    Help With COOKING On George Foreman Grill..

    I just got a George Foreman grill for Valentine's Day from my girlfriend. I dont really understand how the damn thing works and what I can make on it! Help me out guys... I am guessing that you can make steak and chicken and sausage and eggs and things like that while the grease falls into the little tray right?

    let it heat up, (wait for the orange light to go off) put the meat on the grill, close top. Grease etc will flow throught the grooves into little plastic pan, which is put under the front of grill. Meat is done cooking whener you think it looks good.

    What are some good choices for foods to make? Lean steak and beef, hamburgers I guess, chicken obviously.. anything else?

    I make chicken all the time in my dorm room (never makes the fire alarm go off, hehe) I've made hamburegrs and steaks too. It cooks them good, but if i had to choose between a real grill and the formen, i like how a real grill cooks better. But the foreman is fast! One thing with chicken is that it may have a slight "cooked skin" where it's a bit tougher than the rest of the chicken. Once you make chicken for the first time, you'll see what i mean. I've never tried eggs or anything else like foremans book shows.

    Slim Schaedle-
    Thanks bro. Yeah I will probably stick to making chicken and steak and things like that. One thing that I was wondering about was how do you season your chicken and lean steak to actually make it taste GOOD! What kind of beef? Eye of round?

    I season the chicken two ways: Either put a few cuts in it, and pour the marinade, spices, whatever into them.. or do a butterfly cut (cut in half horizontal but for the very edge, resembles a butterfly when spread open) and put the spices/marinades, whatever inside. Do this the last minute or less of cooking, otherwise I find it just sorta runs out.

    As to what kind of meat and all that, it doesn't matter. Just cook whatever you like.

    I think it would be easier to just cook eggs in a pan, I use my foreman mainly for chicken and steak.

    Cook with George Foreman grill? Dont people buy those so they dont have to cook? I have an old school white one, not one of the new fangled 'igrills'

    You can cook anything in there, I recommend putting slits in your food, it cooks a bit faster that way.

    Mrs Dash is great beacuse its just spices, no salt or crap like that.
