Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade by John Spottiswood

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable. You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish. The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Homemade Grilled Flatbread

Homemade Grilled Flatbread by John Spottiswood

I couldn't find any authentic pita bread or other flat bread at my local grocery store, so I decided to try grilling my own. It turned out to be really fun and not too difficult. And the taste was amazing. The hardest part was rolling out the dough (I doubled the recipe). Fortunately, I was able to do that while watching a playoff…

Fantastic Chile-Coriander Chicken

Fantastic Chile-Coriander Chicken by John Spottiswood

This is another amazing recipe that I adapted from the Barbecue Bilble by Steven Raichlen. He got it from a food stand in Bombay that is famous throughout the city for it's amazing flavors. Try this chicken and you will understand why. It is truly delicious! My wife really loves the dipping sauce too. It's fantastic with or…

Grilled Shrimp by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a very tasty grilled shrimp recipe. The ingredients don't sound like they would go together that well, but the result is fantastic. Try this summer on the grill. My kids loved it..with 9 year old Kyle finishing off 2 whole skewers!

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi by John Spottiswood

This dish offers an amazing collage of flavors blending Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African flavors. Personally, I prefer the marinade and dipping sauce on these kebabs to traditional Indonesian satay. The heavy sweetness of the Indonesian peanut sauce is replaced by a tangy, spicy and slightly sweet mixture of peanuts,…

Tacos Al Carbon

Tacos Al Carbon by John Spottiswood

This is a simple steak taco recipe that emphasizes the flavor of the meat and the grill. You can spice it up by adding extra cumin or a little chili powder, jalapeno, or cayenne if you like, but it is delicious as is. Make sure to chop any additional fixings you like: I used cilantro, avocado and tomato...but they are quite tasty…

Greek Yogurt Pancakes

Greek Yogurt Pancakes by Michele Grason

I am not messing around here - these are really good pancakes! They are light and fluffy and moist and they might even be kind of good for you because they are made with non-fat Greek yogurt. At least that's what I am going to continue to tell myself as I make them every Saturday morning.

Grilled Cube Steak Burgers

Grilled Cube Steak Burgers by Robyn Savoie

Here's a tasty, tender and satisfying burger using the economical, tenderized round steak. I made this up one afternoon to feed the cement masons & finishers, who came to lay out my new driveway and patio. These burgers were wolfed down in no time, some asked for the recipe.

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass

Asian-Style Grilled Black Bass by John Spottiswood

This fish is simply delicious. The flesh is like butter and the flavor is from heaven. I know that sounds extreme, but it's true. I was in Costco and the fresh fish counter had whole black bass. I'd never made it before, but the woman behind the counter said it is similar to yellowtail (hamachi) which is one of my favorites, so I…

Spicy Asian Grilled Pork Chops

Spicy Asian Grilled Pork Chops by John Spottiswood

This is an old favorite that I've made since my days living in Chicago. We lived near the main Korean part of town (near Lawrence I think) and frequently ate Bulgogi. One day I bought some boneless pork chops and tried to create my own marinade. This one is close. I do it somewhat by taste, and you can play with the quantities a…

Potato Packets

Potato Packets by Robyn Savoie

This recipe deserves 5 stars! I adapted the original Batali recipe because it called for using a foil pan and I didn't have the space on the grill for it. The individually wrapped potatoes fit in the empty spaces on the grill where you're not cooking something else and you'll have perfect potatoes. They take 45 minutes to cook, so…
