Let’s try beef 3

Friday, July 21st, 2017 | Activities, Food, Insights | No Comments

A friend of mine told me there is something like “reverse bbq” – first, cook the meat in an oven at the desired heat and when it is done let it kiss the sizzle zone of your bbq. Okay, this is my try.

I was shopping and saw this T-Bone steak.


Put it into the oven for 20min at medium rare temperature. I was not overly happy with the result, as my oven is shit so I cooked it longer and hotter as I intended in the first place.


But the bbq was hot by then 😀


And after another few minutes.

I had a late night dinner. I did not like it too much, I guess the beef steak is still my favourite meat. Right now I am fed up with red meat. I opt for Schinken Krakauer again at the moment. Yummy left-over sausages!

Let’s try beef #2

Thursday, July 6th, 2017 | Activities, Food, Insights | No Comments

This time I just bought a steak and grilled it. No frills.

The steak. A regular beef steak, I thought I can hardly foobar the most standard beef available.

Grilled. Seasoned. Served. 😛

Medium rare. Yes! \m/

It worked. Even though the meat quality itself was somewhat subpar (supermarket meat counter) the outcome was just what I wished for. The days of shitty minute steaks from the discounter are definitely over. I may stick to the occasionally sausage though (just love my Schinken-Krakauer) but no more cheap meat for me.

Let’s try beef #1

Saturday, July 1st, 2017 | Activities, Food, Insights | No Comments

I recently attended Santos Pure Beef seminar – which was great yet I can hardly say I was able to absorb all the meat cutting techniques let alone become a bbq sensei. This is my first attempt to bbq something else than sausages and minute steaks.

The meat I wanted to buy was not available (Teres Major), so I bought the cheapest part that still looked decent, a “Bürgermeisterstück” aka Tri-tip – in case I foobared this one it would not be too much of a loss. That whole lump cost €8.99.

The seasoning was easy. Just some salt and pepper.

Maxed out my grill at 350 °C (~660 °F).

Cross grillage brandings. (Couple of minutes each side)

So, this is the result. Looks great from the outside. (30 minutes, indirect, one burner on minimum flame ~ 120 °C)

Unfortunately I overcooked it. It was in between medium well and well. Bummer. But hey, it was my fist try and the taste was still very good 🙂 Next time I might only bbq the outer parts and use an oven at ~80 °C for maybe 20 min to finish it.
