Jack Daniels Chops

Barbeque in Greece has a history. Cooking on coal was the most usual way to make things back in the old days. There are several areas in Greece where coal cooking is in the center of the attention.

In Athens and everywhere else there are places called tavernas where most of the menu is cooked on coal. It is very usual for a family or friends to go out on Sundays and end up eating in a taverna steaks, burgers, chicken lamb chops or whatever else you can think of always made on coal.

Many homes especially the ones with gardens or large patios have a barbeque made of brick and clay on which they cook from chops to a whole lamb especially during Easter. We have one too because my paternal grandfather owned a taverna back then and he taught everything he knew to my father who in turn tried to teach everything he knew to my brother. Although my father is in his 80s now and the barbeque has become idle, I have a small one that can cook a portion enough for my family and I use it almost every weekend provided it doesn’t rain.

Jack Daniels Chops

I love making meat in my barbeque because the taste is so profound and so different than the one under the broiler. Weekends is my opportunity to make something different, something that requires more time and effort. During weekdays I usually cook simple, quick food for everybody. But weekends, oh weekends I let myself carried away and make all sorts of difficult and new things.

Last weekend I bought some beef chops so tender and delicious and I thought I should make something delicious with them for everybody to enjoy. We all love Jack Daniels sauce over at TGIF and, so I decided to go ahead and clone it so as to spread it on top of the chops. I also made some fantastic mashed potatoes and let me tell you there was not a chop or spoon of potato left. It was a truly fantastic meal perfect for a family lunch on a weekend day.
