Cauliflower “Steaks”

I’m admittedly late putting my hand to preparing cauliflower steaks. I’m not sure why. It seemed like a good idea the first time I heard of them way back when.

The ingredients for the basting marinade were:

  • olive oil
  • toasted sesame oil
  • soy sauce (I used Bragg Liquid Aminos)
  • Angostura Worcestershire sauce (without anchovies)
  • liquid smoke
  • kosher salt
  • smoked paprika
  • cumin powder
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • habanero hot sauce

We first encountered this black hot sauce at Cantina 1511 in Charlotte, NC. We were so impressed by the unique smoky flavor that we promptly ordered some via the internet.

The slices of basted cauliflower were first seared on both sides with bottom heat only, then I closed the lid of the Oven Central and baked them with top and bottom heat until tender.



Also on the plate, gardien® sweet and tangy barbecue wings (meat-free).

  1. How amazing! Believe it or not, I’ve never heard of cauliflower steaks. I keep seeing cauliflower buffalo wings popping up all over the place, but this looks fantastic. I’d live to give this a try 🙂

    1. I too have wondered how healthful liquid smoke is. It is used in very tiny quantities. A drop or two is all it takes to flavor a dish. As seldom as it is used I can’t imagine it doing harm. My dad despised the smoke flavor. For him it ruined a dish.
