Who knew roasted cabbage was so delish? I grew up eating cabbage shredded and stir-fried and while that’s still a favorite, this recipe for Loaded Cabbage Steaks has quickly become a favorite in my keto household.

Instead of shredding up tons of heads of cabbage to feed a family, slice them up into big chunks, top them with delicious bacon and whatever else you like and pop them in oven while you spend more time with your family? I am sold.

Try these cabbage steaks with my Pork Chop recipe or pile it high with keto pulled pork for even more deliciousness.

Actual cook time will vary depending on how thick and evenly the cabbage is sliced and the amount of moisture in the cabbage slices. For best results, check after 30 minutes and adjust the final cook time accordingly.

If you’re just starting the keto diet, a food journal specifically for keto like this one can help you to stay on track. Track your meals, macros, mood, fasting times and movement daily to spot helpful and harmful patterns that help you achieve your weight loss and health goals.

Loaded Cabbage Steaks

To make your steaks you’ll need:

  • 1 large head green cabbage, cut into 6 evenly thick slices
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled
  • 2 oz. blue cheese, crumbled

Grab these ingredients for your keto blue cheese dressing:

  • ½ small shallot, very finely minced
  • 2 oz. blue cheese crumbles

  • Cabbage Steak Ingredients:
  • 1 large head green cabbage, cut into 6 evenly thick slices
  • 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled

Instructions

1. Place the top oven rack in the center position and pre-heat to 400°F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking mat. Set aside.

2. Cut the stem off the cabbage head to create a flat surface on the bottom. Carefully slice the cabbage, top to bottom, into ½-inch sections.

3. Transfer the sliced cabbage to the prepared baking sheet without overcrowding. Lightly brush the cabbage with olive oil and sprinkle it with garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.

4.  Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for 40-45 minutes, rotating the sheet once halfway through, or until the cabbage is nicely browned and crispy on the edges.

5. Once the cabbage is in the oven, prepare the dressing by combining the sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce (if using), shallot, blue cheese, and heavy cream in a medium bowl. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste, and whisk vigorously until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

6. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and cool for several minutes. Drizzle each cabbage steak with some of the blue cheese dressing and top with the crumbled bacon and blue cheese. Garnish with the fresh parsley and serve immediately. Enjoy!
