BBQ Rubs & Seasonings

BBQ Rubs & Seasonings are available to buy from the ‘Ome Made Online Store!

Summer is almost upon us, hopefully bringing some fine BBQ weather.

At ‘Ome Made we have a selection of BBQ Rubs & Seasonings to suit all tastes. Perfect for all the grill addicts out there!

BBQ Rubs & Seasonings are a vital part of the outdoor, summer cooking season. If it’s perfect pulled pork you’re after or you just want to season some steaks or chicken ‘Ome Made BBQ Rub-a-Dub-Rub is an American style dry rub perfect for rubbing in to meat before it is simply grilled or smoked low ‘n’ slow.

American Style BBQ Rubs

As well as our traditional BBQ rub we now have more American style seasonings.

For something different on a low and slow brisket why not try our Wake Up & Smell The Coffee Rub-a-Dub-Rub? A blend of spices, sugar and coffee. It may sound weird but it gives a lovely deep, savoury flavour with a touch of sweetness. It’s not just for brisket though it works on anything you want to grill too!

We have our Golden Green Rub-a-Dub-Rub which is a blend of yellow mustard, dill and other herbs and spices. This is great rubbed straight in to pork or it can be made in to a paste to smother pork shoulder or brisket so that your chosen coating will stick to the meat while being cooked, giving you two layers of flavour!

If you’re after simpler flavours we have Man! Fire! Rub-a-Dub-Rub. A combination of Salt, garlic, onion, spices and herbs. Great for bringing out the flavours of low and slow cooked meats but equally suitable for just chucking over something on the grill!

For something a little more spicy ‘Ome Made Fuego Furioso Rub-a-Dub-Rub (furious fire!) is great for sprinkling on to your food before it’s barbecued or adding to other rubs to give a little more Oomph! Its a combination of different dried chilli peppers, salt and pepper that will really liven up your BBQ!

If you want something that isn’t so spicy we do a range of Rub-a-Dub-Rubs which are more traditional and great used as BBQ Rubs, we have;

Pork – Perfect for joints, steaks or burgers.

Chicken – Great for seasoning thighs, whole or spatchcocked birds.

Beef – For seasoning burgers, steaks or if you want a simple flavoured piece of brisket.

Lamb – Use to season lamb burgers, steaks or a whole shoulder or leg done low ‘n’ slow

‘Ome Made do a range of rubs which take influence from around the world…

Portuguese Rub-a-Dub-Rub is based on the classic flavours of Portuguese Piri Piri. We love this rubbed on to a small whole or spatchcocked chicken before cooking indirect on the barbecue.

Portuguese Chicken

Moroccan Rub-a-Dub-Rub takes all the earthy, warming flavours of North Africa and goes brilliantly with lamb. Try rubbing in to a whole leg with a little garlic, lemon juice and olive oil before cooking indirect on the barbecue… a real treat! It also makes agreat BBQ rub for chicken.

Moroccan Slow Roast Lamb

Indian On The BBQ

We love Indian food here at ‘Ome Made!

We have some Indian inspired BBQ Rubs perfect for the summer months.

Try some Seekh kebabs made with our Indian Kebab Masala or one of our favourites, some Chicken Tikka or even a whole Tandoori Chicken using our Tandoori Masala & Kashmiri Masala

Burger It!

veal burger

We love a good burger in our house.

We don’t have them very often so when we do it’s a real treat.

Our children have never been to a McDonalds, Burger King or any other junk food purveyor.

I can imagine that when they do (although I’d like to think they never will…) it will be a real eye opener for them. I can just see them going back to the counter with the sad little burger in hand… “What’s this? You call this a burger?”

 

I don’t know why more people don’t make their own? You can buy a kilo of mince meat for a lot less than it costs for a kilo of burgers. All you need to do is add a bit of seasoning, mix and form into a rough Pattie and throw on a grill, BBQ or frying pan.

However you can let your imagination run wild and flavour your meat with a vast array of ingredients.

And then you have your toppings, now this is where the fun starts!

You have to have cheese of some sort. I love a slice of Monterey Jack on a beef burger, but a medium cheddar is just as nice. If you want to ‘Posh’ it up I would go with some crumbly Stilton. One of my favourite burgers is a Mediterranean influenced lamb burger topped with a piece of grilled Halloumi and some ‘Ome made Tzatziki.

 veal & chorizo burger

I like a nice mustardy mayonnaise on my beef burgers along with a little salad leaf, slice of tomato and I’m sorry but gherkins are good too. I also think a beef burger needs a good squirt of tomato ketchup.

 

Lately we have been making veal burgers. I know that some people are a little put off by veal but the place that we get it from uses the male animals from the place that they get their milk supplies from. If the animals are not sold for meat then they would be slaughtered at birth anyway. So personally I haven’t got a problem with eating veal that’s a by-product of the dairy industry, and from some where that has high standards for animal welfare.

Mince veal has quite a delicate flavour and it makes a really nice burger that compliments other ‘add ons’.

Heres a recipe you might want to try but feel free to add your own ‘add ons’ as everyone has different tastes. The burgers could be made with any sort of meat though.

 

Ingredients

1.2Kg veal mince (or beef or lamb), Waitrose often have a deal on veal mince, hence the amount which would cost £10

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon sugar

A really good grind of black pepper

A couple teaspoons of mustard. Dijon or wholegrain works best

 

And that’s it, although you could add other things if you fancy. Get your hands in the bowl and give it a really good ‘squish’ to thoroughly mix the ingredients into the meat.

I then line a tray with greaseproof paper, form the meat into burgers, place on the tray and chill which lets the burgers firm up a little. If you’re finding you have more meat on your hands than tray a tip is to shape the burgers using slightly wet hands. You may notice on the photos that we made some little meat balls from the same mixture, these were used in the Kids’ pack-up for their school lunch (I never got pack-up as good as theirs!), they would be equally as good in a tomato sauce with some pasta for a quick lunch or supper.

 And that’s it your burgers are ready to go and be cooked using your preferred method.

So we had these little beauties topped with Chorizo, Monterey Jack cheese, an ‘Ome made tomato and habenero chilli salsa and some rocket and baby spinach leaves all sandwiched in a mini Ciabatta bun with a squirt of American style mustard spread on for good measure.veal chorizo & Monerey Jack burger

The salsa is really easy too if you want to have a go. Just dice some tomatoes, onions and chillies (which can be left out if you don’t want the heat). Add enough sugar to lightly coat the mixture, a little splash of vinegar and a good squirt or squeeze of lime juice. It now needs a good pinch of salt (I personally like a nice salty salsa)and a good grind of pepper. Again a salsa can easily be customized to your own liking. tomato salsa

We had these with some nice chunky baked chips and a little more salad leaf on the side.

Be prepared for juice dribbling down chins and arms, but then that’s all part of the enjoyment!

And don’t forget to tell you’re kids how much nicer and healthier Home-made burgers are compared to the high street, mass produced crap of fast food vendors!
