Balsamic Cabbage “Steaks"

A touch of maple syrup in the marinade helps bring out the cabbage’s natural sweetness and promotes caramelization. After you try this recipe, you might be surprised to find yourself actually craving cabbage.

This recipe is adapted from The Colorful Family Table by Ilene Godofsky Moreno.


What You'll Need


CABBAGE “STEAKS”

1 large head red cabbage

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp maple syrup

Salt and black pepper, to taste

¼ cup chopped fresh parsley, for garnish

SWEET MUSTARD SAUCE

2 Tbsp Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp maple syrup


How to Make It


Cooking Tips

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Remove the tough outer layers of the cabbage. With the cabbage sitting upright on a cutting board, slice 3/4-inch-thick “steaks” (you should end up with 6).

Place the “steaks” on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, stir together the balsamic vinegar, and maple syrup.

Brush the mixture over the “steaks.”

Bake for 25 minutes, then flip the “steaks” and bake for another 15–20 minutes, until slightly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

While the “steaks” are baking, make the Sweet Mustard Sauce by stirring the mustard and maple syrup together in a small bowl.

Serve the “steaks” warm, with a little Sweet Mustard Sauce spooned over each and chopped parsley.
