He Starts By Rubbing A Potato All Over His Grill. The Reason? Genius!
Thankfully, there is a Solution to prevent the frustrating grill-stick problems we all tend to experience, by treating your grill surface and making it non-stick. All you need is just a potato, a fork, and a grill. Start by heating up the grill until it’s nice and hot. Then cut the potato in half and stab one of the halves with a fork so that the white fleshy side faces out towards the grill. Place the cut open side of the potato down on the hot grill and rub it back and forth across the entire area you intend to place your meat. You should hear a pleasing sizzle sound and only need to go over the metal grate several times to create a non-stick coating.
Asking yourself how does this work? Well the starch in the potato gets pulled out when heated up and transferred to the hot metal surface, where it forms a non-stick barrier, perfect for grilling on. Overall it’s an effective, easy, non-toxic, and non-messy way to quickly prepare your grill and stop food from sticking on. Check out the short video below for more information and a guide.
