German and Argentinean Food for Your World Cup BBQ

If you are planning a BBQ for the World Cup Final, you should think about planning the appropriate food for your favoured team.

Or both, if you are a neutral. Here are two traditional ways of preparing a BBQ in both countries.

This is a traditional German grilled pork roast recipe. Use either chops or steaks, marinated and then grilled.
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Serves 8



8 x large pork leg chops or steaks
1 cup oil
10 onions, cut into strips
4 cloves garlic, crushed
7 crushed juniper berries
1 tablespoon English mustard (German mustard if you can get it)
Thyme, Oregano,
1 x tsp Curry powder and Paprika*
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper and Black Pepper*
* (your decision as to how hot you like your food)


Traditionally, this pork roast is cooked on a swinging grill over beech wood or oak coals. However, good quality lump wood charcoal is OK.
Place your onions into a bowl and pound them slightly to release their wonderful flavor. Add the remaining ingredients (oil, garlic, juniper berries, mustard and spices) and mix well. Place a pork chop or steak into a dish and then cover with some of the onion mixture, being sure to mash the onions into the meat; add another pork chop or steak and more onion mixture. Continue until all 8 chops or steaks have been covered with the marinade. Now cover with film and rest the pork in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours.
When ready to grill, remove the pork from the refrigerator and let them come to room temperature. Grill the pork slowly over the hot coals for 10-15 minutes on each side (depending on how you like the steaks).
Serve with a potato salad, tomato and onion salad and our spinach and orange salad.



Argentina produces some of the best beef in the world. Take time to look around so that you can obtainsome genuine Argentineanbeef.
Asado is a term used both a range of barbecue techniques and the social event of having or attending a barbecue in Argentina. An asado usually consists of beef alongside various other meats, which are cooked on an open fire grill. However, this type of event is where our Rotigrill XL2 rotisserie BBQ comes into its own.

The idea of an Argentinean BBQ is to savour the natural flavours of the meat. Do nothing to the meat except rub salt into the surface of the joints, then slow roast until tender.

Serve your meat with a Salad Olivier (Russian salad).
