For the first time in my life, I was given the chance to cook great steaks on the BGE with authentic, homemade chimichurri sauce. I could not pass up this opportunity and neither should you.
This is the story of cooking a bone-in ham on a Big Green Egg on a cruising sailboat for Christmas. Nothing less, nothing more….except I’m gonna use a lot of words you might think are dirty, but context people!
On this occasion, Tulum was in Golfito, Costa Rica with good access to local shopping but of course, when shopping locally you get what you can get….so some of the ingredients in my recipes are just not always available and I often have to adapt or revise the recipe for what I have on hand. This recipe is no different but it turned out really, really good, so I’m gonna share in case you want to cook it too-
When we do have great weather and we’re not underway, we do everything we can to cook great meals on the Big Green Egg. It’s easy, ifun, a great conversation starter and I love the time in our 2nd owners cockpit with great music and a cold drink, working on dinner for the family.
Hell yeah we LOVE to cook on our own boat. We have a bitchin galley to cook in and there’s nothing better than making a great meal that my crew LOVES. The HelmsMistress doesn’t mind me cooking either…cause then she gets to relax and think about tomorrows school day. Read this story…I’m gonna drop some stovetop cooking knowledge-
A hearty meal the entire crew scarfed down…easy to make (less than 30 minutes) with ingredients I had around the boat. Read on-
Pork Chops with Mushroom Soup Sauce: So I did this entire meal in less than an hour and only used one pan for the whole thing, with no oven. The crew didn’t seem to mind as there were NO leftovers and it turned out to be a mighty tasty meal.
I’ve gotta admit something to you. I really, really like cooking on a Big Green Egg. On Tulum, we made the choice to have a size small Big Green Egg on board, only one of (2) sailboats we’ve ever seen with a BGE onboard. Today I’m going to work through a story about cooking two […]
I decided I would try to make my favorite (nearly) homecooked original spaghetti sauce in a pressure cooker for the first time. Pressure Cooker is one of my go-to cooking implements on the boat, used for canning and cooking and occasionally trying to wash the cat.
I try to let food cook on the Egg without checking it too much, so the burgers will cook until I flip them once.
