What Are You Grilling This Season?
We asked our experts what they’re looking forward to grilling this season…
Koen Vermeylen, Raley’s Meat & Seafood Expert
We have a new beef cut at Raley’s called the Beef Bistro Filet. It’s the second most tender and delicious piece of beef, rivaling the tenderloin. It’s great on the grill, it cooks quickly and it’s tender and juicy. Cook it rare to medium – it’s the best-tasting piece of meat I’ve ever eaten!
Anthony Dyer, Raley’s Beer Expert
One of the first things I grill every summer is corn on the cob in the husk. It’s so simple and gives the corn just a little something extra. Try pairing it with Lagunitas Pils for a great summer combo!
Emmie Satrazemis, Raley’s Wellness Evangelist
If you haven’t tried grilled peaches, you’re missing out! I love substituting grilled peaches for the tomato in my caprese salad along with whole milk mozzarella and fresh basil. It makes a sweet twist on an old favorite. I add a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar on top for even more flavor. Yum!
Patty Mastracco, Raley’s Food Editor
I’m looking forward to figuring out how to get good wood smoke on my gas grill. It’s easy on a charcoal grill, but I love the convenience of gas. I also want to try grilling unexpected things like bruschetta with a bit of melted smoked mozzarella on top, or try grilled vegetable salads.
Dave Fluitt, Raley’s Pharmacy Supervisor
I’ll be smoking some Raley’s free range organic chickens on my new Traeger pellet grill this weekend. Basically I flip two switches on this grill and I’m a barbecue hero. Life is good!
