I absolutely LOVE, love, love McCormick Grill Mates seasonings. I think I have almost every variety in my cabinet and I use them for so many different things…not just to season meats for the grill. Although they are fabulous for that and if you are having a cookout this 4th of July (or any other time for that matter) you should really consider trying out some of their new ones. I tried both the Grill Mates® Slow & Low Smokin’ Texas BBQ Rub and the Grill Mates® Slow & Low Memphis Pit BBQ Rub rubbed on ribs the other day. I don’t think I can decide which I like better so my suggestion is to grab a pack of both!! Having Burgers? No problem!! The Grill Mates® Steakhouse Onion Burger Seasoning is FABULOUS!!! They have SOOOO many different varieties that there is something for everyone and every meat that you can think of. The other day our grill messed up though and we wanted some flavor…as I was browsing the fridge and the cabinet to see what I could throw together I thought Hmmm, what if I mixed up some Grill Mates and some flour, and breaded some pork chops. Grand Slam!! We gobbled those babies up and wished I had made more. So, even if you don’t have a grill, don’t let that limit your imagination on what you can do with McCormicks Grill Mates.
Choose your favorite flavor packet. I am using Grill Mates Spiced Brandy and Herb marinade. Even though it says it is a marinade it can be used as so much more. We use their marinades as seasonings, rubs and anything else we can think of.
Mix the packet with some flour (it doesn’t matter if you use all-purpose or self-rising, both work)
Heat about 1/4 cup oil in a skillet. Dredge the pork chops in the flour mixture and fry on med-high heat for about 4 minutes per side.
They will be golden brown and taste like perfection!!
I hope you get the chance to try any or all of these. They are all so good and will make your family sing your praises. Or grab some Grill Mates, a slab of meat and fire up the grill. You really can’t go wrong either way.
I hope you each have a fun and safe 4th of July Celebration. We will be celebrating this great day of freedom by eating some great food, fellow-shipping with family and friends and floating around the pool. What’s on the menu? I am not completely sure yet other than some pulled pork BBQ made with Grill Mates® Slow & Low Memphis Pit BBQ Rub and some Italian Cheesy Potatoes. The rest is up to the guests since everyone has been asked to bring a side-dish. I will have to update you after I find out myself.“McCormicks Grill Mates supplied me with some of the seasonings to help facilitate this post. I really have been using their seasoning and spices for forever and day and you just can’t get much better. I was in no other way compensated and all opinions are those of my own.”
