Turkey Tracks: Cabbage “Steaks”

Turkey Tracks:  January 30, 2017

Cabbage “Steaks”

I saw a recipe for cabbage “steaks” on Facebook not along ago.

I am one of those people who LOVE all roasted vegetables, so I thought I’d try this one.  I’ve roasted cabbage sliced thin into shreds before and like it a lot, especially if there is garlic in the mixture.  In this recipe, one slices cabbage into rounds, drizzles olive oil over the “steak,” adds salt and pepper and whatever else one wants, and roasts in a 350º oven for something like 40 to 45 minutes.  The edges of the “steak” will get brown, as will the bottom.  (I cover the pan with parchment paper as I long ago stopped using toxic aluminum foil around food.)  Thicker steaks might take longer.  One that is about 1/2 inches or a bit bigger is about right.  The thicker the “steak,” the longer it takes to get that caramelized sweetness roasting can bring.

Here’s what the “steak” looks like on a plate alongside fresh peppers and carrots and some roasted haddock:

  1. Gary and I also had them recently. Must have seen the same post on FB that you did. We enjoyed them. Will have them again.


    PS. It’s not much compared to your quilting expertise, but I recently got out the sewing machine and made five pussyhats for the Women’s March. It had been so many years that it took both Gary and me hours to figure out how to thread the machine and decipher the digital settings.

    I proudly wore my hat and gave the others away. A friend who couldn’t march made 20 and I gave them away on the crowded 8:45 am ferry on the way to the Seattle march. The March was a wonderful experience. Good sunny weather. People were in high spirits. We loved the signs. “Girls just want to have FUNdamental rights.” With a picture of Trump: “You’re so vain. You probably think this march is about you.” Mature women had these signs: “I can’t believe I’m still protesting this shit.”

    My daughter, her husband and their son, 13, and daughter,11, all marched too. 30,000-60,000 were expected. About 200,000 showed up. It was a cheerful, friendly, mutually supportive crowd. Gary and I marched for six or seven hours. So glad we did.

    Gary and I were at the immigration protest in downtown Seattle last night too.

    Several of us have joined together to do the 10 steps in 100 days, Indivisible, and other resistance efforts.

    So sorry we have to do this. Our energies could be spent in so many positive ways if we didn’t have to spend time resisting this crazy meanness.

    Well, I started this talking about cabbage…..
