Saturday evening is Braai time in South Africa, thus we had a few good friends over for a Braai!! We decided to Braai some nice beef fillets and some chicken drum sticks for the occasion. My wife set the table in anticipation for the people to arrive.
In the mean time I got the fire going - a real wood fire - this braai was for men braaiing, not for the boys, who use gas!! No @BraaiBoy 's here!! LOL
My lovely wife brought out some snacks to nibble on, while the fire was burning.
All this hard work and the extra hot fire, made me thirsty, thus it was time to test some more Erdinger Beers!! This time it was the Pikantus that I choose!!
It poured beautifully, with a dark color and a nice, white head!! It tasted as it looked - great!! These Erdinger beers are just great!!
All to soon the glass was only half full, but just look at that fire blazing away!!
Like I said in the video, I only used lemon juice and soya sauce to marinate the meat and then added some grounded salt and black pepper to the meat, just before braaiing!! The meat came perfect, nice and crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.
After cutting the meat in medallions, we gave it another short stint over the coals!! Perfect!!
My wife made some salad, small baked potatoes and pumpkin pie to go with the meat - delicious!!
As I am writing this post, I am extremely hungry again, thinking back to that delicious food and the great evening we had. My wife also made some chocolate moose for desert, but I forgot to take a photo, she easily makes the best chocolate moose, I have ever tasted!!
I hope you enjoyed the post, as much as I enjoyed creating it!!
