FireFly BBQ Foods


One of the products I was given to try from an exhibitor at the BBC Good Food Show came from FireFly BBQ in the form of a Memphis Pig Rub and a bottle of their Memphis Red BBQ Sauce.


Seeing as I hadn’t prepared anything for dinner the other night, but had a couple of chicken breasts in the fridge that needed using up, I decided that I’d improvise and give my chicken a quick rub instead!


Whilst I left my chicken to take on the flavours of the rub, I sliced an onion and a red pepper, then prepared my rice ready to cook.  As I put on the water to boil for my rice, I sautéed off my chicken, onion & peppers in the wok, then as the rice went in to boil, I added the bottle of Red BBQ sauce to the wok & cooked it down to become a delicious sticky sauce.



Sprinkled with a few chopped spring onions, this became a quick, tasty and delicious dinner.

I was given the Memphis Pig Rub and the Memphis Red BBQ sauce to try by Firefly BBQ.  I was under no obligation to provide a review, positive or otherwise.

Fajita Seasoning

A really easy thing to make and much more versatile than the packet mixes that you buy in the supermarkets.  Here is my take on a good old Fajita Seasoning.

15ml Cornflour
5ml Chilli powder
2.5ml Salt
5ml Paprika
5ml Caster sugar
1 Knorr chicken stock cube
5ml Garlic powder
1.25ml Ground cumin
2.5ml Mixed herbs
1.25ml Cinnamon

1. Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly.
2. Sprinkle over your meat and marinade your meat in the Fajita Seasoning for a few hours or overnight, covered in the fridge.
3. Cook the meat, either by frying or by oven roasting in a little oil.

You can adjust the Chilli powder up or down, depending on how hot and spicy you like your food.
