Muscle Food Mondays- BBQ Tuna Steaks

imageHi

So i had a manic weekend with a massive mud run over the Nuclear races in Ongar it was super fun and i will probably make a blog on it over the week at some point. But i wanted to post something for my BBQ series and was raiding the fridge as i hadn’t really accounted for how busy i would be over the past 2 day. now my BBQ has a pan frying option on the side so i am going to quickly show you a way to do a tuna steak for those who enjoy foods other than your traditional meats. With the weather in mind its not exactly BBQ time of writing so i will do this inside but the method is the same. lastly when i was considering how to flavour this the rest of the BBQ range has made me consider that this dish does not need to pack a whole bunch of flavour as there is allot of strong flavours in the pallet already so i have kept it simple

 

Ingredents

  • 1 Tuna Steaks
  •  1 Lemons
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Pepper

Method

  1. Pre heat pans to a medium to high heat
  2. Rub salt and pepper into the tuna steaks
  3. Glaze with a tiny bit of oil on all sides
  4. Cook fast no more than 90 seconds per side
  5. slice up a lemon and pour over the juice when done and serve

This works well with a salad to balance out some of that rest meat your going to consume in vast quantities it also give you a cooking option for this that are not red or white meat eaters. and it will make them still part of the BBQ experience.

Hopefully the weather this weekend is better than today and you can get the BBQ out

Muscle Food Monday- Beef Hash Steaks with Salad

Hi

So this easter weekend has been manic had so much on with clients and seeing friends and having a 13 hour sleep to recover from a lack of sleep over the weekend i was kinda thinking of palming this weeks blog off. That said and in all honesty i didnt get the ingredients for the salad i wanted to do in a jar and for that i apologise. but i did want to post something and that something was still good. i ordered these british hash steaks a while back and to be honest they are amazing. i will add maybe hammering them down and flattening them out would be a great idea to do first but as long as they are cooked through its all good.

simple salad but a fair amount of it

 

The Salad

nothing fancy here you can mix up any salad but i went with;

  • onion
  • cucumber
  • tomato
  • lettuce
  • pepper
  • celery
IMG_0347
should have hammered that down a bit to thin it out. was quite thick to cook through

The Steaks

so these i literally had cooking for 3-4 min each side and had to check they were cooked through before eating as these are close to burgers so you don’t really want there to be any red in the middle.

I will add i cooked these in Ghee some people like it some don’t but it cooks well and smells good.

So this looks great and tastes great if your doing as I’m suggesting with the salad jars and you should be by now this can be whipped up after work for a super quick time of 5 min so no excuses really.

until next week

Muscle Food Monday-Ribs and Sweet Potato Wedges.

ok so this is a learning curve for both my self and anyone that reads these blogs. This week was an experiment i wanted to make sweet potato wedges and i did want burgers with them but ended up having ribs because my old man had brought some and prepped them withought me knowing. little side note the ribs were not that good i will make a blog about how to do ribs properly so for now I’m going to focus on the wedges and how i did them this week.

 

MethodIMG_1092.JPG
With just a splash of oil and a pinch of seasoning and spice, you can turn the humble potato into delicious homemade wedges.

1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF/gas 6.

2. Wash the potatoes under cold running water, scrubbing well with a scrubber to get rid of any dirt (there’s no need to peel them).

3. On a chopping board, cut each potato in half lengthways, then cut each half in half lengthways, and then each piece in half again soIMG_1098.JPG you end up with 8 wedges or more.

4. boil them in a saucepan for 10 min

5. Sprinkle over a tiny pinch of salt and pepper, and the paprika on a baking tray.

6. Spread out into a single layer over a large baking trays sprinkle more paprika on, then bake in the hot oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden and cooked through.

8. Use oven gloves to remove the trays from the oven, then leave to sit for a couple of minutes (this will make it easier to remove them from the tray), then use a fish slice to transfer them to a serving dish.
