BBQ Or Oven Meatballs

I thought I share with you the bbq meatballs we just recently did on our wood fired bbq. Itโ€™s a great way of cooking them. The smoke and meat flavor makes you hungry ๐Ÿ™‚ Something you cannot resist! They also taste yummy if you cook them in the oven. No problem at all.

Our meatballs ingredients:

  • beef mince
  • onions, the more juicy you want them at the end, the more onions you put in 😉
  • garlic
  • mustard
  • chili, we blend it together with onions before adding into the meat
  • egg or two
  • soy souse
  • salt
  • black pepper

Just mix together and enjoy! You can put them on a tray and bake in the oven on about 180 degrees Celsius if you donโ€™t have a bbq.

Lamb Chops Left Overs

This is what you can do with your lamb chops leftovers from your last night bbq. We love to cook with leftovers. Half the work is mostly done because you got the main ingredient already and you can create something new and special out of it.

This picture shows the beautiful dinner from leftovers created by Seb and I ๐Ÿ™‚

Seb’s BBQ Lamb Chops

Simple and good country food. I just love the BBQ chops how my husband is cooking them so I had to share his recipe with you. Prepare them as soon as possible and allow to infuse the whole goodness of the marinade for at least two hours. Perfect would be to leave it over night in a fridge.

Marinade for the lamb chops:

  • garlic
  • onion
  • chili
  • rosemary
  • turmeric
  • ginger
  • olive oil
  • some tomatoes
  • salt & pepper
  • soy souse

I didnโ€™t put any specific amount how much of each as it depends on your personal liking and taste and of course how many chops you have. You blend it all together in a pot and put the chops in there. Make sure all of them got the marinade on them on both sides. Donโ€™t just chuck them in as the ones on top will not get any of the marinade up and you want them all to taste good.

Thatโ€™s pretty much it. Now, the only thing you need now its a hot BBQ, a man who will look after them and a glass of wine ๐Ÿ™‚ Enjoy!

Sweet Chili Sauce

Why would you do your own sweet chili sauce?

  • because you have plenty of chilies in your garden or…
  • you have read the ingredients on the sweet chili sauce bottle you bought at the supermarket
Okay, I got lots of chilies but I also did read the ingredients on the bottle because I wanted to find out what could I use and I didn’t understand why they had to add colors and flavors. Chili got enough flavor I would say. I also didn’t like the preservatives  in the supermarket bottle so here we go! This is my chili sauce I do. 
Simple Recipe How Yo Make Sweet Chili Sauce
  • 300-400g chilies
  • 6-8 cloves garlic
  • some ginger and or turmeric
  • 2 cups of white vinegar 
  • 2 cups of raw sugar
  • dash of salt
Combine the chili, garlic and ginger/turmeric in a food processor.
Dissolve the sugar in vinegar on small heat, add crashed chili mix and simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Stir in between. You know that your sauce is ready when you see that it doesn’t run away when you put a small amount of it on a cold plate.
Fill in prepared glasses, close tightly and leave to cool. You can keep it u to 6 months in you pantry.
Where you can use the sweet chili sauce:
  • to marinate meat
  • add to a mayonnaise and enjoy with chips or other snacks
  • put few drops on your sandwich to add flavor and a bit of heat
  • add to your every day meal
  • add to any stir fried food, noodles and rice dishes
  • did I forget anything? ๐Ÿ˜‰
Tipps:
  • 1 cup is 250ml
  • Preparing glasses: I wash them with a dish washing detergent and warm water. Then, I rinse the glasses and lids with a fresh cooked hot water and dry the glasses on a clean towel. 

 Here the video how I do it ๐Ÿ™‚
