The new Weber's On the Grill companion cookbooks, Weber's On the Grill(TM): Chicken & Sides and Weber's On the Grill(TM): Steak & Sides, by New York Times best-selling cookbook author Jamie Purviance, offer fresh perspectives and accessible recipes for two of America's favorite grilling staples.

Purviance is well known for his previous cookbooks, including Weber's Way to Grill(TM), a 2010 James Beard Foundation Awards nominee and New York Times Best Seller, in which he leads readers through advanced recipes and techniques. In the new Weber's On the Grill cookbooks, he focuses his attention instead on fast and fabulous recipes that busy cooks can make any night of the week. In Weber's On the Grill: Chicken & Sides, for example, there are simply delicious Grilled Chicken Tacos with Lime-Cilantro Slaw and Lemon-Dill Chicken Wraps with Grated Carrots, and if someone wants to be a bit more lavish and creative, there are great options like Prosciutto-Wrapped Chicken with Fig-Balsamic Glaze and Turkish Chicken Kabobs with Red Pepper and Walnut Sauce.

Published by Sunset Books, Weber's On the Grill: Steak & Sides provides the best grilling techniques for steak and lays out a wide array of fresh recipes for all kinds of cuts. For those who like the simplicity of only spices or herbs dusting their steak, there's Top Sirloin Steak with Santa Fe Spice Rub and New York Steaks with Toasted Fennel Rub. For grillers who like more pizzaz or a surprisingly delicious mix of flavors, there's Filet Mignon Steaks with Crab Guacamole and Miso-Marinated Flatiron Steaks with Shiitake Mushrooms.

And Then There's the Sides and More

In addition to 66 recipes each for chicken and steak, Weber's On the Grill cookbooks include 20 or more mouth-watering side recipes as accompaniments or main meals on their own. They vary from Eggplant with Spicy Asian Dressing or Cajun Corn with Louisiana Butter to Melted Onions or Couscous Salad.

Each cookbook also has its own 27 quick, go-to marinades, sauces, and rubs--plus grilling fundamentals and how-to's; what to look for when buying chicken or steak; a comprehensive index to find recipes in a hurry; and color photography by James Beard Award-winner Tim Turner.

At 144 pages with a manageable 7-1/2 X 9" soft cover format, the Weber's On the Grill cookbooks retail for $14.95 each. They're available wherever books are sold, including home centers, mass merchandisers, supermarkets and online.
