Dinner Tonight - Grill Once; Endless Possibilities

We are sharing Grill Once; Endless Possibilities tips on this week's "Dinner Tonight." Watch some simple steps to an amazing dinner for your family.


  • 5 cloves garlic, pureed

  • 1/3 cup soy sauce (if you're watching your sodium, you can use reduced-sodium soy sauce)

  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar

  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • Start with a clean grill that is heating 400 degrees.

  • Trim excess fat from meats to avoid flare-ups while grilling.

  • Grilling at medium to medium-low temperatures ensures even cooking. If the temperature is too high, beef can char and become overcooked on the outside before the interior reaches the desired doneness.

  • Using a meat thermometer, you want to check for desired doneness. For best results, use an instant-read thermometer. For steaks and burgers, insert the thermometer horizontally into the side (not the top) to check the internal temperature.

  • Cook burgers to at least 160 degrees (medium donness). Cook steaks to at least 145 degrees (medium rare doneness).

  • Use long-handled tongs for turning steaks; spatulas for burgers. A fork will pierce the beef causing loss of flavorful juices.
