Grilled Beef Recipes

Whether burger, steak, or kebab, beef's great on the grill.

Grilled Sirloin Skewers with Peaches and Peppers

Grilled Sirloin Skewers with Peaches and Peppers

Kebabs are great for entertaining because they’re as easy to serve as they are to prepare. If you’re expecting vegetarians, cook the meat and vegetables on separate skewers, so guests who don’t want meat can pick up a kebab of vegetables. If your guests assemble their own skewers, place the meat and vegetables in separate bowls.

Turn the steaks only once as you cook them. The more time they’re in direct contact with the grill, the better. And speaking of better, nothing is better with a grilled steak than sweet, grilled corn-on-the cob. Coat fresh ears of corn with butter-flavored cooking spray; place the corn on the grill rack, and grill over direct heat, covered, 15 to 20 minutes or until the corn is tender, turning occasionally.

Adobo Flank Steak with Summer Corn-and-Tomato Relish

Adobo Flank Steak with Summer Corn-and-Tomato Relish

Sherry vinegar, with its sour-sweet flavor and deep notes of oak, is the secret ingredient in the relish. The vinegar marries and extends the flavors of the roasted corn and peppers and acidic tomatoes creating a relish that tames the spicy heat of the flank steak. Sherry vinegar is also delicious on grilled vegetable salads, especially those featuring zucchini, bell peppers, and chiles.

Hoisin sauce is thick, sweet, and spicy. It’s most commonly used as a dipping sauce for a variety of Chinese dishes. Brushing the grilled sirloin with the hoisin mixture gives your meat added flavor.

Coffee-Rubbed Texas-Style Brisket

With larger cuts like pork shoulder or brisket that need to smoke for hours, maintaining an even temperature is critical to prevent overcooking or drying out your meat. On a gas grill, you can regulate temperature easily via the burners and monitor it from the built-in thermometer in the lid. But charcoal grills require a little more finesse.

Tuscan-Style New York Strip with Arugula-Artichoke Salad

Based on the classic bistecca Fiorentina--grilled porterhouse--this dish uses sirloin strip steaks, which are leaner (and, because they're boneless, a little easier to grill) than porterhouse. Lemon juice is a traditional accent in the dish, meant to cut the richness of the meat. Use a mandoline to slice the artichokes thinly and evenly.
