Week 18 : BBQ
Recipe : Beef Kofte and Bulgogi
Cook Book : Ben’s Barbecue by Ben O’Donoghue
Since we fixed up the back yard, we love hanging out there on balmy evenings. Even better, we are now able to cook on our barbecue and eat al fresco.
This week’s challenge was BBQ. I scoured through my cookbooks to find a marinade for some lamb chops and beef mince that I had in the freezer. I found a couple from Ben’s barbecue cook book. I got this book for my birthday last year and this was the first time I actually used it. Thanks Cook book Challenge!
I found two marinades that I wanted to try.
For the Beef kofte, it’s not really a marinade but more of a seasoning. It’s best to let this mixture sit for about half an hour for the flavours to infuse, then mould them into patties or sausages before barbecuing them.
