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.

Burning out my new bbq – holy moly!

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011 | Activities, Tech-savvy | No Comments

Last weekend my new bbq was in service for quite some time. The grease was thick and sturdy, so I did what bbq experts recommend: burnout! Fire up your grill to max and wait until there is no more smoke and you are done. So I was told. After 10 minutes the bbq was as hot as 400° Celsius (752° Fahrenheit) and I took a peek inside. The complete thing was burning from the inside! Yikes!

I guess I went a little bit over the top … now the dirt on the lid is burned in, too 🙂 Anyway, the grid is clean again and prepared for the next sessions.
