Some of my favorite recipes are the;

STUBB’S SPICY SHRIMP KABOBS

Ingredients

1 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 ½ cups pineapple chunks (preferably fresh)

1 red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch squares

½ cup Stubb’s Pork Marinade (or more if desired)

8 wooden or metal skewers

Cooking Instructions

If using wood skewers, soak in water for at least 15 minutes. Thread shrimp, pineapple, and red bell pepper in an alternating pattern onto skewers.

Prepare your grill for direct high heat cooking. Oil the grates and place the skewers over the heat. Grill for 5-10 minutes, flipping often until the shrimp are pink and cooked through. Baste the skewers with Stubb’s Pork Marinade every time you flip.

NOTE: To make the dish less spicy, baste less often.

Place patties on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 7 to 8 minutes for medium (160°F) doneness, until beef is not pink in center and juices show no pink color, turning once and brushing burgers with remaining sauce after turning.

Cut each pineapple slice into thirds. Line bottom of each roll with lettuce, top with burger, then with pineapple piece. Close sandwiches. Makes 4 servings.

STUBB’S COWBOY BURGER

Ingredients

2.5 lbs ground beef

1/4 cup Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite Bar-B-Q Sauce

2 Tbsp. Stubb’s Beef Marinade

1/4 tsp. Stubb’s Mesquite Liquid Smoke (optional)

1 tsp Stubb’s Beef Rub

1 large yellow onion, cut into slices

Shredded cheddar cheese

Bacon slices, cooked crisp

Onion Rolls or Hamburger Buns

Toppings of your choice

Cooking Instructions

In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, Bar-B-Q sauce, Stubb’s Beef Marinade, liquid smoke (optional) and Stubb’s Beef Spice Rub. Use your hands to mix well. Once combined, separate the mixture to make six patties. Make a slight indent with your thumb in middle of each patty to keep it from swelling while on the grill.

Prepare your grill for direct medium-heat cooking. Lightly oil the grates and place your burger on the grill, indent side up. Cook burgers for 12-14 minutes or until preferred doneness (160°F) turning once during cooking. While burgers are cooking, add the onion slices to the grill and cook until lightly charred and soft, turning once. Also toast the buns.

To serve, top burgers with Bar-B-Q sauce, bacon, grilled onion and shredded cheese. Add additional toppings to your liking.

TIP: To cook the bacon for this burger, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lay bacon on top. Cook in a preheated oven at 375°F for 15-20 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel lined plate to cool.

YUMMY BURGER COMING YOUR WAY!

Did a lot of lazing around over memorial day, but was fast enough to snapped a quick picture of the Blue Heron “Harvey” that hangs around on the lake. He is so fun to watch.

So lets talk about summer. It’s the best for so many reasons. One reason I love summer is My Grill. It makes for Simple, Fast, and Light Meals. My grill goes into over time in the summer. I grill everything.

  • Pizza
  • Vegetables
  • Side Dishes
  • Fish
  • Meat
  • Tofu

Just to name a few.

I wanted to share a product with you. The nice folks over at Stubb’s BBQ sent me some amazing products to try out and also some free coupons to share with one of my readers.

The condiment aisle usually scares me. Like ants at a picnic, hidden dietary pitfalls are unwelcome – but all too common – guests at spring and summer cookouts. Condiments from mayo to soy sauce can be the biggest offenders, with artificial ingredients, fat, sodium and gluten (a new survey says fully one-third of Americans are eating gluten-free diets.)

As we head into picnic and cookout season, I wanted to let you know about Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q sauces, rubs and marinades, the industry leader among small batch sauces. Stubb’s products are all-natural, certified gluten-free and contain no high fructose corn syrup, yet retain their deep-rooted, authentic Texas tastes and barbecue cook-off credibility. They offer a great way for people to add flavor and interest to sandwiches, burgers and grilled meats, fish and veggies, while avoiding the fat, calories or artificial flavors, sweeteners, colors or preservatives often found on the condiment aisle.

So thanks to Stubb’s there are healthy options.

Look at all this Stubb’s goodness. My grill and I are very happy to have some new healthy items to try out.

010

Stubb’s

Sauces: The line-up includes OriginalSpicyHickory BourbonSweet HeatSmokey Mesquite and Honey Pecan. At an average of 20 calories, 110 mg. of sodium per tablespoon and no high fructose corn syrup (the #1 or #2 ingredient in most bbq sauces), Stubb’s is a healthier option on the condiment aisle with no sacrifice on taste. Stubb’s sauces can be enjoyed throughout the year on sandwiches, as a dipping sauce for proteins, or as a key ingredient in slow cooker creations.

Marinades: From light and tangy Chicken Marinade with brown sugar, onion, garlic and citrus, to zesty Beef Marinade, made with soy, lime, ginger and red pepper, Stubb’s adds interest to everyday cooking whether on the grill, in the skillet or the slow cooker. (Other flavors include Steakhouse and Pork marinades.) Stubb’s Injectable marinades in Texas Butter or Chipotle Butter, which have no fat and just 10 calories per tablespoon, come with their own injector and help create moist, flavorful roasted chicken or turkey, summer briskets, weeknight beef and pork roasts and more.

Rubs: Stubb’s savory spice bends in Bar-B-Q, Pork, Beef, Chicken and Steak can be used to prep meats for the grill or used to boost flavor and add a kick to any dish.

Here’s a few Recipes on my To-DO list from the Stubb’s Recipe Vault.

Stubb’s Citrus Chicken

Share the Love and Happiness
Ingredients

4 chicken breasts

Stubb’s Chicken Marinade

1 orange

Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce (optional)

Cooking Instructions

Fill dish with Stubb’s Chicken Marinade and half the juice of one large orange. Marinate chicken breasts in it for 1 hour up to overnight.

Preheat grill to 300-325 degrees. If you want to bake the chicken, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place chicken on grill over direct heat, mopping with Stubb’s Moppin’ Sauce while cooking. Grill 5-10 minutes on each side until fully cooked (the internal temperature should be 165 degrees). If baking the chicken, bake 9-15 minutes on each side until juices run clear and the internal temperature is 165 degrees.

Allow meat to cool a few minutes before serving. Slice up the remaining pieces of orange and plate with the chicken.

Here’s what I made with Stubb’s Sweet Heat B-B-Q Sauce and Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub.

Double Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Chicken Burgers.

031

Ingredients:

1 pound ground chicken

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

½ small onion, chopped into small pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tablespoons Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce

2 teaspoons Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub

¼ teaspoon each salt and black pepper

¼ cup Panko bread crumbs

*Note: I did not use an egg to bind the ingredients, the ground chicken was moist enough to hold together without it.

032

For serving:

Sliced Avocado

Sliced Cheese

Lettuce

Tomatoes, sliced

Hamburger buns

Cooking Instructions:

Prepare grill for medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, mix together ground chicken, onions, garlic, sauces, seasonings, and bread crumbs. Using hands, shape ground chicken mixture into four equal patties.

Cook burgers on prepared grill for 4-5 minutes per side or until cooked through (160°F for beef, 165°F for ground chicken/turkey). When grilling the second side of the burger slather with additional Stubb’s Sweet Heat Bar-B-Q Sauce.

Serve on hamburger buns, topped as desired with avocado, sliced cheese, lettuce and tomato.

I also used the Stubb’s Bar-B-Q Spice Rub for my Red Skin Potatoes side dish.

These came together easy. I boiled the potatoes for 30 minutes. Sliced and semi smashed the potatoes on a cookie sheet, then sprinkled with Stubb’s Beef Rub, and drizzled with Olive Oil and baked on 375 degrees for the total cooking time of the Bar-B-Q Chicken Burgers. That ended up being approximately 10 minutes or so, just enough time to get crispy.

So Stubb’s and I want you to try some Stubb’s Products for yourself. Stubb’s products can be found at the following stores: Kroger, Safeway, WalMart, Food Lion, many Whole Foods, Winn Dixie, and Publix.
