Everyone needs BBQ recipes in their life. When it comes to summer and the sun is sizzling, whats better than cooking outside? Check out some of my best recipes below.
Stuffed corn on the cob.
1 tbs. Chopped oregano
½ tsp. Pepper
1 tsp. Chopped garlic
½ cup of tomato puree or sauce
2 tbs. Molasses
1 tsp. Kosher salt
8 ears of cleaned corn
On a lovely summers day, it’s time to get out the BBQ, but burgers and sausages are not enough. You need to enjoy other recipes.
BBQ sweet corn on the cob is my favourite. If you follow this guide you will get the most mesmerising taste.
To start you need to preheat your grill to medium heat. Now mix all of your ingredients together to create a lovely paste, ignore adding the corn at this moment.
Now brush all of your ingredients over the corn and make sure its all coated, you need to do this
Cook the corn for roughly 3-4 minutes on each side, until you have a nice charcoal colour, and remember to add the paste over the tops everytime you turn it.
BBQ mushrooms are my favourite recipe, I also love the fact that my vegetarian friends can enjoy it too!
To start you will need to large flat cap mushrooms for each person, start by washing them and peeling them and then get some foil and place the mushrooms upside down.
Now get some pesto and cover the grills, this will add flavour to the mushrooms. finally keep cooking the mushrooms until they have a soft texture.
Mushroom with Roule
This one is nice and easy. Get a large open mushroom and proceed to fill it with olive oil, then add soya sauce and finish off with some roule cheese.
After your done, get some tin foil and wrap the mushroom, then cook it.
To start, you will need to boil some rice, I recommend doing this first as it’s the easiest. Now get your peppers and cut the head off.
Place the boiled rice that you just cooked into a bowl.
Now, start stuffing your peppers with some grated cheddar cheese, and some meat, I recommend bacon to compliment, but this can be substituted for other meats such as sausage.
Start seasoning and then add back onto the barbecue.
BBQ Mushrooms with Cheese
BBQ mushrooms and cheese is my favourite.
Start with large flat mushrooms (Hopefully you have some left over) and get some cheese, preferable stilton.
Next, take your slices of cheese and place them around the mushroom (not on it)
If you are creating the slices yourself, then I recommend around 2cm thickness.
Now grab some worcester sauce and cover the mushroom, and add some pepper.
To finish, place the mushroom on a barbecue, and gently cook. You will know once its cooked once the cheese melts into the mushroom.
Chargrilled new potatoes
2 tsp Garlic Italian Pasta Sauce Seasoning
3 tbs olive oil
½ tsp salt
To start it off, get your potatoes threaded onto 4 skewers. Now wrap them all in tin foil and get it on the barbecue for around 30 minutes. Once you think it’s done, poke with a knife to see if it slides in easily. If it does, it’s ready for the next step.
Gently begin to remove the foil, and start to add the paste sauce ingredients with salt and oil to create a lovely potato baste.
Now baste it over the potatoes and place it back on the barbecue for around 3-4 minutes, make sure you do not burn it!
Now, you have some great recipes above, but as with all cooking, you need to ensure you have all the correct kitchen equipment.
For example, if you are wanting to peel potatoes, you need to make sure you have the best potato peeler, otherwise you are going to end up with rough textures.
Personally, before I became a chef, I made sure I had all the professional equipment so I didn’t struggle while learning new recipes. I have a blog which is all about the different equipment you can get for your kitchen, and the best tips and tricks to care for your equipment here at kitchenoa.com
