It's not too late to enjoy barbecued steaks.

PACIFIC PALATE – Don Genova

Get cheeky with your cuts of meat

Still want to barbecue in the last days of summer but you’ve blown your budget for expensive steaks?

Try marinating, or braising then grilling, cheaper cuts of beef. Sirloin tip is a great alternative to T-bone or New York strip steaks. Give it a quick marinade; my favourite is a combo of lime juice, Worcestershire, some cumin and chipotle chile powder.

Grill to medium and cut in thin strips to serve. Less than medium and you might find it a bit mushy. Or ask your butcher for some beef cheeks, or short ribs. I braise them in a rich Asian-style liquid, then grill them to make them crisp. Visit this link on my blog for a couple of recipe suggestions.
