Asian Broccoli on the Grill

Brad Nichols


Another in the 'foil pouch' side dish series that is a big part of my grilling menu, this broccoli has great flavor and goes well with a wide variety of grilled meats. Chinese Broccoli can be directly substituted as well.

I find that while these foil pouch dishes are not traditional 'BBQ', they are a great way to keep the meal simple to prepare (everything on the grill!) and most importantly - avoid a lot of post meal clean up since you can simply throw the foil away when you're done! Enjoy!

1 large
broccoli (or 2-3 crowns) cut into bite sized pieces
scallions - chopped
2 clove
garlic - minced
1 Tbsp
sesame oil
4 Tbsp
oyster sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all ingredients on a piece of heavy duty aluminum heavy duty foil - shiny side up - large enough to leave 2-3 inches of clear foil on either side and 4-5 inches top and bottom of your vegetable pile
Bring the top and bottom edges of the foil together and fold over several times, leaving some air space between broccoli and foil.
Repeat with each side of your foil package until a sealed pouch is formed
Cook pouch indirectly on the grill - meaning lid closed, but on an upper rack, over a non-burning element, or to the side of your burning charcoal - for 10-12 mins, Flip the pouch over at the halfway mark. Total cooking time will vary with heat level of BBQ/fire
When broccoli is cooked, the pouch will swell up with steam. Note - this will only work if your pouch is well sealed and you haven't accidentally poked a hole in it during handling
