Low Carb BBQ Burgers.

The better half harvested 3 huge bowls of Walla Walla Sweets from the garden, so BBQ burgers and Baked Onion Rings were our Friday night dinner!

Condiments for the burgers were:

Pepper Jack cheese
Lettuce
Tomato
Avocado
Grilled Onions
Mayo, Ketchup, Mustard

Burgers were done on the BBQ… The family’s were served on wheat rolls, mine served on lettuce leaves.

Oven Fried Onion Rings

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
4 teaspoons kosher salt
2 cups buttermilk
4 eggs
3 cups panko breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 large yellow sweet onions, such as Maui, sliced 1/4-to-1/2-inch thick

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place parchment paper onto 2 baking sheets and set aside.

In a small bowl, combine the flour, paprika and 2 teaspoons salt. In another bowl or shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs. Add half of the flour mixture to the buttermilk and beat until smooth and thickened.

In a separate bowl, combine the panko, olive oil and remaining 2 teaspoons salt.

Lightly dredge the onion rings in the flour mixture and then drop into the buttermilk. Drain the excess batter and then dredge in the panko mixture.

Arrange on the prepared baking sheets in a single layer. You can place smaller rings inside bigger rings if necessary, just make sure there is space between them. Then place in the oven. Cook until golden brown, 14 to 20 minutes. Halfway through the cooking time, flip over each onion ring to ensure even crisping and browning.

Fairly easy meal, but does need at least a half hour in advance in order for the meat to marinade.  I used 1 cup of bottled Teriyaki sauce (not the thick kind….consistency was similar to soy sauce).

BBQ Corn on the Cob

– Heat BBQ to Medium.
– Shuck the corn, clean off all the silk.
– Spread butter over each cob, and sprinkle on some Kosher salt.
– Wrap each corn cob in foil.
– Set on the grill

Meanwhile . . .

Easy BBQ Kabobs

1 cup bottle Teriyaki sauce
1 large red bell pepper
1 large yellow bell pepper
1 large orange bell pepper
1 large red onion
1 pound medium sized mushrooms
Cubed steak chunks.

Marinade meat chunks in Teriyaki sauce for about 30 minutes prior to adding corn to the BBQ.

Dice the peppers and onion into squares that are roughly the size of your meat cubes.

Remove meat from marinade, and pour leftover marinade into a small saucepan, and heat at medium high.  We are reducing it to thicken it up a bit (and cook out any raw meat juices !).

Load up the kabobs…I cap each end with one mushroom, and just alternate peppers, meat, and onions.

Flip the corn on the cobs, and move to outer edges of the grill.  You can spray/or coat the center of the grill with a wee bit of oil if it looks like it will stick…be careful since it will flame up when you do this.

Lay down the kabobs, and close lid…cook for about 4 minutes, then flip and cook for another 3 or 4 minutes.  By now your Teriyaki sauce has cooked down nicely, Brush each kabob on both sides with the sauce and grill for another couple of minutes.
