Just in time for Independence Day, we are bringing you a roundup of our Best Grilling Recipes for the Fourth of July. During the hot summer days, simple recipes tend to be winners, so that was our focus in picking some of our favorite recipes to recommend for your Fourth of July festivities. For a longer list of grilling recipe ideas, check out our 50+ Recipes for Labor Day Weekend.
Steak tips are a classic grilling recipe, so let’s start off our Best Grilling Recipes for the Fourth with our Easy Grilled Steak Tips. As suggested by the name, these steak tips are simple to make. A quick, flavorful marinade featuring soy sauce as the main ingredient gets things started. Then you need 10 minutes or less of grilling for some tasty steak tips.
I love grilling pork tenderloin, and this Grilled Cilantro Lime Pork Tenderloin is one of my favorite ways to enjoy it. I definitely recommend trying it with the Sweet Potatoes with Cumin Sage Butter that you see in the picture above.
Once I get the grill going, I love to grill up some onions to go with the meat I’m grilling. So we had to feature something with grilled onions in our best grilling recipes roundup; our grilled steak and onions is the pick!
Back to pork tenderloin again–gotta have two choices in our best grilling recipes list! Asian Grilled Pork Tenderloin, and we go a bit off the beaten path for a great wine pairing choice.
Meat may be the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Fourth of July grilling, but I definitely want to include some good fish and chicken options in our best grilling recipes roundup. My latest recipe from the grill is this Grilled Halibut with Kale Pesto recipe. We enjoyed it with some white wine I brought back from a recent trip to Abruzzo, Italy.
This Grilled Tandoori Chicken takes a few short cuts from the traditional Indian recipe, but still has plenty of good flavor. Gotta have some international flavors for our Fourth of July grilling!
If I had to choose, I’d say swordfish is my favorite seafood to put on the grill. So I have to put some sword in our best grilling recipes lineup. I love grilled swordfish with kale pesto, but I’ve already featured pesto on fish here. So I’m highlighting our Grilled Swordfish Pasta Margherita, which includes fresh summer tomatoes and basil.
The freshness of pineapple salsa is a great counterpoint to smoky grilled food. I love this salsa topping a variety of fish, but am going to highlight our Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Salsa here today.
