Nothing beats a juicy marinated skirt steak with grilled peach and mango chutney. The tropical flavors remind us of our favorite beach vacations.
These long, hot summer days call for tropical meals, and Keith has created one that I cannot stop thinking about. Inspired by the sweet island flavors of our recent Mexican vacation, Keith prepared this incredible Skirt Steak by marinating it with fresh herbs and topping it with a Grilled Peach and Mango Chutney. One bite and I was instantly transported back to paradise.
In the days since we left Mexico, I have dreamed of the deliciously simple meals made with fresh local fruits, vegetables and grilled meats. I miss the sweet stone fruits, freshly made guacamole, and the enticing smell of the barbecue at dinnertime. Nothing caps off a day at the beach like a flavorful light meal (enjoyed outside), a glass of good wine, and the company of my handsome man. Despite our desire to live like this every day, “real life” has pulled us in a different direction. So Keith’s cooking is often the means by which we can escape to far off places. What a trip this was. The peaches this time of year are finally sweet and juicy, and Keith grilled them to perfection. He combined them with fresh mango and cilantro, and served them over a juicy grilled skirt steak, which instantly reminded me of lunch at the beach. This kind of easy summer meal, served with a good glass of wine and even better company, is what life is all about. Ready to fire up that grill for more?
