Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Quick and easy meals

I am looking for some quick and easy meal ideas. What are some of your favorites?

    One I like to do is carne asada. I usually get flap mear from the local Mexican market and do a marinade. After marinaded, depending on how much time I have, I cook direct at about 500 and due to marinade dripping into the fire I open vent after that. 2-4 minutes a side and great tacos.

    sausages with peppers and onions.  While the egg is heating up, I can chop up the veggies.  You can cook the veggies ion a griddle or in a basket on the egg while sausages are cooking.

    Nothing is easier than a pork loin roast, indirect. Plug in the Mav making it a "set it and forget it" cook. Also the frozen twice bakers can go around it and will be done at about the same time. Veggie is usually a big mixed green salad.

    Don't use the egg for quick and easy meals.  Takes to long to get going.  That is what the old gasser is for.

    Thanks for all the comments you all are making me hungry. I have been working a lot of overtime recently and was just trying to find something I could cook quickly after I get off work.

    If by gas, you mean gas stove/range, then yes I agree.

    Know what you mean - I use the gasser for hot dogs for the grandkids, they don't like them boiled. Hot dogs do not qualify as a meal, IMHO.
    When SWMBO wants a chicken breast slathered in BBQ sauce, the gasser has it done before the egg is even up to heat. 
    The side burner on the gasser has a stir fry done before I even have the electric starter out of the egg.... To me it doesn't make sense to stir fry on the egg unless you are doing a number of dishes. To each his own....

    To cut down on time, prep the egg so that it is ready to lite when you get home.  A weed burner may be a good option for you.  As soon as you get home, hit the coals with that for a few minutes.  Then go inside and by the time you come out with your food you'll have a hot egg.

    Pick up some stuffed salmon filets at your grocery store seafood market. Publix has a great recipe.

    Fire up the egg and get the temp to about 350. Time wise, it should take about two beers. Maybe three depending on how your day went.

    The filets come in an aluminum pan, just take the plastic top off and put in the egg. 15 minutes and they're cooked to perfection. Seal up the egg and you'll save the rest of your charcoal.

    Serve with a pack of Uncle Ben's 90 second wild rice. Fast, virtually no prep time, and will taste better than a plain old stove.
