Get ready to fire up the grill! Summer provides the perfect opportunity to grill an entire meal–even dessert–over the open flames of a grill. The abundance of fresh vegetables makes meal-planning and prep even easier and more flavorful, especially when their peak flavors are enhanced by the smoky goodness of the grill. Mill Creek Ranch Resort cabins are chock full of grills and fire pits, so we’ve gathered some of the best ideas for you to use during your next stay in one of our cabins for sale in Texas.
3 key ingredients to seasoning your meat and veg are olive oil, salt, and pepper. While fresh herbs make a delicious accompaniment if they’re readily available, the fresh taste of the meats and vegetables you’re grilling really pop with a healthy coating of olive oil, salt, and pepper. One notable exception: hamburger patties are amazing with Montreal Steak seasoning rubbed in before grilling.
The 3 key ingredients to grilling an entire meal are preparation, preparation, preparation. Prep your meats, vegetables, bread and even fruit before you start placing any of them on the grill so that once something is ready to come off, you’re ready to place the next round of yummy goodness on the grill. It may be tempting to try to prep the next round of food while the current foods cook, for best results you’ll want to give your attention to the grill.
As a general rule, cook meats and any harder to cook veggies–like potatoes–first. As you remove the meat from the grill to rest, you can add faster-cooking vegetables like zucchini or asparagus. To add some unbelievable flavor to your meal, keep a cast-iron skillet handy and place it directly on the grill to easily char some onions and even grape tomatoes. As the vegetables finish cooking, toss a loaf of herbed French bread–sliced lengthwise–on the grill for the final five minutes.
For a dessert like no other, make sure to grab some mangoes or bananas along with vanilla or coconut ice cream. Once you’ve finished grilling your meal, place the unpeeled fruit over the dying embers to caramelize while you eat. Scoop up the ice cream, split open the fruit and scoop out the gooey fruit over the ice cream.
