Barbecued Sweet Onions


21 people made this

This is a sensational side dish for a summer barbecue and almost no trouble to make. It tastes just like you're biting in to French onion soup.


Serves: 6 

  • 6 whole sweet onions
  • 6 beef stock cubes
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 6 30x30cm squares aluminium foil

Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat barbecue for medium heat.
  2. Peel brown outer layers from an onion. Using a sharp knife cut a cone-shaped core from the top of the onion, about 2/3 of the way into the vegetable. The core should be about 4cm wide at the top.
  3. Insert a stock cube into the hollowed-out space followed by an ice cube (for more moisture, if desired). Top the ice cube with 1 tablespoon of butter. Wrap the filled onion in a sheet of aluminium foil, leaving a small vent at the top. Repeat with the rest of the onions and filling ingredients.
  4. Set the foil-wrapped onions on the preheated barbecue vent-sides up and cook until onions are tender, 20 to 30 minutes.
