Cauliflower Steaks with Mushroom Sauce Recipe

How to Make Cauliflower Steaks with Mushroom Sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C (or 180°C fan forced). Turn the cauliflower upside down with the stalk facing up. Carefully cut through the stalk at one end, then slice 2 large steaks out of the cauliflower head – about 2cm thick. Slice any larger florets into steaks.
  2. In 2 batches, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frypan over medium-high heat. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook the steaks for 5 minutes, turning, until golden. Transfer to a large tray, lined with baking paper with any remaining florets. Roast the steaks in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden and cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the butter and remaining oil together in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes, or until soft.
  4. Add mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes, or until softened. Sprinkle over flour. Cook, stirring for 1 minute.
  5. Add stock, stirring constantly. Bring to boil. Simmer, uncovered over a medium-low heat, for 5 minutes. Stir in cream and mustard.
  6. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for a further 8-10 minutes, or until thickened slightly. Stir in parsley. Season.
  7. Serve the cauliflower with the mushroom sauce.
