Barbeque

Barbeque, of any kind, is my favorite. I can’t go swimming without pork barbeque in my food basket. My kids love barbeque, but they prefer hotdog with marshmallow more. But, let me share with you my style of barbeque. I learned this recipe from one of the barbeque websites on the net. You, too, can research on the internet for a barbeque recipe.

You will need:

7 lbs pork steaks
1/8 cup of pork seasoning flavor
4 bay leaves
1 tsp of salt, iodized will do
2 tsp of minced red pepper
36 ounces of barbeque sauce
1 1/2 cups of vinegar

Mix pork seasoning flavor, bay leaves, salt, red pepper, vinegar, and barbeque sauce all together in a bowl. Cover the pork steaks with the mixed sauce, let it stay over night. The next day, bring the pork steak into medium heat charcoaled grill. If the pork is cooked and tender, remove the pork from the grill. Place it in serving place, and enjoy with fruits and salad.

Outdoor Grilling Safety

Summer time is here! The weather is the perfect time to enjoy the great outdoors with barbecues and buffets. Have you ever considered cooking you favorite barbeque recipes right in the comfort of your own backyard? Outdoor grilling can be fun especially if the whole family participates in cooking. However, without the necessary precautions, accidents might happen. Children, most especially, are apt to getting burned. At the same time, adults find it difficult to control the fire while grilling.

Safety matters for a delightful outdoor grilling experience. We should not take things for granted as if having fun is the same as carelessness. We could start by cleaning and checking the grills before the first barbecue to make sure that they have no traces of rust that may harm the food we cook. Secondly, we have to secure the spot where we are to place the grill — it should not stand near the house to prevent contact to the walls that may cause fire accidents. At the same time, do not proceed in grilling if the wind blows hard for this will interfere in our controlling the charcoal fire. When it comes to charcoals, it is not advisable to put fluid or any flammable liquid on it just to set the fire higher. Lastly, after grilling, extinguish coals properly by pouring enough water on it.

A Richer Rib Sauce

As previously mentioned in an earlier post, ribs are great for barbecues. They are fantastic appetizers and a great meal in itself as well. You know what would make those ribs more scrumptious? A rich barbecue sauce! I’ve seen most people use ketchup as an ingredient in making their barbecue sauce. Well, that’s fine but if you want a richer, thicker sauce, you’re better off using tomato paste and tomato sauce. Believe me, its way better than using your favorite condiment for your sauce.

Here are the things you need to make a rich barbecue rib sauce:

1 can tomato sauce
1 can tomato paste
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic crushed
4 tablespoons minced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne
fresh ground pepper to taste

Now that you have gathered all the ingredients, the first thing you want to do is cook the onions and garlic in the olive oil until the onion turns opaque. Then, simply add all the ingredients in the pot. Mix them thoroughly and let it sit simmering for 20 minutes. This recipe makes about 1 1/2 cups.
