Al Fresco Cooking Recipes!
My Al Fresco Cooking Recipes are embracing a newly found love of grilling and barbecuing, sitting in my garden with my wife, great food and good wine is my idea of heaven. Don’t think you will only get a meat feast here, there is plenty of fish and vegetarian stuff too!
My latest BBQ recipe is a burger, you cannot go wrong with a good burger and this venison burger is superb! You could be forgiven for thinking that I don't necessarily think less is more when it comes to cooking. But for all of my recipes with dozens of ingredients I have many with just a few.
Do I have a treat for you with these bacon-wrapped grilled stuffed onions! Where on earth do I start, grilled onions are amazing, smokey, sweet and glorious. But then wrap them in bacon and yowsers. Hold your horses though these are stuffed onions, stuffed with a fennel and Worcestershire sauce meatball... Then to blow your mind just a little bit more glazed with a BBQ sauce.
Let's just say I am loving being outside right now and that is exactly where I am typing up this Grilled Rump Steak With Chimichurri Sauce recipe. Kind of apt as it was both where it was cooked and consumed.
This BBQ chicken pizza is close as I can get to a proper “old skool” pizza cooked in a pizza oven, the BBQ packs much more heat than you can achieve with a domestic oven and that smokey flavour adds something that can not be replicated.
These glorious BBQ Sriracha Glazed Wings are my latest recipe from the grill and bizarrely enough it has been a fairly long time since the last one, both life and the weather got all sort of busy since I posted my Duck Kebab recipe, just like that one this one comes packed with a video too.
I just had to kick of this years BBQ fun with these BBQ duck kebabs, simple classical flavours that work really well together in a recipe that has a little Asian leaning but perfect for early summer and late spring.
Now the BBQ can't quite reach those temperatures but they are capable of reaching temperatures higher than most domestic ovens, I get mine up towards 320°C but you also get that tell tale char as well as a light smokey flavour that is so associated with a good tandoori chicken.
Hence my difficulty, this cabbage steak is not a sub for a steak it is what it is, a fabulously tasty slice of a much maligned and underused vegetable, sure it is not cool and trendy, but boy is it tasty!
If there is a food type that I am not to familiar with it is Mexican, it is one of those foods that has barely made its way across the Atlantic and it is a food type I have been reading about for about a year and trying to come up with ideas to make it my own.
So here they are, grilled BBQ ribs, I did cheat somewhat by cooking them in the oven long and slow to ensure the meat was still tender and juicy before finishing them on the grill with my favourite BBQ glaze.
I love stuffed mushrooms, hell I just love mushrooms and whilst I have been cooking outdoors over the last few weeks I have fallen in to the trap of being a bit of a meathead, sure I have done my grilled trout, but in reality it has been protein all the way.
