Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rain or shine, my indoor electric grill is now working overtime—thanks to Grill Power and its over 100 fun-filled, easy-to-follow, and healthy recipes. Holly Rudin-Braschi is more than the fabulous grill master, her approach to good health through nutrition is something that we all should follow."
—Martin Yan, host of PBS's Yan Can Cook

"I particularly loved the meat recipes, which came from all over the world and used a host of exciting and unusual flavors. And best of all, they have been easily adapted for use on an indoor electric grill."
—Bruce Aidells, co-author of The Complete Meat Cookbook

The nutrients for carb-conscious women like me and the grill time are helpful too.
Gail Brown

Highly recommended for anyone who has received a grill as a gift, and really wants to cook!

This book is truly worth every penny. Rarely is any cookbook a good and useful read from cover to cover. This is both cookbook and grill primer. It is far more useful than any of the inserts that came with your grill in regards to it (other than things such as manufacturer information, etc), that's for certain.
Grill Power is useful beyond measure. It has recipes in it, most healthy. However, here "healthy recipe" isn't a dirty little phrase, that gets you all set for a horrible food experience in the name of nutrition. The recipes here are actually, dare I say it, better than their fattening counterparts. This is someone saying this who HATES and loathes with a passion, "diet food".
This tells you how to make use of your grill as an every-day appliance. It's more than slap some hamburgers on there (although there are quite a few hamburger recipes, none of them are boring or blaze). They're darn tasty than just patties made from nothing but meat.
Good bits: a list in the back that tells you how to cook just about every kind of vegetable more or less, as well as fruit. An introduction on different kinds of grills that everyone should read before buying one...never have I seen each explained so well. There are several side dishes and also a lot of trivia interspersed through the book which makes it doubly interesting. It's a cookbook to read as well as use.
Odd technical notes: The book is well-bound and easy to read while cooking. My copy came signed by the author. Since I wasn't aware this would be on my copy, it's a sort of a "plus".
As cookbooks go, the organization is a 9 out of 10. The only thing I dislike is the font for the recipe titles -- it's the font called "Mistral" on Windows. It makes casual flipping hard for me, but I have eye trouble, so YMMV. That's probably a non-issue for most folks but it stood out for me.

I bought my son a George Forman grill when he moved into his new apartment, and figured that would take care of that! But when I came across this book (at a convention, of all places) it seemed the logical add-on gift. If I had a grill of my own, I'd have a hard time handing this book over to him!
Author and chef Holly Rudin-Braschi promises that this is "Everything you need to know to make delicious, healthy meals on your indoor electric grill," and she follows through by offering MORE than just the 50 plus recipes. In the beginning, she offers an "International Pantry Solutions," listing basic spices, sauces, herbs and condiments for different cuisines (Cajun, Creole, Caribbean, Chinese, French, Greek, Indian, Italian, Japanese, Mexican, southwest, middle eastern, south east Asian). Toward the back of the book, she offers recipes for meatless grilling -- middle eastern veggie wrap with heavenly hummus, Taj Mahal Tofu Steaks with Pineapple Express Rice and Cucumber Raita Salad. In the thickest section, in the middle, she gives the reader more traditional meals -- gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches (much improved!), hamburgers from simple to fancy, steaks, chicken, sausage, Texas chili, veal chops and much much more.
Throughout this thick, easy to read book, she gives a bundle of useful information, especially good for first time or infrequent cooks. This includes time saving ingredients; instructions on how to make your own Cajun seasoning, dry jerk seasoning mix, how long to marinate meat, chicken and fish, grill times; well composed salads; a chapter on how to grill super steaks, chops and tenderloins, including what to buy, how much you'll have when you're done grilling (4 to 5 oz. of meat becomes 3 to 4 oz.

I received Grill Power by Holly Rudin-Braschi as a gift. It is by far the most informative cook book I have ever owned. I am a senior citizen and have reached that age of appreciating a good, healthy but simple meal. I own a wonderful indoor grill, but have not used it as much as I would like to because of my inability to be creative. Since receiving this wonderful book, I find myself using my grill at least 2 or 3 times a week. What I love about this book is how every recipe starts with her explanation of where this recipe originated from and gives you a little bit of history that I find very interesting. I love the Menu Game Plan that tells you exactly what you need to do and how long it will take you to prepare and cook this meal. I also enjoy Holly's Cook Notes. I would recommend buying this wonderful book. You will find it to be one of the best cooking tools you have ever purchased.

This book is a must for anyone who has recently purchased an indoor grill or for anyone who wishes to take their existing indoor grilling experience to a higher level of enjoyment.
We learned ALOT about the basics of marinating and discovered many mistakes that we were inadvertently making. The section on martinating alone is worth the price of the book, because Holly explains what oils, acids, etc. do to the meat fibers and how long to marinate depending on the type of marinade and what it is that you are marinating. She also shows how to moisturize lean cuts of meat and fish for better flavor and juciness.
The layout of the book and how the chapters are organized make it very user friendly. Holly is teaching you to develope an aptitude around grilling, so as you go through each recipe section, you get creative recipes to enjoy, and also become more experienced at creating your very own recipes to experiment with.
This book has helped us to eat healthier by utilizing our grill for the majority of our meals and has given us a wealth of knowledge as well.
