Weber Honey delivers extra sugar against a familiar bold barbecue flavor that maybe becomes a tad too sweet for some tastes after being grilled.

Grilled Mushroom Larb

Mushroom Larb

I've been on a mission to learn how to cook Thai food really well in order to get what's coming out of my kitchen to taste pretty close to what I experienced in Thailand when I visited a couple years ago. So far things have been going well and I've been happy with how dishes like nam tok have turned out, plus a number of other non-grilled things that don't get blog posts to link to. I do still have a number of recipes I've worked on to share though, and one of the highlights on this journey I'm currently on has been this mushroom larb.

Grilled Skirt Steak and Tomato Salad

Steak and Tomato Salad

Sadly, the end of tomato season is upon us. There's likely just a week or two left to get the best, juiciest, and sweetness tomatoes you can until about 10 months from now when this magical time of year begins again. I decided I needed to really go for gold in this last dash to finish line, so decided to make a salad primarily of tomatoes. While at the farmer's market though, I kept grabbing more and more things to add to the dish and I ended up with this grilled skirt steak and tomato salad that was still very tomato centric, but was hearty enough to be an entire meal.

A peach component mixes with tomato to amp up the fruitiness of the sauce, which pairs really nicely with a wave of heat, strong tang, and mellow smokiness to make this a well layered and balanced product.

Grilled Scallion-wrapped Mochi

Scallion-wrapped Mochi

I couldn't wait to make bacon-wrapped mochi earlier this year and have all my friends enjoy this soft, salty, and chewy treat that I already knew was amazing. Not to leave vegetarians out in the experience, I also made a version that wrapped the mochi in scallions instead of bacon, and the the oddest thing happened—just about everyone preferred the scallion version. I wasn't planning on sharing this on the blog, so at the time of cooking, I didn't take much care in presentation for photographs, but since it was the clear favorite, it seemed silly of me not to do a post on this variation as well, no matter how it looked in pictures.
