10 grilling tips for Memorial Day in DFW
Another use for that cedar plank: brie on the grill.
If you are planning on grilling for Memorial Day weekend but need some help, we've got you covered. Check out 10 great ideas and tips.
1. Rib-tickling wines: Pick out some vino that brings out the best in barbecued ribs.
2. There’s a fun, hot bite turning up in Dallas restaurants: blistered shishito peppers. The mild, addictive peppers are served pan-fried or grilled, as an appetizer or a side, at Belly and Trumpet, Carbone’s, Shinsei, Dish, and Tei-An. We’ve spotted them as an ingredient in dishes at other restaurants as well. See how to cook them.
3. Firing up the grill for Memorial Day? Get it done in record time. Even impatient cooks can give ribs, chicken, steak, and other favorite summer foods that great grill-kissed flavor.
4. Some say good grilled chicken is a product of trial and error. But we'd rather get it right the first time, so we consulted experts who have already beaten the path to poultry perfection.
5. No time for short ribs? Try tablitas, which are easy on the cook because they're ready in 8 minutes or less.
6. You could divide outdoor cooks into two camps: grillers and smokers – but that would overlook the Eggheads, a rather zealous subgroup. Egghead is a nickname for fans of the Big Green Egg, a ceramic, egg-shaped smoker-grill with a cultlike following. You should get one.
7. Let chef Richard Chamberlain show you to cook the perfect steak.
8. Another use for that cedar plank: Brie on the grill is a classic appetizer made modern and more convenient by being cooked on a plank on the grill. Read the recipe here.
9. Grilled vegetables and tube-shape pasta pair up in a meatless pasta dish that is colorful and full of flavor.
