It is officially football season! Tell the chips & dip to move over…you can make and serve a fabulous appetizer right from the sidelines! Skirt Steak Crostini Bites can be easily assembled on site at your next gameday tailgate!
Is a tailgate party really a tailgate party without someone firing up a charcoal grill? We think not. There is something special about a cool fall day, the smell of burning embers, and the sound of a ref’s whistle!
Authentic grill marks from iron grates….TOUCHDOWN! And, making Skirt Steak Crostini Bites is sooooo easy to throw together when you are grill-gating on game-day. A robust Dr Pepper marinade brings the flavor to the skirt steak. You can make the marinade the night before; just place your skirt steak & marinade in a resealable baggie for easy game-day transport. Make sure it travels in a cold cooler! Here are step by step instructions:
I placed the other ingredients (cheese & parsley) into resealable baggies, too. I’m a no-hassle tailgater! Then, once the meat is grilled, cut it into bite size pieces with kitchen shears. Grill-gating is the BEST.
Are you an Emmitt Smith fan?!? We live in Florida and my husband cheers for a team Emmitt Smith used to play for, so we ADORE him! Check out this site where he shares his game-day grilling tips! You can GRILL-GATE WITH THE BEST!
Skirt Steak Crostini Bites:
Your Players On The Field
Here is why this is one of my FAVORITE game-day appetizers – it’s just so darn easy! Your fans will think you prepared for days, when in reality you were spending your time looking at your team’s practice schedule! 🙂
Your Players On The Field: Toasted crostini rounds (prepared ahead of time, of course!), shredded cheese, Dr Pepper marinated skirt steak, parsley and the quarterback of the team….Hidden Valley® Ranch Roasted Garlic dressing. Such simple ingredients. RITZ crackers and cold Dr Pepper rounded out our tailgate menu!
When your ingredients are ready for kickoff, just assemble the bites and throw ’em on the grill!
Skirt Steak Crostini Bites
Each crostini round is topped with a dollop of Hidden Valley Ranch Roasted Garlic Salad Dressing, a little cheddar cheese, Dr Pepper marinated steak, more cheese & dressing, and topped off with fresh parsley. Now, you are ready to take your team over to the grill!
Skirt Steak Crostini Bites are incredibly delicious….and are best served fresh off the grill! The garlic dressing infuses with the marinated skirt steak and sits beautifully on the buttered crostini round. It’s hard to eat just one of these! The Dr Pepper marinade is incredible…and y’all KNOW we love tailgating with Dr Pepper…remember our Dr Pepper Meatball Appetizers?!?! Dr Pepper is practically a requirement for our tailgates. 🙂
Like I mentioned earlier, I’m all about stress-free tailgates. The more I can do on the front end, the better. Getting the ingredients, for instance, needs to be a one stop shop. And, I found all the ingredients at my local Wal-Mart store…..so easy!
Find these great products and more grill-gating inspiration here.
The Kingsford® Charcoal was located in the garden center, so that was my first stop at Wal-Mart. I grabbed the Dr Pepper, RITZ and Hidden Valley Ranch Roasted Garlic Dressing in the grocery center. This dressing. It is sooo good (I’m dipping fresh carrots in it as I write this!). The Dr Pepper marinated steak and garlic dressing are the key ingredients in Skirt Steak Crostini Bites!
This is going to be a fabulous grill-gating football season…..especially with yummy bite size appetizers that travel well! We think Kingsford® Charcoal, Dr Pepper and RITZ should be on your tailgate team, too!
