Ingredients
  • 1 head cabbage
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch fresh ground pepper
Directions
Take a whole head of raw cabbage. Cut it into quarters.

Place each quarter piece inside aluminum foil that has been shaped like a bowl. When cabbage is inside the aluminum foil you should be able to close together the foil at the top and sides so no steam can get out. Once cabbage has been placed inside the foil, season each quarter piece with 1 tablespoon butter, 2 slices bacon, salt and pepper to taste.

Close foil and cook on grill for 30-45 minutes depending on desired "doneness." I like mine to be very tender.

VARIATION: Add beef bullion cubes and vinegar `to mix it up. You can add your own spices and variation.
