Nothing says summer like the smell of delicious food cooking on the grill. Steak, sausage, chicken, ribs, pork chops, shrimp, veggies – the grilling combinations are endless. Whether you are a grill master or just beginning, if you are looking for a new way to ace the grill this summer, sorghum – both syrup and grain – can elevate any grilling performance.
If you have never cooked with sorghum syrup, it is a natural sweetener similar to molasses with a dark color and rich flavor. Sorghum syrup is a unique ingredient to make delectable barbecue marinades and sauces. One of the especially great things about using sorghum syrup when grilling is that the syrup’s natural sugars caramelize during cooking to create a flavorful masterpiece. Whole and pearled grain sorghum can also be used in sides like stuffed peppers or grilled veggies to accompany your perfectly grilled meats.
Fire up the grill – it’s time to get cooking! We’ve gathered some finger-licking good sorghum recipes you can enjoy all summer long.
