Depending on where you live, it’s either just becoming grilling season, or it is grilling season. And either way, most of us can benefit from some tips. So start with a good cleaning – inside, outside and all around. You know how your car seems to drive better when it’s clean? Well the same applies to grills – or at least in my mind it does.
And then whether you use gas, electric or charcoal, you should just get cooking. BTW, I discovered the joys of charcoal a couple of years ago and now can’t stop. Finally, to jump start your cooking a bit, I put one of my favorite, quick appetizers in the video – Grilled Teriyaki Meatballs.
I like to use frozen small meatballs. They’re about 1/2 ounce each – if you make the ‘OK’ sign with your thumb and forefinger, they’re about the size that would fit in that circle.
One pound fully cooked meatballs (about 32), defrosted
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
1/4 cup finely chopped green onions
- Heat grill to medium/high.
- Toss meatballs with oil.
- Grill until fully warmed through, starting to brown with grill markings.
- Baste well with teriyaki sauce.
- Remove from grill, skewer and top with green onion and sesame seeds.
