How do you make Cabbage Steaks?
First place the bacon on a large baking sheet. Cook until crispy flipping halfway through. Meanwhile slice the stem end off the cabbage and discard. Place the cabbage cut side down on a cutting board. Slice the cabbage into 3/4 inch steaks.
Once the bacon is cooked remove to paper towels to drain. Do not remove the bacon grease from the baking sheet but make sure that the grease is cool enough for you to place the cabbage steaks on without getting burnt. Place the cabbage steaks on the baking sheet and brush the tops with olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, garlic powder and onion powder.
Bake for about twenty minutes or until crispy on the edges and soft. Coarsely chop the bacon and add to the Cabbage Steaks the last couple minutes of cooking.
Can you use red cabbage to make Cabbage Steaks?
Yes you most certainly can and now that you mention it having a combination of both colored cabbage steaks would make for a beautiful presentation. You can substitute red cabbage in almost every recipe that you use green cabbage. Both red and green cabbage taste the same. The only exception is that if you are preparing a mixed recipe with cabbage in it like a salad the red cabbage will discolor the other ingredients in the recipe.
Is cabbage healthy?
Cabbage is a low calorie vegetable that is high in vitamins, antioxidants and minerals. One cup of raw cabbage has about 22 calories, 54% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin C and 85% of the recommended daily intake of vitamin K. It is also fiber rich and contains powerful antioxidants. So get on the stick and make yourself some of my many delicious cabbage recipes.
Can Cabbage Steaks be made ahead of time?
Yes they can although they are at their best straight out of the oven. There are times when hubby is running late getting home from work and the kids still need to be feed on time so they can get off to bed for school. I have popped these in the microwave to reheat for about thirty seconds at a reduced power and he devours them like there is no tomorrow.
