Spicy Cabbage and Onion Steaks, a simple, fast and delicious humble vegetables that will wow any dinner guest. Roasted in the oven thick cabbage and onion slices to perfection.
My family is a huge fan of cabbage, and I was thrilled for another recipe that uses cabbage. We like our cabbage sauteed with bacon and onions, so this is a spin off of my traditional recipe.
Take a whole cabbage head and slice off the stem. Start cutting thick slices being sure to keep them as much the same size as possible. It will make a difference with roasting them. I cut a couple of large sweet onions the same way. Depending on the size of the onions, sometimes I just cut them in half.
Arrange the slices on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil or parchment paper. I had saved the pan I used to bake my bacon in that morning, so I used it. I took each cabbage and onion steak and dipped them in the melted bacon grease and then turned them once. As you can see, I also threw in a few jalapenos to roast also.
These cabbage and onion steaks are so yummy and easy and fun to make. I hope you get to make some real soon.
