Expert Grilling Tips For The Perfect Valentine’s Day Dinner
We’ve all heard of the old saying that food is the way to your valentine’s heart, and the grill masters at Harding The Fireplace couldn’t agree more! When cooking a romantic dinner for the apple of your eye, you want to put your best foot forward; this is why we’ve put together a few of our best expert grilling tips to make your Valentine’s Day meal feel like a professional chef made it!
Grill On A High Heat
While some home cooks can feel intimidated by cooking on high heat, one of the best grilling tips for making your food taste like an expert made it is to turn the heat up on your grill! By working on high heat, you can sear your steaks and keep the flavour in your vegetables!
Prepare In Advance
When it comes to having a smooth grilling process, one of our most simple expert tips is to prepare everything in advance. Cut your vegetables, marinate your meats, and do any non-grilling preparation before you heat your grill. This way you’re making cooking a more organized experience and setting yourself up for success.
Use Lots Of Butter, Garlic, And Salt
An old trick to getting your food to taste extra good is to use simple but well-loved ingredients generously. Vegetables, potatoes, and meats are often elevated by the presence of everyday ingredients like butter, garlic, salt, and pepper. Don’t skimp on these ingredients because professional chefs sure don’t.
Use Fresh Ingredients
A great way to show your date that you put a lot of time and effort into their Valentine’s Day dinner is to take the extra step in picking fresh ingredients. If you have a farmer’s market nearby, it’s a great idea to take advantage of fresh local produce and meats, however, going to the grocery store and buying fresh, not frozen ingredients will make a world of difference for your meal.
Use The Best Quality Equipment Possible
One of the most universal of our expert tips for grilling the perfect Valentine’s Day meal is to follow in the expert’s footsteps and invest in high-quality equipment. If your grill doesn’t heat evenly, doesn’t get hot enough, or is malfunctioning it’s very difficult to cook the perfect meal. By investing in a quality grill, you’re ensuring that you get the best opportunity to cook hot, even, and delicious foods.
