Stovetop Grilled Dinner

 

Yeah! It was 102 degrees outside  where we live here in Texas. We wanted something done on the grill, but, I didn’t want to stand over a barbecue grill in that heat. So, I did a Stovetop Grilled Dinner. Gammy got us a stovetop grill a few years ago just for hot times like this. If you don’t have one you should get one. We also have a smaller one that just uses one burner. And, that is a nice change from a skillet for a steak or two.

Today’s Tip

When you are going to cook meat in a skillet or on a grill it will sear or grill with nicer results if you pat the meat dry with paper or cloth towel just before you put the meat in the skillet or on the grill.  And. if you have the time to let it get to room temperature.  It will turn out nicer with juices kept inside and a seared surface on the outside. Also wait until the last minute to put the salt and pepper on the meat before you put in the skillet or grill. The salt will draw out the moisture if left on the raw meat too long.

Pork tenderloin works real good on the grill and we like those little pork tenderloin steaks. We went with potato slices and thick zucchini slices as the starch and veggie.  

Another tip. This one about using a stovetop grill. Instead of putting it on the large oval burner that is meant for a grill I’ve found that we get better results putting it on two round burners. Then I can have two different temperatures. 

Put the grill on the stove and spray or drizzle the surface with olive oil. And, set the burners at medium high.

Cut the potatoes into about quarter inch thick slices and the zucchini and pork tenderloin into about 3/4 inch thick slices. Put the meat,  potatoes and the zucchini slices in a bowl and pour a little bit of olive oil. Then  sprinkle in some garlic powder, salt, pepper and grated parmesan cheese .  Toss it all together,  Put the potatoes and the pork on the grill and when they are done on one side  turn them over and add the zucchini. The zucchini will seer real fast so just a minute of less  on each side.

When everything is done the way that you like it. Sit down and enjoy your stovetop grilled dinner!
