So my wife has asked me five times now to ask about the cauliflower steaks. The journey began like this-- we went veggie and I would stop by the site every once in while. I began to stop by more often. We bought The Kind Diet. Everything changed. Our foods, our moods, everything. Early on, wifey attempted the cauliflower steaks. She followed the instructions but ended up with a mash, which made the best side dish ever. Now that I'm registered on the site, she asks me the following, "Will you ask Alicia about the steaks?" That made me laugh. I explained that there is a forum and here I am. So any advice regarding the steaks would be great.
How does it end up mash? I've never had trouble, you just need to make sure you cut them thick so they don't fall apart, but usually the ends end up in pieces. We still put the pieces in and brush them with olive oil and pepper. I love this dish, the fennel is such a nice addition.
Make sure you cut it width wise. If you cut it parralell to the stem it will all fall appart but if you cut it perpendicular to the stem, in one inch thick slices you should get three good steaks (maybe four). Also, be sure to gently guide them to the baking sheet/dish. They are very fragile. Good luck!
I misunderstood. After further investigation, this is what I've come up with. She did cut the cauliflower width wise, though she's not sure if she went thick enough. The thickness may have been the issue. She ended up with crumbles, not mush, before the oven stage. As she was cutting, they began to crumble, so at that point, she made cauliflower mashed potatoes (yum). The fragility seems to be the main thing. Thank you both for the advice. Next time, we will be extra careful in handling and getting the steaks into the oven. The olive oil and pepper is a good tip!
