Summer Grilling Tips

By

Grilling is hard, man.

At least I think so. If you want it medium rare, you must time it just right.

If you like very little pink inside, well, you have to time it right, too.

It’s a lot of pressure.

But the end result is so worth it.

That’s what I like this handy dandy grilling chart. It helps me figure out how NOT to mess up the meat.

Plus, you can see some great grilling tips from a real-live chef here. That’ll help the summer grilling become epic around your house.

Happy cooking, mates! And may the magic touch be with you. And also with me.

Grill Safety

By

It’s that time of year when we all venture out and take advantage of the glorious sunlight and grill away.

But how many of us have stopped to think about giving that grill a tune-up and brushing up on our grill safety?

I don’t know about you, but I’m just so giddy about grilling I usually just want to dive right in. But my husband always stops me – and does it the right way.

The grill is thoroughly cleaned, we use different plates and utensils for different meats and so on.

Are you up to speed on grilling best practices? Well, click here just to make sure. The folks at United Healthcare have put together some tips for staying healthy while grilling this summer.

That way, we can all keep grillin’ on in good health!!!

Ask the Chef About Beef

By

So, I’m not a chef. Far from it. I’m just a regular Joe (okay, Joanne) who loves beef and wants to keep it interesting in the kitchen.

I know there are things I should know. . . but don’t.

For instance, I only recently learned that I should soak my wooden skewers before cooking with them on the grill. For kebobs and the like.

Huh. That seems so elementary. But somehow I had missed that lesson.

What do you have a question about when you’re cooking a tantalizing steak or roast or beef tips?

Here’s a nifty little place where you can ask a real-live chef your burning questions about beef. Get it? Burning?

I’ve done that a time or two.

Just click on the “Ask the Chef” box to the right on this web page and submit your question(s).

It’s that simple!

Have fun perfecting your beef techniques with a chef’s advice! And the best part? It’s free!

Oh. Yum.

It’s time to get outside and grill! Here’s a great video to help you get the most out of your Kansas City Strips.

It’s amazing how different cuts should be cooked slightly differently to enhance the cut’s flavor. You can really take it to a whole other level if you take the time to really know your beef.

Follow these instructions and see how it works for you!

Or…just watch and enjoy the beauty of a gorgeous steak. I just like to watch it sizzle and cook and imagine the smell.

Then, of course, it makes me want to go grill one.

Happy grilling!

Humidifier for Steaks?

By

Have you seen this gadget?

It’s a grill humidifier. You pour in any liquid whose flavor you’d like to see infused in your meat, set it on the grill next to your steak – and voila!

It flavors the meat while you grill.

I can see so many possibilities with this. Orange juice. Beer. Vodka steak?

I don’t know, would the vodka explode?

Anyway, it’s an interesting theory. I wonder if it truly does work in reality.

Has anyone ever tried this? It sounds yummy!

Video Tips on Grilling Steak

By

Good Day Café: Grilling Steak: MyFoxNY.com

It’s that time of year! So many things to celebrate – Father’s Day, graduations . . . summer!

And how do we celebrate things around here? Why, with food, of course!

So to help us do that, here’s a video of Arturo McLeod, executive chef at Benjamin Steak House in NYC, showing us exactly how to grill that perfect steak or burger.

My favorite takeaway from this one? Heat your grill 30-45 minutes before putting on the steaks.

Now that’s a HOT grill! Makes sense, though.

Mmmm, I can hear that beef sizzling now . . .
