BBQ with deer

June 24th, 2018 | main dishes

I like deer. In any form. I like deer so much that they can eat everything in our garden almost unhindered,  without really taking any serious action against it – from the tulip to the apple tree, from the phlox to the cranesbill. But of course that’s another “liking”. The culinary “liking” in this case refers to finely marinated deer steak from the grill. Who says that game must always come as a roast?

A good friend brought us a whole deer just before Christmas … “You always like to cook.” Wow, I could only say: back, club, shoulder, neck, ribs. Exciting, what I can cook out of all these pieces. Everything was well parried, portioned, frozen. And the club we have broken down into its parts. We cut wonderful steaks from it – a dream for BBQ!

The recipe for the wild herb salad can be found by clicking HERE.

Venison steak with wild herb salad and asparagus

(4 portions – attention: meat must be marinated for several hours)

150-200 g venison steak per person
100 ml olive oil
4 sprigs of rosemary
4 thyme branches
1-2 ts spice mixture for game
whisk the olive oil with the spices, place the meat and herbs in the oil, cover and chill for several hours or marinate overnight, turning now and then
grill steaks on the hot grill for 2-3 minutes each side
500 g asparagus
peel, cut obliquely into pieces, brush with olive oil
grill on the grill plate (or in the pan) until the asparagus is ‘al dente’ and has nice roasted stripes (about 10-12 minutes)
pepper from the mill, coarse sea salt
nutmeg, freshly grated
spice up and serve with the steak and wild herb salad

Sea service fitness and the doctor with the teddies

You might think you are in the waiting room of a pediatrician practice. But no. At the latest when we enter the room with the hundreds of teddies in sailor suits, I know: “Now, it starts again.” We are in the seaman’s outpatient clinic with Doctor Jan-Gerd Hagelstein. In a few days my dearest captain will leave to sign on his next ship.

We were there again.

Bifteki with grilled watermelon

Bifteki thats the Greek name for minced steaks. A short trip to Greece, that’s it. Currently, we do not have to complain in northern Germany about lack of sunshine. This summer, even the holiday on our balcony is fun. And with Bifteki from the grill, we get the ultimate culinary holiday feeling.
