Welcome to fire & thyme!
This is a space for us to share our obsession with other passionate foodies. With one half of the team a BBQ obsessed cook and the other half a busy working mum, you'll find all your cooking bases covered here - from spectacular low and slow cooks, through to quick and tasty weeknight meals. We hope both keen cooks and absolute beginners can find some inspiration.
Hands down one of our favourite uses of leftover low and slow meat - brisket and smoked cheese pies.
Wagyu brisket cooked low and slow is shredded, then bathed in a decadent gravy made up of sautéed onion, garlic and beef broth - with a touch of bbq sauce and worcestershire for added richness - then encased in flaky golden pastry with a hefty dose of smoked cheese for extra ooze factor.
A ‘simple’ meat and vegetable dish doesn’t need to be a boring affair… Take perfectly tender and smokey beef rib, nestle it on a rich, creamy garlic aioli mash, and add your favourite seasonal greens.
Simple in looks, spectacular in flavour!
Plump lamb racks are treated to a slathering of mustard-mayonnaise marinade, before being coated generously in a herbaceous, nutty crust, then barbequed to meltingly tender perfection!
With a super simple zucchini and pea and salad providing a delicious fresh base for a sweet and tangy dressing, and preserved lemon bringing an unexpected burst of flavour, this lamb dish is a summer BBQ sensation.
