Cabbage. I feel like this food can evoke a lot of reactions from people. Some detest it, but I love cabbage any way you can cook it. It’s probably because as a kid we had cabbage all of the time. This also results in my love for Brussels sprouts. So I’m all for cooking up this lovely veggie in lots of ways to try to convert the cabbage haters and give those of you like me another fun way to cook. That’s where this Balsamic, Honey Roasted Cabbage Steaks dish comes in…thanks Pinterest (again).
When there is a veggie that you just don’t love, chances are if you roast it in the oven, you’ll officially be a fan. Get a little caramelization going and it’ll be delicious. Cabbage is no different.
This dish couldn’t be easier to make. Just a few short steps and it’s done. I just used some green cabbage and sliced half of it into about 1/2-inch slices. This gave me about 4 cabbage steaks. Put them on a cookie sheet (I lined mine with a Silpat) and then brush olive oil over the bottom of the cookie sheet.
Carefully lay the cabbage slices in a flat layer on the cookie sheet. (I say carefully because they will be fairly fragile.) Then whisk together some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and honey. Brush the mixture over the top of the cabbage. Then season with some salt and pepper. If you have some fresh thyme, add the thyme at the end. I couldn’t get my hands on thyme this time of year, so I skipped that ingredient.
Then roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the cabbage is tender. Serve it up while the cabbage is still warm and enjoy! I loved the idea of eating cabbage in a big slice like this. It seems so elegant and the balsamic vinegar and honey over the top really sent the flavors through the roof.
I cannot wait for you to try this one out the next time you have a head of cabbage on hand. It’s super easy and is a lovely addition to nearly any meal. We served ours with barbecue chicken…yum, yum, yum!
