Wednesday Wrap-Up: 5/29/2013

Welcome to Wednesday Wrap-Up.  Our week went a little something like this:

Of course we had to bbq again!  This time dad enlisted a few helpers.  For the recipe you will find below, the pork does need pounding and it's easier to accomplish this and still stay sanitary by placing the meat to be pounded in a ziplock bag.

Here's a little recipe from our great feast this weekend: BBQ Pork and Chicken Wraps

Ingredients needed are:
2 lbs boneless pork steaks or chicken breasts depending on which meat you want to serve
1 bunch of scallions
1/2 lb shredded pepperjack cheese
1/2 lb shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb bacon
1 jar favorite bbq sauce
optional 1 pkt ranch dressing seasoning packet for the chicken

Initial prep:
If using chicken, use only boneless chicken breast.  Butterfly the chicken breast by slicing it horizontally.

and opening the chicken, cutting it in half.

For the chicken option, sprinkle the ranch seasoning lightly over the chicken.  Add scallions, and top with cheese.  You can use both kinds of cheese, or keep the flavors separate; it's up to you.

Next, roll the chicken lengthwise and with one strip of bacon for each piece of chicken, wrap the meat.  No need for toothpicks or any fastening as the bacon will adhere and hold it together.

Here's how the pork looks- it's been pounded out with a meat tenderizer to approximately 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick as our earlier pictures depicted.  Follow the same instructions as the chicken, optionally leaving out the ranch seasoning.


(sprinkle with more ranch seasoning after wrapping)

Quick rundown on bbq process:
Place foil down on one half of grill. (this will allow you to use indirect heat and not burn the bacon in the process).
Heat grill to approx. 500 degrees F.
Place your meat wraps on the foil.
Let the meat cook for approx. 20-25 min. and turn meat over, continuing for approx 20 more min.
At this point the bacon is cooked but not crisp.  If you want crispier bacon move the wraps to the direct heat (not covered in foil).  Note: bacon will have a tendency to catch fire so monitor carefully and let bacon cook to desired crunchiness- then place back on indirect heat.
Next, using your favorite bbq sauce (we used KC Masterpiece) spread onto the meat.
Close the grill lid and cook for approx. 5 min.
Flip the meat and repeat from the when you applied sauce.
You're done!
