Great Grilled-Tatoes

A Perfect Side for Meat

Posted on September 09, 2013
Is it possible for potatoes to be cute? 'Cause these ones were! All adorable and small, tasty and crunchy and tender - ohmygosh I want some right now! These turned out fantastic. I popped them on the warming rack of my portable grill while cooking up the Surf 'n'Turf, and just basted them with the butter-garlic mixture that I was basting everything else with. Surprisingly everything held its own distinct flavour and did not become mired in the same taste as you would think. Butter enhanced what I was doing and made these potatoes - which in turn made the meal.

Grilled Beef Tenderloin With Lobster Tails

Grilled Beef Tenderloin With Lobster Tails

Surf 'n' Turf

Posted on September 09, 2013

I love visiting my Grandmother-in-law. We have a fantastic time, and I am one of the privileged few that are allowed to use her kitchen. She loves it when I cook for her, I always make something different, and she always thoroughly enjoys it. This weekend's amazing meal was surf 'n' turf. Grilled beef tenderloin steaks with lobster tails basted with butter and garlic. Granny ate a whole steak, a lobster tail and had seconds on potatoes and veggies! This meal was very delicious, but a little pricy. Good beef costs money but it's totally worth it.

I was very lucky and got the lobster tails on sale. This will be the second official time that I have eaten lobster. Yes I know, I have it on the site, but I make it for others to enjoy. I just remember my first experience from my childhood. I was at daycare and only maybe two. The babysitter was having lobster for dinner and offered me a piece to try. I did not like the texture or the flavour and ran immediately for the garbage to spit it out. Really that was my first experience with seafood ever, and one that apparently scared me for life. (Therapy session much?) Anyway, I am working through it now, and had a very successful experience with the lobster tails. They're beefy for a seafood, a little on the rubbery side but something I will definitely try again.

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

Bacon Wrapped Asparagus

on The Grill

Posted on September 03, 2013
Like I said. I had to make this again pretty much right away. I added the balsamic mixture to give it a little pop, and allow the asparagus to blend nicely with the rest of the meal. I served them with Cajun Creole Crusted Pork Roast - A Recipe Club Newsletter exclusive recipe - and Balsamic Grilled Tomatoes. What a fantastic meal!

Balsamic Grilled Tomatoes

Balsamic Grilled Tomatoes

Topped With Feta

Posted on September 03, 2013

These were pretty good. But I fear they may have gotten a little overcooked while I was working on other parts of the dish. Not only were they bursting with flavour, well… mine kind of burst. So when you should take them off the grill, do it. And if you can, use a spoon to support it.

I know that last week I mentioned my personal attempt to go gluten and dairy free. You can get the cheese and the bread crumbs that are both gluten and dairy free! Some regular supermarkets even have whole aisles dedicated to gluten free foods! But the dairy is a little harder to come by. But this was a fantastic way to have my foods and eat them too!

Grilled Peppers

Grilled Peppers

Stuffed with Pulled Pork

Posted on August 27, 2013

So yeah. Gluten and dairy free-ish, rest assured I am not going to give up the meat! I found a butter substitute that I actually quite like, but I have to now go there with the cheese. I tried a brand and it was like a block of cheese whiz. So not appetizing, especially when I love a great cheddar and stuff. So. Recommendations there? I want to get as close to the real thing so I feel like I am not missing out. As for gluten free, I love to bake and cook (obviously) so I buy the gluten free flour and make my own stuff, that’s alright.

Have any of you given up something in your daily diet? How did it go? What was it? We would all love to hear your stories and pointers!

Pulled Pork Carnitas

With Garlic-Dill Sour Cream

Posted on August 19, 2013
What a super tasty take on a Mexican classic. I love my meat, and after making that Pulled Pork for the first time, I think that it's one of my favourites. That and the Maple Bacon Ribs. But I would love some other ideas on what to do with it! What do you do with the Pulled Pork that you make?

Grilled Pork Chops

Grilled Pork Chops

With Garlic Sauce

Posted on August 19, 2013

I don’t know what to say about this recipe. It’s got a teriyaki-ish flavour, that makes me smile. If you have leftovers, tossing the pork and sauce with some veggies and throwing it into a tortilla or pita, is very good too! Use the sauce on chicken, or beef as well, but it’s best on pork.

Don’t forget that you’re working with something containing sugars. So it will burn on the grill if you’re not careful. If you find that it’s burning and not caramelizing how you would like, move the pork chops to the cool, off side of the grill to roast for 15 to 20 minutes instead.

Roasted Leg of Lamb

Roasted Leg of Lamb

With Garlic & Herbs

The lamb turned out beautifully and dinner was a delight. Lamb is a very flavourful meat with a consistency similar to beef. It’s something I definitely want to eat more of. Next time, though? I want to use the rotisserie to cook it!

Grilled Steak

Grilled Steak

With Balsamic Honey Reduction

Posted on August 12, 2013
This was a sensational gourmet meal served on weeknight time. I accidentally over-simmered the Reduction and as it cooled, it became quite solid. But fortunately I got it onto the steak and eaten up before then, it was just a mess in the pot that soaked out easily. I really enjoyed dipping the vegetables in the Reduction and steak-juice to liven them up. What gourmet meals to you make on a weeknight?
