Since I received the Traeger Smoker for a birthday gift, I have been searching for delicious recipes. Having little experience with smoking meat (or smoking much else for that matter), I am learning the basics and expanding from there. It is the turning out to be the best education of my life.
Rachel came across a grilled cabbage recipe on Pinterest from www.greenlitebites.com, which we decided to cook on the smoker. Having just received a fresh cabbage from our CSA, the timing could not have been better.
Smoked Cabbage with Bacon
1 green cabbage, quartered
4 teaspoons olive oil
4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 package bacon, baked
Wrap each quarter of cabbage in tin foil with 1/4 of each ingredient. Smoke at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. When finished cooking, spread chopped bacon on top.
This dish is very delicious. The bitterness of the cabbage is married perfectly with the lemon & Worcestershire sauce. The bacon adds some depth and crunch. We had two full plates and they both went quickly. Sous Chef Sam even took some home to have for breakfast.
