Depending on where you live, it’s either just becoming grilling season, or it is grilling season. Either way, most of us can benefit from some grilling tips. Get started by cleaning your grill real good – 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 a gas, electric or charcoal grill, you should just get cooking. By the way, I discovered the joys of charcoal a couple of years ago and now I 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 olive 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.
