Amboi... lamanya tak menulis ni. bila sehari atau dua hari miss menulis, terus perasaan malas bertimpa timpa datang. tak bagus.
Anyway, on this ramadhan, i do cook a lot. some just typical food like kari ayam, kari kambing and on.. but some are just so new for me to cook. they turn out great just at taste, but in term of textures, and looks, not that good. But this mistake is good as i learn how to make it better.
So, one of the food that i have my first attempt of making it is the barbeque ribs grill. original recipe from south America. i love this beef rib barbeque grill as its so sweet and i dont really know how to describe but its so good. before, i need to go to chillies for this menu.
so, to make this bbq rib ni, the rib bukan di grill, tapi kene smoke (salai), kalau kt US, mereka guna things yang di panggil PIT, to smoke their ribs. so, i telah transform my grill into pit and smoke my ribs. huhuhu...
Antara kesilapan yang dilakukan:
i smoke tak cukup lama, it should be 5-6 hours, i just make i 3 hours, so dalamnya still undone n i have to cheat n put it in an oven for 30 minutes. tak tender lah macam kt chillies tu.. tu saja mistake. the dry rub (for marinating) and the sauce dah marvelous dah.
i should basting my ribs every hours!. so its not dry. ini betul-betul lupa... T__T
i lupa nak pesan pada si butcher for not cutting my ribs to small (lihat gambar) should just cut the rib two, so cantik.
so, kalau dilihat, charcoal bukan directly dibawah daging, tapi di tepi, atas, letak air daging sebelah dan dibawah daging ada satu bekas untuk menakung all the juices yang keluar dari daging.lepas tu, tutup kedap semua. let the smoke cooks everything.
Penat study cara nak smoke ini. hehe. alih-alih atas kesilapan kecil, its not turn out as it should be. frust tapi next time dah tau apa silap. :)
So, this is one of may kitchen-lab works. ade few more, including homemade teriyaki sauce (yummy), and few kuih and dessert. :)
next entry la ya...
oh ya, i will post this rib recipe after i manage to get my rib tender, and juicer. :)
p/s: dont stop trying!
