6 steps for the perfect barbecue!
You’re inviting the whole family for lunch and you’re looking for an easy and tasty menu to prepare? How about you try barbecue, it’s great for gatherings and it’s really easy and hassle free if you follow these 6 steps!
1- Prepare your ingredients ahead of time
Plan the barbecue in advance, whether you’re preparing chicken, meat or fish, let them thaw in the fridge overnight safely in separate bowls. Cut them to your preference and get ready for the next step.
2- Get your marinade ready
You can’t have great barbecue if you don’t season and marinate your ingredients. It’s the golden rule for juicy and tender grilled chicken and meat. Don’t hesitate to add your favorite veggies, they will make your barbecue even tastier! You can try this grilled chicken marinade or the grilled steak with mushroom sauce.
3- Skewer cubed meat and chicken
Once your meat and chicken are well marinated, pat them with an absorbent paper to remove the excess of juices then thread them in wooden or stainless steel skewers alternating with sliced vegetables such as mushrooms, colored bell peppers and even eggplants!
4- Clean your grill
Whether it’s an electric, gas or a charcoal grill, clean the wire rack well before using it and give it a good scrape to remove any food residue. You can oil it to prevent the food to stick. Preheat the grill before placing the skewers on it.
5- Start grilling
Nothing is more fun than the grilling part, do it in batches and don’t overload your grill. For instance, space your skewers, if you’re grilling chicken and meat, do it separately. Don’t turn them too often to avoid losing the juices.
6- Serve hot
Remove your grilled food and place it immediately in bread loaves to keep it warm. Serve immediately along your side dishes, such as potato chips or salads.
