Summer BBQ Recipes

It’s almost officially SUMMERTIME!

School is winding down and my kids are ready to take full advantage of their carefree days.  Not only are we breaking out the super high SPF sunscreen, we’re also tweaking our grocery list and stocking up on essentials so we’re prepared for any impromptu summer picnics and grill outs.  Because we live in the concrete jungle of NYC, where our “back yard” is shared with hundreds of strangers, we seek out every opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, to go east and hang out and grill out.  Plus, our annual garden planting takes place in two weeks!

But, I still have charcoal on the brain from my afternoon of taste testing steak samples at the Walmart Choice Steak Challenge.  I’m chomping at the bit to get outside and GRILL (oh, and don’t forget, today is the last day to enter to win a 19-piece BB! Tool Set and a copy of Bobby Flay’s book Grill It).

I’m happy to share with you the winning recipe from the Fox & Friends Walmart Choice Steak Contest as well as some other the amazing steak recipes and side dishes I tasted at the grill off (where Richard Chamberlain’s Grillet Filet Mignon w/ Smoky Spice Rub was declared the consumer-voted winner).  As I’m constantly learning, it’s important to stretch your imagination on the grill and break the meat barrier.  And, there are plenty of veggie and fruit side dishes I’ve leaf-eared for our summer repertoire which I hope make it on to your summer BBQ hit list too.  So, enjoy, there’s lots more to come.
