In the summer time I love to BBQ, well I love my husband to BBQ . Even though it’s not summer quite yet, we had a beautiful weekend and so we knew BBQ was the way to go. We invited a couple over for dinner and knew that they’d love this.
We discovered this recipe a few years ago and it’s one that stuck; yes it’s that good that it will become a keeper. You can serve with a basic salad or jazz it up with your favorite summer side. I hope that this recipe becomes one that your family loves to make also.
The glaze would be excellent on any other type of meat. And the salsa is delicious with chips or paired with eggs.
