These thick cauliflower steaks are cooked through yet firm enough for a meaty bite, making them the perfect keto or meat-free meal. Topped with flavorful sauce, they’re pretty much effortless. To make this dish vegetarian-friendly, simply swap vegetable stock in place of the chicken stock.

  • Heat oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter in a skillet over medium. Add 2 slices of cauliflower at a time to hot skillet, and cook, undisturbed, until golden and lightly crisp, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining cauliflower slices. Set aside.

  • Whisk broth, lemon juice, and capers into skillet over medium, lightly scraping up any brown bits. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors have melded and mixture has reduced slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn heat off, and whisk in remaining 2 tablespoons butter, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Pour butter mixture over cauliflower; serve immediately.
