Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 8 carrots
  • 0.25 oz fresh Italian parsley

Oil and Spices

  • 0.25 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 0.25 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 0.5 tsp kosher salt


  • 0.5 tsp red wine vinegar


  • 0.25 cup unsalted butter


  • 8 medium carrots, each 6 to 8 inches long and about 1 inch wide at the stem
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh Italian parsley


  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
  2. Peel the carrots and cook them in boiling water until they are partially cooked but still crisp, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain the carrots and rinse them under cold water for at least 10 seconds to stop the cooking.
  3. Lay the carrots flat on a work surface. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter with the vinegar and nutmeg. Brush the carrots with about half the butter mixture and season with half the salt and pepper.
  4. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the carrots over direct high heat, with the lid open, until lightly charred with spots and stripes, 3 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer the carrots to a platter, brush them with the remaining butter mixture, and season them with the remaining salt and pepper. Sprinkle the parsley over the top, if using. Serve warm.

Best carrots I've ever had!!

My first recipe from 'Weber's Charcoal Grilling' cookbook. I wanted a simple vegetable side that I could grill along with my rubbed steaks, so I decided to attempt this recipe. These were very easy to make, no complicated instructions, no extended prep time, no exotic ingredients. I'm not that big on cooked carrots, but the picture looked appealing, so deciding to grill these up it was a good move on my part, as these by far are the best cooked carrots I've ever tasted, my stepson said the same thing! Will have to double up on the recipe next time, now knowing how good these carrots turn out, everyone will want second helping of these carrots. I'll be cooking this recipe many more times in the future, this will be a regular side on our dinner table for many future meals.
