Pork Sate with homemade sate sauce

Yesterday, it was fantastic weather and I just had to light the grill once more. Nobody to cook for, so I kept it simple, but not less tasty!

For the sate I bought a pork tenderloin of about 400 grams. Not much, but it will do the trick just fine! I’ve cutted it up in a small cubes, most of them the same size, of course.

The next thing to do was to cut up, very finely, a spanish pepper, and about 3 cloves of garlic. I do love my garlic, and I’m not scared of it one bit! Very healthy too!

Just mix it in and add a nice shot of soy sauce and some good olive oil. Mix it all well and placed it in a ziplock bag and in the fridge for a nice overnight stay.

Next day, I fired up the grill and waited until it was simmering hot! I took the sate meat and placed it on wooden sticks, that I soaked a long time in water.

When the grill was ready, I placed them very shortly on the coals, turning them rather quickly. about 30 seconds per side.

After that, I moved them to an indirect spot. This is when I made the sate sauce, but more about that over here.

Once ready, just serve with some bread and enjoy! I know I did!

Honey glazed ham, love it!

Lazy monday, kings day in the Netherlands, and the weather is goohood! Again! Even though all the weather guys and dolls told us otherwise.

I have a little ham lying around that’s just begging me to be eaten today. Who am I to disappoint such a nice little ham?
After careful consideration of the ham’s feelings, I kind of pushed him to go into a nice honey glaze on the OTP using the indirect grilling method. He agreed, and so it shall be done.

Kansas Style ribs

What to do, what to make? To answer that question, the procedure in our house is rather simple. I go to the freezer, open the meat drawer and just take a look at what I’ve got and what feels good. Well. The first thing I saw, were some nice meaty rib racks.

Choice is made, it will be ribs. Now to figure out how to cook them this weekend. For that, I decided to open my new ‘bible’ from Steven Raichlen, which is a guru in my opinion. Pretty soon I had a lot of ideas about a lot of meat, but I was still looking for the ribs, in that case. ….

Sunday Ribs from the OTP

Apparently I don’t have a freezer big enough to hold my meat, so I needed to create some room. Needs to be said that cooking and eating is much more fun than gathering nice pieces of meat in a freezer, so I choose the ribs.

Took them out of the freezer on saturday and removed the rib skin.
