During the warmer spring months, you’ll likely be tempted to start grilling many of your foods outdoors. There are certain foods that are ideal for spring cookouts, and knowing how to grill them correctly can make each meal more enjoyable.
These food suggestions and grilling tips can help make all your spring outdoor cookouts successful.
Grilling corn can help give it a richer taste, and you can serve it with many of your meals or eat it as a wholesome snack. Grilling your corn at a high temperature over a direct heat is the best way to prepare it. The corn should cook for 15 to 20 minutes over the grill while you turn each cob with tongs periodically so that everything cooks evenly.
Whether you prefer a porterhouse, T-bone or ribeye steak, grilling it outdoors can provide you with the perfect springtime meal. You’ll want to let your steak sit out at room temperature 20 to 30 minutes before grilling it so that the meat will cook faster and more evenly. Using a meat thermometer to check your steak’s temperature while you’re grilling it can help you know when the steak is ready to eat.
Mushrooms make the perfect toppings for steaks, salads and other foods, and grilling your mushrooms can be a great way to prepare them. Choosing larger mushrooms may be best since mushrooms tend to lose their size when they’re grilled. You can also add seasoning to your mushrooms to make them even more appetizing.
Even eggplant can be grilled if you want to enjoy a healthy outdoor snack or meal. You can cut your eggplant into thick slices for easier grilling. To keep your eggplant slices from sticking to the grill, apply a coat of olive oil to them. Your slices will take about eight to ten minutes to cook, but a whole eggplant will usually require 20 to 30 minutes of grilling time if you prefer to eat it whole.
