The Great Aussie Barbecue
For years the aussie barbecue has been a way of life for every Australian. For entertaining beside the pool or relaxing by the river, the humble barbecue is always there in all its glory. There are many types of barbecue used in Australia including the gas, webber (hot coal) or wood fired barbecue. All of which are designed to cook a variety of meats, chicken and seafood to give an irresistible flavour. Aussie barbecue favourites include a juicy rump steak, succulent T-bone steak, lamb chops, sausages and marinated tiger prawns.
Men traditionally do the cooking of the barbecue with a cold beer in hand. The ladies usually make the salads to go with these sizzling events. Some salad favourites include aussie coleslaw, potatoe salad, green salad or pasta salad. Thinly sliced potatoes, mushrooms and onion cooked in butter are also hot favourites on the aussie barbecue.
So when visiting Australia and experiencing this great outdoor lifestyle, remember: there is nothing better than the sweet smell of a sizzling steak, cooked to perfection with lashings of coleslaw, potatoe salad and icy cold beer. What could be better on a hot summers day.
