This is an easy side dish that we can't seem to get enough of once the grill starts firing in the summer. We use one large metal baking dish just for cabbage, that way none of the others get ruined on the grill.

Isnt cabbage on the grill awesome! But I use just foil and wrap wedges indivuallly there is no mess and each serving can be customed if you have different tastes in the family like I do! That way you dont have to ruin a baking dish. Also reyonld wrap has the "foil bags" you can use if you are doing a large order! Read More

This was so good! I never thought of doing cabbage on the grill. It tasted like Haluski with out the noodles! I didn't bother with the whole metal baking dish thing. I just cut the cabbage into wedges and removed the core. I cut pieces of foil big enough for each wedge then sprayed the foil with Pam so nothing would stick. I seasoned each wedge with a bit of salt, pepper, and minced garlic. I put a bat of butter inside and wrapped them up. Delicious - I'll definitely make these again. Read More

My grandmother taught me this years ago. For a spicier version, season with cayenne pepper. I wrap individual wedges in foil. The moisture content cooks the cabbage. If you aren't up to lighting the grill, this works very well in a 450 degree oven...tightly covered heavy pan-no foil. Read More

I have made this dish several times both as is and now with some minor modifications. It's the absolute best way to make cabbage! I use about 1-2 cloves minced garlic and instead of seasoning salt I use kosher salt (to taste). Instead of a metal baking dish I double wrap the wedges in aluminum foil and cook on the grill for 30 minutes. Read More

For a full meal.. brown some ground beef & spicy sausage, drain & put in the foil packets with the cabbage. For St Patty's day we did this with corned beef also! EASY great dinner! Read More

O.K. If you are looking to impress some friends. Show up for their cook-out with these prewrapped in individual foil and put them on the grill away from the direct heat and watch the fun as the guest open their little packet of goodness. I have cooked this recipe many times. The only thing I add is a sliced onion as a last step. Read More

What a great way to eat cabbage! I love what the grilling does to the flavor of the cabbage. In order to cut some calories and fat I use I Can't Believe it's Not Butter instead of real butter. Read More

Came out great! I made mine into individual packets for easy serving. Go heavy on the salt and easy on the pepper though. Cabbage needs a good bit of salt but a lot of black pepper is not so tasty on it. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
