Propane for home. Propane for business. Propane for camping. Propane for fleet fueling. Propane for space heating. Propane for lighting. Propane for grilling. Propane for life.
What if we spent an entire blog writing things like that? It’s an interesting thought, but it’s not an activity that we could reasonably justify as a good use of our time. Something we could qualify as a good use of our time is talking about what kind of propane company we are here at DiSanto. The long and the short of it is that we are an Upstate New York propane distributor that fourth-generation, family-owned, and has been around since 1937. That’s before WWII, before we walked on the moon, before the internet, before Billie Jean King — before all of it. Our 81 years of experience has lent us a unique perspective on the industry as a whole. We have seen other suppliers come and go, which leads us to make this observation: If a propane company is going to stand the test of time, it better be committed to taking care of its customers. A cornerstone principle at DiSanto Propane, we do our best to continue to grow in terms of the quality of our propane services. Whether you are talking about accurate and punctual propane delivery, installation, and repair, automatic delivery scheduling, service protection plans, GasCheck certified technicians, or even 24-hour emergency service, we’ve got you covered at DiSanto Propane.
Grilling Ideas From DiSanto Propane
But today’s post does not concern, at least primarily, our propane services here at DiSanto. Rather, it concerns offering up some late summer grilling recipes, as the title no doubt already gave away! That being said, if you are interested in getting some inspiration before you shut down your trusty propane grill for the year, we just might have the blog for you. Find some great grilling ideas below!
Marinated Tuna Steak
This is a marinade for tuna that you won’t want to forget anytime soon. Get some lemon juice, olive oil, soy sauce, and orange juice — along with some spices like oregano, garlic, pepper, and parsley — and let your tuna steaks soak up all the goodness for a while. We’d recommend longer than 30 minutes for ideal flavor, but not everyone has that kind of time lying around, so do what you can! Either way, you’ll love the taste of these steaks, just make sure you don’t overcook the tuna! 5 minutes on the grill should be enough.
“WOW!!! This tuna steak was insanely good. I followed the recipe exactly, except I pan seared the tuna for 3 minutes on each side instead of grilling it. I let the steaks marinade for 2 hours and then rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before cooking it. The fish came out awesome, so juicy and wonderfully tasty – I loved it (and I don’t even like fish). I will make this again and again and again. Thanks Carin!” – Boginia2
Chipotle Honey Ribs
Ribs are wonderful whether you buy your barbecue sauce from the store or you want to make it yourself, so long as you know what you are doing on the grill. This particular recipe involves making your own sauce, which includes Guinness beer, Dijon mustard, chopped chipotle peppers, garlic, honey, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and a few other ingredients to round it off. We happened to use this BBQ recipe for our own ribs just the other night, and we can confirm its deliciousness. Make sure you carve out enough time (several hours) to be able to go slowly and carefully. If you do, you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
“Great recipe idea! Used chicken instead of ribs and tweaked the recipe using ingredients I had on hand: Whiskey instead of beer and mustard powder instead of dijon. I used a store brand smokey honey BBQ sauce. Yum!!!” – ejshellabarger
Herbed Butternut Squash
If you love the savory deliciousness of butternut squash, you really need to try this recipe out. It takes some oregano, salt, pepper, thyme, and olive oil — so it’s much healthier than many of the other recipes we tend to recommend! Not only is this a healthy recipe, but it doesn’t take much time either. Total prep time will be in the range of 30 minutes, it makes 6 servings, and it tastes wonderful!
“We love squash and have it often. This was very good. We cook with olive oil, so this was a good recipe for us. I will make it again. Thanks.” – Mamamarie
Balsamic Grilled Tofu Recipe With Cauliflower Cilantro Rice And Avocado
Alright, we thought we would throw the vegetarian contingent of our readership a bone here. Wait, there’s got to be a better way to phrase that. Anyway, we aren’t the biggest fans of tofu in the world (it’s the texture, and the taste, in case you were wondering), but we can’t ignore the fact that this dish certainly sounds pretty good. We like avocado, we like cauliflower, cilantro, and grilled things — so maybe it’s not that bad!
You’ll need some garlic, mayo, lime juice, sriracha sauce, balsamic vinegar, and a few other ingredients to make this dish. It serves four and doesn’t take too much time to throw together! Yum.
Pork Chops Stuffed With Smoked Gouda And Bacon
No grilling idea blog would be complete without at least one recipe that includes pork as its centerpiece. At least, no blog written by DiSanto Propane would be complete! You’ll need bacon, parsley, Gouda cheese, salt, pepper, and olive oil for this stuffed pork chop recipe. It takes less than an hour to prepare, makes 2 servings, and tastes great to boot! If you have a date you are trying to impress, this might be the ticket!
Nikki loved this recipe, but found that using boneless centercuts instead of chops was her preferred method.
“Ok, so I use this website almost every day, but I’ve never felt compelled to write a review…that is until I made this recipe!!! Sooooo fantastic! Now I tweaked it a bit. I used thick boneless centercuts instead of chops. Gruyere instead of gouda and added diced, skinless apple to the mix. I seasoned the chops with a little salt, pepper, and spicy mustard. Heated up an indoor grill and seared them for 7 minutes each side, then broiled them for 3 minutes after topping them with the remaining filling. My boyfriend went crazy over them!!!” – Nikki
You can get as fancy as you like with your grilling techniques and recipes, but at the end of the day, maybe the best thing about grilling your food is that it brings out the wonderful, simple flavors that each food has to offer. This recipe, by Larry Lampert, is easy and clean. Get some asparagus, a grill, olive oil, along with your trusty companions salt and pepper.
As Larry himself puts it, “The special thing about this recipe is that it’s so simple. Fresh asparagus with a little oil, salt, and pepper is cooked quickly over high heat on the grill. Enjoy the natural flavor of your veggies.”
