Yep, you read it right….cabbage ball. A whole cabbage packed with seasonings and butter BBQ’d to a soft, flavorful bunch of yum. Takes about an hour to prep and make so plan ahead. I would think this is a great camping item too.
- 1 head of cabbage
- 1 stick of butter
- Seasoning of your choice…..lots of them
Pull off outer most leaves and core cabbage…..Exposing the middle, removing all the core. Start your grill, BBQ, open fire pit area. Pull out a large piece of foil, butter the area that will touch the cabbage, sprinkle some seasoning on the butter, set aside. Pour into the hole a teaspoon at least of your favorite spices, put in a tablespoon of butter, push down with the back of a spoon or your fingers, do it again, pushing down, add spices and butter until the stick is used up. Trust me you can not over spice this. When the butter is used up take the buttered foil and wrap the cabbage up tight. Wrap the cabbage ball a few more times and place it in the fire, coals etc. turn every 15 minutes or so until cabbage is soft. You test this by squeezing with a set of tongs.
I cooked it for 30 minutes then but my grill on the coal fire and cooked it the other 30 on the grill. It came out great. To avoid having burnt leaves make sure there is a least three layers of foil. When the cabbage is done cut open the foil and serve. Everything is blended, tender and good.
As always we hope you enjoy.
