Cooked some Matambre out of Raichlens BB Bible.

The raws


One butterflied Flank Steak, seasoned up


Missed the stuffing pictures, but all those raws are inside this foil package.


On the egg at 250 for 3 hours and it looked like this:


and on the plate.


Thanks for looking. It was good but not great.

    Looks pretty tasty to me! Love brussel sprouts n taters as sides.
  • You gotta tell me what book and page that thing is on ... looks outrageous!

    I wonder how it would be if you rolled and tied and not used foil.

  • I followed the recipe word for word, but you're right I bet it would be a lot better raised direct.

  • It's on page 130 of Raichlens "The Barbecue Bible".

  • Like I told Steve, you guys are right, next time raised direct.

  • Thanks ..gotta try that one.

  • That sounds like a good plan

    Hey Doug, did you make the chimichurri sauce that SR suggests to go along with it?

    If not, you missed the best part!

    fc ;)
  • I didn't but I will...

  • Try the version in "How to Grill". Maybe better. Skip the foil part, tie with butcher string, and go like this. This way you don't have to turn it, it just roasts in-directly over the Plate Setter.

    This was my first one, it was a little sloppy - see the stuffing sticking out? But The Cook gets to eat that part!

    I used Louisiana Hot Links for the sausage. Check how the bacon gets embedded on the outside.

    When I made my 2nd one, I forgot to add vinegar inside - and it just wasn't right. Gotta havea little acid in there to make it savory. But they's all been good!

    I also made one of these with a pork loin.

    Here's the flank steak version:


    Then slice:


    Then serve. Sorry, the side slaw isn't on this picture:
