I love getting food in the mail especially when I’m not expecting it.
Last week I received a package from the folks at McCormick filled with a whole line of new products created for the barbecue season. The McCormick Grill Mates® and Lawry’s® offer a taste of American grilling at its finest.Included in the kit were: a bottle of both Lawry’s Balsamic Herb marinade, and Original Seasoned marinade as well as McCormick Fiery 5 Pepper Blend, Cowboy Rub, Carolina Country Marinade and Backyard Brew Marinade. The last two are mixed with beer or water. vinegar and oil before you begin to create a grilled sensation.We sampled the Balsamic Herb on pork chops, cooking them n the crock pot instead of the grill. This little alteration worked nicely infusing the meat with a sweet piquancy.If this is any indication of the other products my grilling season is going to be a good one.The websites www.mccormick.com and www.lawry’s.com have plenty of recipes to inspire you. All the products are available now at your neighborhood grocery just in time for summer.
