75% of Americans own an outdoor grill or smoker1, and Father’s Day remains one of the most popular days to bbq. So let’s fire up the grill and heat things up with these Red Mountain recipes.

Grilled Steak Skewers

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of steak cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 3 zucchinis cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 1 red onion cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 3 bell peppers cut in 1-inch cubes
  • ½ tablespoon salt and pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • Zero calorie non-stick cooking spray

Directions

In a medium bowl, mix together garlic, salt, and pepper. Rub on meat and vegetables. Thread the 1-inch cubes onto skewers, alternating pieces with peppers, zucchinis, onion, and steak. Grill skewers over medium heat, turning often, for about 12-15 minutes, or until all meat is brown and tender.

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Ingredients

  • 2 cups riced, cooked cauliflower
  • 3 oz. cooked chicken (cubed)
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • Walden Farms BBQ sauce of choice
  • Zero calorie non-stick cooking spray

Directions

To rice the cauliflower, cut florets into chunks and pulse in a food processor until you see rice-like bits. Do not over process. Microwave the riced cauliflower in a bowl for 5-8 minutes. After microwaving, transfer riced cauliflower to a fine mesh strainer and drain completely, gently pressing out excess water. Transfer riced cauliflower to a clean dish towel and wrap the sides around the cauliflower while gently pressing out excess water. This drying process is important!
Cook chicken. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with zero calorie non-stick cooking spray. In a bowl, combine 2 cups riced, cooked cauliflower, 2 egg whites and any seasonings. Making sure everything is well mixed, and place your “dough” on the cookie sheet and pat out to 9″ round. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Add BBQ sauce and toppings to your cauliflower pizza. Place pizza under broiler for 1 to 2 minutes once you’ve added all of your healthy toppings.
