Grilling Season – It’s On!

So for those that don’t know me and my husband we LOVE to grill! The second the sun shows it’s face here in Oregon we are on it, and since summer has come early the year here are some of our favorites

Grilled veggies! The best part is that grilling just adds so much flavor! Our favorite veggie to grill is romain hearts. That might sound odd but try it, total game changer. Just cut it in half length wise and brush with oil of your choice and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill for about 2-5 minutes on each side depending on how direct or indirect the heat is when you’re grilling.

Another quick favorite is steak. We get ours from Whole Foods because they have great prices on good meat especially if you get the family pack.

When we grill, we usually do a marinade of avocado oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Easy, and fast enough to do while the coals are heating. Another marinade that we like is Braggs dressings. They are organic and non-gmo.

This is the method my mom thought me and I have shared with my girl friends that works great for testing the doneness of your steak. Don’t forget to let you meat rest after cooking for about 10 minutes, that way your meat is still moist and juicy when you cut into it, if you skip this step all of those great juices will just run out.

Well that’s all for now. Hope you get a chance to enjoy this grilling season!
