Summertime, and grillin' is easy

Satisfyingly simple meals your entire family will savor

The long Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial kick-off to summer, and there’s no better way to mark the occasion than with a cookout featuring easy, flavorful dishes sure to please every member of your family.

Steak Lovers: a thick-cut ribeye is the perfect choice. Season with salt and pepper, or dress it up with a classic steak butter made with garden-fresh herbs. Robust, juicy and tender, this steak is a great way to celebrate warm weather.

Pizza Party: Kids of all ages will enjoy a summertime twist on a traditional favorite. Instead of calling for pizza delivery, make your own on the grill. Top a crispy grilled crust with strip steak and blue cheese for a great burst of flavor – or let the little ones choose a milder cheese like mozzarella to complement the steak.

Burger BBQ: The best cookouts have burgers on the menu and one made of premium Angus beef, mushrooms, cheddar, bacon and kicked-up mayo is sure to be a favorite. Prepare toppings while burgers are grilling. Smaller appetites? Make mini burgers (sliders) and serve as an appetizer or kid-friendly option.
