  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat.
  2. Slice the top off of the head of cabbage so that it will sit flat with the cored side up. Place the butter, ice cube and garlic into the hole where the core used to be. Season with salt and pepper. Wrap tightly with foil, sealing at the top of the head.
  3. Place wrapped cabbage core side down directly on the grate. Let cook for 25 to 30 minutes, or until tender. Slice into wedges, and serve.

This was very good. I made two cuts about 2/3rds of the way down the cabbage so I could add some onions inside and let the foil hold it back together.


I love this! I spread a little bit of olive oil instead of the butter, and since I make one wedge at a time for myself, I don't need the ice cube. It still comes out great and I've made this many times since trying it the first time!

I'm nuts too...

I didn't get to try this..but only because my husband ate it all. =0. He loved it! Well before everyone thinks that he is a pig (actually he is almost a clone of Nick Cage), I scaled the recipe down to use the 1/4 of a "small" head of cabbage that was left over. He said that it was really good & to do a repeat, which is all good to me! Thanks Gail!
