Triple Digit Grilling

It reached 100 degrees F. today. That’s pretty hot if you ask me. So why not celebrate the head buy firing up the grill. Tonight I did a basic chuck roast cut in half (to keep the cook time down thus not burning the outside) with a horseradish mustard glaze.

Horseradish Mustard Glaze

  • Two heaping tablespoons of jarred coarse horseradish.
  • ~1/3 cup of Dijon mustard.
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper to taste.

Similar to what I did last night with the chicken, I salt and peppered the steak to start. Once the meat got over half way done, I coated it with the mustard glaze. It turned out great. I’m not a huge mustard fan but I really liked this.

Alsace Pizza

We make a lot of pizza on the grill in this house. Tonight we made something different. Inspired by the French/German region known as Alsace, we made a delicious pizza. We used our regular pizza dough recipe (which I need to post another time), topped with a light coating of creme fraiche, smoked mozzarella cheese, sliced green onions and pan fried panchetta strips. Good stuff.

Smoking Norway

I didn’t get a picture of it but we saw a good sized offset smoker behind a restaurant here in Norway. Pretty cool. Maybe we should eat there tonight. 🙂
