Cauliflower Steak

My Son showed me a photo of Cauliflower Steak, I couldn't wait to try it. It is such an amazing side dish.

Cauliflower Steaks

1 head of Cauliflower
I used a medium size one
Remove the leaves
Cut the stem even but not into the florets and leaving the core on.
Using a sharp knife cut the Cauliflower in Half
Cut a slice down the edge of the Cauliflower florets so that you have 2 flat sides

Save the extra Florets for Cauliflower Rice, Salads, Roasting etc..

I attempted to make this 2 times previous trying to get 3-4 steaks and each time the florets fell off.
I have seen videos where people get anywhere between 2-5 Steaks. I also wanted mine thicker and they did not fall apart.

Brush one side of the Cauliflower with EVOO
Season to your taste with:
Salt and Pepper
Garlic Powder
Smoked Paprika

Heat a Grill pan to medium temperature
Brush with EVOO
Place the two Cauliflower Steaks seasoned side down
Brush the other side with EVOO and sprinkle on more Seasonings

Cook for about 3 Minutes or until golden brown and some grill marks.
Turn over and continue to cook for another 3 minutes

Spray a Cookie Sheet with Cooking Spray
Place the Cauliflower Steaks on the Pan

Place into a Preheated 425* oven
Bake 10 Minutes
Remove pan from the oven
Brush the Cauliflower Steaks with any sauce of your choice
I used Sriracha Sauce for my Husband which is Low Carb
For mine I used Trader Joes Sriracha Roasted Garlic BBQ Sauce which is not low Carb

Cook for 10 minutes more
If they are still firm cover with tin foil tented and place back in the oven.

Mine took just a total of  27-30 minutes to be done.
Depending on the size you cut the Cauliflower will determine how long they need to roast.
Sprinkle with some Parsley and serve.
