When you fire up the grill, make
it work double-time for you. Cook
once and make two meals!
Cali it a dividend or a bonus,
but cooking once for two meals is
a smart thing to do. Think beyond
leftovers make a completely
different second meal. For exam
ple, grill a sirloin steak; serve half
of it the first night. A night or two
later use the remainder in a salad
or sandwich.
Thai’s easy to do with Sesame-
Ginger Grilled Sirloin. A reserved
portion of the ginger-sesame-soy
sauce marinade for the beef also
doubles as a salad dressing for the
second meal. Here’s how it works.
Meal #1: Marinade a beef lop
sirloin steak, then grill with bell
peppers. Reserve half of the grill
ed steak and peppers to use in the
salad; serve the remaining steak
and peppers.
Meal 42: Cut the reserved beef
and peppers into strips, toss with
the reserved dressing, pea pods
and cooked vermicelli. In 20 min
utes, dinner is served.
Because sirloin is a tender beef
cut, it only needs to marinate IS
minutes to take on the flavor of the
marinade. Marinating should al
ways be done in the refrigerator.
(Tip: A heavy-duty plastic food
safe bag is ideal for marinating.)
