CAULIFLOWER STEAK RECIPE


Hey guys it is Barry here welcome to my virgin
kitchen. Alright Boston, oh he wants to get down the smells in this kitchen are incredible
today. Today I am showing you how to make a cauliflower
steak, that is right a steak of cauliflower. I cannot tell you how amazing it tastes in
fact there is a place right there I will have some right now.
It is so incredible we have charred the tops and bottoms and then roasted it in the oven
until super soft. Super good, if you want to have a go hit pause on the video now write
the ingredients down here is an important message.
A bit of news, a lot of you have been saying where is the studio, well unfortunately the
studio has just not worked out for a variety of reasons. It took me 3 times the amount
of time it would to do a video with Phoebe so I am ripping out the kitchen in here and
bringing the studio back to my house. I have so many videos in the bag you probably
will not notice it and hopefully in a few weeks time the studio should appear here hopefully.
There are no problems with it its just being efficient and making this guy happy.
Dude I am going to put you down nobody wants to see your bum. Well some of you do. Anyhow
to make the cauliflower steak first up grab a mixing bowl and pour in the olive oil. Then
also grab lime juice and a lemon you can mix that up as much as you like.
Try not to get any lemon pip in there I did that nevermind and also a chopped garlic clove.
Push that in whisk it together and then leave to one side it is going to help baste, I love
that word, it is all about that baste, about that baste, nope, baste our cauliflower.
Speaking of the cauliflower grab the head, that sounds quite medieval grab the head and
just rip off the outer green leaves on the cauliflower try to get as many of those off
as you can. The core of the cauliflower is what will hold
it together kind of like when you are chopping an onion.
Get it as neat as you can around there and then level it off so that your cauliflower
stands upright. With it upright take a cut through the middle
of the cauliflower straight through the bottom about inch strips there to create the steaks.
Each cauliflower will make enough to make 4 of 5 steaks obviously of various sizes so
ratio that up as many as you like but I have just gone for 2 today.
What I did then was brush the baste on both sides of the steak and then added the paprika,
some good quality salt and the zest. Add as much as you like.
We are cooking this two ways you could just whack it in the griddle pan and it will be
quite firm and crispy in the middle but we are going to completely caramelise ours so
get a nice hot griddle pan and place the steak in there one at a time around 6 minutes either
side, while it is in there you can do your seasoning either side too.
Exactly the same steps, flip it over for another 5 or 6 minutes to cook through. I placed mine
into a baking tray so this is how we cook it through to the middle so if your strips
are thick you may want to do this to make it super soft.
Both of my steaks are in there, put some foil on and whack in the oven for a good 25 minutes
to completely soften. You can cook it a little longer just to make sure it is softened through
and it will caramelise. When you take it out that flavour will be
absolutely incredible so whack it down on a plate, little bit of coriander on there
maybe some lime or lemon zest, whatever you need to do to bring some flavour out.
It is so full of flavour though, it is amazing. Yeah it is proper awesome so smokey and zingy
too check out my last video if you have not already. And vote for my next recipe at myvirginkitchen.com
see you next time.

    Don't normally like cauliflower however I think I could be a convert looks amazing good work Barry ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

  2. wordlesswonders

    This looks amazing! Do you think it would work to spray the cauliflower with fry lite and then add seasoning? I'm doing Slimming World and I'd rather not use all that oil if possible!
    I always love your videos Barry ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ben Melling

    Great video as usual Barry! I have a question; is it OK if I use the recipes from your book to make videos for my friends? I will probably upload it to Facebook and do a lot of advertising for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ย

  5. Lauren Elizabeth

    Such a shame the studio didn't work out, it looked and was pretty amazing! Ah well though ๐Ÿ˜Š Ill definitely need to try this out as I'm trying to vary my vegetarian pallet compared to just my boring one, thanks for the recipe Barry ๐Ÿ˜„

  6. katyyrrep

    YUUUM! I just bought a big cauliflower today (cause I'm trying to eat healthy :D) and this is a great way of preparing it!
    My mom dips the cauliflower into a stirred egg and then puts it in a pan and fries it. That's also very delicious!

    Thank you Barry! Greetings from Germany

    Why am i watching this video i dont even like cauliflower!!!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚(still loving the vids though!!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜„)

    I'm a vegetarian, but cauliflower is my Room 101. But, have to admit that you make it look tempting even so. As a Hampshire born lass who grew up in Teesside and now living in Northumberland, I would love to see you tackle a traditional North East dish I grew up eating a lot of. It's called Panackalty, a Geordie take on Lancashire hot pot, though it's either made with sausages, or if money's tight (which it frequently was growing up) corned beef can be used instead.

  9. Shirley Castle

    Thats a real good idea. I made beetroot burgers kinda like that and they were great. You have enough strong mates who could carry your kitchen over to your house? Hahah Looking forward to it and hope its done with few headaches for you.

  10. Marit Kok

    I'm looking forward to introducing this to my family! They usually eat cauliflower very boring: boiled cauliflower with no spices, corn starch paste/sauce (no spices either, just water and starch boiled together), boiled potatoes, a meatball and some gravy. That's not how to eat cauliflower! Thank you for this recipe!

  11. Mandarin Duck

    Finally!ย  I've been wanting to see this one ever since I first heard you mention it!ย  It looks so good – we'll have to try it.ย  Thank you! : Dย  (And hope your studio move/reconstruction goes well!)

  12. KOBF sindey 2000

    ย hi MVK I've tried this recipe many times most are successful but I want to see your spin on it. It is a inside out burger; its a chees burger but the cheese is inside the burger patty ๐Ÿ™‚ hope to see this in the future its grate for parties and showing off lol

  13. Luna Luvgood

    i love it! can you please do more vegan/vegetarian recipes? btw you remind me so much of the hobbit (in a good way) it actually makes me so happy to watch your videos :')

  14. Max Visser

    i don't find the arguments very reasonable. Lovely Barry just spend allot of time, effort and probably a good amount of money in this studio and what huh? it doesn't work. Make it work Barry don't throw it away because your dog doesn't feel comfortable. But i must say i didn't find the studio design very good, who uses a electronic cooker for a youtube cooking channel? Good that you found a solution that fits, but what a pity.ย 

    Oh and haha great recipe!

  15. Layla V

    I really like cauliflower in general, but this recipe is something absolutely amazing! Can't wait to try and make cauliflower steaks myself ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Paul John Hendry

    Hi Barry looks great!!

    Sorry to hear about the studio but good that you are moving it to your house look forward to seeing it!!!

    Cheers Barry !!!

  17. mamavegana

    That's my kind of steak there ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you! It looks enticing! I guess using smoked paprika and regular salt would be okay, too?

  18. Maggie Milly Molly May

    Just made this, it was really good! I will definitely make it again, maybe try it with different spices. I ate it with a creamcheese garlic dip.

  19. Deli JahrdesBuches

    I am going to have that for dinner tonight ! Just bought all the ingredients and totally looking forward to it. Thank you for that idea Barry <3 P.S.: what would fit as little side dish you think ?

  20. pinkynbaby

    Gutted to hear about your studio!! It looked so cool and loved your vlogs on how you made it happen! Sorry it didn't work out ๐Ÿ˜ž

  21. ShadowBreaker9001

    I really love the simplicity of your recipes. I watch many youtube chefs for the food porn factor, but when I watch your vids I actually think to myself "hey, I could easily make that too!"

    We'll be trying this one next weekend.

  22. Miranda L

    I love to surprise my family with fresh vegetables that actually taste good! I've always hated vegetables but I realized it's because all i've ever had are boring, bland steamed ones! I've now tried to make vegetables more flavorful and more enjoyable to eat. My favorite simple thing to do is roast chopped brussels sprouts in the oven with some olive oil, pepper, salt, and chopped garlic! I do the same with asparagus, and add in a little Parmesan cheese to those! So good and definitely not bland.

  23. Alicia Seecharan

    If you don't eat anything else with the cauliflower…. you should eat the whole cauliflower. It's probably not even 300 calories. I do it once in a while, but not yet in the cauliflower steak style. Paprika… really. Maybe this weekend.

  24. brianartillery

    That looks excellent. I am partial to cauliflower, and it's always good to discover a new way to enjoy it. Useless fact: the white head of the cauliflower is actually called the 'curd'.

  25. blopblopblee

    What sides would you recommend with this dish? My boyfriend hates cauliflower but loved my cauliflower fried rice I made him. I'd love to surprise him with cauliflower steak but I'd like to make a full meal for him.

  26. Rocka Darkoda

    Please Reply… I am going to make this for me and my kid..He is a 10yr old vegan and i have been trying to find a awesome way to cook this and you have the best way according to my research

  27. Shell0517nj

    This was delicious. brushed cauliflower with olive oil. sprinkle with paprika. seared cauliflower in a cast iron pan. add additional oil if need. cook 45 mins. set oven 425 and place uncovered cast iron pan in oven. flip cauliflower steak half way through. remove and sprinkle with salt. yummy.
