Fresh vs. Frozen Meat for Your Grilling Session

Fresh vs. Frozen Meat for Your Grilling Session

In the age of convenience, frozen foods are almost necessary. Now you can come home late from a busy day at the office and grill up a frozen steak in less than 45 minutes. No planning required, and a happy belly. Some of the frozen foods are better than “fresh” meat! For example, some fish can sit at meat markets for up to three weeks. But frozen fish come straight from the ocean into the blast freezer, and still have outstanding flavor! So let’s compare fresh and frozen meat, and see which is right for your dinner table.

Best Ways to Grill Pork Medallions

Best Ways to Grill Pork Medallions

Pork might not be one of the sexiest meats out there when compared to something like a grilled steak, but if it’s cooked properly it can be just as delicious, if not even better. Like all great meats, pork has been a staple in people’s diets, just like beef and chicken, for as long as we can remember. So if you’re looking to spice up your pork game, it’s time for us to introduce you to mouth-watering grilled pork tenderloin medallions. We’ll show you how to cook them properly, grill them up, and savor them as the dish they were always meant to be.


Pork tenderloin, also known as pork fillet or Gentleman’s Cut, is a long, thin cut of pork coming from the eye of the loin. Pork medallions are lean, tender cuts from the tenderloin. We think they are perfect for midweek meals due to their affordable price tag while still remaining incredibly tasty!


Not only is pork tenderloin relatively inexpensive, but it is also one of the healthier cuts of meat. Alongside skinless chicken breast, pork tenderloin qualifies as “extra lean” by USDA guidelines, boasting only 3 grams of fat per 3-ounce serving size. It is also rich in protein, thiamine, vitamin B6, phosphorus, niacin, riboflavin, potassium, and zinc.

The World of Grilla Grills: Explore the Jungle

The World of Grilla Grills: Explore the Jungle

Grilla Grills is the brand of grills made to help you explore the jungle of cookin’. Founded by two fishing buddies one day while grilling over a wood pellet grill, Grilla has become a well-known name in the grilling world. In 2010, they started with their pellet grills, which was a type of grill not previously well-known in the market. They made the pellet “cool” and approachable, bringing that rich smokiness into their clients’ lives. Since then, they’ve also designed a charcoal kamado for a faster and higher-temperature cook, adding rich flavor to even grill-baked items.
