There are many types of indoor grills but the best known is probably the George Foreman. The George Foreman grill cuts fat in any cut of meat. The problem is, this might also cut flavor, so check out the other types of indoor grills such as open style indoor grills. They are flat, and you grill on it just like you would a regular grill. Vents collect the smoke, and makes grilling inside fun and tasty. They are also indoor grills that have lids to close that enable you to cook other types of meat besides hamburgers.
Indoor grills make it possible to cook any type of item that you might normally cook on an outdoor grill. You can make hamburgers, grilled chicken, steak, pork chops, and veggies on your indoor grill just like you would do on your outdoor grill, paying attention to how long you cook it and the temperature of the meat. You can give great flavor to your indoor grilling recipes that taste just like outside grilling if you marinade your food that you want to grill, adding a little liquid smoke to the marinade.
You can also use your grill to make pizza and dessert. If your indoor grill is large enough anything you can make outside can be made inside. Slice peaches, apples, or pineapple and then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, and grill until nice marks are on the fruit. On the serving plate you can drizzle some honey, caramel, molasses or chocolate sauce over the fruit for an extra sweet taste. Top with whipped cream, and place a sprig of mint or a cookie, on the side. Just because it’s grilling doesn’t mean it can’t be fancy.
In the George Forman you can use it to make wonderful grilled sandwiches. A fun sandwich for kids is a grilled banana and peanut butter sandwich. You can even use it like a sandwich press if you press down hard on the top with a protected hand. Try it with all kinds of sandwiches for a fast lunch or dinner anytime, including the good old-fashioned grilled cheese sandwich. Add a bowl of soup and you’ll bring back childhood memories.
One thing you should remember is that even nice restaurants are grilling indoors. So, if you have the right equipment with plenty of ventilation you can do it too. Follow all instructions that come with your grill, and choose appropriate cuts of meat with proper marbling of fat. If you want a nice crispy crust, choose thicker cuts of meat so that the longer cooking process to bring the center to the right temperature makes the crust just right.
In addition, proper seasoning is imperative. Always season your meat by marinating meat at least 10 minutes, and bring to room temperature before grilling. Ensure that your grill is completely hot before you place the meat on the grill and cook for the proper amount of time which depends on the thickness, cut, and type of meat. If you’re not cooking meat, the same things are important.
