Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cabbage steaks can be a little tricky when flipping, but they are so good even if they fall apart a little bit. The garlic and olive oil roast and permeate throughout the cabbage. It's so flavorful. Smashing the garlic really brings out the freshness and flavor. This is a great side dish for anyone but especially for someone living a low-carb or Keto lifestyle.

How To Make garlic rubbed roasted cabbage steaks

Test Kitchen Tips
We found smaller heads of cabbage worked best, as well as pulling off the outermost dark leaves before slicing the steaks. We also cut the slices a little thicker than 1". It was easier to flip them that way. Once you lay them on the pan the outer edges start to undo but they cook crisp and are super yummy.
  • Cabbage cut into slices.
    Slice cabbage from top to bottom of core in 1 inch thick slices.
  • Rubbing garlic into the cabbage.
    Place on a greased cookie sheet or baking pan sprayed with cooking spray (the olive oil spray is really good for this recipe). Rub the smashed garlic on both sides of the cabbage.
  • Basting each side with olive oil.
    Baste both sides of the cabbage with olive oil.
  • Sprinkling cabbage with salt and pepper.
    Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
