Robert's Stuffed Cabbage on the Grill

When I met my husband, we lived in Minnesota. We joined up with a few friends of his for an afternoon Braai, that's what they call a BBQ in South Africa. Mind you this wasn't your typical fun in the sun on a Sat. or Sun. afternoon in July or August... it was February and it was cold, really cold... like -20 F degrees cold... on a frozen lake!!! Geez and I thought I had seen everything! Well turns out it was great fun; what the heck else can you do when it's that cold on a frozen lake in the dead of winter? Ice Fish? Yep they were doing that too : ) They had the Weber grill out there with lots of great food cooking over the hot coals, and passed around a tot or two to warm the innards. The pictures below are of one of those Braai's. I think this one was on Lake Minnetonka.

OK back to Stuffed Cabbage on the Grill.... everyone would bring something to throw on the grill. Sometimes my husband would wrap one of these up and toss it on the grill, it was always a big hit. Last night we had a Braai here at our now Texas home; we cooked up some lamb chops, green beans & onions wrapped in foil and a stuffed cabbage! Give it a whirl it's fantastic!

1 small cabbage
1 onion, sliced
1 tomato, sliced
1/2 stick butter, slightly softened
salt and pepper

Cut 4 equal cuts through cabbage close to the core, being careful not to cut all the way through. Rub butter into each cut, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place slices of onion and tomato in each cut. Take a large piece of aluminum foil and butter one side and sprinkle with salt and pepper, wrap the cabbage tightly with the foil. Wrap the cabbage with another piece or two of foil. Place on a med-high grill and forget about it for about 3 hrs. No turning!

This can be tossed into a camp fire too, just be sure to wrap it well, and the cooking time will be less, depending on the fire.

Unwrap and enjoy!
