Since this weekend is the Fourth of July in America, I thought I'd include an American classic: Barbeque. Have you had it or heard of it? In the South, we say we're "grilling" if we're putting anything on the grill, but I know in other parts of the US/world, people call it "barbequeing." So barbecue/que is not a verb but a noun--a food!
There are many methods and variations on this classic. In certain areas of the South, we use a tomato-based sauce (it tastes sweet), whereas other Southern states use a vinegar-based sauce. Since I'm from Georgia, I'm gonna share my super easy (remember, I can't cook!) way to make sweet BBQ for the Independence Holiday.
Normally bbq is made with pork, but I had some steaks that were too tough to eat. Since I bought the economy pack and didn't want to throw them out, I did some quick-thinking of what I could make.
I have a slow cooker (Crock Pot), so I put my frozen steaks in there. I mixed some BBQ sauce (you can buy it in a bottle) and 1 cup of Coca-Cola (another Atlanta staple that I know you've all heard of, my world-readers. You MUST visit the World of Coke if you're ever in Atlanta). I put this mixture on the steaks--it should cover them--and set the timer for 8 hours.
After that, I shredded the meat, put it on a wheat hamburger bun, and was ready to eat! I included some homemade coleslaw and baked beans. A perfect All-American meal. Enjoy!
What do you eat on the 4th of July? Maybe some hot dog-flavored chips? Haha
For my non-American readers, have you ever eaten BBQ?
Do you have a dish similar where you live?
