BBQ Lamb Skewers with Ginger Lime Dressing (Keto)

Grilled lamb is a thing of great beauty, but its the show-topping dressing in this recipe will make your BBQ lamb skewers shine this summer! Serve the dipping sauce at room temperature, so make it the same time as you marinate the lamb, then kick your feet up for a bit while your other half prepares the BBQ. Enjoy!

BBQ Onion Skewers with Chilli Butter (Keto)

Our South African roots will be evident in the inspiration behind this dish. Firstly, you should know that Funnyman and I LOVE to braai (BBQ). We don’t use charcoal (shudder) and we don’t use gas (even bigger shudder) – we actually import our wood from South Africa via a fabulous company here in the UK that provides us with kameeldoring wood which is excellent. You see, South Africans don’t braai just to eat. We spend hours watching the logs burn down to coals while we chat with loved ones. And then, after everyone has eaten, we throw more wood on the fire and just watch the flames as we contemplate life! As you can imagine, coal and gas BBQs just won’t cut it for us.

BBQ Ribs in Tamari & Skinny® Maple Syrup (Low carb)

My butcher hooked me up with a whopping kilogram of pork ribs, so I got to work creating a delicious glaze to brush over the ribs while we braaied one day on lock down. I used tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) and delicious The Skinny Food Co Sugar-free Maple Syrup along with other few bits. This will sufficiently feed 4 hungry people at your next BBQ – but I especially want you to try my version of pre-cooking the ribs ahead of going onto the grill. I wrap them in a completely air-tight parcel of foil, so they literally steam in their own juices for 3 hours. They fall off the bone. Heaven.

Lamb with Fresh Tomato & Garlic Relish (Keto)

This simple relish of fresh tomatoes and raw garlic came about one night by accident. I can’t recall what I was making, but I added a good quality olive oil and a pinch of salt – and it became my new favourite condiment! I said to Funnyman ‘this would be perfect over lamb!’ So… here we are. I made it again to serve with lamb cutlets and it is sensational! Who would have thought that two simple ingredients could deliver so much in flavour. A few key things I must highlight: Use organic, ripe tomatoes and the fattest garlic clove you can find. Plus, I hope you have a good-quality olive oil. Regarding the garlic: you will be eating it raw, so I must stress that the cloves should not be finely chopped, but rather crushed effectively using a garlic press. This is best for texture and flavour, so please invest in one if you haven’t already. The batch of relish makes enough for 6 people at your BBQ to enjoy and the macros are calculated on two cutlets per person. If you choose to cook up less lamb, simply add the leftover relish to a salad or stir through warm vegetables. Play around: that’s what cooking is all about! Enjoy!

Lightly-spiced Keto Pork Ribs

This is a simple and tasty way to prepare pork ribs if you are steering clear of store-bought marinades which often contain sugar. A spice mix is rubbed onto the meat before it’s very tightly wrapped and slow-cooked to perfection. I finish it off with a very good quality drizzle olive oil and sea salt flakes before tucking in! (Note: You could use a rack of ribs, but at the time of making this dish, I could only find pork ribs that had already been cut, as pictured.)

Lamb Chops with Rosemary Butter (Keto)

I am quite vocal about how lamb is my favourite meat, I love it! Here, my butcher hooked me up with fantastic cutlets and we simply cooked them on the braai (BBQ). Lamb and rosemary go so well together, so I made a quick flavoured butter beforehand to melt on top and #PimpMyChops. And, since its the Bank Holiday weekend coming up here in the UK, why not enjoy these with my Tear-and-Share Keto Garlic Bread and a lovely salad on the side.
