Barbecuing is an easy way to cook, and a popular way to entertain. Beef and lamb are both very easy to barbecue, choose from delicious steaks, cutlets or beef or lamb kebabs.
Top tips for BBQing
– Coat the meat in oil instead of adding oil to the barbecue grill or hotplate. If the meat has been marinated lightly pat it dry with absorbent paper (this helps the meat brown rather than stew). – Ensure the barbecue is hot before you cook; the meat should sizzle as it makes contact with the plate or grill. – Cook one side until the first sign of moisture appears on the upper side, turn and cook other side. Turn once only for rare and medium. For well-done turn a second time once moisture re-appears and reduce temperature until cooked. Use tongs rather than a barbecue fork to turn the meat. – For the best results steaks over 30mm in thickness that are cooked above medium should also be finished in a hot oven, or with the barbecue hood down.
