Let's Make Cabbage on the Grill

Hey there!  Thanks for stopping by Thinking Out Loud Thursday.  Today I'm sharing a recipe I just can't stop thinking about!

For reasons I can't really figure out, we haven't used our outdoor grill much this year.  A few weeks ago Eric replaced some of the parts in the grill and we were anxious to light it up.  If you are from St. Louis, a popular meat to throw on the grill is pork steaks.  If you've never had them, you don't know what you're missing!  One of the dishes I love to have alongside our pork steaks is cabbage on the grill.  It's so easy and cooks beside your meat.  

Here's What You Need
1 Head of Cabbage
1 Onion
1 Stick of Butter
Garlic Salt
Seasoned Salt
Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil

Here's What You Do
Tear off a couple large pieces of aluminum foil.  We like keeping a roll of the heavy-duty kind on hand and the pieces we use are about 18" square.  Lay one piece on top of the other for double thickness.  

Chop up the head of cabbage and onion.  Lay on top of the foil.  Cut the butter into squares and dot the top of the cabbage and onion.

Sprinkle garlic salt and seasoned salt on the top.  My brother likes to pour some beer on top.  That does change the flavor a bit, so if you're a beer fan give it a try.

Close up the foil to make a foil packet.  If your square isn't big enough to close the top, put another piece of foil on the top to close it off.  Place the foil packet on your hot grill.

Let the foil pack stay on the grill for about 30 minutes.  Your cabbage will cook to a nicely flavored, tender doneness.

This is one of our favorite side dishes to have with barbeque!  It's so easy to make and you don't even have to dirty any dishes making it.  Definitely a win-win!  

Now it's your turn.  What are you thinking out loud about today?  Link up and share!
