‘Tis the season for grilling. Whether with charcoal, gas, or wood, restaurant operators are firing up their grills for summertime cookin’. Are you prepared for the seasonal demand of seared meats, smoked cheeses, and grilled vegetables? With 79% of restaurants featuring grilled entrees and nearly 50% headlining smoked dishes1, these backyard favorites are a menu must-have.
Here are a few simple tips for bringing the cookout indoors:
Select steaks that are 1½ inches thick for optimal searing
Infuse meats and vegetables with flavor by marinating overnight
Bring thick cuts of meat to room temperature before grilling
Allow the pan or grill pan to reach a scorching temperature before grilling 2 minutes on each side. Then, transfer to a 400°F oven until cooked through.
Heinz can help you achieve the authentic essence of outdoor grilling with Lea & Perrins® Worcestershire Sauce. This chef favorite offers bold flavor and versatility, doubling as a ready-to-use marinade and tabletop burger and steak dipping sauce.
Right on trend is Graffiti Junktion, the American Burger Bar, which recently introduced the Lea & Perrins Steakhouse Burger to their menu.
