Love steaks on the barbecue? Give these delicious fake steaks a shot. This creative, plant-based spin is tasty, trendy and trim! Cauliflower isn’t just great as a low carb stand-in for mashed potatoes and rice—it’s also perfect as a hearty grilled entrée. Simply slice, season, grill and enjoy. Could it be any easier. Dig in.

  • 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
