The Steaks Are High: 3 Must-Try Twists On Your Favorite Grilling Recipes

Firing up the grill outside, throwing on some steaks or burgers and enjoying a cold beer — it doesn't get much better than outdoor cookouts and BBQs. Although we're big fans of the standard burgers, hot dogs and chicken breasts, we have some delicious recipes that can totally up your grilling game. 

Whether you're serving a crowd at a big outdoor party, or looking to cook up a fun family dinner, these recipes take your favorites to a whole new level. Instead of heading to your favorite restuarant, try creating these recipes at home with your loved ones. Serve with  onion rings, french fries or your favorite side dish. 

A good grilling recipe starts with a good cut of meat. For all of these, Celebrations contributor Becky Hardin used Stock Yards steaks and burgers, and really went the extra mile to complement the rich, juicy flavors with gourmet toppings, homemade sauces and fresh ingredients.


Instead of a regular cheeseburger, try her Loaded Cowboy Burgers. Topped with avocado, bacon, cheese, onion rings (!!!) and a homemade spicy BBQ mayo, these are impressive grilling recipes that leave the local drive-through burger in the dust.  

For a fun kebab that's perfect to serve at an outdoor party or when you're hanging out with your family, try these Steak Skewers with CIlantro Pesto. Made with tenderloin cubes from Stock Yards, these babies are grilled to perfection alongside bell peppers and mushrooms. The homemade cilantro pesto really makes it special.

Up your grilled steak game with this New York Strip Steak with Balsamic Reduction. Forget that store-bought marinade you've been using; this homemade balsamic reduction is super easy to whip up, and really complements the flavors of the steak.
