Sunday is a great day to break out the grill and do some q’ing. Today while out doing some grocery shopping I saw some pork steaks that I thought would be great to use for a quick marinade and the grill. I also finally got a chance to get a bag of the Kingsford Competition Briquets which I had been waiting to do. These are designed to burn hot and be ready faster. They can be used for a variety of different heating styles as well. I was more excited about getting a bag of this than anything else. Well I gave my pork a good rub down of my dry rub and a good coating of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I let them sit for about an hour and then got them cooking away. While they were cooking I gave both sides a decent coating of Italian Dressing and let them finish. I thought they came out great and the family enjoyed them, to the left is a photo of the finished product.
These competition briquets were really cooking and so I decided to also throw on a skirt steak. Ideally, I would have let it marinate longer, but in this instance I did not have the time since I wanted to get it on these coals. I gave it a good rub of seasoning and a coat of EVOO and got it on the heat. Gave both sides a good searing and then moved it off the heat some to finish cooking. It finished up nice and tender and went well with a salad and some mac n cheese as did the pork. Pics of the skirt are below and that was another bit of Sunday Funday!
