Here’s an overview of what we covered, and what we didn’t have time to share, as well as some videos and links to some of my favorite (and delicious) ways to put these tips into practice!

Near Room Temp Meat

In order to achieve the best results in your BBQ and grilling, you will want your meat to be near room temperature when cooking begins. You want your meat to cook evenly from edge to center. Therefore, the closer it is to its final eating temperature, the more evenly it will cook. You can increase the rate at which it warms by placing it on a highly conductive metal, like aluminum (this is also a great way to speed up the thawing process for frozen foods.

Resting

See the article at this link to learn how and why resting meat before cutting can make or break your meal!

Cleaning

Clean your grill while it’s still HOT. Burn any remaining crud to carbon, brush with s stuff metal grill-brush. Cool until warm to the touch, and brush lightly with a high-heat oil, like Grape-seed.

Chimney Steaks

My personal favorite way to quick-grill a steak for maximum flavor and tenderness.

Now, get out there and grill!

Chef Perry on AM Northwest May 2nd!

Spatula Final
Hey Peeps,
 
Just a heads up, I’ll be doing a very special segment on AM Northwest this Wednesday (May 2nd, 9:00 am pst), which I’m calling:
 
Chef Perry’s “Spatula City” Episode!
 
(If you’re too young to get that reference, you can think of it as, “The One with all the Spatulas.”
 
(If you’re too young for THAT reference…shut up.) 😉
 
Anyway…
 
If you’ve ever wondered why there are 27 zillion different kinds of spatulas, and what they’re intended for…
 
If you’ve experienced the embarrassment and ridicule of being seen using the WRONG spatula…
 
If you have drawers of spatulas that you hide from you family, your friends, and your Pastor, and you just CAN’T stop buying more…
 
Be sure to tune in!
 
😉

Nutella Mug BrowniesOne-Minute Nutella Mug Brownies

  • ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon Nutella
  • 1 Tbsp milk chocolate chips
  • 1 large egg, gently whisked
  • 2 Tbs all purpose flour, rounded
  • 2 Tbs homemade whipped cream (see guide)

Adapted from the recipe by Gemma Stafford

In a large microwavable mug add the Nutella and egg and whisk together.

Add flour and mix until you have a smooth batter. Then mix in the chocolate chips.

Microwave for roughly 45 seconds – 1 minute. (Microwave timing might vary). Keep a close eye on your mug while in the microwave so it doesn’t overflow or overcook.

Check your brownie at 40 seconds, if it feels firm to the touch it is done, proceed in 10 second increments if it is not done. When the brownie is set and firm on top it is done. Let the brownie cool and minutes before serving

Serve with some homemade whipped cream, or vanilla bean ice-cream, while it’s still warm. (Gemma cooked for 1 minute in her recipe)
