Bacon-Ranch Grilled Cabbage Steaks

Cauliflower seems to steal the show these days and while I love a good cauliflower steak, they need some competition. Cabbage steaks hold together wonderfully on the grill and are simple to prepare.

4 cabbage steaks


  • 1 large head green cabbage

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 4 tablespoons ranch dressing

  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled


  1. Cut cabbage in half through the core. Discard any loose leaves. Cut two 3/4-inch steaks from each half of cabbage.

  2. Whisk olive oil, salt, and pepper together in a small bowl. Brush oil over one side of each steak and let sit for 5 minutes to absorb. Flip steaks over and brush with remaining oil.

  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  4. Place steaks directly on the grate and grill for 5 minutes. Using tongs, carefully flip the steaks over and grill for 5 minutes more.

  5. Transfer steaks to serving plates. Drizzle 1 tablespoon ranch dressing over each and top with crumbled bacon.

Cook's Note:

Save extra cabbage for later use.
