Hosting a weekend BBQ doesn't have to be a pressure cooker. Here are five quick tips that are packed with flavor when you're short on time.
1) Baste, not waste.
When it's time to baste the meat, cut an orange or lemon in half. Dip the juicy part of the fruit into your marinade, then rub it directly onto the meat. Easy ... and it gives the beef a tasty twist.
2) Beer the beef!
Add a tablespoon of beer to your marinade to give it just the right kick. Bonus: It keeps the meat extra moist and tender.
3) Stop the sticking!
Tired of food always getting stuck to the grill? Before throwing the meat on, first brush it with a little vegetable or olive oil, and the sticky situation will be gone.
4) No-fuss husking.
Who has time to husk corn? With our tip, you do! With the husk still on, cut off both ends of the corn, roll it on your countertop and watch the husk come right off!
5) Teatime and "me" time.
Tired of plain iced tea? When making a pitcher for your BBQ, grab a frozen can of concentrate and stir in a couple of scoops. Orange juice, lemonade and strawberry are some great-tasting choices!
