The weather was outrageous today! Sunny skies, warm temperatures and the smell of cheese steaks in the air on South Street.
I love living in the city so much during the summer. There is only one thing about Summer living in the City that bums me out. No grilling when you live in a second floor walk up.
There is nothing quite like the taste of a grill. Although I haven’t managed to find a perfect substitution, I have stumbled upon something that works for me.
So whats the secret?
Three things actually: Liquid Smoke, Worcestershire Pepper, and a Grill Frying pan!
Armed with this arsenal … its almost like being in the country over an open fire pit … almost.
Liquid Smoke used to scare me because I thought it was so artificial, but after doing some research and reading the labels … its actually just fine. Worcestershire pepper is something Ive been using for awhile. The Grill Pan? Well when its super hot … it can create a little magic.
So find your favorite marinade .. add the Worcestershire pepper and Liquid Smoke (go light with this the first time), fire up the grill pan and put your exhaust fan on high. Open the window and pretend its the burbs.
This is the final result:
Here is some mood music for you too … The 1st edition of Chill and Grill from HipHopDx.com, Maad Management, and DJ NoPhrillz … perfect grillin music!
