Myself and BraaiBoy (ROI) have been talking for some time now but have never had the opportunity to have a BBQ / Braai together. He called me last week and said that he would be coming up to Dublin and would I be around. I said most certainly as we had been talking about it for a long time. I was looking forward to finally having a Braai together.
And in true South African style we decided to have a feast . Leon AKA BraaiBoy Rep of Ireland brought some boerewors and I said that I would sort the steak ,pap and sauce and other. He had a big journey back and to be a gentleman I also opted not to have any beer or wine but we drank coke and juice . First time in a long time I think the two of us had a non alcoholic BBQ/braai .
The “tomahawk” or rib eye on the bone is my own version of the tomahawk ! I know a tomahawk is more trimmed off but I prefer the more meaty option so this is my version of the tomahawk . To judge the scale of the bone and meat see the standard herb glass container in the photo .
I did the TOMAHAWK and lamb chops “dirty or caveman style” and the Boerewors and other rib eye was done on the Grate .
The plate that I gave myself and Leon Braaiboy (ROI) was 50cm (20in) wide . These were from a good mate Fergal Donnelly . Because we were having caveman / Dirty steaks I just thought it appropriate that we have caveman style big earthy plates. See the scale of the Tomahawk and plate compared to the knive and fork.
