Cabbage on the Grill- So good

macca Aug 7, 2007 03:31 PM

Had a head of cabbage, and was not in the mood for a slaw. Sliced up some garlic and shallots. Quartered the cabbage, and put some butter, garlic, shallots in the layers of the cabbage. I had a lemon pepper grinder I had bought at TJ's, so I sprinkled some in the layers,too. Wrapped in individual tin foil packets- with a splash of olive oil and some water. I cooked them on the top rack of the grill while I cooked the ribs, then in to the lower rack for a few minutes to get the outer leaves caramelized. They were really good, and a nice change of pace. Served with ribs, biscuits and rice.

    I have done something similar with halved romaine hearts.....delicious!!! Brushed with olive oil and grilled a minute or 2 on each side. YUM!

      Great idea- I prefer romaine, but one family member prefers iceberg. So there is always lots of lettuce in my house- and any ideas are appreciated!

      Did you take the foil off at the end or leave it wrapped? Yum. Thanks, never thought of that.

        Left it wrapped. THe bottom of the cabbage was nicely charred, and the rest was fork tender. I think I may also try it another way next time- quartered cabbage in tinfoil, with a bit of chicken stock. Onto the grill to steam, then out of the foil- brush with garlic infused oilive oil, and directly onto the grill to get a nice char.

        What type of cabbage did you use?

          Just a green cabbage- Was not too big, and a quarter was a good sized individual serving.

          This sounds great. Easy, and you're right, like a nice change of pace. Thanks for sharing it. I see a grilled cabbage quarter in my near future.

            I'm a big fan of radicchio quartered, with a little salt an olive oil, then grilled just until the edges get a little char.
