Smothered Steak

Bright lime and cilantro flavors are balanced by a hearty Puerto Rico-inspired steak topper of onion, garlic, sweet pepper, and sausage.

Huli-Huli Pork

"Huli-huli" means "turn-turn" in Hawaiian, a reference to the cooking method of this popular fund-raising barbecue dish. Typically, huli-huli is made with chicken; the innovation here is the switch to pork.

Cowboy Rib-Eyes and Summer Salsa

Big flavors from the Lone Star State, in both the spicy chili rub and the fresh salsa, combine to make a bold flavor statement.

Grilled Shrimp Salad

From Montana comes an easy five-ingredient Grilled Shrimp Salad. The lettuce is grilled too -- combining a Chinese taste for cooked lettuce with the flair for West Coast grilling.

Herb-Smoked Salmon

The salmon is prepared Northwest-style with a baste of butter and thyme; wood chips and thyme sprigs added to coals give fish a just-right touch of Southern smoke.

Mushroom Chicken

Inspired by a childhood that included hunting wild mushrooms in California, this recipe includes mushrooms and oregano tucked under the skin, flavoring the chicken while it slowly cooks on the grill.

Beer Marinated Pork Chops

This recipe honors the hearty cooking of Eastern European immigrants who flocked to Ohio's steel mills. Just before serving, shreds of cheese are sprinkled on, melting into a luscious sauce.

Memories of peach harvest led to the creation of Ginger Peach Glazed Chicken. The addition of vinegar and horseradish, a popular Southern combination, add a little kick to the food.
