3 Quick and Easy Tips For Healthier Summer Grilling
Summer is the perfect time for grilling. Head out on the back patio, clean off the grill and gather the family for dinner outside. This summer treat your family to some great healthy grill options. Here are 3 quick and easy tips for healthy summer grilling.
Protect your meat with a marinade
. Many people are worried about the carcinogens released from the grill when cooking. Studies have been conducted and it turns out that marinating meat before putting it on the grill provides protection from carcinogens getting into the food.
Know when to flip. In order to save your meat from ripping and dripping bits of steak into the charcoal wait for the perfect char
to be achieved. When the steak is able to be pushed around on the grill the perfect char has been created and you can safely flip it.
Cook it until it is hot. In my house there is a saying that you know when Mom’s cooking is done because the smoke alarm goes off. While smoke ensures a safe temp, the meat you seek requires more precise instrumentation. For a perfectly cooked steak use a thermometer and pull it off the grill 145 and 160 degrees.
To complete your healthy dinner follow these three tips for grilling the meat and try this trick for a veggie side dish. Cut up carrots and broccoli, season lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper and place all the veggies in a pouch made out of tin foil. You can place the veggies on the grill in the pouch and let them steam while you are cooking the meat. When the steak is ready pull the veggies off with a pair of tongs, open the bag and you will have the perfect side dish.
