  1. Demo Kitchen Recipe: Flank Steak Salad with Red Zinfandel Vinaigrette

    Demo Kitchen Recipe: Flank Steak Salad with Red Zinfandel Vinaigrette

    The Flank Steak Salad is definitely a hearty meal, and a delightfully simple one to prepare. Just bear in mind that salting is essential to the recipe. Salting and seasoning the steak 30 minutes prior to grilling ensures that the meat absorbs the flavorful seasoning and remains juicy when served. And salting the vinaigrette intensifies the fruit notes of the red zin as well as softens the tangy cut of the dressing. What's more, the salt in the vinaigrette dials down bitter notes, in turn enhancing the mild and crunchy savor of the baby greens.

    Demo Kitchen Recipe: Grill  Smoked Beef Brisket

    The key to smoky nirvana is to keep the following in mind: Good Things Come to Those Who Wait! Seasoning the night before gives the cut enough time to absorb the seasoning. Permitting the brisket to come to room temperature encourages a more even smoking. And the indirect heat involved in smoking itself renders the collagen woven within the cut, transforming what was rough and tough into the tender and luxuriant wonder that meat lovers crave.

    Demo Kitchen Recipe: Burgers and Tomato Jam

    Nothing says summer grilling more than burgers! Keep the following three tips (repeated in the directions below) in mind to ensure that your burgers are top notch. (1) Do NOT salt beef patties until moments before they hit your preheated gas grill or white hot charcoal grill. Salt dissolves muscle proteins, turning what would have been moist and tender burgers into something fragile and dry. (2) Decide what temperature each beef patty will be and form it accordingly with the appropriate thickness (see step three below in the instructions). Otherwise, a slow cooked, well-done, 3/4" patty will taste leathery and unappealing. (3) Keep a squeeze water bottle ready at hand to douse any flare ups.
