BBQ Grab and Cook Bags
We are a huge fan of BBQ’s in this family…. Whatever the British weather throws at us!
Ever wake up and the sun is shining bright? All plans for the day change, as you decide you are going to forgo the children’s swimming or piano lessons and whip home early for a family BBQ and play in the garden?
I love nights like these, but I hate the fact that it usually falls to me to run to the supermarket on the glorious hot day and make quick decisions on what to grab for the BBQ! No longer, my friend shall this be the case, let’s BBQ NO COOK BAG!
Benefits of BBQ no cook bags
1. You can split packs of meat into each bag saving money.
2. You already have the BBQ bag in your freezer for whatever day you choose
3. Everything you need (except the salad) is in the bag.
Take a small sealable freezer bag and add 3 chicken breasts cut into chunks, add 80ml of BBQ sauce to the bag mix and seal it with no air left in bag.
Next add 4 sausages to a large freezer bag.
Take 2 steaks, marinate with olive oil and steak seasoning, in a small freezer bag (I like to use a ½ a beef stock cube grated into the olive oil, but there are lots of steak seasonings out there.)
Add the chicken and steak bag to the sausage bag, cut a large green pepper into quarters and add to the bag, and 4 small corn on the cob to the large bag and seal.
You can add anything to your bags, depending on what you like to eat when barbecuing. See my burger recipe for great burgers on the BBQ. You just have to remember and keep the raw chicken separate from the rest of the ingredients.
Hey presto you have a BBQ bag ready to pull out whenever needed.
In true batch style I always make 4 bags at a time, as making 4 bags is as easy as 1.
Even as the weather cools and we can no longer eat outside, we can often be found barbecuing in the rain under an umbrella, we simply eat inside instead of out.
