I’ll bet you’ve never grilled rhubarb. Well, I hadn’t either until recently when I listened to an interview with Tinky Weisblat, author of Love, Laughter, and Rhubarb. She was talking about the versatility of rhubarb as an ingredient in not only pies but cocktails, appetizers, and main courses, and at one point she mentioned that rhubarb can be grilled.
Who knew? I thought I’d give it a try.

In a previous post, I wrote about the two types of skirt steak—outside skirt steak and inside skirt steak—and showed an example of grilling inside skirt steak with a spicy Korean marinade on my Weber Summit 450 gas grill.
In that post, I casually mentioned that both cuts of skirt steak can be a very long piece of meat (especially the more desirable outside skirt steak) and that it can be advantageous to cut it into smaller pieces before marinating and grilling.
I wanted to show you an example of a really long piece of outside skirt steak, one that I bought recently at a quality butcher counter here in San Jose. Continue reading Skirt Steak: Part 2
