BBQ onion steaks
Try a new veggie main on your summer BBQ. These thick onion steaks are skewered and coated in a honey mustard glaze that turns wonderfully sticky and sweet when grilled. Enjoy with coleslaw and potato salad, or serve up alongside burgers and hot dogs.
- Soak 4 wooden skewers in cold water for 30 mins. Meanwhile, make the glaze by mixing together the ketchup, vinegar, honey and mustard in a bowl. Stir through the chopped rosemary and set aside.
- Peel the onions, but keep them whole. Top and tail, then cut each onion into 1.5cm thick slices. Line up 3-4 of the slices flat on your chopping board then carefully insert a skewer through the centre of the slices (as you would a lollipop or kebab). Repeat with the remaining skewers and onion slices.
- Brush the bars of a preheated barbecue or griddle pan with oil. Coat the onion slices with a little of the glaze and place on the grill. Cook for 20-25 mins until charred and tender, turning the skewers and brushing with more glaze regularly. Garnish with the fresh rosemary sprigs and drizzle over any remaining glaze to serve.
Tip: Look out for medium-sized, sweet white onions for this recipe if you can, or try with brown or even red onions.
