AL FRESCO

DINING

PREP IN ADVANCE

When hosting an outdoor cookout, prep as

much as you can in advance. Wash and cut

fresh fruits and vegetables, marinate beef and

poultry, and cook whole grains a day or two

ahead of time.

GRILL VEGGIES LIKE A PRO

While grilled veggies exhibit tender-crisp

textures and deliciously smoky flavors, they

require a few tips and tricks to cook just right.

Choose varieties that can stand up to the heat of

the grill, such as zucchini, potatoes, asparagus,

broccoli, and cauliflower. Brush veggies with

olive oil or marinate before grilling to add flavor

and prevent sticking. Vegetables also vary in

how long they take to cook on the grill. Try

searing over high heat, then placing away from

the heat source to finish cooking.

SHEET TRAY

CHILE-LIME

STEAK FAJITAS

INGREDIENTS

• 3 garlic cloves, minced

• ¼ cup canola oil

• 1 tsp ground cumin

• 1 tsp salt

• ½ tsp ground black pepper

• 1/3 cup fresh lime juice

• 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro

• 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

• 1 tsp brown sugar

• 1¼ pounds boneless top round

steaks, thinly sliced

• 3 medium green, red and/or

yellow bell peppers, thinly sliced

• 1 medium yellow onion, thinly

sliced

• 8 (6-inch) corn tortillas

• Toppings: pico de gallo,

guacamole, sour cream, and/

or lime wedges for garnish

(optional)

DIRECTIONS

1. In small bowl, whisk garlic, oil, cumin, salt, and black pepper; reserve

half the oil mixture in large bowl, cover and refrigerate. Whisk lime juice,

cilantro, pepper flakes, and sugar into remaining oil mixture; add steaks

and lime juice mixture to large zip-top plastic bag. Seal bag, pressing

out excess air; refrigerate at least 2 or up to 8 hours.

2. Position 2 oven racks to center and next lower positions; preheat oven

to 475°. Place rimmed baking pan on center rack; preheat 10 minutes.

3. Add bell peppers and onion to reserved oil mixture and toss; spread on

hot pan and roast 5 minutes.

4. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Push pepper-onion

mixture to 1 side of pan; place steaks on opposite side. Wrap tortillas in

aluminum foil.

5. Roast steaks and vegetables on center rack and tortillas on lower rack

5 minutes or until vegetables are tender and internal temperature of

steaks reaches 140° for medium-rare; let stand 5 minutes. (Internal

temperature will rise 5 to 10° upon standing.) Serve steaks and pepperonion

mixture with tortillas and toppings, if desired.

SERVE CONDIMENTS IN

MUFFIN TINS

To enjoy condiments during picnics or

barbeques without carting individual bottles,

pour different sauces and toppings into

separate muffin compartments. Set a serving

spoon in each vessel, and cover with plastic

wrap or aluminum foil between uses.

SERVE SAFE FOOD

Keep food at the proper temperature to prevent

the growth of food-borne bacteria. The key is

to never let food remain in the “danger zone,”

between 40° and 140°, for more than two hours,

or one hour if outdoor temperatures are above

90°F. Always remember to thoroughly clean and

sanitize hands, surfaces and utensils, too.

MAKE CREATIVE, DUAL-

PURPOSE ICE PACKS

Instead of adding extra components to your

already-packed cooler, freeze a few water

bottles ahead of time, and use them as ice

packs to keep your food cold. Remove paper

labels on bottles and be sure lids are tightly

secured before freezing. When the bottles melt

back into water, enjoy an ice-cold beverage to

cool off.

TIME-SAVING

COOKING TIPS

Follow these suggestions to

create easy, flavorful meals while

saving valuable time, money,

and energy.

COOK ONCE, EAT TWICE

Plan meals that will last longer and ease your

cooking tasks for the week. Cook proteins that

can easily transition into double-duty meals. For

example, put aside some cooked ground beef

from a chili recipe to make tacos throughout the

week, or make a large batch of rice or pasta for

several quick and easy dishes. You’ll save tons of

time by not having to cook from scratch twice.

FREEZE FOR LATER

Don’t think you’ll eat your large batches before

they spoil? No problem – freeze them! The

freezer is key for saving both the integrity of

your ingredients and time! Prep and freeze

elements of your favorite recipes or freeze the

entire dish. Simply thaw and reheat whatever

you’re craving.

CHOOSE PASSIVE COOKING

TECHNIQUES

Cooking appliances can help you prepare

flavorful meals more easily. Meals made in a

slow cooker, rice cooker, pressure cooker, or

air fryer are great for nights you want to set it

and forget about it. Take advantage of these

gadgets that do the heavy lifting plus alleviate

cleaning stress.

SAVVY SHORTCUTS

Slicing and dicing ingredients for meal prep is

time-consuming. Pick up ready-to-cook veggies

in the Produce Department at your local Price

Chopper – we have prewashed greens, prechopped

vegetable medleys, shaved Brussels
