Gratar / Grill – barbecue

In ultimii 10 ani, in Romania, daca nu faci un gratar, nu te numesti roman. Fie ca frigi legume sau carne sau amandoua, fie ca frigi doar pt tine si partener fie ca pregatesti o petrecere in toata regula, este musai sa fie gratar. Teorii pro si contra apar din ce in ce mai des in ceea ce priveste mancarea gatita la gratar insa parerea mea este ca e o mancare sanatoasa daca se folosesc materiale lemnoase ca si combustibil si daca nu se abuzeaza in privinta cantitatii. Un gratar gatit cu lemne sau coceni de porumb servit o data pe saptamana nu are ce sa faca rau. Grija trebuie sa avem si la ce punem pe gratar, un preparat din carne trebuie insotit de o leguma, iar carnea niciodata grasa.

Despre gratare o sa mai vorbim dar haideti sa va arat o varianta facuta recent de mine si sotul meu.

Avem nevoie de:

  • 1 kg ciuperci
  • 4 pulpe dezosate de pui
  • Crema de branza
  • Condimente

Se curata ciupercile de pielita cu un cutit cu lama scurta. Atentie, ciupercile nu se spala pt ca vor absorbi si mai multa apa.

Dupa ce le-am curatat ne ocupam de carne. Se spala si se lasa cel putin 1 ora intr-un amestec de condimente. Se pot folosi: putina sare, piper, condimente speciale de gratar.

La partea cu gratarul intervine sotul meu, un mic expert in familie. Se da foc la lemne si cand focul este intarit se pune peste el partea metalica pe care se va aseza mai tarziu carnea si legumele. Se lasa pe foc acea parte detasabila cu scop de igienizare, in fond focul igienizeaza cel mai bine. Cand focul a transformat in jar lemnele se aseaza pe gratar carnea mai greu de copt, de exemplu daca avem si pui si porc vom pune initial carnea de porc apoi cea de pui. Se intorc regulat partile de carne de pe o parte pe alta ca sa se patrunda bine carnea. Cand caldura emanata de jar isi pierde din intensitate se aseaza si legumele pt ca acestea se coc cel mai repede.

Si uite asa usor, usor pregatim o masa usoara si sanatoasa. La decorat eu am folosit piper colorat si crema de branza care a mers de minune cu ciupercile si carnea de pui.

Pofta mare!

 English version:

In the last 10 years in Romania, if you don’t have a barbecue, you can’t call yourself Romanian. Whether you fry vegetables or meat or both, or if it’s just for you and your partner or if you prepare yourself for a great party, it’s compulsory to serve grill. Theories for and against the grill or the barbecue appear increasingly often lately but I think that the grill/ barbecue can be a healthy food if you use wood materials as fuel and if you don’t abuse with the quantity. A barbecue cooked with wood or corn cobs served once a week can do no harm. You must have care with what you put on the grill, if it’s meat then you must add vegetables as well and the meat never to be too fat.
About grills I’ll tell you more in the next posts but now let’s see what I have for you.
We need:

  • 1 kg mushrooms
  • 4 boneless chicken thighs
  • Cream Cheese
  • Spices

Clean mushrooms with a short blade knife of their soft skin. Be careful not to wash the mushrooms for they will absorb more water. After this you can wash the meat as well. Then leave it at least 1 hour in a mixture of spices. You can use: salt, pepper, barbecue special spices mix.
Our barbecue family expert is my husband. He sets the fire to the wood, and when the fire gets furious he puts over the hardened steel table where we will later place the meat and vegetables. The purpose is to sanitize it because in fact the fire sanitizes best. When the fire loses the flame and starts to turn the wood into ashes you can add the meat, first the type of meat that need more time to cook, for example if we have chicken and pork we will initially add the pork then the chicken. You then regularly turn the meat from side to side for the heat to penetrate the meat. When the heat from fire loses the intensity add the vegetables for they ripen fastest.
And so we prepare a healthy meal. I decorated the plate using colored pepper and cream cheese that went great with the mushrooms and chicken.

Enjoy!

  1. Ciupercile nu se curata de pielea aia, incearca data viitoare, se spala individual cu palaria in jos, sunt mult mai bune si nici nu se zbarcesc, in plus, scapi de atata munca degeaba🙂

    • Buna Bogdana si multumesc pt vizita,
      Eu prefer sa le curat desi este o munca enervanta pe alocuri. Stiu ca ciupercile din comert nu sunt asa murdare si merg si spalate. O sa incerc asta data viitoare, multumesc pt sfat.
      Cu drag, Oana
