5 Ways to Win at Grilling on Labor Day

If you’ve been grilling burgers, steaks, and chops all summer, it’s time to shake things up. The summer is almost over – don’t let it end without trying one of our unique grilling recipes with wild boar, lamb, or milk-fed pork. Read on for grilling inspiration.

Grilled or Roasted Wagyu Tri-Tip with Romesco Sauce

There’s beef and there’s Waygu. Make our Wagyu tri-tip for summer’s goodbye party. This cut is lean, flavorful and feeds a small crowd quickly – cooking time in most cases is just 20 minutes. Here we give it a tasty spice rub and finish it with Romesco sauce, pesto’s slightly sexier Spanish cousin (that’s just as easy to make).

Spicy Lamb Burger Sliders

Sure, you’ve had a lot of burgers this summer, but how many were lamb burgers? For these Moroccan-spiced lamb sliders, we combine our merguez sausage and ground lamb then top with grilled halloumi cheese and a harissa yogurt sauce. They’re perfect for a party.

Grilled Porcelet Porchetta with Gremolata

Peri-Peri Grilled Baby Chicken

You’ve got to offer chicken at a backyard party, but switch it up with juicy, mild poussin. It’s the perfect vehicle for spicy peri-peri marinade in this easy recipe. Garlic, lemon, oregano, and fresh chilis come together for big flavor pay-off. The marinade is equally delicious on our air-chilled organic chicken or even rabbit, just scale up as needed.

Grilled Duck Breasts with Raisin-Pineapple Sauce

Have you grilled duck breast this summer? In this recipe, rich duck magret is perfectly balanced by sticky sweetness from Norman Van Aken’s luscious raisin-pineapple sauce, his version of an old-fashioned Cumberland. Want to use fresh peaches, blueberries or cherries instead? A quick pan sauce with the fruit of your choice will work well with this grilled duck breast.
