New York Steak with mashed red potatoes and a side of garden fresh zucchini

I have company today and they brought New York Steaks for us to BBQ on the Traeger Pellet Grills. I love people who bring me food…. such a wonderful gift 

I sprinkled Tahoe Spiceworks Inc. Garlic Rosemary BBQ Rub and sprayed on some olive oil onto the steaks. Oh my what a flavor!!

BBQ Marinade

Being in the Bay Area has its pros and cons… Cons being it has been hot in the triple digits for awhile. I am not use to my face glistening all the time, but thank goodness for pools! Where I live is bearable to this weather, but I am enjoying my vacation.

In order to keep the house from overheating we have opted to make BBQ steaks outside on the grill tonight. With the leftover steak I am making fajitas on the grill tomorrow night!

I marinated the steaks for a bit before throwing them on the hot grill. Baked several potatoes for about 45 minutes on the grill as well before the steaks sizzled next to them. And then boiled up some ears of corn on the burner on the grill as well.


BBQ Marinade

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup organic ketchup
1/4 cup gluten free soy sauce
4-6 garlic cloves, chopped

Mix all ingredients together and place on meat and let marinade for a minimum of 30 minutes.

Barbecue Pork Ribs

So this weekend usually markes our local rib cook-off. While it is wonderful and we attended for many years, it just isn’t all that affordable. And since my husband makes way better ribs anyhow we decided to make our own. We threw 3 slabs of st louis pork ribs from Costco on the Traeger Pellet Grills. Of course 3 slabs are too many for a family of 5, however, we will have a slab and a half for leftovers, which is fine by me!

My husband, Josh, slathered the ribs with Kinders BBQ Brown Sugar Rub, then we smoked the ribs for 3 hrs on the Traeger with Hickory flavored Pellets. Later we cooked the ribs for 2 hrs at 225º F. What we had was a nice crisp outside with a juicy inside. It was way worth the wait!
