Labor Day Weekend has come and gone and it’s easy to get dejected about the end of summer season. However, grilling season is just getting good! If you’re like the majority of people who only grill burgers and dogs during the summer, it’s time to change it up. As the leaves fall in your backyard, the prices of beef will be dropping as well.
According to the Chicago Tribune, “this year is expected to be the largest commercial beef production year since 2011.” It’s a simple case of supply and demand. With more beef out there, consumers will benefit from competitive pricing. Let’s take a look at some of the best meat dishes for fall that will help you put off putting on your gas grill covers for the winter season.
BLT Burgers – We poked fun at grilling enthusiasts who only make burgers and dogs, but there is no denying how delicious a good burger can be! This fall make the switch to 90% lean ground beef and ditch the bun. By weaving four bacon pieces together, you can create a bacon bun that will have you saying good bye to carbs and hello to the flavor.
Grilled Cheesesteak Packs – Ever consider making Philly cheesesteaks on your grill that aren’t terrible for you? Probably not – but you can. A nice lean flank steak takes center stage in this dish. You can slice steak to desired thinness and mix it with peppers, garlic, onions and some salt and pepper in a bowl. From there you move the mixture to some tin foil and wrap them up for your grill. After about ten minutes on the grill, unwrap them to throw on your cheese of choice. We recommend provolone. Cover them up for two minutes and you have a healthy cheesesteak dish that your whole family will love.
Sirloin Steak Skewers – When it comes to affordable meats that offer great taste and low-fat content, you can’t do much better than a sirloin.If you’re in a time crunch during back to school season, consider steak skewers. Steak, peppers, scallions and folded up tortillas can be skewered quickly. Throw on some salt and pepper and some olive oil and seven or so minutes on the grill should provide you with a medium rare steak that is too good to be true.
