George Foreman's Indoor Grilling Made Easy: More Than 100 Simple, Healthy Ways to Feed Family and Friends
on 1 May 2012
I purchased a new George Foreman grill recently at a very attractive price, even lower than the same model offered by Amazon. It was a spontaneous purchase which was largely decided by the grill's attractive 'plum' colour and its overall simplistic design. I have a conventional gas grill but I thought a small, efficient, electric grill would be easier to use and to keep clean. This has proven to be the case.
I now have 3 George Foreman books covering grilling ('indoor barbecuing' as George Foreman likes to refer to it) and true barbecuing (outdoor grilling) and the book: 'George Foreman's Indoor Grilling Made Easy - More Than 100 Simple, Healthy Ways to Feed Family and Friends', is basically a recipe book which I purchased secondhand and therefore cheaply.
I find this book the least useful of the 3 because it contains recipes for meals that I am unlikely ever to cook. However, that is not to say the book is worthless, far from it because it provides typical cooking times for foodstuffs which can dramatically differ from those found on food wrappers. This distinction is a terribly important point to remember.
Now that I consider myself an experienced George Foreman grill user I now realise that experimentation plays a big part in using this type of small 'clamshell' grill. It is difficult to overcook a meal with a George Foreman grill although my first attempt at grilling fish steaks was not a brilliant success. The value of this book was to emphasise that cooking times are greatly reduced in most cases making meal preparation both quicker and cheaper.
I still get a kick out of using this grill and this book aids me with my experimentation.
