BBQ Bliss: Mastering the Umami-Marinated Entrecôte

Posted by Stephanie Lüpold on


  • 1 piece of meat ready to grill
  • Beef Garum


  1. Start by preparing your meat, ensuring it's cleaned and trimmed to your desired specifications. Whether you prefer thick cuts or lean slices, this technique adapts to your culinary vision.

  2. Now, it's time to introduce the star of the show: Beef Garum. For every 100 grams of meat, add 5 to 10 grams of Beef Garum. It's crucial not to exceed the 10-gram limit, as the goal is to enhance the meat's flavor without overpowering it.

  3. Place the marinated meat in a vacuum bag, ensuring it's sealed tightly to capture all the remarkable flavors of the Beef Garum. Let it marinate in the refrigerator overnight, allowing the magic to work its way into every fiber of the meat.

  4. When it's time to cook, you have the flexibility to choose your preferred method, whether it's sous vide or any other grilling technique you fancy. This marination technique ensures your meat will cook perfectly, retaining its natural moisture and achieving an amazing result.

The result? A profound and intense taste of meat that truly celebrates the essence of your chosen cut. This technique not only guarantees a perfectly cooked piece of meat but also unleashes the meat's natural flavours, accentuated by the complexity of Beef Garum.

As a bonus, don't let those flavourful juices go to waste. The liquid left in the vacuum bag, infused with the magic of Garum, can be transformed into a delightful sauce. For instance, heat the liquid in a pan, add some cubes of butter, and reduce it to create an emulsified sauce with an unexpected umami taste.

With Garum by your side, anyone can master the art of cooking, creating dishes that are not only delicious but also full of character. So, remember to always keep your supply of Garum well-stocked, and prepare to be amazed by the magic it brings to your BBQ experiences.
