. I just tried, and could not cut off nice slices. Mine came all to pieces. Admittedly, my cabbage was rather tough wih lots of thick corelike “streaks” thru it. But I’m not even sure if I had a cabbage without those “thick veins”, I’d be able to cut nice neat slices. I finally gave up on mine, and cut small wedges (I’ve seen roasted cabbage cut in wedges also), and I pilled all the loose pieces up together on the pan, and seeing how that goes. It’s in the oven now. We’ll see.

      Try using an electric knife for even slices!

      Leave core in but cut it enough so cabbage rests on cutting board and doesn’t roll. The core holds the steaks together. Next, cut off two sides, opposite each other, to get rid of rounded edges. Now you’re ready to slice steaks. Any pieces that fall off plus the two edges are for later uses. Hope this helps. I learned on YouTube.

    I made this. I used avocado oil instead of olive and the only seasoning i used was salt, pepper and minced garlic. Sooo good. Thank you.

    What would you serve with the Cabbage Steaks?

      I would serve it with my caramelized mashed potatoes and gravy. Both recipes are here on my website. Enjoy.

    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!

      Dunori, that’s a great idea, so cool. Don’t forget to add some potatoes as well.

      This recipe was nothing short of amazing! My husband, 4 year old, and I devoured it! We used red cabbage, and some of my slices fell apart but it didn’t matter because the smaller pieces got crispy and even more delicious. I might try it with garlic powder and thyme only next time. Thank you so much!

    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.

    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.
