So, I’m addicted to grilling. Steak, pork, chicken, even fish.
And, like the title says, I’m grilling even when it’s below 10 degrees and snowing. (I’ve grilled in the fireplace before, but it still smelled liked a cookout 3 days later, won’t try that again. A moot point now, as I’m in a place with no fireplace.)
I’m looking for some different recipes.
I marinate chicken breasts in the fridge in lime juice and fresh garlic. No need to baste while grilling (unless you want to), the flavor is all the way through.
Pork or lamb: rub olive oil on it, salt and pepper. Basic but good.
I just recently did a brandy and brown sugar glaze on some NY strip steaks. Yummy. After flipping them the last time, pour on the glaze and let it sit for a few minutes. To make the glaze, I just mixed brown sugar, brandy (whiskey should work, too), and a tad of real butter in a smal sauce pan till it all melts together. Be careful of flame ups!
I picked up some red snapper at Gulfport Seafood (fresh daily via airplanes!), put it on aluminum foil, cracked peppercorns over it, cut up some garlic and chives, add a little bit of real butter. Wrapped up the foil and put 'em on the grill. I didn’t keep track of the time too well. I think it was about 40 45 minutes. Tasted great.
I’m not in it for low fat, obviously. It’s the taste I’m looking for!
I use propane, controls the heat better. My neighbors think I’m odd already, so it’s no big deal to see me grilling in the snow.
How about you?
