Grill Night!

Last weekend, finally cleaned off the back patio, so I can get to my grill again.  Summer in San Diego, most meals are on the grill, so I don't have to heat up the kitchen.  Monday was the first grill session, and was grilled top sirloin with berra berra - cumin butter, grilled sweet corn, and spicy grilled potato wedges. 

Grilled the steaks medium rare.  I grill the corn in the husks, it prevents them from getting too charred.  The compound butter was 1/2 stick of butter, 1/2 teaspoon each cumin and berra berra (berra berra is a hot Ethiopian spice mix, you could substitute chilli powder), and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt.

Spicy Grilled Potato Wedges

3 medium russet potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 Tblsp. each garlic powder, onion powder, paprika
1/2 Tblsp. kosher salt

Wash potatoes.  Cut in half, then into 1/4 inch wide slices.  Place in bowl with oil, spices, and salt.  Toss to evenly coat. Grill on both sides until brown and crisp.

This is one of my favorite replacements for french fries.

Happy eating!
