Recipe

New York City absolutely sizzled a few weeks ago during the Macy’s Culinary Council Sizzle Showdown. On June 28, Chefs Johnny Iuzzini and Todd English hosted the Grilling Guru Sizzle Showdown Finale on Broadway. It was an intense battle between six finalists, looking to become the Grilling Guru. Only one would walk away with a whopping $10,000 and a trip to the 2015 Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks.

With just an hour to grill their way to the crown, the six finalists created their dishes in almost 90° weather. But they didn’t sweat.  Far from it. They were energized. It. Was. Intense. And, they truly brought the heat! Rich, delicious, mouth watering smells permeated the air.

The Six Finalists and Their Recipes

1. Sarah M., Maine – Grilled Chicken Stuffed with Herb Goat Cheese and Prosciutto
2. Sonya G., Minnesota – Pesto Citrus Prosciutto Grilled Shrimp with Mandarin Orange Grilled Red Pepper Fruit Salsa
3. Devon D., New Jersey – Crab Sliders with Firecracker Chow & Avocado Tartar Cream
4. Mary S., Oklahoma – Pork & Beef Braids with Charred Apple-Mango Reduction on Grilled Kale
5. Sherri W., Florida – Grilled Thai Lamb Loin Chops
6. Jack S., California – Steak and Potato Sliders with Basil/Gorgonzola

After the one hour time frame, the judges cast their vote. It was not an easy decision. All the dishes were fabulous in their own right. But one stood out…
