This prime rib came out beautifully and the rub created a nice aromatic crust. No photoshopping on this photo, it just came out that good! 🙂
Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you aren’t using your grill, does it? This is the perfect time to use your grill- because it’s your chance to shine with flavorful, smoky dishes off the grill that will make the dishes your friends are serving this time of year just seem plain boring. So look to your grill to knock the socks off your guests this year for the holidays. Below are some of my favorite recipe pairings for an elegant Meal On The Grill that shows your friends you’re a culinary genius. Oh, and if you leave the dessert out, they’re low carb too!! It’s nice to eat a meal around the holidays that won’t leave you feeling guilty!
