Throw Some Beef on the Barbie!
Some people like chicken, and others go for fish, but for a lot of people, it's not a barbecue without beef! When you fire up the grill this summer, make sure you've got some tasty beef choices for your family and friends who crave burgers and steaks.
- Marinades are a great way to add a new twist to summer grilling stand-bys. Kikkoman Teriyaki Marinades make marinating a breeze—they can be used straight from the bottle, or you can personalize them with added ingredients.
- Mix ground beef with Less Sodium Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce, shape into patties and brush a little extra on top for extra flavor and juiciness. Or brush steaks with Kikkoman Teriyaki Takumi Collection Sauces or Kikkoman Teriyaki Baste & Glaze in any one of the many delicious flavors just before you take them off the grill, for a quick and delicious glaze.
- Beef and soy sauce both have umami, the savory "fifth flavor" that makes food craveable. And when you combine these two umami-rich ingredients by marinating beef in a Kikkoman Soy Sauce-based marinade, you maximize the intensity of the umami effect. Try this recipe for Grilled Steak with Black Bean and Corn Salad, made with Less Sodium Soy Sauce, and you'll see what we mean.
- Kikkoman's grilling microsite has a host of flavorful ideas from around the world to get your creative juices flowing. Try recipes like West African Mafe (peanut) Beef Kabobs, São Paolo Pesto with BBQ Beef, or this month's featured recipe, French Onion Soup Burgers. You'll also find great tips for better grilling.
