I confess, there are a few steak posts in this blog … but heck, my wife and I enjoy a good rib-eye, it’s one of our favourite meals. How to improve on it, though? We recently found a way to enhance the flavour by several notches … twice searing with a bone marrow glaze.
Bored of having the same chips/fries every time? Try kicking it up a notch … or three … by adding some tasty chopped parsley and truffle oil, along with a mayonnaise dip on the side. Delicious.
I enjoyed a bowl of smoked bourbon baked beans at the weekend, paired perfectly with a juicy rib-eye steak. What to do with the leftover beans though? I had planned to make a pizza during the week. A steak pizza for that matter.
In a moment of culinary creativity, my wife blended the remaining beans into a sauce as a passata substitute. It resulted in one of the best tasting meat pizzas that we had.
A glaze or marinade can make the humble chicken shine, especially when there is a flavoursome dry rub used as a base. After trying some commercial products that were too salty and sweet, I decided to make my own.
Enjoy this simple, effective and very tasty homemade glaze for cooking chicken in a covered BBQ, Big Green Egg or conventional oven.
After thoroughly enjoying the delicious Jamaican jerk spatchcock chicken, it was clear that spiced rubs can enrich a meal. The “Life of Spice” company offer a range of rubs to enhance flavours. I tried five individual rubs on some chicken legs, all distinct and very tasty.
Spice up your chicken with a homemade Jamaican jerk marinade. Whether it’s cooked al fresco on a Big Green Egg (or similar), or inside using an oven, this will undoubtedly delight and impress your dinner guests.
