Copycat El Pollo Loco Chicken, Attempt 1

Copycat El Pollo Loco Chicken, Attempt 1

This recipe accompanies this video – https://youtu.be/L4QQjc8Vny0 In this video, I tried to copy our favorite meal from El Pollo Loco. It’s pretty close but not quite there yet. It needs more of a kick and while I think starting it in the Instant Pot […]

Barbecue Short Ribs

Barbecue Short Ribs

Usually, when I make ribs, I roast them in the oven all afternoon. I have no yet attempted to use my grill as a smoker and I wasn’t feeling into learning how to do it on a Wednesday afternoon, so I decided to roast them […]

Barbecue Chicken Souvlaki

Barbecue Chicken Souvlaki

Tonight’s dinner has been my favorite so far, and actually the second time I’ve made it this summer but the first time I’ve made it since Memorial Day when we started this. I grew up in Greek restaurant kitchens, so this meal was a staple […]

Top Sirloin with Mushrooms & Onions

Top Sirloin with Mushrooms & Onions

Day 9 and yes, this is the second time I’ve grilled a top round sirloin. It’s my husband’s favorite and while he is a good sport when it comes to my ridiculous cooking experiments, I need to feed him dinners I know he loves in […]

Barbecue Dad’s Hamburgers, 2.0

Barbecue Dad’s Hamburgers, 2.0

The funny thing about sharing my father’s recipes on this blog is that most of the time it’s kind of a sham. Hear me out. When I share a recipe from my father that I remember making with him or that I have called him […]

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

I know better, I really do. Gyros are made with lamb, not beef. I know people make them with beef, but usually I would never be a part of such a travesty. However, I had already started preparing the sirloin, which was actually sliced very […]

Rosemary Chicken

Rosemary Chicken

Usually, when I roast chicken legs or thighs, I do it in my big roasting pan with root veggies, some oil and poultry seasoning and a generous heap of rosemary. Lately, I’ve been growing rosemary on my kitchen counter and it smells so good I […]

Rib Eye with Herbed Butter

Rib Eye with Herbed Butter

I didn’t fire up the grill on day 3 until almost 9pm because time flies at my bestie’s house. 😉 We didn’t let that get in the way of the 100 Days of Barbecue though! I had already been marinating the steaks all day, so […]
