Grilling From Pantry Scratches
Some of us thinks we need the fancy cooking oils, vinegars and seasonings to make the best marinades for grilling. We even consider only a delicious variety of fish can render the best-tasting grilled fish dish.
I’m not sure how you take this, but for me, even the bare-bones pantry with the cheapest tomatoes and cooking ingredients can render the most delicious crockpot and grilled meals. I find the acids in the tomatoes do great in some of my all-from-scratch marinades. Funny and weird? 🙂
Owning a heavy-duty metal grill pan probably has been a help because I may have the cheapest ingredients but the large enough pan was more than enough to hold any of my cheap cuts of meat, turkey or beef roast; and with my humble marinade, it’s like having a dish with the most delicious gourmet ingredients.
So I must say this, don’t underestimate what we call scratches in the kitchen. It would be a disaster if you were having guests and realized at the last minute that you were missing something essential.
