Servings : 6
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 head cabbage, cut into ¾-inch to 1-inch thick rounds
  • ¼ cup olive oil, for brushing
  • salt, to taste
  • fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked to a desired crispness and crumbled
  • ½ cup ranch dressing, for serving
  • chopped green onions, for garnish
  • chopped fresh parsley, for garnish


  • Preheat grill to Medium-High heat; grease the grill grates.
    You can also use a grill pan and cook the cabbage steaks on the stove.
  • Brush cut cabbage steaks with olive oil on all sides and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place cabbage on the grill and cook for 5 minutes; flip and continue to cook for 5 to7 more minutes, or until tender. Remove from grill.
  • Drizzle cabbage steaks with ranch dressing; top with crumbled bacon and garnish with green onions and parsley. Serve.


  • Prep the Grill Properly: To prevent the cabbage slices from sticking or falling apart while turning or removing, make sure to oil your grill grates. Slicing the cabbage a bit thicker can also help with this, although you might need to grill them slightly longer to soften the centers.
  • Season Well: Don't forget that while salt and pepper mainly add flavor, salt specifically helps to balance any bitterness that might be present in the cabbage.
  • Prepare in Advance: If you anticipate being pressed for time, feel free to get a head start on this dish. You can cut the cabbage and cook the bacon beforehand, storing each in separate, sealed containers in the fridge. Then, when you're ready, just heat up the grill and cook.
