Garlic Roasted Cabbage Steaks

Boom.  It’s not often that your veggie side is the hardiest part of your meal.  We ate these along side a nice light soup…the crunch was fantastic, the garlic was so satisfying (since I always grew up eating garlic bread with soup…but I try not to eat bread much if ever…so this filled the little hole so I wasn’t disappointed!), and it really was something you can sink your teeth into!  Not to mention the fact that cabbage is awesome for you!  I don’t even really like raw green cabbage, but shoot…slathered in garlic butter and roasted till crispy and brown…I LOVED IT!  And so did Mr. Rodgers!!   I ever tossed the leftovers back in a hot oven a few days later and they were still good to accompany another meal!  Perfect 🙂  You should try!!!


Here’s what you need:

  • 1 Head Raw Green Cabbage
  • About 6 Tbsp Butter (You could use Olive Oil too, I’m just weirded out about heating olive oil because of some studies I have heard!  I don’t mind a little fat in the butter, but it’s up to you!!)
  • 2-3 tsp Garlic Powder, depending on your love level
  • Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Tbsp Powdered Parmesan (Optional)


And here’s how you do it:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove outer leaf.  Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the cabbage head into inch thick slices, starting at the top of the head and cutting down to the “stem.”
  3. Lay “steaks” out in a single layer on a foil lined baking sheet.
  4. Melt butter in the microwave and whisk in the garlic powder.  Baste the top side of your steaks generously with half the mixture.  Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper.
  5. Slide into your preheated oven and cook for 30 minutes.
  6. Carefully flip cabbage steaks, baste fresh side with garlic butter, sprinkle on salt, pepper, and Parmesan, and return to the oven for 30 more minutes, or until crispy, brown, and to your desired tenderness.  Remove from oven and enjoy!!

  1. This looks fabulous! Simple food truly is the best. I keep cabbage on hand at all times. I use it in soups and salads, raw and cooked.

  2. You’re afraid to heat olive oil, yet you cook on aluminum? Try parchment paper, it’s safer. The recipe looks delicious and I will definitely try it!!

  3. This is delicious! Thank you. Only difference I grated the garlic (but I am obsessed with the gem) 🙂 And my husband and I both had to eat it so kisses afterwards were even.

  4. This was so good. I ended up eating the whole cabbage. The butter was awesoms on it. This will be the only way I will cook cabbage, because I dont like it boiled.

  5. This is amazing! I just started using cabbage more and was looking for new recipes. The only things I did different was add some slap ya momma on them since I love spicy and roasted up some onions with them during the last 30 minuted.Will definitely be making this again

  6. I know this is an older post, but I wanted to stop to say thanks for sharing this one! I was looking for more ways to use cabbage since I really enjoy it, but only know a few ways to prepare it! I’ll be making this one as a side dish and can’t wait to try it out!

  7. Just finished eating this for my supper and am amazed at how very delicious it is. I’ll definitely be eating much more cabbage from now on. Thank you for this “keeper” of a recipe!!!!
