Grilled Cabbage Recipe

I don't really like cabbage, but I fixed this recipe and couldn't believe how good it was! We threw some burgers on the grill and our dinner was complete. I never thought I'd skip dessert because I was full from eating too much cabbage! —Elizabeth Wheeler, Thornville, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 medium head cabbage (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1. Cut cabbage into eight wedges; place on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 24 in. x 12 in.). Spread cut sides with butter. Sprinkle with onion, garlic salt and pepper.
  • 2. Fold foil around cabbage and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 20 minutes or until tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 8 servings.

"I used a suggestion from another review, and I sliced the cabbage somewhat thin. I also baked it in the oven. This is a great way to serve cabbage."

"Made the recipe as written. The only thing I did different was cook it on the grill about 15 min longer than suggested because we like our cabbage more soft. I will definitely make this again! It's delicious and easy!"

"And if you don't have a grill, this is just about as good fixed in a hot oven! I have to say - I agree wholeheartedly with the person who said in an earlier review: if a person changes the recipe, they shouldn't rate the original!"

"I don't usually give any recipe a 1 star. but this was awful and I do love cabbage. I cooked it on a charcoal grill and after 20 min. it was still very under cooked, I let it stay for another 30 mins., and It was tender done. I couldn't wait to try it, but was very disappointed. Unless I did something horribly wrong, I don't know how this recipe got 9 outstanding ratings."

"This is so scrumptious. I did it exactly as the recipe states and can see no way to improve upon it. The onions and cabbage taste so sweet."

"In my opinion, a recipe shouldn't even be rated if changes are made to the recipe. That being said, I followed the instructions to a T and it is absolutely positively delicious!!"

"I do it in the oven all the time !  About 450 degrees, and I slice my wedges quite thin. Drizzle with the recipe ingredients and bake til the edges are about great flavor !!  The blacker the better as far as we're concerned !  About 20 - 25 minutes."

"I made this tonight, and it was delicious! I used spreadable canola oil Land o Lakes butter so it was really easy to put on the cabbage wedges. I put 4 wedges in foil and wrapped it like a loaf. Did the same with the other 4 so I had 2 bundles. I sliced the onion really thin, but left it in slices instead of chopping. Drizzled a tiny bit of olive oil over the cabbage before wrapping it. Tasted amazing. Even my son, who doesn't like cabbage, was gobbling it up!!"

"Wow! If you're used to eating cabbage only in a coleslaw, you're in for a treat. Cabbage takes on an entirely new flavor when it's grilled like this, and it was very easy to prepare. We just bought a new grill, and I look forward to making this often!"
