Grilling Tip: Barbecue Tools

August 11, 2009 by andrea | Comments Off on Grilling Tip: Barbecue Tools | Filed in Handy Hints

When grilling or barbecuing, always use tongs or a spatula to turn meats. Using a fork pierces the flesh and allows juices to escape, which will cause the meat to lose flavor and may cause the fire to flare up. -from Secrets From A Caterer’s Kitchen by Nicole Aloni

If you like the flavors of Thai food then you’ll love this simple grilled chicken recipe. After cooking, the chicken is brushed with a flavorful sauce that is a little sweet, a little tart, and little spicy all at the same time. The sauce only takes a few minutes to make and really brings the grilled chicken […]

Oh my, these are good sandwiches! Basically, Spiedies (pronounced speedies) are marinated and grilled chicken served in a sandwich roll with a drizzle of lemony-garlicky sauce. Now I know they don’t look like much but they are really delicious and a cinch to make! The chicken is flavorful but it’s the sauce that makes the sandwich. Toasting the […]

Chile-Rubbed Flatiron Steak with Chipotle-Red Pepper Sauce

May 23, 2009 by andrea | Comments Off on Chile-Rubbed Flatiron Steak with Chipotle-Red Pepper Sauce | Filed in Beef, Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

Here’s a delicious, Mexi-inspired steak just in time for grilling season!  I can usually find flatiron steaks at Fred Meyer. New York strip steaks or rib-eyes would be a good substitute if you can’t find flatiron steaks (adjust the cooking time to the size of steak you use). Flatiron steaks are best cooked to medium-rare and sliced across the grain.

Skirt Steak Tacos with Grilled Tomato Salsa

April 21, 2009 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Beef, Grilling/BBQ, Main Dish, Mexican, Quick Cooking, Recipes

This recipe rocks! The whole meal can even be cooked on the grill (meaning no kitchen mess…always a bonus). The tacos call for skirt steak which is a long, thin cut of beef. Flank steak or rib-eyes would work great, too, if you can’t find the skirt steak (you will need to alter the cooking […]

A few days ago I decided to make baby back ribs for Husband on New Year’s Day (NYD). Mere words cannot describe the look of glee and sheer joy that lit up his face when I told him my cunning plan. I purchased the meat on my Costco run two days before NYD, a 5.5-lb. package of 2 racks […]

Grilled Steak and Potatoes with Garlic Butter

December 8, 2008 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Beef, Main Dish, Quick Cooking, Recipes

I’m a year-round griller. Although I live in the Pacific Northwest, I’m not going to let a little rain or cold weather keep me from enjoying my outdoor grill during the non-summer months. Yes, I sometimes get drenched or a little cold, but it’s worth it to have a juicy grill-marked piece of meat in […]
