Indoor Barbecue


Grilling outside is so fun and thrilling for a person who resides within the metro. It’s because very rare that you can take out your grilling equipments at your backyard ‘coz there is none especially when you are living in a condo at the 19th floor of the building. That’s too impossible!! Either you’ll be penalized by the admin of your condo  because of the complain of your angry neighborhood or you can’t really grill ‘coz you don’t have a place to do it.

Though, with the state of the art design inside the kitchen of your unit (If you’re so rich) or through a simple stove with indoor grill pan, you can still do barbecue inside but the experience that the outdoor grilling gives is totally a different story.

Since I belong to those category that has no place for grilling outside yet having a stove and a grill pan, I maximized what I have in hand.

Inspired by the menu of a resto named “Rub” at Thomas Morato Quezon City, I created my own version of an indoor barbecue that is so simple yet so tasty. Here is the recipe:

¤for the steak

1/4 kg of beef steak
Salt and pepper for seasoning
A cup of Hunt’s Original Barbecue Sauce

¤ for the side dish
A handfull of spinach
1/2 cup of sliced button mushroom
2 cloves of garlic finely chopped
2 tbsp of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash and season the beef with salt and pepper.
2. Pre-heat the grill pan on your stove then place the beef and let it cook for 2 mins. and turn it over, another 2 mins. for the other side.
3. Brush both sides of the beef with the Barbecue sauce and let it cook as you desire.
4. Meanwhile, open the other burner for the side dish. Put oil on the pan and when it’s hot saute the garlic until lightly brown but don’t let it burn. Place the mushroom and saute with the garlic, add the spinach and let everything cook. Season it with salt and pepper to taste.
5. Plate the dishes together as you desire.


Enjoy the meal because me and my husband really enjoyed our lunch with this recipe I made. I will surely do this more often but still need to study and practice how this grilled beef will become juicy and tender inside and caramelized outside just like in a restaurant. ’til next time folks.
