Grilled Mushroom Swiss Burgers

Rating: 4.29 stars
This is a great way to spice up an ordinary hamburger. Not only can this be done on the grill, but pan fried if desired. Too good not to try!!

Squirrel's Great Beef Steak

Rating: 4.62 stars
My friends request this flavorful marinade every time they come over for a barbeque! This is enough to make one steak. Increase the recipe for a crowd!

This grilled tri-tip recipe tastes gourmet, but is actually very easy to make. It's a perfect dinner for guests. It is sure to impress!

Grilled Gorgonzola-Basil Burgers

Rating: 4.4 stars
I tasted these burgers in Athens, Georgia. They were so good that I made my own recipe. It combines fresh basil, Gorgonzola cheese, and garlic, and it's easy enough for a quick and simple dinner. Serve them on toasted sourdough or ciabatta buns.

Best Hamburger Ever

These burgers are the best on the grill in the summertime. Jam-packed with all kinds of stuff, and no tasteless bread crumbs!

The Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Yeah, I-Lived-in-Texas, Smoked Brisket

Rating: 4.43 stars
This is hands-down the best way I have found to cook a brisket.

Mom's Legendary Stuffed Hamburgers

Rating: 4.23 stars
These are enormous, stick-to-your-ribs kind of burgers with a surprise in the center. A real family favorite. I like to serve them on a bun topped with sauteed mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Use extra lean or lean ground beef instead of medium because the bacon adds to the fat content of the meat.

Chef John's Grilled Mojo Beef

Rating: 4.86 stars
This Cuban-inspired mojo marinade would work great as an all-purpose marinade for just about anything destined for the grill, but skirt steak is my top choice.

Juicy Lucy Burgers

Rating: 4.54 stars
A favorite of Minnesotans! The famous Juicy Lucy! Mmmm. So good. You MUST use American cheese on this to achieve the juiciness in the middle! I like sauteed mushrooms and onions on mine!

All-American Burger Dog

Rating: 4.55 stars
This 'burger dog' is far more than a hot dog-shaped cheeseburger. It's a one-handed wonder that's perfectly proportioned and easier to eat than a regular cheeseburger.

Slow Roasted BBQ Beef Roast

Rating: 4.5 stars
Three words describe this roast: juicy, tender, flavorful.

Bistecca alla Fiorentina (Tuscan Porterhouse)

Rating: 4.58 stars

This flagship, Tuscan steak is made from the region's Chianina breed of cattle which are prized for their tenderness and flavor. In typical Italian style, simplicity rules the day; little more than olive oil, rosemary, and salt are needed to highlight the rich flavor of the grilled meat. With Italian food, freshness and quality are top priority, so I use nothing less than choice porterhouse, and much prefer prime!
