A Sizzling Summer Barbecue: Three Treats to Try

The invites have gone out via Facebook and you’ve bought enough booze to rival a small pub. So, what’s next on your tick-list ahead of your summer barbecue? You’ll want to ensure you have plenty of great recipes to hand, that’s what. Well, good news for you, then: it’s your lucky day!

Move over burnt sausages, we’re bringing you five fun recipes from around the net to ensure your barbecue is one to remember.


Chinese Style Barbecue Pork

We had an idea the folks over at Weber wouldn’t disappoint when it comes to simple and tasty barbecue food recipes – and we were right.

This Chinese-style pork recipe will have you dusting off your barbecue faster than you can say ‘the sun’s out!’. Taking just five minutes to prepare and a further 10 minutes to cook, this barbecued treat will be ready in no time at all – make sure you head over to the Weber blog to see the full recipe.

And here’s a quick tip from the Weber team: Remove the pork from the fridge 30 minutes before you’re due to cook it. This will help to take the chill off and will allow it to come up to room temperature, giving more tender even results.

Spicy Hot Dogs with Sweet and Sour Glaze

What would a barbecue be without hotdogs? This recipe (via the Tesco site) takes the humble hotdog and adds a dash of spice to ensure your summer soiree really sizzles. In terms of ingredients, you don’t need that much though.

Make sure you have some pork hotdogs, of course. And you’ll also need some oil, brioche hot dog rolls, a spring onion, some coriander leaves and a few condiments. Again, don’t forget to take a look at the full recipe over on the Tesco site.

A great recipe the whole family will love, these spicy hot dogs are so easy to make you’ll want to give them a go every night of the week.

Chicken Avocado Burgers

We love the Laughing Spatula blog, as it’s jam-packed with recipes we just can’t wait to try. This one – a chicken avocado burger special – is no exception. Cook these on a grill pan indoors, or give them a go on a barbecue – either way they’ll taste great.

Oh, and here’s a tip via the blog as well: when mixing the avocados and forming the patties – go gently to keep the avocado chunks intact. Using a more firm avocado will help as well.

So, there you have it! If you’re looking to add something a little bit different to your summer barbecue menu, you can’t go far wrong with one of these recipes. And if you do try any of them, don’t forget to let us know what you think by commenting here on our blog (below).
