5 Best Meats for Grilling
Apart from chicken and pork, which we shall discuss later, steak is one of the most popular grilling options. Have you ever looked at one of those cow diagrams that shows all the different kinds of meat in a map-like format? If you ask us, we find it fascinating. Rib, shank, brisket, tenderloin, round, and other cuts are available.
Almost everyone can safely grill chicken! Chicken is another versatile grilling meat. You can grill the whole chicken, quarters, breasts, thighs, or legs, and even season them simply with garlic and herbs.
The crispy skin and soft juicy meat on the inside are our favourites! Chicken is delicious served with any side dish or sliced and served on a salad. Do you enjoy food planning and preparation on weekends? Why don't you try something new and put some chicken on the barby, as Australians call it, and grill all your meat for the week?
Just a reminder that chicken should be cooked to 165 degrees Fahrenheit inside.
Oink, Oink, Oink! Now it's time to tackle the pig! The pig, like beef, has a variety of meat pieces to pick from, but pork chops are the most popular cut to grill! Kids adore it when we grill these, partially because pork chops are something you can start grilling in the spring.
Pork is a delicious piece of meat, but don't cook it for too long or it will get tough. It's utilised in practically every cuisine on the planet, from here to there. We'd love to hear about some of your favourite pork dishes from your family! Leave a comment in the box below!
Fish comes in last on our list of the greatest foods to grill. You can either set the fish directly on the grill grates or in a foil pack, depending on the sort of fish you're using. Remember that if the fish is wet, it will steam rather than sear. So make sure your fish is completely dry before wrapping it in foil or grilling it. Tuna, halibut, and swordfish, for example, have a meatier feel, similar to a pork chop. Others, such as flounder, sole, and tilapia, have a milder flavour. There are numerous options and flavours to select from. Squeeze a touch of lemon on top of your fish right after it comes off the grill to give it a new flavour!
For a complete dinner, serve with rice, vegetables, and a salad.
How about a grilled turkey? Yes, absolutely! Turkey breast cutlets are available all year at your local grocery store's meat counter. Turkey breast cutlets are typically thinly sliced (approximately 1/2-3/4 inch thick), allowing them to cook rapidly on the grill. Because turkey breast has a low fat content, overcooking the cutlets might result in them becoming dry and harsh.
Marinating the turkey breast before grilling helps to maintain some of the moisture in the meat. Of course, utilising a meat thermometer will assist you in getting it perfectly cooked. Try this Grilled Orange-Marinated Turkey Breast by picking up some turkey breast cutlets the next time you're at the grocery store.
