Do you love to grill?

Here in the California Bay Area, we are completely spoiled.

There, I said it.

Compared to most of the country, our weather is pretty temperate. In our family, that means we use our grill all year round, often 2-3 times a week.

When I was given the opportunity to try Kraft’s new Evergriller Grill ‘N’ Flip Mitt, I knew this was the perfect opportunity for my son to help me with a post. He loves to grill. How many kids do you know who read grill cook books for fun?

The Evergriller Grill ‘N’ Flip Mitt is a specially designed, fire-resistant grilling glove that protects the griller’s hands from both the heat of the grill and the chill of the outdoors during winter grilling season. The unique design of the top insert can hold many grill tools, making it easy to flip, stab, and baste with ease and precision.

This mitt makes grilling both easy and safe for myson, and that is really important to us.

My son and I thought about what kind of balanced meal we should make for dinner. We received an assortment of Kraft Barbecue Sauces (Original, Sweet Honey, and Hickory Smoke.) Kraft sauces have just recently been reformulated with high quality ingredients including tomatoes, sweet molasses, cider vinegar and cane sugar.

No more high fructose corn syrup. New Kraft Barbecue Sauce is available in eight varieties across smoky, sweet and spicy flavors: Original, Hickory Smoke, Sweet Honey, Mesquite Smoke, Sweet Brown Sugar, Sweet & Spicy, Spicy Honey, and Thick & Spicy. My son and I decided to grill a flank steak with the Sweet Honey Barbecue Sauce. This sauce has a tangy honey sweet taste that would pair well with our family’s famous coleslaw recipe.

We took it to the next level and put a little twist to traditional tacos by creating barbecue tacos!

We used the spatula tool in the Evergriller to flip the flank steak.

After basting the Kraft Honey Sweet Barbecue Sauce on the steak, we grilled it for 8 minutes per side so the steak would be medium rare.

We pulled the steak off the grill onto a plate and covered it with aluminum foil. We allowed it to rest for 5 minutes. This meat is perfect and ready to be made into tacos.

We are going to top our barbecue tacos with our family’s special coleslaw recipe.

  1. Yes, I agree! You are spoiled! 🙂 Living in Minnesota, our grilling season is much shorter. But when things warm up, I want to try these tacos!

  2. Yum! I love steak tacos. Kraft BBQ is delicious!

  3. I’m in the Bay Area too and it has been pretty darn gorgeous here for the past few days, hasn’t it? It’s crazy to watch the news from the East coast and see all that snow and then walk outside to blue skies and temps in the 70’s. Nice! We LOVE Mexican food here and these tacos look like the perfect choice for this weekend 🙂

    • Hi Valerie. My son wore shorts to school yesterday. It was the funniest thing to see in January. Wish the East coast could send some of that precipitation here, we are in desperate need of it to end this drought.

  4. I see (and can almost taste) all the essential elements for a fantastic meal with this recipe! A grill, some steak, some wonderful sauce and slaw on top? I am there!!

  5. I love being able to grill (nearly) year-round. It is 77 degrees in Texas right now! And, of course, we love our Mexican food here too. These look so tasty!

    • Texas weather can be crazy. I lived in Austin for over 10 years 🙂 I am jealous that you are there and get all of that delicious Mexican food…we just don’t have anything to compare here.

  6. These are perfect! And I looove the raisins in the cole slaw. I bet that was delicious!

  7. That steak is cooked to perfection!

  8. He looks like quite the bbq’er! And has done a fabulous job grilling those delicious tacos. Looks great!
