Grilling in the Cold

We had some steaks in the freezer and a new bag of hardwood charcoal. For a man who's been deprived of grilling for most of his life this meant that, despite the below-freezing temperatures we've been having, SP wanted to grill tonight.

He's become quite good at it, too. The steaks:


... had a great char on the outside and a really nice smokey flavor but were still cooked medium-rare the way we like them. I made the couscous with some chopped scallion, chicken broth, a dab of butter and salt. When SP was prepping the beans they looked a little past their prime so he gave them a squirt of lemon juice to perk them up. Then I steamed them and served them with some butter, salt and pepper. The citrus bath gave them a nice tang and they were so good I think I'll prepare them that way from now on.
Pin It!
