View Full Version : Barbecued Rib/Meat Flavors - What to do with them?
04-03-2007, 03:18 PM
I know that sounds gross, and I was never a big "rib eater" even when I ate animals (the horror of my ignorance! Egads!)......
But thanks to the Fajita recipe, I'm thinking of marinading portabella with a lot of bbq seasoning. That's total bbq meat.
What would I do with it? Should I just stick with the Philly Cheezesteak or BBQ it up? I mean, what do people do with BBQ meat?
I could make a BBQ pizza. OR a BBQ wrap, topped with what? Sour Cream? Cheddar cheeze?
Just brainstorming! :-)
I'm ignorant... what is bbq seasoning? Is it something that you made or something you bought?

Ertarox, you may wish to examine this recipe for ideas:
I made them once and they were really good...surprisingly tasted very "barbeque-like".
1 C fresh tomatoes, chopped
1/4 C chopped onion
1/2 C dried tomatoes, soaked 15-30 min.
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1-2 tsp minced jalapeno
juice of 1 lemon or lime
2-4 Tblspoon agave nectar or honey
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/8 beet and/or 1/2 red bell pepper
1 tsp nama shoyu (soy sauce)
1.5 C raw walnuts
1.5 C raw cashews
Blend all but the nuts in a high-speed blender and pour into a mixing bowl. Chop the nuts in a food processor by pulsing the motor; leave them pretty chunky. Stir in the chopped nuts and adjust the seasonings, remembering that flavors intensify when the mix is dehydrated. Spread on teflex on dehydrator tray. Dehydrate until firm, slicing into squares and turning over onto screen, then dry until crunchy. Eat as a snack or as the main dish for a meal.
Notes: This recipe makes a very mild BBQ square a child can eat. Add more spices if you like it hot! The beet or bell pepper can be omitted, but I recommend either and usually use both for the rich red color they give the squares. I use home-dehydrated tomatoes, but you can use the storebought ones too. The recipe may look complicated because it has a lot of ingredients, but they go together fast and, man, is it good! You should be able to do the whole thing in the food processor, adding the nuts last. If you try that, let me know how it works. I served BBQ squares as the main dish (with a salad, raw corn on the cob, and dessert) to non-raw friends and they loved them so much I had to give them more to take home.

I'm thinking more of a bbq meat type substance, though. I'll figure it out! :-)

How about some coleslaw and dehydrated potato chips for sides!

Yay! That is a great idea!

How about using those spices with Walnut meat and sundried tomatoes? gives a great meaty texture.

I would like to use those spices etc., from the bbq squares., to marinate portobellas and a few onions...and then eat it with maybe onion bread..or some other soft bread..and coleslaw..maybe corn, cut off the cob and dehydrated/softened with a littleoil, salt and black pepper...YUMMM....
something for next weekend..LOL..:D
