The summer of 2017 is almost over – don’t let it end without trying one of our grilling recipes.

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

Yes, porchetta can be made on a grill! Here we highlight 3 different methods for cooking this beautiful pork dish alfresco. A citrus gremolata adds bright, fresh flavor to our succulent milk-fed porcelet. It takes some patience, but this dish is definitely worth it.


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.
