(Family Features) - Choose the correct statement:
  • Grilling is a simple way to cook.
  • Grilling is the most all-American culinary activity.
  • Grilling adds lots of flavor to foods while adding no calories.
  • Grilling makes an instant good-time outdoor party.

If you chose "all of the above!" get ready to fire up the grill!

Since Man discovered fire, we've had a passionate love affair with grilling. And no one has perfected this culinary tradition like Americans. Since the average grill can turn out enough food for a crowd, when it comes time to throw a party, easy grilling is much appreciated.

What to grill? To make mouths water, just mention "grilling" and "steak" in the same sentence. Beef is by far the most popular meat for grilling in backyards across America, and steak is prized above all. Grilled steak for a crowd can be filet, strip, ribeye or T-bone - there's a steak for every appetite.

To treat your guests to from-the-grill steaks with real steakhouse flavor, look for perfectly marbled, premium quality Angus beef from Sutton & Dodge. Angus cattle, raised under careful specifications, can be counted on for steaks that are consistent in flavor and tenderness.

Created exclusively for SuperTarget, Sutton & Dodge Angus steaks and roasts provide the flavor and quality of a traditional steakhouse experience at home. Whether enjoying kabobs, filet mignon, a hearty T-bone, strip, ribeye or roast, these Angus beef products deliver taste satisfaction usually only found when dining out. Meal planning is simple with this premium beef offered in a variety of family packs - perfect for a crowd!

And when it's time to heat the grill, here are some delicious tips for grilling steak from Thermos Grills:

  • Plan ahead: Always preheat your grill!
  • Apply seasoning, whether salt and pepper or a rub of various herbs and spices, before grilling.
  • Take the "fridge chill" off steak by letting it sit for up to 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Grill steaks over medium high heat for browning, which adds flavor and eye appeal.
  • Judging doneness can be learned through experience; if you're a beginner, use a meat thermometer (160°F for well done).
  • As a rule of thumb, 10 to 12 minutes on medium high will cook a steak rare, 12 to 14 minutes will cook a steak rare to medium and 14 to 18 minutes will cook a steak well to well done.
  • Let steaks rest for 5 to 10 minutes after removing from the grill; this allows juices to redistribute for a nice 'n' juicy steak. If cut too soon, juices will run from steak.
  • Remember that a steak will continue to cook while it is resting.

Choose your steaks, chill the drinks and heat the grill. Let the party begin!

Skinny tips for great grilling

Savory meals from the grill can be both delicious and nutritious. Tips for planning lean and healthful menus featuring beef come from Dr. Susan Mitchell, registered dietitian and nutrition expert for SuperTarget:

  • Lean toward "loin." Look for the word "loin" or "round" on beef packaging. These words are your clue to beef cuts high in taste and low in fat.
  • Palm your portion. In general, the size of your palm approximates the amount of meat that's the right portion for your body size.
  • Let savory flavors rule. Use marinades, rubs and sauces that are low-fat flavor boosters. Sutton & Dodge offers a world of flavors in rub and marinade products.
  • Fresh is key for food safety. Sutton & Dodge uses new packaging technology, which keeps meat fresher longer in the refrigerator than conventionally wrapped meat.
  • Add color for nutrition, eye and taste appeal. Make kabobs with lean beef and add fruits and veggies. Host a "cook your own kabob" party by offering cubes of steak and a colorful array of vegetables cut for kabobs. Cherry tomatoes, summer squash, onion, colored bell peppers - all offer color, taste and nutrition.
  • Finish off your menu with fruit from the grill. Pineapple, peaches, nectarines, plums, even pitted cherries can be grilled briefly to enhance their natural sweetness. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream. The beauty of grilled fruit is its intense sweetness.
