Grilled Cabbage Steaks with Balsamic Glaze

This recipe is a delicious and easy way to cook cabbage. Cabbage steaks are grilled and then topped with a balsamic glaze. They can be served as a side dish or main course. You can also add other vegetables to the grill, such as carrots or potatoes.


  • 1 head of cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Cut cabbage into 1-inch thick slices. Brush both sides of cabbage slices with olive oil.
  3. Place cabbage slices on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes per side, or until slightly charred.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, honey, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.
  5. Brush the glaze over the grilled cabbage steaks. Serve immediately.

Potential changes & improvements

You could also roast the cabbage steaks in the oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place cabbage slices on a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes, or until slightly charred. Then brush with the balsamic glaze and serve.

If you want a more intense flavor, you can marinate the cabbage in the balsamic glaze for 30 minutes before grilling.

What other food it works well with

Grilled cabbage steaks go well with other grilled meats or vegetables. Try serving them with grilled chicken, steak, or salmon. You could also serve them with roasted potatoes or carrots.

Common Mistakes

One common mistake is not slicing the cabbage thinly enough. If the cabbage slices are too thick, they will take longer to cook and may not get as charred. Another mistake is not preheating the grill. If the grill is not hot enough, the cabbage will take longer to cook.
