How to Make the Best Oven Roasted Cabbage Steaks Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Cabbage Steaks: One medium-large head green cabbage, olive oil, salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic cloves and chopped Italian parsley.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: A large sheet pan, sharp knife and cutting board, small bowl, pastry brush, measuring cups and spoons.
  • You can adapt this recipe using any size head of cabbage. Keep in mind, larger cabbage steaks may take a few minutes longer to bake. Likewise, smaller slices may take less time. Adjust accordingly.
  • Take a moment to trim the core of the cabbage so, it’s level for cutting. Use a large, sharp knife to slice.
  • To lighten this dish up further, use cooking spray or an oil spritzer in place of olive oil.
  • The amount of oil can be adapted to your personal taste.
  • There’s a generous amount of garlic in this dish as we’re huge garlic fans. You can use more, or less according to your personal taste and that of your family.
  • At the end of roasting the cabbage steaks you can turn the oven to broil to char the leaves further. The charred pieces have a slight sweetness that enhances the overall flavor.
  • I recommend cutting the slices about 1 inch thick. Keep in mind that the cabbage will shrink while roasting.
  • Store Roasted Cabbage Steaks chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in a non stick skillet on the stovetop over medium heat or chop and toss with smoked sausage and diced cooked potatoes for a delicious round two meal.

  • 1 medium head green cabbage
  • 1/4-1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh Italian parsley
  • 4-6 cloves garlic minced
  • 2-4 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Liberally spray a large baking sheet with cooking spray or brush with oil.
  • Trim stem of cabbage to level. Cut cabbage into 1 inch slices from top to bottom, around the core, leaving internal core intact. (You can cut out the core but, it helps the leaves stay together while slicing.)
  • In a small bowl mix together oil, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, parsley and garlic. Mix well.
  • Brush liberally on all sides of cabbage steaks. Sprinkle tops with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, rotate pan. Continue to roast another 15-20 minutes until golden, lightly charred and fork tender. You can broil for a few minutes to char further, if desired.
  • Serve immediately.


The amount of oil can be adapted to your personal preference.
To lighten these cabbage steaks further, use cooking spray or an oil spritzer in place of oil.

  1. Hi Melissa: I assume using red cabbage would work just as well? We received a box in our CSA box recently.

      2. Hi Eric, I’m so sorry to hear of your health issues. I have quite a few soup recipes, please browse soups here when you have a moment to see if there are any you’d like to try. Sending prayers.

  2. We love roasted cabbage. We don’t eat meat. What would you suggest to serve the cabbage with? I am drawing a blank. Thank you in advance!

    Loved the seasoning- did not sure the Parmesan and had to use dried parsley. Next time will use a little less salt tho.
