Everyone loves a Sunday roast. Or – let’s face it – an any day roast. Not only is it easy to make and economical, it’s perfect for serving larger numbers while being equally adaptable for couples or eating alone. The leftovers are extremely versatile –the meat can be reworked into all kinds of dishes, including curries, pastry-topped pies, stir fries or simply as sandwich fillings. Mincing roasted meat also works well for dishes like shepherd’s pie, chilli and Bolognese.
Fire up the barbecue and get ready for a sizzling pork dinner. For our take on roast pork for the summer months, we suggest cooking up some pork chops along with some sausages. If you want a nod to the traditional apple sauce, why not try some pork and apple sausages? These are available in most supermarkets, or you could try these bangers (in both senses of the word!), which are handmade and come from outdoor-reared pigs on small family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire.
We’re using a whole chicken for our BBQ version of a roast chicken dinner – but to cook it, we’re spatchcocking it (splitting it in half, butterfly style) and giving it a tasty marinade. This BBC recipe is delicious and easy to follow, but feel free to experiment with your own marinade.
We’d love to see pictures of your barbecue-themed interpretations of traditional roast dinners. Let us know which Gourmade sides and desserts you used, too. You can find us on Insta, Twitter or Facebook, or just send us a message. Which reinvented roast wins when it’s given a grilling?
After a spicy meal, a cool and refreshing dessert is just the ticket. Why not try our Raspberry Cheesecake or perhaps a refreshing Sicilian Lemon Roulade Gourmade has plenty of delicious desserts to choose from, so you can finish your meal in style.
