Matchmaking: Wine and Grilled Foods

Selecting wines for grilled fare follows the same essential rules used for any dish prepared by roasting, braising, or other indoor cooking techniques. Smoking, barbecuing, and grilling foods alter their fundamental flavor composition.



Spotlight on Grilling Pork

More and more, backyard cooks are turning to pork when deciding what to grill. It is delicious when cooked over an open fire and, being a sweet-tasting meat, lends itself to any number of marinades, rubs, sauces, and seasonings.

Grilled Satays: An Asian Twist on Summertime Grilling

Popular throughout Southeast Asia, satay is said to have originated in Indonesia, where it is the national dish. Also known as saté, this handy hand-held food is a popular street food and appetizer throughout Southeast Asia.

Satay is similar to other skewered-meat dishes from around the world, such as yakitori, shish kebab, shashlik, chuanr, and sosatie.

Culinary Classic: Texas-Style Smoked Brisket

For such a humble piece of meat, brisket sure gets a lot of attention.

Break out the Pork—It’s National BBQ Month!

The term barbecue comes from barbacoa, which is purported to translate as “sacred fire pit.” And fittingly so, because we can hardly think of a more transcendent food experience than sinking your teeth into the melt-in-your-mouth results of true low-and-slow barbecue. The results are fully worth waiting and watching for hours upon hours, and the experience is pure bliss.


Meat on a Stick – It’s That Simple

Does the prospect of preparing a grilled party menu for more than 10 people make your palms sweat? Kabobs can feed armies. In fact, Middle Eastern armies are credited with the invention of kabobs having used their swords as skewers for meats that were roasted over open-flame fires.



Try a Little Tenderness

Cut slices from the same steak but in two different directions, and you would never believe they came from the same steak at all. One will be tender, soft, and easy on the bite. The other will be chewier and, generally, a less than optimum eating experience by comparison. (more…)

Breakfast of (Grilling) Champions

Not many of us think of getting up in the morning, pouring a cup of coffee, and firing up the grill. But hey, why not? A delicious breakfast hot off the grill could turn any lazy, leisurely summer morning into a day to remember. (more…)

Brisket Variations

Brisket is one of our more popular cuts at Lobel’s of New York. Customers are always asking for it, and we’ve learned over the years that people are passionate about their brisket! That said, brisket is not the same thing to all people. To some, it’s the quintessential cut for good ol’ low-and-slow barbeque. To others, it’s a slow-cooked comfort food. And to others, it’s the centerpiece to a traditional Passover feast.
