Crispy Roasted Cabbage Steaks make a great side dish for any meal (not just your favorite Corned Beef) in just 20 minutes.
When it comes to veggie Side Dishes, cabbage is often overlooked in favor of other favorites like Candied Sweet Potatoes, Milk Boiled Corn, and Roasted Garlic Tomatoes. This cabbage dish is good enough to stand with those classic favorites.
Move over boiled cabbage! Crispy Roasted Cabbage Steaks may actually rival Crispy Slow Cooker Corned Beef for your favorite part of the meal. Everything you love about roasted Brussels Sprouts are made even easier here with cabbage. No need to trim a whole bag of Brussels Sprouts when you just need to make a few cuts to a head of cabbage. Plus the presentation value of the cabbage steaks is great.
For plating you can either serve it as an intact steak, cut in half in a half circle (use a good spatula to lift intact) or using a fork to twirl it into a pasta-like pile of delicious-ness.
Cabbage gets such a bad rap as far as vegetables go. Not a lot of people see it on menus and say “oooh let’s order a side of cabbage with our short ribs” but if you were to try this side dish… you’ll be a convert. In fact, the first couple of times you make it you can even get away with taking one for the team and eating all those extra browned outside pieces… here’s a secret… They are the best part! They’re super crispy and delicious, and if you have a few extra minutes, let more of them crisp up.

Pretty much anywhere you would otherwise enjoy Brussels Sprouts, you can feel confident in making this substitute. You might be surprised that this cabbage is great added to pasta dishes. It works great in place of napa cabbage in Asian noodle dishes too. The flavors are great, the texture is still soft in the middle and, in steak form, the cabbage stays in long noodle form so it is perfect for pasta.
