If you’ve watched Bobby Flay, you know of his fearless tenacity as an Iron Chef, his mastery of the grill and his fearless approach to rivals on Beat Bobby Flay. He’s mentored Food Network Star hopefuls to greatness and expanded Food Network fans’ palates to the bold flavors in Southwestern cuisine.

Keep reading below for his best-ever recipes — from grilled skirt steak tacos and party-ready sangria to a sweet-tooth-satisfying apple crumble — plus his tips for cooking the perfect burger.

Bobby’s tacos take just 30 minutes to make, thanks to the skirt steak that is grilled for just a few minutes on each side. Layer the meat atop a warm flour tortilla with buttery avocado, sour cream and Bobby’s roasted salsa, which has bold flavors like charred tomatoes and serrano chiles.

Sometimes serving up the ultimate burger means putting aside fancy fixings and focusing on the basics. Bobby lets the meat shine by simply seasoning the patty with salt and pepper. Top this classic eat-with-your-hands meal with cheese and serve on a toasted bun.

This fall, ditch the apple pie in favor of Bobby’s quick crumble. He chars the apples until caramelized and then tosses them with a buttery cinnamon-sugar mixture. Use prepared granola for an easy crumble topping, and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an old-fashioned treat.

A wine-based cocktail starring plenty of fresh fruit, Bobby’s sangria is a party-ready favorite. He makes this drink ahead of time by combining pomegranate juice with Triple Sec and brandy for an extra spike, then lets it chill so the flavors can meld.

Chock-full of caramel, peanut butter and chocolate, Bobby’s brownies are truly a triple threat. The trick to perfectly marbling these decadent treats is whisking the peanut butter into the homemade caramel so it thins out. Add the cooled peanut butter-caramel mixture in between two layers of batter and evenly swirl throughout.

The pillowy texture and nostalgic sweet smell of these rolls are undeniable when you pull them apart. Bobby lends richness to this dough by using milk, butter and sugar in the base. Add melted butter to the golden top for a decadent finish.

Bobby reinvents the Italian restaurant staple at home by making a chile-pepper-spiked tomato sauce from scratch. He sears the chicken until it’s golden brown, then bakes the meat with the sauce and fresh mozzarella until the cheese is gooey.

Bobby opts for lean ground turkey for a lighter take in his veggie-packed meatloaf for Food Network Magazine. He cooks the vegetables until soft before adding them into the meat mixture along with parsley and thyme for freshness. Brush the meatloaf with a sweet ketchup and balsamic glaze for a weeknight-ready classic.

If you’ve ever been to Bobby’s Burger Palace, you know what makes his signature burger so special: crunchy potato chips. Bobby adds chips for crisp texture as the final topping of his burger that’s also famous for its tangy horseradish mustard mayonnaise and two slices of melty American cheese.
