I know, I know, I live in South Florida, which means we can technically grill all year round, but then again, it does rain a lot so your grilling moments can come to an end very quickly!
A few years ago our gas outside grill died a horrible death of rust and exposure to the south florida weather elements. So after assessing the situation I decided just for the convenience and maintenance to invest in an electric grill instead.
This way I can use it outside and inside and the weather will never be a problem 🙂 am I smart or what? lol
Anyway, yes I know its not the same as a real BBQ (not to mention the really real once like they have in my country “Uruguay” see pic below)
but you know what, it works for us. So with that said, tonight I brought out my handy dandy Wolfgang Puck electric grill/griddle (oh please note I use the griddle part of it a lot for pancakes, omelettes and lots of other yummy things).
This morning I put some flank steak into a ziplock bag and marinated it in mojo for about 8 hrs. Whilst the grill was getting hot, I turned the oven on to 400 deg F and seasoned some Broccolini (yes I know, twice in a week but we love this veggie). <3
This time I drizzled some Parmesan Garlic Olive Oil from the Sedona Olive Oil company. I let it roast for 15 minutes turning it over once to get an even color on it.
I also made some light and fluffy Couscous, seasoned with cilantro, lime, turmeric and garlic.
Once the grill was very hot I quickly cooked the Carne Asada and served it immediately with a side of Couscous and some roasted Broccolini <3
Nothing nicer that the satisfaction of making my family happy 🙂
