Grilling asparagus used to be quite a challenge not to lose those spears into the grill or have them shrivel, dry out, and blacken. GrillGrates solves the problem and elevates grilling asparagus to an artform.
Here's the Easy Formula for Grilling Asparagus with GrillGrate:
- Prepare by putting asparagus in a flat dish, coat with olive oil and cracked pepper
- Place on hot GrillGrates across the rails as shown above
- Using The GrateTool, lift 1/2 or 1/3 of the stalks and hold them with your free hand and flip them over. You may want to invite your guests to watch you deftly handle this part!
- Use The GrateTool to lift and plate after 5-7 minutes on the grill
This one minute video demonstrates the technique. See GrillGrates and The GrateTool take center stage with Asparagus! Our neighbor Suzanne calls the money shot! I love spring!
PS- Here's Meatheads ode to asparagus and a great recipe to try.
