A Meaty Offer from Bespoke. Including a BBQ sauce recipe and Basil and Lemon Chicken.

1378444_10151991737692664_1797659667_nVery recently the lovely people at Bespoke Offers came to me and offered me the chance to review one of their amazing offers – and boy was there a lot to choose from! For example, at the moment they have 20% off Best Western Stays, a Tiffany-inspired sterling silver bracelet for just £13.99 instead of £69.99 and you can save 54% on a butcher’s steak selection now priced at £29.

Despite the fact that we are now well into Autumn, we choice the BBQ meat selection from Highland Foods. All meat is organic and includes the following:-

 

 

• 4 × 4oz sirloin steaks
• 4 x pork steaks
• 4 × 4oz lamb steaks
• 4 x lamb chops
• 4 × 4oz beef burgers
• 1 x rack marinated pork ribs
• 10 x chicken wings
• 6 x chicken drumsticks
• 2lb beef sausages
• 3 x kofta kebabs
• 4 x Kobe wagyu burgers

Unfortunately the weather here in Somerset hasn’t been up to much but that didn’t stop us emulating a BBQ style meal inside. I marinaded the chicken wings in my own barbecue sauce.

Homemade Barbecue SauceBBQ Chicken

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp grain mustard
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2-3 tsp muscovado sugar
  • 300ml/10fl oz water
  1. Heat the oil in a small saucepan, add the onion and garlic. Gently saute stirring frequently for 3 minutes or until beginning to soften. Remove from the heat
  2. Blend the tomato puree with the mustard, vinegar and worcestershire sauce to a paste and then stir into the onion mixture with 2 teaspoons of the sugar. Mix well, then gradually stir in the water.
  3. Return to the heat and bring to the boil, stirring frequently. Reduce the heat and gently simmer, stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. Taste and add the remaining sugar, if wanted.
  4. Leave to cool. Put the chicken in a dish and pour over the barbecue sauce to ensure it is well-covered.

I left the chicken over night in the fridge to marinade and then baked it in the oven the following evening. We had this with chips. Our very own indoor BBQ!

I also made Basil and Lemon chicken using the drumsticks. The recipe is as follows:

Basil and Lemon ChickenBasil and Lemon Chicken

Ingredients

  • 6 Free Range Chicken Pieces
  • Olive Oil
  • 2 Juicy Cloves of Garlic
  • a lemon
  • a large handful of basil(about 30 leaves)
  • a wine glass of white wine

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C/Gas mark 6
  2. Season the chicken and put the pieces in a roasting tin. Pour over enough olive oil to moisten them and make a shallow pool in the tin.
  3. Squash the garlic in its skin and tuck it in with the chicken. Squeeze the lemon over the chicken and drop the empty lemon shells in too.
  4. Roast for 30 minutes in the oven, then tear up the basil leaves and toss them about into the chicken. Return to the oven for 10 minutes
  5. Remove from the oven, pour the wine over the chicken, then put the roasting tin over a hot flame and let the wine bubble for a minute.
  6. Serve with roast potatoes and vegetables or a green salad.

 

We have also eaten the cumberland sausages made into a Tuscan Sausage casserole.  I am looking forward to cooking with more of the meat and hopefully giving you so more mouth-watering recipes.

Disclosure: I was given the BBQ meat selection worth £49 in return for this review. All opinions and words are my own and have not been influenced in any way.
