Barbecue the 6th: April 21

Do try this at home
A word to the wise: This is not a good stage to start cooking at

Do you want to look this happy? Get barbecuing!

Anyway, our sixth barbecue was well underway. This one was just Gem and I (and of course, Rosie). As with many of our barbecues, it was somewhat impromptu.

Weather

Sunny, for a change! Cool evening.

Food

One of our favourite things to cook on the barbecue is rump steak. In this case we went for sirloin, but I’d recommend rump – much juicier, and tender if not overcooked (note that the picture on the right does not represent cooked meat. Don’t try that at home).

Steak and Salmon.
Surf and Turf or what?
Steak. Mmm.
The hashtag is #omnomnom, I believe

Apart from a couple of sausages, we went for some salmon, which we keep having, because it’s so good on the barbecue. Gem isn’t a fan of spicy food, but I am, so I gave mine a rather nice curry-spice seasoning.

Served with a dressed salad, and some houmous. If there’s demand, I’ll post a houmous recipe which is really good. Comment if you wish!

So, this was superb. Try it!

    1. I use it whenever I’m cooking – I only take it off to turn things or to check if something is done. In fact, it’s quite important to do that – the lid makes the whole thing act like an oven, which cooks things better, preserves moisture, etc.
