Grilled Beef is there anything better? Well… Marinated Beef that is Grilled and on my plate – that is a lot better. I cannot think of the warming weather, with out grilling on my mind. What better way to welcome the warm weather’s return to the Northern Hemisphere than to grill some tasty beef.
The marinate is a take off from the Ode to Summer marinade that has a fajita seasoning base. I kicked up this recipe by featuring a local beer brewer in the Salt Lake City Valley. Squatters has been in business since 1989 – and started the local micro-brewery craze here in Utah. With this craze, there came food – good food. People stepping up their game food wise – helps us to bring brighter, open-minded individuals to live in our society. While this food blog isn’t a social or political blog – what is – those same people who might think differently than you or I – also eat.
Sharing food, sharing stories, having fun around the dinner table eating simple, great food – is what life is about. I hope you enjoy this food, even if you do not imbibe – there are local craft breweries, food artisans just around your corner – making fantastic food. Make a point to support local merchants – as they employee your neighbors!
