Seven Easy Barbecue Recipes

Jun 17th, 2016

The official start of summer is just days away, but barbecue season is well underway across most of the country. The next time you want to impress at a cookout but don’t want to prepare anything too elaborate, try one of these simple barbecue recipes.

Grilled Shrimp with Garlic

A barbecue staple in parts of coastal Mexico, this grilled delight is a real treat for most of us in the States. From start to finish, Bobbly Flay’s recipe from The Food Network takes just 15 minutes to prepare and grill. You’ll need to pick up some wooden skewers if you don’t already have them.

Chipotle-Rubbed Steak with Lime Butter

Garlic, lime, cumin, and chipotle powder give rib-eye steaks a flavorful south-of-the-border influence in this Food & Wine recipe, requiring just 30 minutes to prepare and grill. Give it a try the next time you’re grilling for only a handful of people.

Chicken Satay

Follow this recipe to make a tasty east Asian snack at your next barbecue. The sauce is easier to make than most satays and involves only a little chopping and dicing. Prep and cook time combined is just 30 minutes.

Portobello and Goat Cheese Pitas

Vegetarians and meat lovers delight in the complex flavor of goat cheese spread over warm grilled veggies. Alison Lewis’ recipe from Cooking Light takes just 15 minutes and can be prepared on the grill or a pan in your apartment. As long as your kitchen is stocked with the essentials, the only ingredients you might have to pick up are pitas, goat cheese, and portobello mushrooms.

Souvlaki Kebabs

Grill savory Greek-style kebabs at your apartment in 20 minutes with this Martha Stewart recipe. You can use lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, or tofu.

Korean Barbecue Burgers

The growing popularity of Korean food has given way to a rise in Korean-style barbecue at cookouts. But Korean burgers are still an unexpected treat for many. August Weinstein’s Cooking Light recipe is a good one to start with, easy-to-follow, and requires just a bit of prep and less than ten minutes of grill time per batch of burgers.

Chicken and Zucchini Yakitori

Bring a taste of Japan to your next cookout with this yakitori recipe. Once they’ve marinated, the skewers take just five or six minutes to grill.

Classic burgers and dogs are perfect for some cookouts. But deviating from the norm can be nice when you’re grilling for a smaller group or want your cuisine to leave an impression. If that’s the case, hopefully, these recipes have inspired you.
