Celeriac Steaks with Salsa Verde

Celeriac Steaks are a super simple way to swap out the regular star of a steak dinner without missing any of it! Top it off with some punchy salsa verde and you’ve got yourself a winner!


Celeriac Steaks:

  • 1 celeriac, peeled
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • Salsa Verde


  1. Remove the thick skin of the celeriac and cut into 3-4 1-inch thick slices. You will end up with some leftover end pieces which you can use in a soup or fry together with the steaks.
  2. Score the celeriac with a crosshatch pattern.
  3. Rub the cumin, smoked paprika, cayenne, and a generous amount of salt and pepper into the steaks along with some olive oil.
  4. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat and fry the celeriac steaks for 5-8 minutes on both sides. Add the broth to the pan and cover with a lid to simmer for about 10 minutes until very tender.
  5. Meanwhile, make the salsa verde.
  6. Transfer the steaks to a plate and top it off with the salsa verde.


  • I love to combine these celeriac steaks with a table spread of middle eastern mezze like hummus, baba ganoush, vine leaves, roasted veggies, and more!
  • I like to use a range of herbs for the salsa verde because it adds complexity to it, but you can easily use just one or a few out of the bunch.
