Balsamic Roasted Cabbage Steaks roasted to a crispy perfection on the outside, but a creamy goodness on the inside.

OhMahGosh friends! These cabbage steaks are so, so, soooo good!  It’s just layers and layers of crunchy and creamy satisfaction with the bonus drizzle of garlic and balsamic vinegar. I’m going to call this the perfect side dish.

Roasted Cabbage Steaks brushed with balsamic glaze

Do you remember the cabbage diet craze? I DO. I did it! That’s when I learned about roasting cabbage “steaks”. The exchange went something like this:

  • Hey, Kat, want steak?
  • YAHSSSS!
  • Here’s some cabbage! Pretend it’s beef.
  • Uhmmm, thanks…?

Little did I know that I would actually and totally enjoy the balsamic roasted cabbage steaks to no end. I don’t need to be on no cabbage-diet to love them, know whaddamean?

Balsamic garlic dressing

This is really a simple dish and goes great as a low carb, low cal, healthy side dish with just about any meal. Even with a REAL steak. *Tried it, LOVED it*.

It’s especially fitting if you are on a keto or paleo diet. Just try to find a balsamico that is without any added sugars so to keep the carbs at zero.

HOW TO MAKE BALSAMIC ROASTED CABBAGE STEAKS

  • Prepare a balsamic glaze by combining balsamic vinegar with garlic, honey, and mustard.
  • Slice a small head of red cabbage into thick 1-inch “steaks”.
  • Brush steaks with prepared balsamic glaze and bake at 400F for about 20 to 25 minutes.

HOW TO CUT “CABBAGE STEAKS”

  1. Pull outer leaf off cabbage and discard.
  2. Cut the bottom (the root) off of the cabbage and set it sitting up so that the flat end is on the cutting board.
  3. Cut cabbage from top to bottom (bottom being the root) into 1-inch thick slices.

  1. This was honestly, DELICIOUS! Loved it. The marinade added a new dimension to a widely-regarded-as-boring ingredients. THANK YOU!

  2. Absolutely one of the most delicious WW recipes I have had lately. So quick and easy to fix with basic ingredients most kitchens always have available.

  3. This looks delish! Does it ‘keep’? Or should I cook one at a time if I were the only one eating them. Thanks, if ya got the time!

    Ooo! I’ve been so into cabbage lately! I’m going to be craving this until I get it! It looks amazing!

    1. Wow! This changed my entire outlook on cabbage. This tasted superb, but it also opened up so many possibilities!
      One thing I noticed is that no one has included using heavy thread tied snugly around the slices to hold them together.
