George Foreman Grill: First Experiences

After getting back from NY, I finally get a chance to use my George Foreman grill for the first time. I went to a local grocery store and bought some beef, some porkchops, and some chicken breast.

I decided to cook some porkchops tonight. Everything turned out great, porkchops were cooked how they were supposed to. Instead of "doing it right" with the preparations, I just sprinkled some "steak seasoning" while cooking and it tasted pretty good. I'm sure I'll put my new grill to good use; I bought enough meat for about 10 dinners.

Thanks girl. :) Do you know if it handles frozen meat well? Or do I have to microwave it first?

um.. i'm not positive but i've always used it with defrosted meat... so i'm assuming you have to microwave it first. plus it'll save you time that way!

I wouldn't recommend microwaving frozen, uncooked meat. It could get partially cooked in some spots and still be raw in others. Best bet is to put it in the fridge the morning before you want to use it or, if you're in a hurry, put the meat in a bowl, put the bowl in the sink, and let warm water fill the bowl and overflow out for about 30 minutes. Don't turn the water all the way on, just a trickle and don't leave it out for more than an hour or you risk getting all kinds of nasty things growing in there.

Last entry I wrote "still be raw in others" but I meant might be still FROZEN in others.

Dude, Andrew, I just grilled some semi-frozen chicken breast (after heated in microwave) using my new grill, then put cheese on it to melt, and put it in a hamburger bun. It was really really good.
