Baked Cabbage Steaks – A Simple and Healthy Side Dish

Baked cabbage steaks are a wonderfully easy and nutritious side dish that’s perfect for any meal. Whether you’re looking for a low-carb alternative, a healthy addition to your dinner table, or a creative way to enjoy cabbage, these “steaks” will become a household favorite. They’re roasted to perfection, bringing out the natural sweetness of the cabbage while adding a delightful crispiness to the edges. Let’s get started with this delicious and simple recipe!


  • 1 head of green cabbage
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, paprika, or your favorite herbs and spices


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). While the oven is preheating, line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Cabbage:
    • Remove any outer leaves from the cabbage. Slice the cabbage into thick “steaks” by cutting it vertically, making each steak about 1-inch thick. Be sure to keep the core intact to hold the leaves together.
  3. Brush with Olive Oil:
    • Place the cabbage steaks on the prepared baking sheet. Brush both sides of each steak with olive oil. This helps the cabbage become tender and develop a crispy edge when roasted.
  4. Season to Taste:
    • Season the cabbage steaks with salt, black pepper, and any additional seasonings or herbs of your choice. Garlic powder and paprika work exceptionally well for added flavor.
  5. Roast in the Oven:
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast the cabbage for about 20-25 minutes or until the edges are golden brown and crispy, and the cabbage is tender. You may want to flip the steaks halfway through for even cooking.
  6. Serve Hot:
    • Once the cabbage steaks are beautifully roasted, remove them from the oven. Serve them hot as a delightful and healthy side dish.

Cook’s Notes:

  • Seasoning Options: Get creative with your seasonings. You can use everything from lemon zest to parmesan cheese, balsamic glaze, or even a drizzle of honey for a sweet and savory twist.
  • Uniform Slices: To ensure even cooking, try to cut the cabbage steaks as uniformly as possible.
  • Crispiness: If you prefer an even crispier texture, you can broil the cabbage steaks for a few extra minutes, but keep a close eye to prevent burning.

Baked cabbage steaks are not only delicious but also a healthy alternative to traditional side dishes. They pair well with a variety of main courses and are an excellent choice for those seeking a low-carb option. Enjoy these cabbage steaks as a nutritious addition to your meals! 🥬🍴😋
