Cauliflower Steaks with Pomegranate Sauce
Steak. What do you think of when you hear that word? Probably not what I think of. Ah, I still remember my first trip to the famed Peter Lugar’s Steakhouse in Brooklyn — where I didn’t eat anything and was slightly taken off guard. No need to get into details. What I did realize, though, is that people who eat steak tend to like that “meaty” texture and something to bite into.I was (obviously) determined to recreate this in a vegetarian dish.The first time I ate a cauliflower “steak” was a few years ago at David Burke’s Townhouse (now closed), and I was slightly confused. But I LOVED the concept — it was textured and flavorful, “meaty,” and more importantly vegetarian!I have recreated that dish in so many way and this time have come up with something that I think is perfect for the holidays — especially Christmas eve dinner!Meet my Cauliflower Steak with Pomegranate Sauce & Arugula.
