The sunshine has been glorious here in central Oregon. In fact, I snuck in a little nap on our back deck yesterday. I can feel springtime coming, I can feel it in my bones. I shut my eyes and I can feel myself floating on the Deschutes River. :)

We use this little OXO clean bladed meat tenderizer for tenderizing, which has prongs that go deep into the meat. You won’t believe how tender it makes the meat. (Check it out, friends. You will want one of these tools, or better yet, buy ahead for Father’s Day!)

Marinate ahead in the fridge–2 hours to 24 hours–and the meat is perfect for grilling.

We all know grilling season is sweeter when you share it with friends. Some of our greatest summer memories are grilled meals around our outdoor dining table!

We love this recipe with a side of asparagus. Or even sweet onions (recipe coming soon!)

Right now, we have a KitchenAid Full-Size Propane Gas Grill on our deck. Charcoal grills burn hotter than gas grills, and are easier to use for smoking. But they require more lead time than gas grills, because you have to heat the coals before you begin the cooking.

Gas grills light instantly, and offer that steady, adjustable heat.

For a quick meal, and last minute guests? Gas is best.

The more you grill, the more you master the art.

  1. I’ve marinated in pickle juice before….. pepperoncini sounds great!

  2. have never used a tenderizer before, nice thought, and haven’t used a lot of peppercorns before, just a standard dose of salt and pepper seasoning, will give this one a try, thank you!

  3. I love that this uses up the juice of pepperoncini that I usually throw away! Can’t wait to try it.

  4. I’ll need to try this….and get a tenderizer…I’m not the best at cooking steaks

  5. can we purchasing the pepperoncini juice alone or do we have to purchase the peppers with it and just use the juice
