Cilantro Lime Grilled Sweet Potatoes and Peppers

Danielle Walker's Against all Grain | Grilled Sweet Potatoes

They’re tossed in lime juice and olive oil before being grilled and the light smokiness from the grill and poblano peppers balances the acidity nicely. The sprinkling of goat cheese at the end is optional, but it finishes the dish… Read more »


Grilled Flank Steak with Cilantro Balsamic Marinade

Balsamic Cilantro Flank Steak | Danielle Walker's Against all Grain

This grilled flank steak is full of flavor from the bold marinade of balsamic vinegar, shallots, and cilantro. The long marinating time not only allows the meat to soak up the flavors but also helps to make it more tender. We served it with grilled sweet potatoes and poblano peppers (recipe coming Wednesday)! I’ve been slowly… Read more »
