Ingredients for Cauliflower Steaks

Cabbage – I love green cabbage for this recipe, but red cabbage is great too. Choose a cabbage that is heavy for its size.

The oil Olive oil is what I use because it's always on hand. Swap it for bacon grease for a smoky flavor (and sprinkle it with crumbled bacon if you have it).

Spices – Spices are simple but feel free to sprinkle with onion powder or garlic powder.


Experiment with different seasonings or toppings to create your own cauliflower steak recipe.

  • Sprinkle steaks with parmesan cheese or feta cheese.
  • For a crispy touch, sprinkle some breadcrumbs on the cauliflower steaks after flipping them.
  • For added texture, sprinkle with chopped nuts like pecans or crumbled bacon.

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

Place the cauliflower on a cutting board and cut across the cauliflower into ½-inch steaks. Thicker steaks take longer to cook, while thinner steaks can burn.

How to Cook Cauliflower Steaks

Roasting vegetables creates layers of flavor as they are cooked at high temperatures, and using minimal fat brings out the natural sweetness on the outside.

  1. Prepare the cauliflower and brush with oil, season with salt and pepper (or other seasonings).
  2. Fry the cauliflower until the edges turn golden brown!

What to Serve with Cauliflower Steaks

Naturally, cauliflower steaks make an impressive side dish for corned beef, but they can also share oven space with a baked chicken breast or a great pot roast. Make dinner with a green salad with a tangy, red wine vinaigrette and easy homemade strawberry mousse!
