Grilled Cabbage Steaks


Cutting cabbage into "steaks" and grilling it brings out sweet and smoky flavors you won't get from any other method, and the crispy, caramelized edges are the best part!

6 servings


  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 medium head cabbage


  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Whisk oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.

  2. Remove any loose outer leaves from the cabbage. Trim the stem so the cabbage sits flat on a cutting board. Cut vertically into six 3/4-inch-thick "steaks". Place the steaks on a baking sheet.

  3. Brush one side of the steaks with some of the oil mixture.

  4. Place the steaks on the grill, oiled-side down; close the lid and grill for 5 minutes. Brush more oil mixture on top and gently flip over; close lid and grill until tender-crisp and slightly charred, 5 to 7 minutes more. Remove to a platter and drizzle with any remaining oil mixture.

Cook's Notes:

If you like more char, raise the heat to medium-high for part of the grilling time. For softer cabbage, grill for an extra 2 to 3 minutes.

If any cabbage remains, reserve for another use.
