Grilling Week

ICA: Morimoto vs Cora vs Symon

The first ever Iron Chef Three-way!

Iron Chef AmericaThe branches of the United States military always work together to protect the country, but there also is an intense competitive spirit among the divisions of the armed forces. The Army, Navy and Marines move their rivalry to Kitchen Stadium and join forces with three Iron Chefs in the ultimate Military Grill Battle. Iron Chefs Morimoto, Symon and Cora travel to Hawaii where each will team with a well-seasoned cook from a different branch of the military.

At the scenic and historic Marine Base Hawaii at Kane’ohe Bay on the island of Oahu, the Iron Chefs and their military cohorts must cook to impress a tough panel of judges highlighting the usage of a world class grill and a bounty of Hawaiian ingredients in their culinary arsenal.

It’s good to see Cat Cora don her Iron Chef jacket one more (or is it one last?) time.  The judges for Battle: Ahi Tuna were Daniel Dae Kim, Sunny Anderson and Simon Majumdar

Check below for the outcome.

Memorial Day Recipes From Food Network

People across the country will uncover their grills this weekend for Memorial Day, but what food will they prepare? According to Food Network data, grilling trends differ depending on what part of the country you’ll be partying in this weekend.

Grilled Chicken Tostadas al Carbon with Grilled Tomatillos and Queso FrescoFor example, East Coasters are the top searchers for Grilled Chicken on, while BBQ Chicken leads the way in the West. There’s a difference? Yes. Although the two dishes share a common tool – the grill – Grilled Chicken is prepared relatively fast and at high temperatures and not prepared in BBQ sauce. Food Network has a couple examples of Grilled Chicken recipes that are hot this year: Grilled Chicken Tostadas; Chicken Satay; Marinated Chicken Breasts.

BBQ Chicken tops West Coast searchers and is really the exact opposite of Grilled Chicken. BBQ is a slow cook that uses smoldering and lower heat to achieve perfection and is lathered in the grill master’s favorite BBQ sauce.

Additionally, Food Network uncovered recipes exclusive to specific regions. Our data shows that Low Country Boil will headline Memorial Day parties in the South this weekend, while the Midwestern will be busting out the Black Bean Salsa.

Uncle Bill's Hamburger PattiesLastly, it’s not Memorial Day without burgers, which are trending country-wide thanks to National Burger Day on May 28th. data shows there is a homemade burger bun movement sweeping the country while the West Coast searches for decadent burger patties and the East prefers a twist on the classic burger – Hamburger Soup. Here are a few trending burger and homemade bun recipes from Food Network: Homemade Hamburger Buns; Bestest Hamburger Soup; Uncle Bill’s Hamburger Patties.

Now here’s one of my recipes.

The Beach Burger
Recipe Type: Main
Author: Stuart Reb Donald
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 20 mins
Total time: 40 mins
Serves: 3
  • The Beach Burger
  • 1 pound 85/15 Certified Black Angus ground chuck
  • 1 tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning
  • 3 standard hamburger buns or Keyser rolls
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 dozen Gulf oysters
  • 1 cup butter milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup masa harina
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • Cooking oil
  • Beach Rémoulade (2/3 cup tarter sauce, 1/3 cup cocktail sauce, 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, 1 dash Worcestershire sauce).
  1. In a large bowl combine the chuck with the Old Bay and mix thoroughly. Divide into three equal sized balls and form into patties adding salt and pepper to taste. Set aside while your grill comes to temperature. When grill is ready cook burgers as normal.
  2. While the burgers are cooking combine in a paper bag the cornmeal, masa & Cajun seasoning. Set aside. Whisk the egg with the buttermilk in a bowl to make an egg wash adding salt and pepper to taste. Drain the liquid from the oysters and drop them into the egg wash. Bring cooking oil to 375 degrees in a pot or deep fryer. Once you have removed the burgers to rest toast the buns and move oysters from the wash to the dredge (shaking off excess of both) and into the hot oil. Fry for roughly 2 minutes, turning as necessary.
  3. To assemble place a patty on the bottom of a toasted bun, then three oysters, a drizzle of Beach Burger Rémoulade and finally slather a healthy dollop of Beach Burger Rémoulade on the top bun. Serve with favorite burger condiments. The burger in the picture is served with a cheese grits timbale, salt & pepper fries and a lemon wedge garnish.
