A few of my summer favorites,
#1 - Grilled Pizza - We have a local woodfired pizza joint called Punch (Mpls/St.Paul) where we've poached a few recipes from their takeout menu and successfully produced them on our grill. We buy fresh pizza dough from a nearby Italian deli. The pizza goes great with a tossed greens salad with a vinagrette and a big glass of red wine.
#2 - Boneless pork chops coated with Memphis Rub. This is one of the quickest and easiest grilled meals in my arsenal. Just coat a few pork chop cuts with the Memphis Rub (which I make up in bulk in advance) and throw them on a hot grill. We serve them with Grilled cubed potatoes coated with butter, salt and pepper and/or grilled fresh green beans coated lightly with sesame oil and balsamic vinegar. Great stuff.
#3 - Memphis Ribs - One of my alltime favorites for a Sunday, especially during football season. I start Saturday night by coating the ribs with the rub and then throw them on the grill late afternoon for a couple hours and their ready to go by dinnertime. Serve with grilled corn and the cole slaw recipe from the BBQ Bible.
#4 - Anticuchos (aka Peruvian Kabobs) - We use top sirloin cuts bought from a nearby butcher shop. This recipe involves a little more preparation time, so we usually deploy it for entertainment purposes (it is a real crowd pleaser). We normally serve the kabobs with sides of instant rissotto and a crusty bread such as ciabatta. We originally got a similar Anticuchos recipe from Cooking Light that included a roasted yellow pepper dipping sauce and the sauce is a brilliant compliment to an already great kabob meal.
All this writing is making me hungry. Time to go fire up the grill!
