Thai-Style Roasted Cabbage

Scott Philips

Servings: 4

Peppery cabbage becomes delightfully sweet post roast. Paired with a Thai-inspired dressing, it makes a perfect side for steak and a great base for Spicy Chicken Larb.


  • 1 medium head Savoy cabbage, halved through the core, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch ribbons, thick ribs and core discarded (about 16 cups)
  • 2 Tbs. grapeseed or vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped garlic
  • 1 Tbs. fish sauce
  • 1 Tbs. packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbs. packed finely chopped fresh cilantro; more for garnish
  • 1/2 tsp. sambal oelek; more to taste

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 425°F.
  • On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the cabbage with the oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a few grinds of pepper. Spread the cabbage out (it’s OK if the cabbage is mounded; it will shrink as it roasts), and roast, tossing every 10 minutes, until tender and most of the cabbage has turned golden brown, 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk the lime juice, garlic, fish sauce, sugar, cilantro, and sambal oelek.
  • Transfer the cabbage to a large bowl and toss with 2 Tbs. of the dressing. Season to taste with additional dressing and salt, top with cilantro, if using, and serve.

    This is delicious... the cabbage is sweet and addictive when cooked this way, even before the sauce is added.

    This cabbage, paired with the Spicy Chicken Larb is one of our household’s favorites.
