There is no doubt it’s BBQ season and we have been looking to see what’s new in the supermarket to tempt those taste buds. Here’s our pick of what’s hot in the meat and meat-free cooler aisles.
Fire Pit Range – available at Tesco – prices vary
Tesco has taken its barbecue food to the next level by introducing Fire Pit, a range of ready-marinated BBQ favourites, so you can spend less time on prepping and more time enjoying great tasting food with loved ones. The new range is inspired by US Pitmasters who see barbecuing as a craft and are passionate about creating the most distinct flavours, using a variety of marinades and rubs. Here’s a few of our faves!
Fire Pit Mexican Style Pork Shoulder Steaks – £3
Pork cooks so well over coals and these boneless thick cut pork shoulder steaks come with a Mexican inspired seasoning of smoked paprika, green pepper, coriander and cumin. Delicious with sour cream and a touch of Guac!
Fire Pit Thai Chicken Steaks – £3
For a different style of spice, why not try these skewered chicken breasts marinated in a Thai style coconut seasoning with lemongrass, coriander and ginger.
Fire Pit BBQ Cauliflower Wing Bites – £2.25
Who says BBQs are not for vegetarians? Well they are with these ingenious cauliflower florets that come marinated in smoky barbecue sauce covered with breadcrumbs, parsley and smoked paprika.
