Lucille’s Introduces New Slow Smoked & Grilled Cauliflower Steak

Slow Smoked & Grilled Cauliflower Steak

A plant-based entrée at Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que? It’s smoked and grilled, of course!

Signal Hill, CA  (  The popularity of plant-based menu items is continuing to grow and today family owned, award-winning barbeque destination Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que is introducing its first vegetable-centered entrée. Today the new Slow Smoked & Grilled Cauliflower Steak joins other vegetable-forward sides to offer more options for guests looking to enjoy a delicious, flavorful yet meatless meal.

“Our guests appreciate how our slow-smoked style gives our ribs, brisket, chicken and pork their succulent flavor. Now we’re taking that same approach with this new Slow Smoked & Grilled Cauliflower Steak that is richly satisfying in a familiar and distinctively Lucille’s way” said Joan Hansen, director of marketing at Lucille’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, which operates 23 family-owned restaurants across California, Nevada and Arizona.

The Slow Smoked & Grilled Cauliflower Steak features a thick cut of fresh cauliflower that is marinated in Lucille’s special seasonings, slow-smoked, grilled to perfection and topped with a savory housemade chimichurri sauce. The cauliflower steak is served with garlic mashed potatoes, sautéed seasonal vegetables and more chimichurri sauce for dipping.

This new entrée is joined by other vegetable-forward options including three premium sides:

Roasted Street Corn – Fresh, tender roasted corn brushed with cilantro lime butter, rolled in cotija cheese.
