roasting grillBackyard barbecue parties are known for delicious grilled dishes; groovy music and you guessed it right — beer. While some people are into wine, we can’t deny the fact that there are some of us who prefer beer more when it comes to barbecues. Just imagine washing down a piece of your char-grilled steak or pork chop with an ice-cold bottle of your favorite draft. That’s quite heavenly! So if you’re looking for delicious grilled dishes to pair with your booze, check out our suggestions for this week!


1. Smoky Grilled Pork Chops


Combine salt, black pepper, onion, garlic powder, paprika and Worcestershire sauce in a bowl. Mix it thoroughly to evenly distribute the flavors. Sprinkle the mixture on your pork chops and make sure to massage them to let the ingredients sink in. Set aside for approximately 10 minutes. Grill for about 12 minutes on each side until the thermometer displays 145 degrees Fahrenheit.


2. Beef Sate


Cut 1 ½ pounds of rib eye steak into cubes measuring about half an inch thick each. In a bowl, combine coriander, cumin, turmeric, brown sugar, pepper, fish sauce, oil and soy sauce. Put the beef cubes in the mixture and stir to coat. Place the marinated beef cubes inside the fridge and leave it there for at least 2 hours. Drain the beef cubes and discard the marinade. Thread the cubes in skewers and place in the fridge until the grill is ready. Grill the beef sates until they’re cooked (approximately 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium rare).


3. Ultimate Chicken Barbecue


Make a brine solution out of salt, sugar, thyme, garlic and water. Transfer it to a re-sealable plastic bag and then put the chicken in. Refrigerate for about two hours to allow the brine to penetrate the meat. For the sauce, get some thyme and use it to wrap the bacon. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a saucepan and then add the thyme. Let it cook for about 3 minutes to get the fat out of the bacon. Add some garlic and onion. Add the ketchup, brown sugar, wine vinegar, molasses, cumin, mustard, paprika and black pepper. Cook the mixture slowly for about 20 minutes. Grill the marinated chicken for about 15 minutes while occasionally coating the meat with the sauce.


4. Grilled Shrimp With Garlic and Herbs


Mix paprika, fresh garlic, fresh lemon juice, Italian seasoning, black pepper, olive oil and basil in a bowl. Stir thoroughly and transfer to a bag. Put large, deveined shrimps in the bag and leave in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes on each side.


5. Sesame Steaks


Combine soy sauce, vegetable oil, brown sugar, onion powder, sesame seeds, lemon juice and ground ginger. Stir the ingredients together and add the steaks to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for about 4 hours. After marinating, drain the meat and discard the mixture. Grill for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until the steaks reach your desired temperature.
