Italian Mixed Grill

Italian Mixed Grill

1/2 cup olive or vegetable oil
3 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves
2 teaspoons chopped fresh or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped

Mixed Grill

4 fresh Italian sausages (about 1 lb)
1/2 cup water
1 small onion, chopped (1/4 cup)
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs (about 1 1/4 lb)
1-lbs pork tenderloin sliced in steaks, about 1 inch thick

In small bowl, mix all Herbed Lemon Oil ingredients. Cover and let stand at least 1 hour to blend flavors.

In 2-quart microwavable casserole, place sausages, water and onion. Cover and microwave on High 5 minutes; rearrange sausages. Re-cover and microwave on Medium (50%) 5 to 7 minutes or until sausages are no longer pink in center. Remove sausages; discard onion and water.

Brush grill rack with vegetable oil. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Brush all sides of chicken, beef and sausages with oil mixture.

Grill meats uncovered over medium heat, brushing frequently with oil mixture and turning occasionally, for the following times: Grill pork 5 minutes. Add chicken and continue grilling. Grill pork 12 to 16 minutes or to desired doneness. Grill chicken 15 to 20 minutes or until juice is clear when center of thickest part is cut (170°). Add cooked sausages during the last 5 to 10 minutes of grilling to brown.

Tonight I’m serving with grilled assorted vegetables, small salad and fresh fruit compote.
