What is a Mixed Grill?
The mixed grill is a fine dining restaurant entree favorite that offers diners a selection of different meats and cuts on a single plate, often each with their own sauce or side. Though they may look fancy in a restaurant, they’re surprisingly easy to make at home if you’ve got a couple of different game sausages and/or specialty meats on hand.
How to Make a Mixed Grill
1. Grill several different meats.
2. Serve them with different sauces and seasonings that compliment the flavor of each cut.
Of course, you don’t have to rely on sauces to impart extra flavor.
● Cuts can be seasoned simply with salt and pepper to allow their unique flavors to take center stage.
● Beef, bison, and most game meats can also be marinated (here’s a great oil marinade recipe).
● Pork, poultry, and wild boar can be brined (how to brine meat).
Try using different marinade & brining flavors to further vary your mixed grill.
