In our kitchen the birch syrup never makes it to the fridge. I just can’t seem to do without it, so it remains by the stove with the olive oil and other spices. I especially like our Canadian Birch Company Dark Birch Syrup all alone on a good steak. The syrup’s subtle flavour enhances the steak’s natural flavour and makes it juicy and tender.
Last week, eyeing up the beautiful steak that was to be supper, I decided to depart from my cooking tradition and NOT put birch syrup on it. I missed the added tenderness. The steak was not as juicy, the flavour not as succulent and the wine did not fit the meal as well as usual. I even missed the beautiful colour birch syrup brings to the finished steak. I suppose I am simply spoiled. I am back to brushing on the birch syrup for my next steak BBQ!
It is easy to add a new dimension to your BBQ steak, pork or chicken. just brush both sides of the meat with your favorite Canadian Birch Company Syrup 10 minutes before cooking, As an option, you can add what ever herbs and spices you want to the mix. Brush on a bit more during the BBQing and enjoy!
