I hope you are looking forward to a great Memorial Day Weekend! I know I am. Here’s the menu I’ll be grilling up… Churrasco Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, Drunken Shrimp Fajitas, my infamous Fresh Start Market Black Beans, Cumin and Lime Marinated Summer Squash and to top it all off a Grilled Pineapple Sundae with Chocolate Rum Sauce! Ice down some Pale Ales and have a great weekend!
Chimichurri does double-duty as both a marinade and a finishing sauce. I made it with beef tenderloin that I “roll-cut (unrolled the meat with a sharp knife like a unrolling a roll of paper towels!). If that seems too daunting, substitute skirt steak and follow the directions for marinating and grilling.
Tequila and frozen limeade concentrate… is there anything more to say?!
These black beans were a hit when I had my store in Dallas, TX 🙂
Zucchini, crookneck, yellow squash… all good! This is also a great all-purpose marinade… soak some chicken breasts in this vinaigrette for a few hours, grill ’em up and BAM!
I have gotten a lot of mileage from this recipe over the years and you’ll see why. Grilling the pineapple condenses and caramelizes the sugars, plus a little char and smokiness from the grill… (how do you spell that sound that Homer Simpson makes??)
Have a safe and fun weekend!
Cheers and Happy Grilling!
