Red Cabbage Steaks

Red Cabbage Steaks

We simply couldn't imagine our Christmas dinner plate without any red cabbage on it! But there's certainly more than one way to cook it! Having tried numerous versions of braised cabbage, we have decided to do something slightly different this year. We present to you our Red Cabbage Steaks with Balsamic, boasting a perfect sweet-savoury combination, crispy sides and elegant cook that will make your Christmas plates look amazing!

  • 1/2 red cabbage cut into 4 slices
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tsp runny honey
  • 1 tsp apple sauce
  • ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 12 cloves


  • Preheat the oven to 200°C Fan. Line a large baking tray with baking parchment and lightly brush it with olive oil. Arrange the slices of cabbage on a baking tray.
  • Make a glaze by mixing together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, honey, apple sauce, crushed garlic, cinnamon and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Stud each slice with 3 cloves and spoon the glaze all over.
  • Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove the cloves and flip the cabbages over with a large spatula, taking extra care to keep the steaks intact (which can be tricky). Place the cloves on top of the steaks and roast for another 15-20 minutes.
  • Remove the cloves and serve as a delicious side dish.
