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!

How To Make asian broccoli on the grill

  • 1
    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
  • 2
    Bring the top and bottom edges of the foil together and fold over several times, leaving some air space between broccoli and foil.
  • 3
    Repeat with each side of your foil package until a sealed pouch is formed
  • 4
    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
  • 5
    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
