It’s Grilling Season!

One of the guys that I used to work with showed me how he liked to prepare meat for grilling.  He was the master.  Whenever there was a customer appreciation or employee meal, it was always a treat because he’d grill up steaks or pork chops.  Yummy!

Recipe/How to do it –

Lay whatever meat you want to grill out on a flat surface.  I use a cookie sheet.  Put a couple dashes of soy sauce on, rub into the meat.  Sprinkle a couple shakes of lemon pepper, seasoning salt, and garlic powder – rub in.  Turn the meat and repeat – soy sauce, lemon pepper, seasoning salt, and garlic powder – rub each into the meat.

Raw pork – rubbing in the seasonings – soy sauce, lemon pepper, seasoning salt, and garlic powder

Fresh off the grill – Pork Chops!

Make sure to cook your meat to the proper internal temperature.  The USDA recommends beef steaks and pork chops to be cooked to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees.

To stretch our food dollar, usually I’ll wait until pork loin goes on sale, and then I’ll take the whole loin back to the meat counter and have it sliced in loin chops.  I usually have them cut 1” thick.  Then when I get home, I will package the bulk chops into freezer bags.  A few weeks ago I was able to get loin roast for about $1.50/lb compared to the pork chops yesterday that were priced at $2.59/lb.

Enjoy the grilling season!
