If you love steaks on the barbecue, but you’re looking to cut calories and fat, give these delicious fake steaks a shot. Cauliflower has been proven to satisfy as a carb stand-in (as mashed potatoes, rice and even bread and pizza crust) and now it makes its move to a hearty grilled entrée. And did I mention, it’s super easy to make?

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 4 servings
  • 1 head cauliflower, cut into 1-inch thick slices
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt (optional)
  • ½ cup lower sugar barbecue sauce (like Stubb’s Original)

Brush both sides of each slice of cauliflower with olive oil and season with a sprinkle of black pepper and optional salt. Place cauliflower slices on heated grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side.

Coat each side with barbecue sauce and place back on grill for about 3 to 5 more minutes per side. (Alternatively, you can roast your cauliflower “steaks” at 400˚ for about 30 minutes, flipping them over about halfway through.)  

Makes about 4 steaks; 1 steak per serving
