Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Sauerbraten Chicken Wings

Germany has been on my mind a lot with Mrs. G being over there for work (yes, she's still there. Won't be home until late Wednesday afternoon). I got to talking with Kristi @NecessaryIndulg last week about chicken wings. Started me wondering if there was a German version. Did a little bit of looking around and came across one recipe (copied on 3 or 4 websites) for sauerbraten chicken wings. Nto something I had ever heard of and probably not authentic, but I love wings, so why not try a new recipe? No pictures of the marinade that I made the night before, but here are the wings going on the Egg at 400.

When the wings are almost done, its time to make the sauce. Basically just a roux, then add in some of the marinade that you reserve before pouring on the chicken, some chicken stock and wait for it....crushed ginger snaps. Weird huh? Toss the wings in the sauce and serve. (i sprinkled on some green onions just for color)

Interesting flavor for sure, not what you would expect when ordering wings. They were sweet but also sour and tangy. No heat at all, but why would they be? There was nothing to give them heat. Didn't really come out crispy, probably because of marinating overnight. Definitely messy. Not my favorite wing recipe in the world, but I'd do them again. Especially when Oktoberfest rolls around next fall.

Recipe is HERE if you are interested.
