Top round and tater wedges

I decided to use my old friend last night, my Performer. It's been being neglected for a while, so it was time for a little love!

The local grocery store had top round steaks on sale which are one of my favorites to grill. I like them because they are very lean, but if cooked right taste great! These were thinner than I normally like, but they worked fine. Seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled 2 minutes on each side. I also did some potato wedges that I dipped in Zesty Italian dressing and then seasoned with salt and pepper. Grilled direct until they formed a nice crust and then finished indirect.

JB, the potatoes do soak up the dressing! I did not let these marinade very long though.

YES, Top Round is very tender but it has to be cooked NO MORE than med rare, rare is best! It also has to be sliced fairly thin. For me, I love the stuff because it's just a BEEFY flavor without all the fat.

Look in your grocery store for "London Broil/Top Round" and the thicker the better! Get some horseradish to go along with it too, very very good together!!

Yes Greg, it's KF and I agree it's not the best stuff but I have several bags left and as long as it's all ashed over it's not too bad to cook with. But the smell of it while it initially started to burn reminded me of burning a trash pile! YUCK!

No reverse sear ?

There wouldn't be a Minion Method if it weren't for Kingsford.

More contests have been won with Kingsford than any other charcoal. Just ask Myron and Chris Lilly for starters. Oh yeah, I should add that Myron heavily saturates the charcoal in Lighter fluid first. Maybe thats the secret everyones been missing.
