Popular Grilling Recipes

Yes, the grill is a summertime icon, but a barbecue is more than an excuse for a backyard get-together. Grilling gives all types of food - from veggies to chicken to pork - a flavorful char and addictive smoky taste. Nothing else in your cooking arsenal can give you the same flavors (sorry, not even your stovetop grill pan), and it's worth finding the best grilling recipes to take advantage of it. Of course hamburgers and chicken are a no-brainer, but branch out and try grilled pizza (the charred crust is amazing), grilled fruit (peaches are sublime), or even grilled paella. What type of grill should you choose? Depends on what your objective is. Gas grills give you more control - temperatures can be quickly adjusted, warming racks can be employed - but charcoal gives food a pronounced smokiness that can't be duplicated.

Barbecued Beef Short Ribs

With only 6 ingredients and less than 300 calories per serving, these savory short ribs are both simple and succulent. A vibrant gremolata (a type of herb condiment) of lemon peel, cilantro and sweet peppers provides a lovely, bright contrast to the rich, smoky beef. When buying sweet peppers, choose that are firm, heavy for their size, and have shiny, vibrantly-colored skin.
