The minute it starts getting warmer here, I am immediately ready to heat up the grill and grill anything and everything. Grilling just brings out the flavor in anything you put on the flame. Plus it is easy to get a meal ready in minutes. Or you can grill enough for the entire week and have everything freezer ready in minutes.
I love my patio and will just sit out there reading while the grill gets hot and everything is cooking. I am always on the lookout for easy marinades to use on my steaks. When I was at Walmart last week and saw that Nescafé Clásico was so inexpensive, I knew I had to grab it.
I found the Nescafé Clásico in the coffee section and also in the Hispanic Foods section of the store. Using the coffee in a marinade and a rub gives the steak added flavor. Plus the single packets are perfect for a small steak or if you are taking your steak someplace else to grill, it is easy to take with you. I love that all you need to do is add hot water to the contents of the single packet and voila, coffee ready in a few seconds. It’s an easy marinade that instills great flavor. You can also add the MAGGI Bouillon to your rub to give it an added flavor on your grilled chicken or pork recipes too. These two items will be definite go-to items for my grilling season recipes.
