Rubbed sirloin and crushed potato salad

Posted in Braai Recipes on May 15, 2013 by ribshackred

Rubbed sirloin and crushed potato saladA Wednesday evening calls for a braai and here’s a fantastic rubbed sirloin and crushed potato salad braai recipe. Great flavours to pair with a glass of Rib Shack Red.

 

 

Ingredients:

  • For the rub:
  • 50 g whole coriander
  • 25 g peppercorns
  • 50 g mustard seeds
  • 30 g coarse salt
  • 15 g paprika
  • For the salad:
  • 2 pieces of matured sirloin – 200 g each
  • 800 g baby potatoes – cooked in their skins
  • 50 g onions – chopped
  • 30 g capers – chopped
  • 50 g anchovies – chopped
  • 90 g olives – pips removed
  • 30 g parsley – chopped
  • olive oil
  • freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • black pepper and coarse sea salt

Method:

First up, combine all the rub spices in a mortar and pestle and give them a good bashing. Rub the ground spices into the meat until generously coated and leave to rest in the fridge for a couple of hours.

Once the braai is ready, whack the sirloin on to your braai-grid (hot coals) and grill on an open flame for about 7 minutes a side. You want the meat to be medium rare.

While the steaks are sizzling, start combining the salad – but remember to keep one eye on the meat!

Crush the cooked potatoes using the palm of your hand. You just want the skin to break open and to crush the potatoes lightly – try not to flatten them completely.

Add the chopped onions, capers, anchovies, olives and parsley. Drizzle with olive oil, a generous squeeze of lemon and cracked black pepper. Taste it before adding salt because the anchovies are very salty.

Mix the salad thoroughly then scoop on to plates. When the meat is done, let it rest for a few minutes then cut it into slices about 1 cm thick.

Put a couple of slices of sirloin on top of the potato salad and you’re done.

The Big Burger

Posted in Braai Recipes on May 2, 2013 by ribshackred

RibshackHere’s a great big burger recipe to try at the next braai. Great combination of flavours to pair excellent with a glass of Rib Shack Red.

Ingredients:

  • For the patties:
  • 1 kg beef mince
  • 300 g pork mince
  • 250 g very finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup choppped parsley
  • 2 Tbs sea salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup of your favourite basting sauce
  • Garnish
  • 8 breadrolls
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced, fried with some balsamic and sugar until caramalised
  • 1 block of Emmentaler cheese, thinly sliced
  • 3 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 bag of Cos Lettuce
  • 1 jar of pickled cucumbers (gerkins)

Method:

Combine the meat, onion and parsley in a mixing bowl and mix together well.
Once properly mixed, spread the mix out in the bowl so you can get salt and pepper spread out evenly.
Lightly beat the eggs and add to the mixture.
Mix until the egg is incorporated, then add the breadcrumbs and mix again.
Next, make the patties. You can use a patty press as the patties end up a bit sturdier and do not fall apart so easily.
When you are done, put them in the fridge for a while to set.
Toast the rolls in the oven to crisp them up a bit, otherwise they might lap up too much of the juices and become soggy. Just cut them open and pop them under the grill for a while until they are lightly brown.
Slice the tomatoes (always sprinkle tomatoes with a bit of salt, it brings out their sweetness), slice the cheese and wash the leaves.
Braai the patties over a medium high heat.
About 4 minutes before they reach your desired level of “doneness”, give them a dash of basting sauce and spread with a brush.
Once finished cooking, assemble the burgers.

PIZZA BRAAI

Posted in Braai Recipes on March 27, 2013 by ribshackred

PIZZA ON THE BRAAIHere’s an interesting pizza braai recipe to try for the long weekend. Great in taste and with a glass of Rib Shack Red.

 

The Base

1.        Go to your local supermarket’s bakery and ask them for a bag of dough.

2.       Cut the dough into squares (+/- 4×4 cm) and cover with a damp cloth to let it rise.

3.       Using a rolling pin roll each cube into a flat base just before putting it on the braai.

While your dough cubes are rising, make the fire in your Monolith or Kettle Braai and put the pizza stone on. If you have a temperature regulator, try to get the temperature as close to 220°C as possible.

 

The Sauce

Ingredients:

1 Medium Onion
2 Cloves Garlic
20 ml Tomato Puree
1 Can Diced Tomato
Salt
Pepper
Pinch of Oregano

Method:

1.       Sautee the chopped up onion and add the garlic once the onion starts to caramelize.
2.       Add Tomato puree and whole can of diced tomatoes.
3.       Add salt, pepper and oregano to taste.
4.       Simmer for 20 minutes.

Some people add 5 ml sugar to their sauce, but I will leave it up to you to decide if you want it or not.

Getting the pizza onto the braai without all the toppings falling off seems tricky, but it’s actually quite easy.

Do it this way:
Sprinkle some flour on tin foil and roll the dough out onto the foil. Before putting your toppings on put your rolled out base on the braai for about a minute or two so that the dough sets. Once it has set, take it off and add your sauce and toppings. It’s much easier to get it onto the braai with a spatula now.

Toppings:

A lot of mozzarella, other than that, be creative.

Put the pizza on the hot pizza stone (also sprinkled with flour) for 8-10 minutes. Delicious and fun to make. Enjoy.
