Two-Chili Beef Pot Roast with Roasted SalsaPot roast on the barbecue is easy and delicious. Take the heat out of the kitchen by turning your barbecue into an oven by using the indirect heat method. Heat is placed either to one side or to both sides of the food allowing for even heat and cooking. This barbecue braising method is perfect for cuts of beef that require a longer cooking time.
Shawarma Inspired BBQ Beef with Cauliflower Slaw and Tahini SpreadShawarma is a dish in Middle Eastern cuisine consisting of meat cut into thin slices, stacked in a cone-like shape, and roasted on a slowly-turning vertical rotisserie or spit.

Marinade Marvels for Marinating SteaksSpice up summer meals with go-to grilling marinades. A marinade usually contains acidic ingredients, like lemon juice or vinegar, that break down proteins and work as liquid tenderizers. A great marinade coats, flavours and helps keep beef moist. These all-purpose and simple marinades make everything better.
Grilled Flank Steak and Puttanesca SaladAndrea Buckett Cooks created this delicious steak recipe which incorporates all the flavours we love about "puttanesca" into a summer fresh salad. The steak is grilled with only salt and pepper then gets a “reverse rub” after it comes off the grill. This means the flavours of the rub get to shine and aren’t dimmed by charring on the BBQ. The flank steak doesn’t need to be marinated to be tender. You simply have to cut it in thin slices against the grain. This is a brilliant recipe chocked-full of flavour and perfect to feed a crowd.
Brazilian Grilled Picanha with Fresh SaladThe beauty of this famous Brazilian grilled steak dish is its simplicity…it’s all about the beef!

To complement the slices of grilled picanha, try this fresh, colouful vegetable salad. In summer, field vegetables are at their tastiest, but this salad has been designed to be just as delicious using Canadian hothouse gems, grown year-round.

Campfire Coffee RubThis rub works great with thick, tender and juicy steak cuts from the top sirloin, rib or strip loin.

Barbecoa-style BurgersThis burger recipe was inspired by a team of Mexican chefs that were hosted at the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence. We recommend using Medium Ground Beef for best flavour. If using Lean or Extra Lean, add in a tablespoon or so of butter, cream or minced bacon to enhance flavour. Sauté the onion and garlic to incorporate into the patty better than if added uncooked. If you can find Ancho Sauce in the grocery store, that can substitute for the chipotle peppers in adobo sauce.

Beef “Lollipops” with Cantaloupe SaladServe with the suggested salad or just serve as beef bites with the reserved dressing as a dipping sauce.
