Why This Recipe is a Keeper:
If you’re a regular reader, you know I LOVE to take ordinary vegetables–especially homely and under-appreciated ones–to another level! Cabbage is one of those vegetables and roast vegetables like this cabbage steak recipe are truly the best!
First, it’s inexpensive and even one small head will go a long way. Cooked cabbage, along with adding a potato or two, helped sustain my grandparents and parents when times were tough.
It’s versatile! Is there anything cabbage can’t do for home cooks? The large leaves can be filled with meat and rice to make a substantial dinner. It’s perfect in soups and no summer is complete without a good, tangy coleslaw.
It’s healthful! Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, meaning it has tons of antioxidants and it’s low in carbs which it perfect in any diet. Get more information about the health benefits of cabbage here.

How to Make Roasted Cabbage Steaks with Mustard Vinaigrette:
- For this cabbage steak recipe, you could cut the head of cabbage into wedges. However, calling something a “steak” just makes it sound more hearty and substantial.
- Flipping the baked cabbage steaks to achieve even caramelization on both sides is a bit tricky. Use a large spatula and flip them quickly. If they fall apart, simply push the leaves of the “steaks” back together.
- The tangy, mustardy vinaigrette comes together quickly as the cabbage steaks roast. Simply combine all the ingredients in a small bowl.
Drizzle the vinaigrette over the roasted cabbage “steaks” and serve! So easy and guaranteed to turn a cabbage skeptic into a cabbage lover!
If you have cabbage steaks left over, store in the refrigerator without the mustard vinaigrette on the steaks. Store the vinaigrette separately in the refrigerator. Reheat in a 350-degree oven until heated through.
