The Food Lab: How to Make Thai-Style Grilled Chicken (Gai Yang)

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 11 comments

Thai cooks are experts at grilling all manner of meats, but nowhere does that proficiency shine more brightly than with chicken. Crisp, golden skin, coated in a richly charred marinade of toasted spices and herbs seasoned with fish sauce and sugar, the chicken is butterflied, flattened, and threaded onto bamboo skewers before being slowly grilled over charcoal. It's tasty enough on its own, but dipped into a sweet and spicy chili sauce, it becomes mind-blowingly delicious. More

Summer Grain Salads: Jasmine Rice With Grilled Vegetables and Cashews

Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

Inspired by Thai grilled beef salad (neua nam tok), this salad replaces the meat with grilled vegetables and adds fragrant jasmine rice. It's loaded with fresh herbs and dressed with a bracing, fish sauce-spiked lime vinaigrette. Plus, because the vegetables are grilled, they give the salad a deeper, smoky flavor. More

The Food Lab: Slow-Smoked, 40-Ounce, Dry-Aged Porterhouse Steaks

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 30 comments

Smoking is generally a method reserved for long-cooking, tough cuts like pork shoulder, ribs, or beef brisket, intended to deeply flavor and tenderize the meat over the course of a half day of cooking. But with a bit of finesse and a couple hours of free time, it's perfectly possible to get that same smoky flavor into a thick-cut steak and still have it come out perfectly medium-rare and juicy, so long as you play your cards right. Here's how it's done. More

Sunday Supper: Barbecue-Rubbed Pork Shoulder With Stovetop Rhubarb Ketchup

Sunday Supper Jennifer Olvera Post a comment

Pork shoulder is beloved for good reason: it's cheap, forgiving, and it can feed an army. Those reasons alone make it a winner of a cut in my book. It's also barbecue spice-ready, too, as you'll see here. And when that version is paired with a homemade, garden-fresh condiment, it comes mighty close to being my personal version of heaven on earth. More

A riff on tandoori-style chicken, these chicken kebabs are marinated with yogurt and lemon, with smoked and hot paprika in place of the more traditional Indian spice blend. The result is a completely different, but equally delicious, dish. More

The Food Lab Turbo: These Pimento-Jalapeño Cheeseburgers Will Knock You Out

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 8 comments

There's something about the way the caviar of the South (as pimento cheese is affectionately known) melts into a rich, oozy coating, its acidity and punch of pimento flavor accenting a thick and juicy grilled burger in a way that regular cheese just can't. Add some pickled jalapeño peppers in there in place of standard pickles and you've got yourself one hell of a fiery backyard treat. More

The Food Lab: Essential Techniques and Recipes for the Summer Grill

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 7 comments

In honor of the grilling season I'm missing, I'm going to make it my goal to get as many folks out into their backyards and onto their balconies as many times as possible this summer, because let's be honest: everything tastes better when there's fire, smoke, and cold beers involved, and what better way to gently nudge folks outdoors than with recipes and techniques? I've written a fair amount about grilling in the past, and while this list doesn't encompass quite everything I've done, it does hit the staples of an omnivorous summertime grill with plenty of chicken, steak, sausages, burgers, and—my favorite—corn.

Trevisano May Be the Best Vegetable You've Never Grilled

J. Kenji López-Alt 12 comments

You've never grilled trevisano or radicchio? I don't blame you. I pity you, but I don't blame you. They're both hearty bitter lettuces, and they both become remarkably sweet and succulent when charred over a live fire. Served with a drizzle of good olive oil and saba—a sweet wine-based condiment—along with a sprinkle of gorgonzola cheese, it's the best vegetable you've never grilled. More
