Now that the days are getting longer the itch to grill is back.
I tried to suppress but it was impossible today.
In the end grilling is life.
I decided to start early, around 17:30 so I had one small hour of natural light.
The last time I fired her up was at Christmas.
O, I missed this!
I had no idea what I would find after removing the cover. Unused for over 5 weeks! If you wonder what all the junk is. That's to prefent the cover from blowing off when we had that mega storm not to long ago.
Not bad! Except for the small amount of water. I do feel that I will need to find a better solution to prevent that in the future.
The inside of the grill was fine! I removed all the ash gave it a quick clean for now. Soon I remove all the parts from the inside and give it a spring cleaning.
Fresh coals! YES!
End so we begin. The first grill session of 2018!
This is meat I grilled (It's called Blade steak). It's cheap yet extremely underrated. This cost me $7. In the Netherlands it's been used for decades to make stews but it's also perfect for steaks if you can find the one with good marbling. There is a sinew in the middle that it's a little tough but edible or you can cut around it later. If you ask a butcher they can also remove it before hand.
The coals I use burn hot and fast. Ideal for fast grill sessions. It took 10-15 to get the grill to 300C.
Steaks on! I was going for 2 minutes per side. Another reason I wanted to use cheaper meat is to get the feeling of grilling back without fearing a meat failure :)
I missed this! The Smell and the warmth coming from the grill. It's so much fun.
I flipped the steaks after 2 minutes and grilled the other side. I checked the temp and it was around 55C. Perfect I like my steaks rare.
I put the steaks in aluminium foil to rest for 5 minutes. In the meantime I got my other iron tools and put them on the grill to Burn clean. If you look closely you can see two grills and the cast iron top.
End result! I think I still got it. Nicely Rare with a good crust. It's not a cut that will be extremely tender. You do have to chew but the flavour is fantastic! I served the Steak with some leftover lasagna that Bianca and I shared.
