Great Grilling Recipes

A friend of mine and I were discussing how much we dislike cooking during the summer. For so many reasons. It heats up the house, we want to be out playing in the sun or at the pool, and the everyday reasons of feeling unappreciated. But it does not have to be this way. There are other options.

We are going to start with The Grill! There are so many options. Meats, veges, pizzas, desserts! YES! All this! The BBQ is for more than burgers and steaks. I all ready posted about the Asian Grilled Chicken Rolls. Here are a couple other ideas to get you started.

Italian-Style Marinated Steak from Kraft Foods
Prep Time: 5 min Total Time: 50 min
Makes: 4 servings

What You Need
1/2 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing
2 boneless beef sirloin steaks (1 lb.)
1/2 cup A.1. Original Steak Sauce

Make It

POUR dressing over steaks in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Turn bag over several times to evenly coat steaks with dressing. Refrigerate 30 min. to marinate.

PREHEAT grill to medium-high heat. Remove steaks from marinade; discard bag and marinade.

GRILL steaks 4 to 5 min. on each side or until medium doneness (160°F.) Brush steaks with steak sauce; let stand 10 min. Cut into thin slices to serve. Garnish with grilled cherry tomatoes, if desired.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Balance this grilled steak with smart side dishes, such as grilled vegetables and a mixed green salad for a delicious summertime dinner.

Make Ahead
Place steaks in large freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Add dressing; seal bag. Freeze up to 2 months. Thaw in refrigerator, then grill as directed. The meat marinates as it thaws.

Quick BBQ Pork Sandwiches by Kraft Foods

What You Need!
1/2 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce, divided
4 boneless pork chops (1 lb.)
4 slices onion

HEAT grill to medium heat.

RESERVE 1/4 cup barbecue sauce for spreading onto rolls; set aside.

PLACE chops on grill; brush lightly with some of the remaining barbecue sauce. Grill 6 to 8 min. on each side or until done (160°F), brushing occasionally with remaining barbecue sauce and adding onions to the grill for the last 4 min., turning after 2 min.

SPREAD rolls with reserved sauce; fill with chops, onions, lettuce and tomatoes.

Substitute onion rolls for the kaiser rolls.
