Marinated Bavette Steak

Bavette steak is what we refer to as flank steak. As always, with this cut of meat, it is wholly improved with a good, long marinade. In this version, sweet and savory work together to create a lovely flavor and tender steak. The addition of lemon juice rubbed on the steak just before cooking lends a slight citrus note and a wonderful freshness. Read more

Chicken Skewers with Tzatziki

Light and lively with flavor, these little morsels are delicious and so tender. Grill them outside if the weather is fine, or use a griddle indoors if not. The chicken benefits from a long marinade, but if you’re short on time, 30 minutes will still infuse a lovely, lemony flavor perfumed with fresh oregano. Read more

Meatball Kebabs

Meatballs on the grill — how fun! And not only novel, but delicious as well: the combination of spices and fresh herbs is wonderful in these savory morsels. Lemon halves are grilled alongside to squeeze over when serving and a lovely yogurt-tahini sauce tops it all off. The meatballs and the sauce can be made up to a day ahead for effortless entertaining. Read more

Quick Tomato Relish

Here’s a versatile recipe to have on hand as tomato season starts to ramp up! GoodFood suggests serving this relish alongside simply prepared chicken or fish, and it is wonderful for that, but we’ve come up with another idea: spread the relish over a piece of naan bread, top with cheeses (we like to use shredded mozzarella, grated Parmesan, and pearl mozzarella), and cook on a hot grill until the naan is crisped and the cheeses are melty. Delicious! Read more
