Grilling: Steaks, Baked Taters & ‘ShroomsJuly 13, 2013 at 6:55 pm | Posted in Baked Potatoes, Dinner, Grilling, Main Dish, Mushrooms, Ron's Own Creation, Steak | 2 Comments
Another grilling adventure! Tonight it was steaks, baked taters and mushrooms. The last time I made baked potatoes on the grill, the skins burnt. So tonight, I tried something different, thanks to Better Homes & Gardens! I purchased their “GRILL IT!” magazine today and it had an ingenious idea! When you need to grill some foods on DIRECT heat and some on INDIRECT heat, all you have to do is start your fire and when you’re ready to throw the food on, arrange your charcoal into a CIRCLE around the grill and leave the center clear. The center is your INDIRECT heated area while the hot charcoal is the DIRECT heat.
Wow! Why didn’t I think of that? I prepared the potatoes Ron’s way: scrub them, give them a bath in egg white and roll them in Kosher salt. I put them in the center of the grill – INDIRECT heat for about an hour. Ta-da! They turned out beautifully, didn’t they?Then, I got my mushrooms ready by slicing them up, spraying them with olive oil, then sprinkling garlic powder and salt over them. They got to cook in the INDIRECT heat of the grill and the steaks went on the DIRECT heat. I shuffled the coals around once I took the potatoes off, so that the steaks would all cook and be finished together.I must apologize for the lack of pictures after this…everything was so delicious that I just didn’t have time to CLICK any pictures!
Ah, steak! My teen said he could live on steak every day. He probably could 🙂
