This week at WOWBBQ we bring you the Colombian Lomo al trapo (literal translation is tenderloin in cloth). Beef tenderloin (or fillet) is one of the most luxurious and prestigious cuts of meat, so what better for a bank holiday treat!
When it comes to pure barbecue joy; you really can't beat a steak! It's almost primal, tasty and quick too! But, although we're a great fan of barbecue staples here at WOWBBQ, it can become a bit repetitive to eat steak all the time so we took it upon ourselves to find an interesting and new (at least to us) method of cooking beef. Only this time with an even bigger cut, a fillet!
Continuing with our Around the World in 80 BBQs journey we've brought you this amazing recipe from Colombia - Lomo al Trapo. This method of cooking may seem unorthodox but it produces fantastic results.
To produce this dish we've used the following:
A few tips with the teatowel; this needs to be 100% cotton to prevent any contaminants getting into the meat and it goes without saying that using the one that Aunty Bridgette got you as a present from her holidays wouldn't go down very well!
This has to be potentially one of the easiest recipes and rewarding recipes that we've ever done here at WOWBBQ, with minimal effort required at any stage you can create a serious crowd pleaser that is destined to impress and WOW even the fussiest guest!
