Ridiculously Easy Grilled or Roasted Cabbage

5 stars from 1 rating of Roasted Cabbage

Grilled or Roasted Cabbage is Yummy!

I didn't appreciate the flavor of cooked cabbage until well into adulthood.

My first encounter with this vegetable was as a child and the cabbage was always in the form of sauerkraut. North Dakotans love their sauerkraut! I hated the smell of sauerkraut cooking and there was no-way, no-how I was putting that stinky stuff in my mouth!

This aversion lasted a long time. I turned up my nose at cabbage in any form - coleslaw, pigs-in-a-blanket, even cabbage cooked with corned beef.

When I was in my thirties, a friend talked me into trying cabbage that he had cooked on the grill. I reluctantly tried a bite and bam... I was hooked on cabbage! I'll eat cabbage just about any way now: grilled, in coleslaw, and especially when cooked with corn beef!

But not in the form of sauerkraut; uh-uh, no-way, no-how.

Even if you aren't a cabbage lover, give this recipe a try. It may change your mind.

Cook Time

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 40 min
Yields: 8 servings


  • 1 large head green or red cabbage
  • 1 stick butter, divided into 8 individual 1 tbsp slices
  • 8 tsp Creole (Cajun) seasoning
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Cabbage Cooking Instructions

  1. Rinse cabbage well. Cut cabbage into eight equal wedges.
  2. Place cabbage slices onto a double thickness of 24" x 12" piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil .
  3. Lay one butter slice on top of each wedge of cabbage.
  4. Sprinkle each wedge with 1 tsp creole seasoning. Salt and pepper to taste. Wrap foil around cabbage wedges and seal tightly.
  5. Grill over a medium flame for 30 minutes or until tender. Check for desired tenderness with fork. Turn every 10 minutes to prevent burning.
  6. Remove from heat. Carefully unwrap foil and serve.

Roasting Cabbage in the Oven

If you don't feel like firing up the grill, you can cook the cabbage in the oven.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 F.
  • Either wrap the cabbage as above or put into a cake pan and cover with foil.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes.

      Interesting recipe on cabbage. I've never had grilled or roasted cabbage before. But this does look good. And it's also great how versatile grilled cabbage is. The twists you mentioned seem tasty like having bacon with the cabbage.

      i am a great fan of cabbage too. I didn't know it can be grilled and toasted. I usually cook them either stir fry, boil in soup, briased or stew with meat recipes. Oh yes.. not forgetting salads and coleslaw. Cabbage roast and grill surely would taste awesome too. Great hub

      Yum, I love cabbage. We like to smother it with a little bacon. Not too much bacon though.
