It's a good idea to learn to cook recipes that won't agitate your heartburn. And it can be a lot of fun. We have plenty of recipes to share, but here are two to help you get started.

Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

Few people realize that flank steak is one of the leanest cuts of beef. This recipe has flavor without the fat, and fat is a major culprit in creating heartburn.

Makes 4 servings

¼ cup Balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons reduced sodium-soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 medium shallots, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons fresh chopped rosemary OR 1 teaspoon dried
1 ½ teaspoons dry mustard
1 ¼ pounds flank steak
Salt to taste

  1. In a 13x9x 2-inch glass baking dish combine the vinegar, soy sauce, honey, shallots, rosemary, and mustard until combined, using a fork or whisk.
  2. Place the steak on top, and press meat lightly to coat with marinade. Turn, and press again. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours turning occasionally.
  3. Prepare grill to medium-hot coals, or medium setting, or preheat broiler. Remove the meat from marinade; discard marinade. Grill 4 to 6 minutes on each side (for medium-rare), or until desired doneness.
  4. Transfer steak to cutting board; sprinkle lightly with salt. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cut diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Arrange on a platter, and serve.

Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Summer Vegetables

You can make this delightful combination of potatoes and vegetables on the grill or in the oven. They can be made ahead and served at room temperature, or reheated when you're ready to eat.

Sweet Vidalia onions are easy on your tummy-especially when they're roasted-so former onion eaters may tolerate them quite well. Sweet potatoes are so rich in nutrients everyone should eat them whenever possible. Feel free, however, to substitute your favorite potato in this recipe.

Makes 4 servings

2 medium sweet potatoes, scrubbed and cut into ½-inch pieces
1 medium Vidalia onion, thinly sliced
1 medium zucchini, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 12 ounces)
1 medium yellow summer squash, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 12 ounces)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme OR 2 teaspoons dried, crumbled
Salt to taste

  1. Prepare grill to medium-hot coals, or medium setting, or preheat oven to 425° F.
  2. In a shallow baking pan, combine the vegetables, olive oil, and thyme; toss until thoroughly combined. Cook on preheated grill, or in preheated oven, for about 35 minutes, or until vegetables are tender and lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
