Yesterday was dawn til dusk. Tutoring, cleaning, writing, tutoring again, more writing. So, for a quick and easy meal that would still be nice enough to count as a break, I barbequed everything.
-a big roast cut, such as whole chicken, pork shoulder joint or lamb leg
-400g mixed veg (we had parsnips, carrots, sprouts and frozen veg to bulk)
-1 sweet onion
-BBQ sauce (Click here for an almost-Paleo, delicious BBQ sauce recipe!) around 1/2 cup
-tomato sauce (ketchup for those with sweeter tastes, tomato puree or passata for those with richer tastes) around 3/4 cup
-mustard (strong mustard, also optional)
-a tray deep enough to take all the food
-knife and chopping board
-something for basting
1: Rub the paprika and salt into the meat.
2: Add half the tomato and BBQ.
3: Place in a tray with the sliced onion and cook on a low heat (120-130C) for two hours.
4: Chop the vegetables to uniform size.
5: Remove the tray from the oven and baste the meat in the juices. Rest until warm to touch.
6: Roll the vegetables in the juices with the onion.
7: Add the last of the sauces and baste the meat again before returning to the oven, still at a low heat, for another two hours.
8: Baste one last time and turn the temperature up to 160C to finish off.
So that’s what we had for dinner yesterday. Tasty, low carb (well, mine was, Jon likes his beans) and although it takes forever to cook, minimal investment in the prep. Win, win, win. 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow with FitFriday and on Saturday with some organization crafts so easy and practical that you can relax whilst making them and whilst using them!
Until then, TTFN and Happy Hunting!
