Grill Pans That Will Have Your Cooking Rocks!
Grill Pans is the absolute best way to cook outdoor grilling. I know that this might sound like an exaggeration but it is not. The fact of the matter is that without a grill pan you will find grilling to be very difficult indeed. Whether its hot dogs, steaks or burgers there is nothing quite like the crispiness that only a good grill pan can bring to your cooking adventure.
Grill Pans comes in all shapes and sizes from circular to rectangular to square and more. There is no doubt that the price of these items will vary widely, but they are absolutely essential to a successful grilling session. Without a sturdy and flat surface your cooking efforts will be very tough to manage.
Some of the more expensive grill pans also have a good nonstick coating that makes cleaning a lot easier. If you are going to use a grill pan to cook with you will also need some type of a non-stick pan handle. The most popular is the cast iron one but anything will work as long as it is non-stick. Just be sure to keep in mind that a flat surface will produce the most even cooking which will make for tastier food. Grilling on a flat surface is a lot like cooking on a grill. Just like cooking on a grill you want to move the food towards the hot coals so that it cooks evenly.
When buying grill pans you will notice that each has their own unique design and characteristics. The trick to choosing the correct one for you is to identify what features you need and how much space is available. Some of the more expensive models will come with some very nice non-stick interiors and ridges. These ridges are excellent for browning meat and preventing it from sticking to the pan.
You will find a couple different kinds of cookware that will do a great deal of things for you. If you are looking for a good way to brown meat then you will definitely want to look into some nice cast iron grill pans. You can cook all types of meat in these. You can even use them to cook corn on the cob if that is your desire. However, you need to be careful when using these because they are really hot. They can easily burn if you are not careful.
Another kind of useful grill pan is the frying pan. A frying pan is made to go directly on the hot grill. There are two types of these. The first kind that you see in the road grill restaurants is made out of metal that is slanted towards the heat. They are a little bit smaller than the cast iron pans.
The other kind is made out of cast iron that is flat and slightly slanted so that the heat can rise up and circulate properly. Both of these kinds of grill pans are great for preparing some of the best grilled food that you have ever tasted. I am not sure about you but my favorite meal that is cooked on a grill is steak on the grill. It has just the right amount of taste. And if you have ever tried to make this yourself you know that it is not always easy to successfully cook a steak on the flat surface of a grill.
Some people will use barbecue sauce to cover their steaks but I prefer to let the sauce do its work instead of trying to keep my steak from burning. I can admit that once in a while you will get burnt but as long as you are able to remove the grill marks and the sauce is not too hot then you will be okay. You will also notice that if you are trying to make some grilled foods on a hot grill with the grill lines will blister and that is a problem that you do not have to live with. These grill pans are a must have for anyone who wants to enjoy good cooking and healthy meals.
