I’m betting the pilgrims would have loved to add a slice of sizzling beef to their list of blessings!

Many of the recipes in this roundup call for grilled steak, which is ideal for such a day of feasting. Your grill is probably the one “appliance” not used in a typical Thanksgiving day cooking plan.
