Easy and lowfat - that is if you don't add a bunch of fattening stuff to cover up it up! This is meant to be simple! You really have to like cabbage to appreciate this recipe. This was a really great way to cook it. It was fast and easy. I sprayed a little Pam on the foil to prevent any sticking. I used minced garlic vs. garlic powder and added just a bit of water in order for it to steam. Once it came off the grill I added just a bit of light butter - simple and delicious! Read More

I baked the cabbage in the oven instead of on the grill and added a little fat-free margarine. It was really awful. I don't know what went wrong but it was sharp flavored and bitter. Really disapointing because I love cabbage. Read More

I took some of the reviewer's suggestions (bacon grease kosher salt butter) and thought that this was great. If you don't do some upgrades it can taste a little bland. I couldn't stop eating it the first time that I made it. Read More

This is one of the best ways I've ever eaten cabbage. We ate this numerous times after finding this recipe last summer. This has become one of my favorite BBQ sides. It cooks quite qickly so be sure to watch that it doesn't burn. Also be sure to add butter or margerine it's what makes this! Read More

This was good. I sprinkled the cabbage with fresh cracked pepper and a little kosher salt. Added pats of butter to the wedges spooned just a touch of bacon grease over them and maybe 2 T of water. It was SOOOOooo close to my "fried cabbage". Read More

Being on a low fat diet and loving the taste of fried cabbage I wanted to give this a whirl. I threw in some onions and seasoned with minced garlic cracked pepper and spray butter. I loved it. It "almost" tasted like the real thing. When I am dieting I am always looking for ways to make the food I can eat taste better. This is one I will make again. Read More

My husband and I really like this quick and simple recipe. Grilling cabbage outside on the grill instead of indoors keeps from stinking up the house (yhea!). For variety, try using cajun seasoning instead of garlic powder. But, both are great!! Read More

Awesome! I added a bit of seasoning salt instead of plain salt and used coarse black pepper. You can also add a tsp or so of Olive Oil to the packet and it seems to help it cook a little faster. I make this quite often in the summer! Read More

I've been making a similar recipe for years. I have a few tricks to save time and add flavor. I microwave the cabbage wedges for 5 minutes prior to placing in foil. This saves about half of the grill time. I wrap each cabbage wedge with a slice of bacon (turkey bacon works great). I place a teaspoon of margarine on each wedge and sprinkle with Garlic seasoning such as Mrs. Dash. Read More
