Summer Grilling: Spiducci




We love grilling and barbecuing in the summer-and in other seasons too, for that matter- and the more we grill, or barbecue, the more we discover different methods of grilling and smoking, and the more we are motivated to seek out new recipes and explore and sample different culinary masterpieces that we can add to our repertoire.

Behold the Miami Rib

My grill-head friends have no problem with chicken, fish or chops done on or in the stove, but steak gives them pause.

According to them, my father, uncles and grandfathers all included – steak has to be grilled, no matter what.

I disagree.

With the right pan and the right cut, a pan-seared steak can be amazing. So listen up. Here’s how you do the perfect, no fuss, steak in a pan. Continue »
