INTRODUCTION AMERICANS LOVE TO GRILL. WHETHER IT’S OUTDOORS OVER gas or charcoal or on an indoor grill, on most weekends we grill steaks, seafood, poultry, fruit, and veggies to enjoy the taste of flavorful food cooked over high heat. But there are many challenges associated with this pastime. The weather often doesn’t cooperate, and in many parts of the country it’s impossible to grill most of the year. Who wants to be outside, standing over a hot grill, when it’s 100°F in the shade? And no one wants to be shivering uncontrollably in the snow when it’s 10°F, trying to grill the perfect steak. And let’s face it: Unless you’re a grill expert, the results are often disappointing. Food can often be overcooked or undercooked. It takes time to prepare and preheat outdoor grills, and the whole process with charcoal is messy. You have to deal with lighting the fire, getting the coals just right, and estimating the temperature. Enter the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle, Ninja’s® most powerful grill yet (based on the Grill Grate’s direct heating element)! With the 500°F independently powered Grill Grate, Ninja’s® completely revolutionizing the indoor grilling game by giving you the direct, edge-to-edge high heat you need for steakhouse-style grilling— right on your countertop.

Harnessing the power from the grate, the flat-top BBQ Griddle gives you fast and even cooking with precise heat control so you can go beyond breakfast and make things you’d never expect from a grill. And for an outdoor cooking experience indoors, you can keep the hood up for direct, high-heat searing to lock in and boost flavors. This grill even air fries so you can enjoy all your fried favorites, guilt-free. Now you can grill, griddle, air-fry, and so much more, all in one convenient, family-sized appliance. You won’t believe some of the recipes you can make with the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle! For instance, make the best crisp, browned, and juicy burgers you’ve ever had, like Jalapeño Popper–Stuffed Burgers, for example. Finish your meal with a Grilled Fruit Salad. Chimichurri Flank Steak is perfect for busy weeknight family meals, and Italian-Style Rubbed Twin Pork Tenderloins with Grilled Vegetable Medley is a delicious choice for weekend entertaining. You can even cook your favorite breakfast items with this appliance: “Reuben” Hash and Sunny-Side Eggs, anyone? And just imagine eating Charred Summer Vegetable Pasta Salad any day of the week. This cookbook will teach you exactly how to use this wonderful appliance, and you’ll get 75 recipes that were specifically developed for the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle.

So, let’s learn how to use the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle so you can start making fabulous food!

Jerk Mahi Mahi Tacos with Grilled Avocado Crema

1 The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle 101 THE NINJA® FOODI® XL PRO GRILL & GRIDDLE WAS developed to make cooking as easy as possible, with high-heat steakhouse-style grilling, griddle searing, and so much more for endless meal options. It’s a versatile appliance that can replace many appliances in your kitchen. In this chapter, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle so you can cook many kinds of delicious food with very little effort. We’ll cover every feature and function of the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle so you feel completely comfortable using it.

GRILL, GRIDDLE—AND MUCH MORE There are several features built right into the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle that make this appliance unique. The grill was developed to address the needs of busy cooks who just want to feed their families delicious and healthy food every day with as little fuss and mess as possible. It preheats to the perfect temperature every time, with no estimating or guessing. The pro-powered Grill Grate creates direct, even, edge-to-edge high heat without hot or cold spots so you can ensure your food is always evenly cooked. But because this grill has such a wide temperature range, you also get the versatility to air-crisp, bake, roast, broil, and even dehydrate all in one. You can use this appliance to grill fresh steaks and pork chops, of course, but you can also cook straight out of the freezer. You can BBQ griddle a noodle stir-fry, cheesesteaks, tacos, sandwiches, eggs, and bacon; roast a chicken or fish; air-fry French fries or chicken nuggets; bake a cake or pie; broil veggies and fish; and dehydrate fruits and jerky for snacks. This appliance has changed the grilling landscape so you can quickly and easily make your favorite delicious and satisfying recipes for any meal any day or night of the week. The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle is great for entertaining, too. Has this ever happened to you? You plan a party, send out the invitations, devise a menu, shop for the ingredients—and then have to change your menu at the last minute because the day of the event dawns with a downpour. Now you can get the same delicious and flavorful results with this appliance as with an outdoor grill, and you don’t have to worry about the weather. The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle is large enough to cook a 2-pound flank steak, 24 hot dogs, 6 fish fillets or pork chops, and 6 New York strip steaks. And you can cook the main dish and sides at the same time. No matter where food is placed on the grill or griddle, it will brown evenly and cook just the way you want it. You don’t have to constantly rearrange the food. And the large size makes it easy to cook for a crowd. The 500°F pro-powered Grill Grate’s direct, edge-to-edge high heat unlocks even more ways to cook indoors. When you cook with the hood open, that direct, high heat from the Grill Grate gives you intense searing to lock in flavors on leaner, more delicate foods like steak tips, kebabs, and veggies. When you drop the hood, you combine the power of the high-heat cooking surface with cyclonic air for all-around searing, crisping, melting, and faster cooking of thicker or frozen foods. No matter what you’re craving, the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle gives you the versatility to cook all your favorite meals just how you like. Let’s look at the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle more closely so you can feel comfortable using this wonderful appliance right out of the box.

THE FEATURES The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle has many features that other indoor and outdoor grills do not. These include the enhanced performance of the pro-powered Grill Grate, the endless variety of cooking functions, and the XL capacity to feed a crowd. Best of all, you can serve family and friends perfectly cooked, crisp, tender, juicy, and char-grilled foods anytime with no fuss. 500°F Pro-Powered Grill Grate The Grill Grate is easy to place in the unit and is used every time you use the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle. Independently powered and reaching temperatures up to 500°F, this Grill Grate’s direct, edge-to-edge high heat is exactly what you need for steakhouse-style grilling, griddle searing, and so much more. With the option to cook with the hood down or up, you can either keep the hood down to combine the high-heat grate with 500°F cyclonic air for all-around searing, crisping, and faster cooking, or keep the hood up for direct, intense, high-heat searing from the grate alone to lock in flavors. To insert the Grill Grate, position it in the front of the base so it hooks in, then press down on the back until it clicks into place. Flat-Top BBQ Griddle This appliance comes with a flat-top BBQ Griddle that is just like the type of surface short-order cooks use in restaurants. The flat-top BBQ Griddle lets you cook foods some other indoor grills can’t, like smash burgers, cheesesteak sandwiches, and even fried rice. The flat-top BBQ Griddle seamlessly interlocks with the Grill Grate to harness its direct high heat and spread it out evenly. Precise temperature controls allow fast, even cooking without hot or cold spots. With the flat-top BBQ Griddle, you can go beyond breakfast to cover all of your mealtime needs. To use the flat-top BBQ Griddle, first insert the Grill Grate, then place the BBQ Griddle on top so it sits flat. Air Fryer Crisper Basket One of the best things about the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle is that it can also be used as an air fryer for guilt-free snacks and meals! This fabulous feature means you can make delicious French fries, chicken nuggets, fried fish, and onion rings with up to 75 percent less fat than deep frying (tested against hand-cut, deep-fried French fries). The 4-quart capacity Crisper Basket allows you to air-fry the food to crisp, goldenbrown perfection. The basket fits perfectly on top of the Grill Grate underneath the hood. XL Family-Size Capacity The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle has extra-large capacity, so you don’t have to cook food in batches. That means your family can eat together, and no one has to wait hungrily while the second (or third) batch is cooking. To reiterate, you can grill up to 6 steaks, a rack of baby back pork ribs, 2 pounds of carrots, or 24 hot dogs at the same time without overcrowding. Best of all, you can prepare a complete meal on this appliance by cooking main dishes and side dishes at the same time.

Virtually Smoke-Free One of the main problems with many indoor grills is that they can fill your kitchen with smoke as you cook. That won’t happen with this appliance! The combination of Ninja’s® chef-recommended grilling practices, a temperaturecontrolled Grill Grate, a splatter shield, and a grease collector reduces smoke, keeping it out of your kitchen. Dishwasher-Safe Cleanup Most of the accessories that come with the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle are dishwasher-safe, so you don’t have to spend a lot of time standing over the sink. Only the main unit itself should never be cleaned in the dishwasher. If you don’t want to put the accessories in the dishwasher, you can wash them easily with warm, soapy water using the cleaning brush with scraper that comes with the appliance. For tough and stuck-on food, a quick soak will easily finish the job.

ANATOMY OF THE XL PRO

THE FUNCTIONS Let’s look more closely at the fabulous functions of the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle and what each is made to do. We also give you tips for best results and tell you the types of recipes each function will cook perfectly. Grill With the 500°F pro-powered Grill Grate, use this function to bring the outdoor grilling

flavors you crave to your countertop all year round, virtually smoke-free. Its even, edge-to-edge high heat gives you intense searing when cooking with the hood open so you can develop char-grilled flavors on lean, delicate proteins. Or cook with the hood closed to use 500°F cyclonic air to evenly and quickly cook everything from thick New York strip steaks to frozen chicken breasts. The grill is best used to cook foods like steaks, kabobs, cuts of chicken, salmon fillets, vegetables, and all your other chargrilled favorites using LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH, or MAX heat. Make sure you use the recommended grill settings for the food you are cooking for best results.

BBQ Griddle Harnessing the direct, edge-to-edge heat from the Grill Grate, the flat-top BBQ Griddle gives you precise, even temperature control so you can go beyond breakfast and cook foods other indoor grills can’t. From smash burgers and grilled cheese sandwiches to stir-fries and fajitas, enjoy endless meal options all day long. Cook with

the hood open for even, edge-to-edge heat from the BBQ Griddle alone, or drop the hood and use 500°F cyclonic air to quickly melt and crisp toppings. Use a heatproof rubber-tipped spatula to flip and turn foods on the BBQ Griddle so you don’t damage the surface.

Air Crisp Air fryers are very popular appliances for good reason—they cook food that has the same taste and texture as deep-fried food, but with 75 percent less fat. (tested against

hand-cut, deep-fried French fries) Cyclonic heated air circulates all around the food to cook every inch perfectly and evenly. The Crisper Basket fits on top of the Grill Grate and cooks French fries, chicken nuggets, fish sticks, onion rings, and chicken wings to tender, crisp perfection. And it’s simple to rearrange food or shake the basket with the easy-to-use hood. Use silicone-tipped tongs to manipulate the food while air-frying, and always arrange food in the basket and turn it according to the recipe instructions.

Bake With your Ninja® Foodi® XL Grill & Griddle, you can bake foods, too! The even heat in this appliance lets you bake delicious and perfectly cooked cakes, cookies, pies, pastries, cobblers, casseroles, chicken pieces, fish, and appetizers. When baking, set

the time for a few minutes less than the time you would usually use to make sure the food doesn’t overbrown or burn. Keep a close eye on the food toward the end of the baking time. Traditional doneness tests for baked goods include inserting a toothpick to check on the texture, lightly touching the surface of cakes to see whether the crumb has set, and observing crust and color development. Broil Broiling exposes one side of food to direct, high heat. The BROIL function is used with the hood down and the Grill Grate in place. Broiling cooks food very quickly, so you should keep a close eye on the food as it cooks. You can use the BROIL function on this appliance to add a crisp, deep brown crust to food, to caramelize surfaces for complex flavor, and to cook foods like garlic bread, pork chops, thinner steaks, chicken leg quarters and breasts, fresh or frozen fish fillets, kabobs, scallops and shrimp, bell peppers, pineapple, and zucchini. Dehydrate Dehydrating food is a fun and easy way to make your own snacks and to preserve food. Dehydrated foods are great to take along on camping trips. With this appliance, you can easily dehydrate apples, tomatoes, beets, fresh herbs, and gingerroot and make delicious beef, turkey, chicken, and salmon jerky. And you’ll know exactly what is in these snacks, because you control the ingredients. Make sure the ingredients in a single batch are cut to the same size and thickness so they dehydrate evenly and at the same time. And you may want to blanch some foods in water to prevent flavor loss or coat them in lemon juice to preserve color before you dehydrate.

Roast Roasting food is an excellent way to cook recipes with lots of flavor. The high heat seals in juices and creates a wonderfully browned, flavorful crust. Because the Ninja® Foodi® XL Grill & Griddle can quickly reach and maintain the desired temperature, it’s ideal for roasting cuts of beef, whole chickens, pork loin, and vegetables. Whole chickens will be tender and juicy, with beautifully browned, crisp skin. Roasting is also a great way to cook vegetables like eggplant, potatoes, and Brussels sprouts and fruits like apples and pears so they develop flavor and crisp crusts.

Cook Foods Other Grills Can’t The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle has so many features, functions, and accessories that let you cook foods that other grills can’t. With seven cooking functions for all your mealtime needs, it allows you to grill, griddle, air-fry, and so much more, all in one convenient appliance. For starters, the Grill Grate lets you cook open-hood seared steaks that are just like beef cooked on an outdoor gas grill. You can also grill halloumi cheese, eggplant, mushrooms, fruits like pineapple and avocados, chicken wings, turkey burgers, and beef burgers.

One of the most exciting features of this appliance is its air fryer capability. The air fryer “fries” food with superheated air that moves around the food as it cooks, creating crisp and delicious French fries, tater tots, onion rings, chicken wings and nuggets, vegetable chips, fritters, and mozzarella sticks with 75 percent less fat (tested against hand-cut, deep-fried French fries) and no mess. Using the dehydrating function, you can make your own healthy snacks and create foods like beef or chicken jerky, fruit leather, and dried fruits and vegetables. With the BBQ Griddle, you can make crisp bacon and sunny-side-up eggs, French toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, shaved steak, cheesesteak, and crisp and juicy sausages. With the hood down, you can cook or grill frozen foods straight out of the freezer, such as veggie burgers, chicken breasts, salmon fillets, ribeye steaks, and pork tenderloin. You can make baby back ribs, sausages, rack of lamb, halibut fillets, and roast vegetables from asparagus to zucchini. Closed-hood cooking also lets you bake cakes, cookies, and pies using cyclonic heated air so the food browns beautifully while remaining tender and moist. Additionally, you can roast a brisket or a whole chicken, and you can broil steaks and sandwiches so they are crisp and golden brown.

Grilled Summer Peaches with Whipped Cinnamon Mascarpone

2 Grill & Griddle like a Pro NOW THAT YOU UNDERSTAND THE NINJA® FOODI® XL PRO Grill & Griddle and how this marvelous appliance works, let’s make sure you have a well-stocked kitchen so you can make all of the wonderful recipes in this book.

SET UP YOUR GRILLMASTER KITCHEN Having the right tools and foods on hand is essential to success in the kitchen. These staple foods, tools, and accessories will help you get the most out of the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle. Staples & Spices Although everyone’s kitchen is different depending on the foods you like to cook, these are the main staples, condiments, and spices that you need to make the recipes in this book. Canned tomatoes, stocks, and broths. You’ll need beef and chicken stock, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, and vegetable broth in your pantry for many of these recipes. Condiments. Hot sauce, jams, jellies, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, olives, pesto, pickles, soy sauce, vinegar, and Worcestershire sauce add flavor to foods and are used in many cuisines. Dairy and eggs. Butter, cream, eggs, and milk are used in baking and to make casseroles and side dishes. Cheeses of all kinds are essential ingredients in many of these recipes, including Cheddar, Cotija, feta, and Parmesan. Dough. Fresh and frozen doughs are used to make desserts, pastries, and pizza. Store items like canned dough products, pizza dough, and puff pastry in the refrigerator. Fresh fruits. Fresh fruits used in this book and stored in the refrigerator and pantry include apples, avocados, bananas, grapes, mangos, melons, peaches, pears, pineapple, and strawberries. Fresh vegetables. There are so many wonderful fresh vegetables you can use in grilling and cooking, including asparagus, baby bok choy, bell peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, chile peppers, corn on the cob, green beans, mushrooms, summer squash, tomatoes, and zucchini. Frozen produce. Your freezer should be stocked with all kinds of fruits and vegetables, including blueberries, corn, French fries, mixed berries, peaches, peas, and spinach. Herbs. Both fresh and dried herbs are used in many recipes. They include basil, cilantro, oregano, thyme, dill, rosemary, dried Italian seasoning, parsley, and mint. Meats, seafood, and poultry. Keep bacon, beef steaks, breaded chicken cutlets, chicken parts, ground beef and turkey, ham, pork loin and tenderloin, rack of lamb, roasts, salmon and fish fillets, sausages, shrimp, turkey cutlets, and whole chickens in your refrigerator and freezer to make excellent main dishes. Remember that you can cook frozen meats, fish, and poultry on the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle straight from the freezer.

Oils. Because the unit reaches such high temperatures, you need oil with a high smoke point that will not break down as you cook. When oils break down, they emit smoke and produce off flavors. Vegetable and canola oil are used in some of the recipes. Avocado, grapeseed, and refined coconut oils are good choices for this appliance, too. Pantry staples. You should have all-purpose flour (or other specialty flours); baking powder; brown, granulated, and powdered sugars; honey and maple syrup; nuts; pure vanilla extract; and chocolate chips on hand for baking. Root vegetables. The essential root vegetables include carrots, garlic, onions, red potatoes, russet potatoes, and sweet potatoes. These foods are used for side dishes and air-frying. Do not store garlic, onions, or potatoes in the refrigerator, or their texture and flavor will change. Spices. The most commonly used spices to add great flavor to baked goods, casseroles, and side dishes include black pepper, cardamom, chili powder, cinnamon, cumin, garlic powder, ginger, kosher salt, lemon pepper, onion powder, and sweet and smoked paprika. Tools & Extras Even though the Ninja® Foodi® Pro XL Grill & Griddle comes with most of the things you’ll need to make the recipes in this book, some tools and utensils are essential to good cooking. Basting brush. This tool is used to glaze meats, fish, and poultry as they grill, griddle, roast, and bake to provide great flavor and color. Silicone brushes are easier to clean than natural bristles, but you can buy either. Cutting boards. Good silicone or wood cutting boards are essential for preparing food for the grill or griddle. Buy one for meats and poultry for food safety reasons and another for fruits and vegetables, and keep them separate. Measuring cups and spoons. Nested steel or plastic measuring cups and spoons are necessary to measure dry ingredients accurately, and a glass measuring cup is the only way to measure liquids. Mixing bowls. Every kitchen needs a good set of nested mixing bowls for baking and cooking. You can choose from stainless, ceramic, or plastic bowls. Set of knives. A good set of knives includes a chef’s knife, paring knife, bread knife, and sharpening steel. Buy knives that feel good in your hands and that have a tang (blade) that goes all the way through the handle for longevity. Spatulas. You’ll need thin rubber-tipped spatulas as well as heatproof silicone spatulas for flipping food and scraping bowls. Buy more than one of each type so you aren’t constantly searching for them as you work. Tongs. A set of spring-loaded tongs, which open automatically and have to be closed to pick up food, are essential for flipping foods on the grill and to move food around in the Crisper Basket. Get sturdy tongs that are long and silicone-tipped. Wire whisk. A wire whisk will get lumps out of any sauce or marinade and is essential for making batters. Get a sturdy metal or silicone whisk. Grill & Griddle Accessories The Ninja® Foodi® Pro XL Grill & Griddle comes with all of the accessories you need to cook every recipe in this book, but there are some optional pieces you may want to buy depending on your favorite foods.

Splatter Shield

Unlike the rest of the accessories in this list, this one comes with the unit. The splatter shield must be used every time you use the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle. It prevents grease and oil from getting into the heating element so the unit doesn’t produce smoke. You should clean the splatter shield every time you are done cooking. Your unit does come with one splatter shield, but you may want to buy extras to make cooking simpler. Baking Pans and Cookie Sheets

If you want to use the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle to bake cookies, bars, pies, and cakes, you’ll need baking accessories that do not come with the appliance. Most large baking sheets will fit on the Grill Grate, as will 9-inch square and round baking pans, 9-inch pie plates, and 9- or 10-inch springform pans. These pans and sheets should be made of stainless steel and can be nonstick if you prefer. Skewers

Kabobs are made with metal or wooden skewers to cook fruit, vegetables, meat, poultry, shrimp, and scallops. Wood skewers can burn on the grill, even when they are first soaked in water, so a good set of metal skewers is essential if you make this type of recipe often. Ninja® Skewers are made of stainless steel and are very sturdy. Each 12-inch skewer holds enough for one serving. One end of the skewer has a rounded cap, so food doesn’t fall off onto the grill or griddle. These skewers are not included with the unit. Veggie Tray

Place this tray on the Grill Grate to cook small or delicate pieces of fruit or vegetables more easily. It holds the food securely while still adding great grill flavor. Using this tray you can grill corn off the cob, cherry and grape tomatoes, bell pepper strips, asparagus, baby carrots, and sliced onions. This tray is not included with the unit. XL Combo Crisper Basket

This extra-large basket used for air-frying is divided so you can cook more than one food at the same time. That means you can cook chicken nuggets and French fries for your kids without having to empty the basket and hold the cooked food warm in the oven while the second batch cooks. This basket is not included with the unit.

TOP TIPS Now your kitchen is complete, you understand how the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle works, and you have all your tools and accessories in place. Before you start cooking, let’s go through some tips and tricks that will help you get the most out of this appliance. Achieve the Perfect Char All grillers seek the perfect char. That crisp, super-browned crust on meats and those beautiful striped grill marks are mouthwatering and the reason we grill. To get the perfect char, it’s crucial that meat is not wet when it goes on the grill. Pat the meat dry with a paper towel (do not rinse it under running water for food safety reasons), especially if it has been marinated, season it with a dry rub for extra flavor along with salt and pepper, and put it on the grill. Let the meat cook undisturbed until the appliance lets you know it’s time to flip. Best Cuts of Meat for Grilling Certain cuts of meat are best for grilling, but others will give you disappointing results. Lean cuts of meat with just enough fat for flavor are best. Cuts like ribeye, filet

mignon, T-bone, Porterhouse, flank steak, flatiron, and top sirloin are delicious. Avoid cuts that need a long cooking time to melt connective tissue, like chuck, brisket, top blade, and roasts. Safe Final Internal Temperatures It’s crucial that the food you cook is safe to eat. Meats and poultry are often contaminated with dangerous pathogens. You’ll be fine as long as you use a food thermometer and follow USDA recommendations for safe temperatures: beef steaks, 145°F; chicken and turkey (including ground poultry), 165°F; ground beef, 160°F; fish, 145°F; pork, 145°F; lamb, 145°F; and veal, 145°F. The Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle tells you to remove food when it is 5°F or 10°F under the safe final temperature, because carry-over cooking from residual heat in the meat will continue to raise that temperature during standing time. Let Meat Rest Standing time is essential for best results. When meats rest after coming off the heat, the juices that are near the surface while cooking will migrate back to the center of the cut, so every bite is juicy. This is when carry-over cooking occurs, too. Let the meat stand on a clean platter (never put cooked meat or poultry on a platter that was used to hold raw meat) or cutting board for 5 to 10 minutes before you slice and serve. Slicing against the Grain Many beef recipes tell you to “slice against the grain.” All meat has a “grain,” or how the muscle fibers are oriented. It’s easy to see the grain; it’s just the visible lines that run through the cut. When you slice a big steak, position your knife so you are cutting perpendicular to, or across, the grain. This will cut across meat fibers so the meat is more tender. Don’t Be Impatient to Flip Moving meat too soon can have disastrous results. The built-in flip command on the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle tells you when you should turn the meat, but if you want to fly solo, it’s important that you don’t flip too soon. The meat needs time to develop a crust and char. Flipping too soon will tear the meat, releasing precious juices and ruining that flavorful crust. Tips for Juicy Results Never press down on burgers when they grill; you’re just squeezing out juices! When you form burger patties, don’t work the meat too much, or it will be tough. It’s also not a good idea to press firmly on steaks. And don’t cut into the meat to check doneness, or juices will escape.

NINJA® TEST KITCHEN FAQ These frequently asked questions will help you cook with the Ninja® Foodi® Pro XL Grill & Griddle and will provide answers to help you cook quickly and efficiently.

Q: How long should I preheat the grill? The grill automatically preheats to the temperature you select every single time. You can cook without preheating, but that isn’t recommended for best results. To override the automatic preheating, press the PREHEAT button. ADD FOOD will appear on the display.

Q: If I have to cook more than one batch for one meal, should I preheat the unit again? If you’re adding food to the grill immediately after removing cooked food, it’s possible to skip preheating again. Since the grill will already be hot, skip preheating by pressing the PREHEAT button. Otherwise, for best results, close the hood between batches and let the appliance heat for two to three minutes before adding more food. The appliance will be at the proper cooking temperature again so you can accurately estimate the cooking time.

Q: Can I substitute ingredients if I don’t have some the recipe calls for? Many recipes will offer suggestions for ingredients you can substitute for those called for in the recipes. If you want to use something else, make sure it has about the same cook time as the ingredient you are changing.

Q: Can I cook frozen food on the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle? Yes, this appliance is ideal for cooking frozen food. With the hood down, the heat is trapped and circulates around the food, so it thaws and cooks at the same time. When cooking frozen food, add a few minutes to the cook time called for in the recipe, but watch the food carefully. And even though you can’t put a thermometer into frozen food before it starts cooking, you can check the temperature as it approaches the end of the cook time.

Q: Why is my food burned? Food is burned when it is cooked at too high a temperature, when it is left on the grill or griddle too long, and when different sizes and types of protein are cooked at the same time. When you cook different types of meat, keep your eye on the smallest and thinnest pieces and check them more often. Remove food from the BBQ Griddle or grill as it finishes cooking.

Q: Does the appliance have a built-in thermometer? The standard version does not, although this feature is available in the Smart version of the Ninja® Foodi® XL Pro Grill & Griddle. To check for doneness, use a standard kitchen thermometer. Please always be sure to check final internal temperatures when cooking meat and poultry for food safety reasons.

Charred Carrots with Honey-Dill Sauce SERVES 4 Because of their tough exterior, carrots tend to have a harder time thoroughly absorbing the flavors in sauces and marinades. However, charring the carrots and cooking them in this sweet, bright sauce builds flavor using external factors—including the actual char, the caramelization of the honey, and the dual punch of the dill, which is added to the carrots while grilling and again as a topping. You can use multicolored carrots or baby carrots. Simply shorten the cook time to accommodate their smaller size. —Avery Lowe DAIRY-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE, UNDER 30 MINUTES, VEGETARIAN Prep Time: 5 minutes Total Cook Time: 12 minutes Accessory: Grill Grate Substitution: Don’t have honey?

Mango-Habanero Chicken Jerky SERVES 4 A twist on the road trip classic, chicken jerky is a leaner and more versatile alternative to beef. This jerky honors the sweet and spicy while keeping salty notes along for the ride. The key to making the jerky thin enough is freezing the chicken breasts and slicing them while they are frozen. Once the chicken is sliced and tossed in the marinade, this recipe is completely hands-off. After it spends 5 to 7 hours in the dehydrator, you’ll be ready to pack your bags and take this one on the road. —Avery Lowe DAIRY-FREE, NUT-FREE Prep Time: 15 minutes, plus 3 hours to freeze and 8 to 24 hours to marinate Total Cook Time: 5 to 7 hours Accessories: Grill Grate, Crisper Basket 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts ¾ cup mango juice 1 cup canned crushed pineapple 4 habanero peppers, seeded and diced 1 tablespoon honey 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon paprika 2 tablespoons canola oil 1½ tablespoons kosher salt 1. Individually wrap the chicken breasts in plastic wrap. Place them in the freezer for at least 3 hours. This will make it easier to slice the chicken breasts, which is an important food safety component of chicken jerky. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together the mango juice, pineapple, peppers, honey, vinegar, soy sauce, paprika, canola oil, and salt. 3. When the chicken is frozen, slice each breast into ¼-inch-thick strips. Place the strips in a large resealable bag and add the marinade. Seal the bag and massage it to work the marinade over all parts of the chicken. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours. 4. Insert the Grill Grate, place the Crisper Basket on top so it sits flat, and close the hood. Select DEHYDRATE, set the temperature to 150°F, and set the time to 7 hours. 5. Take the chicken strips out of the bag, shake off any excess marinade, and pat the chicken strips dry with a paper towel. Place the chicken strips in a single layer in the basket, leaving a little space in between each piece, if possible. Close the hood and dehydrate for 5 hours. 6. After 5 hours, check the jerky. It should be thin, crisp, and cooked until no white, meaty bits remain. If not, close the hood and continue cooking for up to 2 hours more. 7. When cooking is complete, remove the jerky and store it in an airtight container.

Fried Rice SERVES 4 TO 6 Fried rice is certainly one of my guilty pleasures, and I probably make it more often than one should. But that will be our secret. You can eat it as a meal, as a side dish, or at any time of the day. The best part is that it’s completely customizable.

It’s not super popular with the home cook, but you can usually find it on any good Mediterranean restaurant’s menu—usually served very simply, just like this recipe.

Grilled Eggplant Caponata Bruschetta SERVES 4 TO 6 Caponata is a sweet-and-sour Sicilian dish. The eggplant acts as a flavor sponge, soaking up all the sugar, herbs, and acid in the dish as well as taking on all that delicious char-grilled flavor. This is a great dish for entertaining, because the flavors develop overnight, so you can make the caponata the day before and let the flavors meld.

The grilled vegetables here really add some depth to the dish, providing a char-grilled flavor that goes great with grilled meats, chicken, and fish.

Using a ground plant-based meat makes burger night even better (at least in my household). I have made many variations of this recipe, and none of them have disappointed.

Grilled Iceberg Wedge Salad with Blue Cheese SERVES 4 Most people hear the words “grilled salad,” and the first thing they say is, “Warm lettuce?” My response to that is yes, grilled lettuce is awesome! Char influences the flavor of lettuce the same way it influences the flavor of proteins and vegetables. The flavor is one thing, but the contrast in temperatures, while different, is a revelation. Here, we took a classic steakhouse salad and changed the game by grilling the lettuce and tomatoes.

Crispy Teriyaki Tofu with Sautéed Vegetables SERVES 4 I have been eating a plant-based diet for 12 years and have become more than familiar with tofu. I call for extra-firm tofu because I like my tofu to have a crispy exterior but a soft and juicy inside. The best part about tofu is that it is a blank slate and an amazing “vehicle” for any sauce, spice, or marinade. I recommend pairing this tofu with your favorite grain or rice noodles. —Athia Landry DAIRY-FREE, NUT-FREE, VEGETARIAN Prep Time: 15 minutes, plus 15 minutes to marinate Total Cook Time: 26 minutes Accessories: Grill Grate, BBQ Griddle Substitution: Not a fan of these vegetables?

Okonomiyaki with BBQ Sauce, Sriracha, and Mayonnaise SERVES 6 TO 8 Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake that is sometimes referred to as “Japanese pizza.” The first time I had one, it took my breath away.

Plant-Based Harissa Meatballs with Roast Dijon Cabbage and Garlic Aioli SERVES 2 TO 4 I love every aspect of developing a recipe, but I think my favorite part is the plating. I am a sucker for the messy “undone” look, and this dish is perfect for that. I recommend plating this family-style on a large serving platter.

Plant-Based Bratwursts with Grilled Apple and Onion Slaw SERVES 8 The coleslaw in this recipe is elevated by grilling the onions, lemons, and apple. All three ingredients have high sugar contents, which lends them nicely to caramelization through grilling.

Crispy Seitan Gyros with Lemon-Dill Yogurt SERVES 2 Seitan can be a heavy plant-based protein alternative, but pairing it with lemon and dill helps keep each bite bright. I recommend grating the garlic cloves with a zester or the small side of a box grater.

Crispy Fish “in Chips” Sandwich SERVES 4 This sandwich came together a few different ways. When I make tuna sandwiches, I always put potato chips on the sandwich. The crunch factor it creates is out of this world. When I was thinking about how I was going to make this recipe different, I thought about chips and couldn’t pass up a good pun. Coating the fish in chips makes this the crispiest fish sandwich you have ever had. After you make this, you will never go back to basic breading for your air-fried fish. —Craig White NUT-FREE, UNDER 30 MINUTES Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Cook Time: 11 minutes Accessories: Grill Grate, Crisper Basket Substitution: Hard time finding fresh haddock?

Place them in a third medium bowl along with the bread crumbs and stir to combine. 3. Using your left hand, place a fish fillet in the flour mixture and pat it down to coat the fish in flour all over. Shake the fillet to remove excess flour and place it in the bowl with the egg mixture. With your right hand, move the fillet around to coat it with the egg. Then, using your wet right hand, remove the fillet and place it into the bowl with the chip-and-bread-crumb mixture. Using your dry left hand, toss the fillet in the bread crumbs, packing it in to ensure it is coated. Place the fillet on a plate. Repeat this process with the remaining fillets. 4. When the unit beeps to signify it has preheated, place the breaded fillets in the basket. Close the hood and cook for 10 minutes. 5.

Swordfish Saltimbocca with Mediterranean Salad SERVES 4 In Guam, we used to visit the Guam Fishermen’s Co-Op just down the street from us to get some fresh catch for dinner.

Teriyaki-Marinated Skirt Steak with Grilled Onions SERVES 4 Skirt steak is one of my all-time favorite meats to grill no matter the time of the year. And because it’s such a thin cut of meat, it cooks super quickly and lends itself well to any sort of marinade you want to put it in. This teriyaki marinade in particular is one of my favorites, because once you throw it on the grill, the marinade instantly begins to caramelize and even char in some places, which results in the most delicious, mouthwatering steak you’ve ever had. Trust me. —Caroline Schliep

Chimichurri Flank Steak SERVES 4 The key to cooking flank steak is to marinate it first. Flank steak can tend to be a little chewy, but when marinated, it can be one of the most tender pieces of steak to eat. Most citrus fruits do an amazing job breaking down lean meats, turning them into more tender cuts. In this recipe, we are using lemon juice in the chimichurri, an Argentine sauce. This flank steak recipe is vibrant and flavorful. Serve it with some roasted potatoes and a salad, and you have a full dinner. —Myles Bryan DAIRY-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE Prep Time: 10 minutes, plus 8 to 24 hours to marinate Total Cook Time: 30 minutes Accessory: Grill Grate 2 cups extra-virgin olive oil 2 tablespoons kosher salt 1 chile pepper, minced 2 tablespoons minced garlic ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro ¼ cup minced fresh oregano 1 tablespoon dried parsley ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice 1½ to 2 pounds flank steak 3 tablespoons vegetable oil 1.

Remove the steak from the marinade and place it on the grill. Leave the hood open and cook, using silicone-tipped tongs to flip the steak every 7 minutes to ensure even char development. 4. After 20 minutes, begin checking the steak for doneness using a meat thermometer. For medium-rare, the thermometer should read 145°F. 5.

Meatloaf Kofta Kebabs SERVES 4 Kofta is a Middle Eastern dish that has a similar architecture to meatloaf. However, it differs in its meat base (using beef and lamb, rather than beef and pork), and it’s often served on skewers, making it a great recipe for the grill. Kofta is delicious on its own, but putting it on skewers makes it easy to slip it right into some pita bread drizzled with tzatziki sauce. —Avery Lowe NUT-FREE Prep Time: 15 minutes, plus 1 hour to chill Total Cook Time: 15 minutes Accessories: Grill Grate, Ninja® Skewers or other 8-inch skewers 10 soda crackers 3 tablespoons whole milk 1 large egg, beaten Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 pound ground lamb 1 pound 80 percent lean ground beef ½ cup finely minced white onion 4 garlic cloves, minced 2 tablespoons smoked or sweet paprika 1 tablespoon ground cumin ¼ cup minced fresh parsley Pita (optional) Tzatziki sauce (optional) 1.

Carne Asada Tortas SERVES 4 TO 6 The most wonderful thing about Mexican food is the bold, fresh, and vibrant flavors and colors. Inspired by the street tacos of Mexico City, this carne asada recipe uses skirt steak, which is thin and fibrous so it can really soak up the citrusy marinade to tenderize before being grilled. Although nothing is quite like authentic carne asada, the results here are delicious, juicy, and perfectly caramelized.

Chipotle Pork Chops with Grilled Corn Salad SERVES 4 A little spicy, a little sweet, with hints of smoke, and packed with flavor—this meal is not only incredibly simple but also quick and impressive.

Grilled Harissa and Yogurt Lamb Chops SERVES 2 TO 4 Lamb is one of my favorite proteins to cook—and eat. The flavor is unlike beef or pork, and lamb can be cooked in a variety of ways to transform the flavor. When I was growing up, my dad would cook lamb on the grill with a simple butter sauce, and I wanted to transform his recipe with my own take. Store-bought harissa rub cuts down on prep time and buying lots of different spices. If you like your lamb a bit more rare, reduce the cook time and check the chops with an instant-read thermometer for the final temperature. —Meg Jordan 5-INGREDIENT, GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE Prep Time: 5 minutes, plus 30 minutes to 24 hours to marinate Total Cook Time: 15 minutes Accessory: Grill Grate ¼ cup premade harissa spice rub 2 cups whole-milk Greek yogurt Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 8 (4- to 5-ounce) lamb chops 1.

Flank Steak Roulade with Spinach and Fontina Stuffing SERVES 4 TO 6 Roulades are one of my favorite ways to prepare meats. From porchetta to chicken cordon bleu to turducken, roulades are eye-catching presentations. When making this dish, make sure to pound the flank steak thin enough to hold all that stuffing, because it will make it much easier to roll. Take your time and take out some aggression on those flank steaks! Pounding will also help tenderize this generally tough cut of meat. —Craig White NUT-FREE, UNDER 30 MINUTES Prep Time: 10 minutes Total Cook Time: 20 minutes Accessory: Grill Grate Did You Know? Flank steak comes from the abdominal area of the cow. As you can imagine, that muscle could be quite tough. Be sure to cut tough or chewy cuts of meat thinly against the grain, as this makes the muscle fibers smaller and easier to chew. 2 (1-pound) flank steaks Kosher salt Freshly ground black pepper 1 (10-ounce) package frozen spinach, thawed and drained well ½ cup seasoned panko bread crumbs 1 tablespoon whole milk ¾ cup shredded Fontina cheese 1½ teaspoons dried oregano Zest of 1 lemon 4 teaspoons Dijon mustard 2 tablespoons canola oil 1. Place a steak on a cutting board. Cover the steak with plastic wrap and pound it thin with a meat mallet. Make sure the steak is pounded evenly into a thin rectangle, roughly 8 by 10 inches. Season both sides with salt and pepper. Repeat with the second steak. 2. In a large bowl, combine the spinach, bread crumbs, milk, Fontina cheese, oregano, lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste, and mix until well blended. 3. Spread 2 teaspoons of mustard across the surface of each steak. Divide the filling between the two steaks and spread it evenly across each steak, leaving a ½-inch border around the edge. Gently roll each steak with the grain of the meat, tucking back into the pinwheel any filling that may fall out. Tightly tie off the steak with butcher twine, starting at one end of each roll, at 1- to 2-inch intervals. 4. Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to HIGH, and set the time to 20 minutes. Press the dial to begin preheating. Coat each steak roll with 1 tablespoon of canola oil. 5.

Grilled Summer Peaches with Whipped Cinnamon Mascarpone SERVES 4 Don’t believe the recipe title. This is wonderful at any time of year. I tried many versions of this dish, sometimes happily and sometimes a bit nervously. The main issue is what happens when the peaches aren’t ripe.

Plantains Foster SERVES 4 Bananas foster is one of my favorite desserts. It’s so easy and delicious, while still being “impressive.” When it comes to “griddling” bananas, although it is delicious, applying harsh heat to such a sweet and delicate fruit can be a little tough.

Plantains are just like bananas in the way that they ripen. The more yellow or brown they are, the riper and sweeter they are. 4 tablespoons (½ stick) unsalted butter, divided 2 large, ripe yellow plantains, halved crosswise, then halved lengthwise ½ cup packed light or dark brown sugar ½ cup heavy (whipping) cream ¼ teaspoon kosher salt Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional) 1.

Put the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and the brown sugar on the BBQ Griddle. Using a rubber-tipped spatula, mix until combined and melted.
