Memorial Day is just around the corner and we can’t wait to sit back, relax and enjoy a much-needed 3-day weekend. While we use this time to remember those who have passed while serving our country, it is also a great day to spend time with the ones we love most. What better way to celebrate America and enjoy family time than with tasty food and libations? For this blog, we’re going to show you how to throw the ultimate Memorial Day barbecue using our latest meals!
It's All About the Meat
What barbecue is complete without a few varieties of quality, smoky meats? This Memorial Day we’ve partnered with the ultimate BBQ Pitmaster Myron Mixon to bring amazing recipes with fresh ingredients delivered straight to your door. No planning, measuring or shopping needed, our Memorial Day meals are ready to assemble from our kitchen to your table. Whether you’re an expert griller or novice chef, Myron’s recipes are perfect for every skill level. Our Memorial Day meat options include:
- Smoked Baby Back Ribs
- Smoked Brisket
- Smoked Pulled Pork
- Old-Fashioned Barbecue Chicken
At Chef’d we believe that sides play just as much of a starring role as the mains. What good is a Memorial Day BBQ without the classics like coleslaw and potato salad? This year, we’ve teamed up with Myron Mixon to create 4 sides that are perfect for 8 guests at your Memorial Day bash. You can choose from the following:
- Peach Baked Beans
- Mama's Coleslaw
- Zesty Potato Salad
- Mac n' Cheese
Add a Patriotic Signature Drink
Since we’ve made your Memorial Day menu easier than ever, we’ll leave the extra special details up to you! To really wow your guests, we suggest making a signature drink like this refreshing Red, White and Blueberry Lemonade from Chef’d partner SkinnyMs. This recipe is festive, kid-friendly, and can be altered for adults with a little alcohol. What you’ll need:
- 1 can frozen white grape juice concentrate
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 gallon of cold water
- 2 apples, cut across into round slices (preferably cut into stars using a cookie cutter)
- 1 pint of blueberries, washed
- 1 pint of strawberries, stems removed, washed and halved
