Can you use a grill pan to stove barbecue?
This week we are trying a grill pan to make Barbecue style skewers on the stove.
If you have not bought a grill pan yet then you really should. This is a great pan to make barbecue and grill pan recipes with meat and fish on your stove. I used one here to make delicious marinated beef filet skewers and the result was impressive.
- 800 grams beef filet
- 1 large bell pepper (capsicum) any colour
- Around 15 button mushrooms
- About 20 cherry tomatoes
- 1 white onion (optional)
- 6 tablespoons of fresh mixed fine herbs (chervil, parsley, dill, tarragon)
- 100 ml olive or grapeseed oil
- Salt and pepper to season
- Chop herbs mixed with the oil in a food processor and place in a bowl
- Dice meat into pieces suitable for the size of the skewers used and place into the herb mixture, add salt and pepper and marinate for 30 minutes.
- Cut bell peppers (capsicum) and onions (if used) into squares, the size of which suit the skewer used
- Cut off the mushroom stems.
- Panfry the mushroom, onion and capsicum (bell pepper) pieces in olive oil (preferably in a saute pan) on a moderate heat for about 10 minutes in order to soften them, but not to cook them.
- Assemble all items (including the cherry tomatoes) in whatever order and in whatever quantities you prefer.
- Heat the grill pan to a high heat. Given that the marinade contained a good quantity of oil, it may not be necessary to oil the pan.
- Place the skewers in the pan and press down on them to ensure the meat is fully in contact with the base of the pan.
- Cook for a total of 7-8 minutes and during that time turn each skewer so that each of the 4 sides of the meat is cooked.
The grill pan I bough is a 24 cm Staub grill pan and to be totally honest it is one of the best purchase I made as of late. I am just using that new grill for everything for, meat and vegetables. its easy to clean and maintain and just works
