From George Foreman, two-time heavy-weight champion of the world and one of the greatest salesmen of all time, his cookbook written specifically for his fabulous, indoor grills.
From dorm rooms and first apartments to suburban homes and four-star restaurants, the George Foreman grill is one of America's most popular small kitchen appliances. As a world-class athlete and father of ten, George Foreman is focused on fresh, healthy foods that keep him and his family strong. Between kids, careers, and a heavyweight training schedule, the Foremans are a big, constantly-in-motion family. Getting dinner on the table could be an endurance event, but instead of going ten rounds in the kitchen, George Foreman has perfected fast and easy, and he passes on his strategy in George Foreman's Indoor Grilling Made Easy.
Here are more than 100 recipes that speak to the reason everyone buys the indoor grill in the first place: easy dishes filled with big, bold flavor for healthy food fast. From breakfast foods to snacks, entrées, side dishes, and even desserts made on the grill, this is food to satisfy the young, the not-so-young, and everyone in between. Most recipes are naturally lower in carbohydrates (after all, George is a carnivore of some note), but some have choice carbs to fuel heavy training days.
In addition to the recipes, there are plenty of flavor-enhancing ideas—marinades, spice rubs, and sauces—for simple cuts of fish, beef, pork, and chicken. You'll also find insider info on how to make perfect grilled veggies every time. George Foreman's Indoor Grilling Made Easy even includes finger foods for a party and a Thanksgiving dinner made on the grill. Portions feed a family of four but can easily be downsized for those living on their own (or doubled for Foreman-sized families).
Foreman's "Lean Mean Grilling Machine" is one of the fastest, most simple ways to cook dinner: the grill cooks both sides of the food at once and can be cleaned with a damp sponge or paper towel. Its simplicity makes it a natural for beginning cooks, and this cookbook speaks directly to that audience, with introductory notes explaining that measuring cups and spoons "really do take the guesswork out of following a recipe" and recipes for dishes that, for the most part, can be made in three steps. The food is alluring--Chipotle Burgers with Avocado; Sesame-Scented Asparagus; Creamy Dijon Lamb Chops--and low-maintenance, and Foreman intersperses anecdotes throughout about his kids and their food preferences, his penchant for "a good strategy" (he maps out the week's dinners ahead of time) and other tidbits about life in the Foreman household. This book should appeal to those sharing Foreman's easy attitude toward cooking.
