Cutting cauliflower into "steaks" and grilling them not only gives a flavorful, caramelized, and smoky taste, the presentation is lovely! A delicious change from boring old steamed cauliflower! I like my cauliflower a little on the firm side, so add a few extra minutes if you like it softer.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Whisk oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, smoked paprika, brown sugar, chili powder, and black pepper together in a bowl. Set aside.

  • Remove the tough bottom leaves from each cauliflower, taking care not to remove the stem. Place the cauliflower heads onto a cutting board with the stem side facing upwards; cut vertically on both sides of the stem to remove the loose florets. Reserve florets for another use.

  • Cut each cauliflower vertically through the stem into 2 even "steaks", 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick. Remove any remaining small leaves from each steak. Place the 4 steaks on a baking sheet.

  • Brush one side of the steaks with some of the oil mixture. Place steaks on the grill, oiled side down; grill for 5 minutes. Brush more oil mixture on top of the steaks and gently flip over; grill until golden brown and slightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes more. Drizzle with any remaining oil and remove to a plate. Sprinkle with cilantro.

Cook's Note:

You can grill the extra cauliflower florets in a grill basket alongside the steaks, or refrigerate for another use.

Really flavorful! I had a hard time cutting the cauliflower into "steak" shapes and it just crumbled under the knife, so I just stir fried it and added spring onion and cayenne pepper. Read More

This was surprisingly delicious. I did cook mine a little longer and I added hot pepper flakes to the brushing sauce. It was so easy to make and I just threw it on the grill with Kevin's Orange Chicken. Mmmm yum! Read More

I love cauliflower and this was something different to try. It was really good. It took longer to cook on my gas grill, but I’ll try a higher heat next time. Only change was to add some red pepper flakes to the mix. Read More
