Best meats for summer grillingWe're well into summer and nothing beats grilled meats. As fabulous as ribeyes and pork chops are, high prices have me looking to other parts of animals for interesting cuts to grill. Here are three of favorites I've come across.
Pork Leg Cutlets: I adore grilled pork, and leg cutlets are a great option. I buy them boneless, meaning the shank bone has been cut out of each piece, and sear them for about 2 minutes on each side over high heat. The taste and texture is similar to pork tenderloin. They're tender, low in fat, and best of all, about half the price of center-cut pork loin chops.
Tip: Since these cutlets are much thinner than traditional pork chops, cook over high heat to get grill marks without overcooking the cutlets in the middle.
