During this time of year and if it’s Friday night, you’re going to find me on the back porch, likely with a fire going in the chiminea and something on the grill.
My favorite thing about the grill, aside from the scent and sizzle, is the variety of options you can cook outside. Not only do we grill our protein for almost every meal but most of our side dishes as well.
So far this year, I’ve grilled zucchini, baby portobello mushrooms, asparagus, squash, eggplant, green beans and onions.
These Grilled Dijon Onion Rings are amazing with steak. Grilling them gives the onions a smoky sweetness that is a wonderful complement to a rich steak.
Grilled Dijon Onion Rings
3 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 Tbs lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp lemon rind, cut into 1-inch julienned strips
2 sweet onions (such as Noonday), cut into 1/4-inch slices
Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Whisk Dijon mustard, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, thyme and lemon rind in a small bowl until well-combined.
Brush one side of the onion slices with some of the mustard mixture. Place the onion slices mustard-side down in a grill pan/basket/griddle.
Grill for about 5 minutes on the first side, while you baste the other side with the remaining mustard mixture. Turn once, and grill for another 5 minutes. Remove from the grill, and serve immediately.
