Grilled Beef and Sweet Potatoes

by zesty on August 11, 2009 · 6 comments

Today is the day!!  Our first family excursion by vehicle.  I am so excited although somewhat nervous , well not really but you know what I mean.  One of my favorite meals was on tap last night.  Nothing special, nothing fancy just some grilled beef , grilled sweet potatoes and some sugar snap peas sauteed with Balsamic Vinegar.  YUM!

Here are some shots

For the sweet potatoes, I microwave two on HIGH for 9 minutes, then slice them about an inch thick – toss in olive oil, salt and pepper and toss on the grill.

For the peas – I simply just stir fry in olive oil and toss in some balsamic vinegar and cook through (serve crunchy and hot).

Zesty Tip: Next time you grill beef – try turning the meat only ONCE ( Cook completely on one side before flipping and the end result will be juicy and rewarding).

I have a guest post lined up for tomorrow, Thursday and a fun post scheduled for Friday as I am not sure how much internet I will have through the week.  I will post you all on the trip once I return.

Take care

zesty

The meal looks awesome. I can’t wait to move out of my apartment and have the ability to buy/use a grill. I love that you grilled your sweet potato slices! What a fantastic idea, they look so tasty.

Have a great trip! And be sure to bring back all the information you learn :)
