I love everything about summer; the weather, swimming, outdoor parties and especially the food! Now you all know I love to cook and this is perfect weather to get outside and grill up something fabulous for my friends and family! Here are some of my tips for grilling this summer. Enjoy!
- Get a good cut of meat–at least a full inch of thickness will guarantee your meat stays tender, moist and delicious.
- Marinate! Marinating meat overnight adds flavor and keeps meet tender. Use about one and a half cups of marinade for every pound of meat.
- Always use tongs to turn meat on the grill. Some people use a fork but I’ve found that this pokes holes in the meat and allows all of that good moisture to escape.
- Add salt (kosher is best) and seasonings to meat before grilling. Add BBQ sauce or ketchup after.
