Thank you Dixie Cutting Boards for sponsoring this post.
Do you want to know how you can prep meat for the grill with minimal cleanup?
Then keep reading!
Our grill has an extra-large grilling surface, so whenever we fire up the grill, we use that space to grill a variety of meat for the week’s lunches and dinners.
Cooking several types of meat at once is a time saver for us. Having a variety of meat already prepared makes picking lunches and dinners during the busy week so much easier. While we love this habit, it does require some advanced planning.
A few days in advance, Germaine and I talk about what meats and vegetables we want to grill. We make sure to take them out of the freezer to thaw in the fridge before grill day.
On grill day, Germaine is in charge of getting the coals started. While he is outside in the sweltering heat, getting the grill to the perfect grilling temperature, I’m in the air-conditioned kitchen prepping the food.
We like to start early in the day whenever we grill. In South Carolina, it gets hot pretty fast during the summers, so we have to plan around the heat. My day starts with clearing the counters then filling them with prep dishes and cutting boards, but not today.
Today I’m using these Dixie Ultra™ Cutting Boards I found in the foil aisle at Walmart.
The Dixie Ultra™ Cutting Board offers a clean, fresh, cut-resistant cutting surface so that I can just toss the entire board in the trash when I’m done.
No prep dishes and cutting boards to wash!
So instead of having a bunch of dishes to wash I now Prep, Cut & Toss!
Dixie Ultra™ Cutting Boards feel like the Dixie Paper Plates, but with a cut-resistant surface. I can cut anything on the boards with my sharpest knives, and they hold up well.
The boards have two distinct primary colors I didn’t pay attention to at first, but they will be helpful in future meal prep. When setting out the cutting boards for my next meal prep, I may use the red ones for meat and the green for veggies. You don’t have to do it that way, but that makes sense to me, so that’s just what I’m going to do.
Tip: When mapping out your meal prep surfaces, use the red outlined boards for meat and the green for veggies to keep things visually organized.
What makes them make even more sense for our summer grilling is that I can carry the cutting boards out to the grill. After everything is on the grill everything, I just toss the cutting boards in the outdoor trash can. No more carrying all of the prep dishes outside and then having to bring them all back in.
Dixie Ultra™ Cutting Boards come in a pack of ten and a pack of twenty. The ten count packs are located in the foil aisle at Walmart. The twenty count packs are currently only available on Walmart.com.
