Grilled Carne Asada is one of the ultimate grill recipes. It’s because the skirt steak turns out so tender, juicy and flavorful after marinating and just a short time on the grill. To make, simply marinate the steak for an hour or more, then grill for less than 10 minutes, and dinner is ready! We typically serve in low-carb tortillas or lettuce wraps along with a few of our favorite toppings. Click here for the recipe.
Grilled tomatoes with burrata cheese are such a yummy twist on caprese salad. When grilled, the tomatoes turn tender with a sweet-smoky flavor. And the soft burrata cheese seems to melt in your mouth along with the grilled tomatoes. We love topping the two with a simple vinaigrette made of extra-virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, mustard, and salt and pepper. It’s a simple summer grill recipe that takes less than 15 minutes to make. Click here for the recipe.
These chicken souvlaki skewers burst with Greek flavor since they’re marinated in olive oil, garlic, oregano, rosemary and lemon juice. They’re also one of our favorite grilled chicken recipes. Making the chicken souvlaki is quick and easy. Depending on how much time you have, you can marinate the chicken shortly before grilling (we recommend marinating for at least 20 minutes) or as early as the night before. Once on the grill, the skewers cook in less than 10 minutes. Click here for the recipe.

Each burger with toppings is just a few net carbs. Click here for the recipe.
Here is a new favorite broccoli recipe -- grilled broccoli steaks with bagna cauda. Broccoli steaks turn deliciously tender and crisp on the grill and become even tastier when topped with savory bagna cauda. If you haven’t had bagna cauda before, it’s a warm sauce made with olive oil, garlic and anchovies and is typically served with veggies. If you’re unsure of whether you’ll like anchovies in the bagna cauda, you will! They simply add a salty, umami-flavor to the dish that's delicious. Click here for the recipe.
