Tips for Grilling Well to Eat Well

My husband is the “Grill Master”. However, I don’t always want to wait for him to whip up something yummy on the grill. I use these tips for Grilling Well to Eat Well.

Instead, I want to master grilling myself, so I can eat well, even when he’s not home.

For the people who have yet to master the grill, these tips are for you.

You don’t have to Burn Everything

It took me a while to realize that grilling doesn’t mean burning.

When I grill our favorite food, Canadian Turkey, I make sure I use indirect heat.

This means that you don’t sear the food with the heat on blast.

You turn down the heat and let it cook slow. Cooking meat slow will give you a tender flavor you’ll love.

Try Sizzling to get that Big Flavor

When cooking up some Canadian Turkey, I’m not afraid to do a little sizzling.

Sizzling comes down to adding a little BBQ sauce and letting it cook onto the meat.

Of course, you can also smoke your meat to get that big, delicious flavor you long for.

Preheating the Grill is a Smart Idea

Don’t just plop the meat on the grill. Light the grill and let it heat up for a bit.

If the grill is hot enough, the food won’t stick to it either. Your food will cook better if you’re patient and let the grill heat up.

Think of it as preheating the oven, it just helps your food turn out way better.

Don’t be afraid to Marinade your Meat

If you’re looking for a new way to grill, try marinating your meat first.

When you marinade food, it is infusing flavors, that you can’t experience any other way.

Using your favorite marinade with Canadian Turkey is the way to go.

Get Acquainted with Canadian Turkey

If you’re not familiar with Canadian Turkey, let’s get acquainted.

Canadian Turkey is delicious, juicy, and something that’s needed at BBQ’s this summer. There are also a variety of cuts that you can choose from.

  • Turkey breast roast
  • Turkey thigh roast,
  • Drumsticks
  • Whole turkey or half a turkey

Is your mouth watering yet? Mine is! Using these kinds of meats, anyone can become a grill master.

Canadian Turkey truly is the best choice for those summer BBQs. I like to keep Canadian Turkey in the fridge and freezer.

For sides, I love to use salads, pasta, veggies, and fruit. We’ve also included an awesome recipe for you to try!

These Bacon Wrapped Turkey Medallions are amazing. Let’s not forget the side of Peach Salsa, also equally mouth-watering.

BBQ Bacon Wrapped Turkey Medallions with Grilled Peach Salsa Recipe

Serves: 4-6 people

Prep time: 20 mins

Cook time: 30 mins

Ingredients:

2 lbs Canadian turkey breast, boneless

4-6 slices of bacon

2 ½ tsp seasoning rub

For Rub:

Use ½ tsp garlic powder

Sprinkle ½ tsp dried oregano

Add ½ tsp sweet paprika

Try ½ tsp dried rosemary

And ½ tsp dried thyme

For Salsa:

1 large firm peach

1 red pepper

½ small red onion

4 leaves basil

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Cut the turkey breast into 2-inch steaks.
  2. Wrap each steak with one slice of bacon. Secure with a skewer through to both sides of the bacon wrapped steak.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Combine the spices to make the seasoning rub. Rub each steak generously on both sides.  
  5. Grill steaks over low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes per side until meat is cooked through and registers 165°F (74°C) on a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat. (Heat setting and cook time will depend on the power of your BBQ.)
  6. While steaks are cooking, make the salsa. Cut the peach in half and remove the pit.  Grill over high heat until the peach is slightly charred but still firm, 2-4 mins.  Remove from heat and dice.
  7. Dice the red pepper and onion. Tear the basil into small pieces.
  8. Combine the peach, onion, red pepper and basil. Dress with olive oil and vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Serve alongside the turkey steaks.

Use turkey bacon for a lighter, healthier version of this recipe.
