We are just 4 short weeks away from the unofficial start of summer Memorial Day. For some of you that means pulling out the grill and hosting your first BBQ. Personally I grill year round provided it’s not snowing or raining to hard =). I really enjoy the way food tastes on the grill, put it make cleaning up a cinch! Here are 2 of my favorite recipes.
Grilled Steak Tips In Sweet Balsamic Marinade
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp dark brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound steak tips, trimmed
salt and pepper
In a large glass bowl, whisk together the balsamic, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and garlic.
Add the steak tips to the mixture, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 25 minutes at room temperature. Turn the meat in the bowl several times during the marinading process.
Prepare grill to medium-high heat and put on some non-stick spray one the grate or prepare a grilling pan for the steak tips.
Remove steak tips from the bowl and discard marinade.
Sprinkle both sides of steak tips with salt and pepper, then place steak tips on grill, close lid, and cook for just 3 minutes, flip and cook another 3 minutes or until done to your liking.
Remove steak tips from grill and let the steak tips stand at room temperature for 5 minutes; cover loosely with a foil tent, but do not close tight.
Mango Chutney Turkey Burgers On The Grill
1 medium sweet onion
1 pound ground turkey
4 Tbsp mango chutney, divided
2 cups shredded lettuce
Prepare the grill to medium-high heat.
Cut onion in half, around the equator, and dice half finely and slice 4 thin circles out of the other half.
In a large bowl, put the diced onion in with 1 tablespoon chutney and all the ground turkey; then mix together with your hands and form 4 burgers.
When grill is ready, put round onion slices on and cook 2 or 3 minutes on each side just until charred; remove.
Put burgers on at the same time and grill, flipping once, until meat is cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes each side; remove.
I’ve made recipes using wheat rolls as well as whole wheat wraps, both are pretty yummy!
Makes 4 servings.
