BBQ veal steak

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings)

  • 1 kg veal hanger steak, deboned

Pour the marinade

  • 1 strong beer (or any beer you have on hand or sitting in the fridge )
  • 2 tsp grated ginger root
  • 100 ml (1/3 cup) maple syrup
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 6 cloves garlic, halved
  • 6 cracks freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • or 4 tsp smoky spice rub, generic BBQ sauce or Marie Michèle Jerk Blend

 

DIRECTIONS

 

Step 1 : Preparing the meat

  • Remove the membrane from the meat.
  • Place the veal steak in a bag.
  • Add the marinade and refrigerate for 24 to 48 hours.

 

Step 2 : BBQ

  • Preheat your barbecue grill.
  • Sear the meat to create a browned crust and lock in the juices.
  • Turn the meat every 10 minutes.
  • Brush the meat with the marinade with each turn.
  • Finish cooking the meat by grilling indirectly on the barbecue 60°C/140°F. Now it’s time to start grilling the vegetables.
  • For medium-rare, cook a 70°C/160°F. If a guest prefers more thoroughly cooked meat, serve them a piece from the end of the steak.
  • For well-done, cut the meat into slices and grill them until desired doneness.

 

For oven cooking: first sear the hanger steak in a skillet for approximately 90 seconds on each side and finish cooking in a 325°F oven. Allow 5 minutes for rare, 10 minutes for medium, and 30 minutes for well-done.
