Pulled Beef Sliders

This one is fast becoming a family favourite for us and a great way to feed a few people. This recipe will easily feed 6 adults and is an easy way to entertain. The recipe uses a whole piece of chuck steak cooked in the slow cooker, your local supermarket will have chuck steak up to 5kg and you just need to ask for them to cut you a whole piece off to the weight you want.

BBQ Christmas Ham

Yep the fat man in a red suit is just around the corner so it’s time for another Christmas recipe, although truth be told I use this recipe all year round. This is the perfect way to feed a crowd and hams are available all year.

Usually here in Australia they come split into two being the leg and the round or you can get the whole leg. If I’m doing a half I will get the round end as it has way more meat on it and you’re not paying for bone. If you’re going for presentation you might want to go for the leg end or the whole leg depending on how many you’re going to feed. Often you can find a small whole leg around the 6 to 7kg mark and these look great, just make sure you can fit it into your BBQ or oven. The other thing to check when you’re buying the ham is to make sure its cooked, most hams you buy in Australia are already cooked and all you doing is heating and adding a glaze, however you can get raw hams that need to be cooked the whole way through so just be sure to check.
