Nothing says “Summer” quite like a backyard BBQ. One can’t help but relish those balmy afternoons or evenings – cheerful chatter as you and your friends catch up, the tell-tale sizzle of delicious food on the barbecue, a moment of total relaxation with a cold drink in hand.  If you’re planning to open your new home to loved ones and celebrate with a quintessential Aussie cook out, then check out all our favourite recipes below.


The piece de resistance of any BBQ is always the meat. Whether you love a classic sausage and steak combo or gravitate towards something a little fancier, the recipes below are sure to take your BBQ game to the next level . . .

Lamb Chops: lamb cooked on the barbie is such a classic combination and these rosemary and garlic lamb chops are a real treat. Think succulent, juicy meat infused with the flavour bombs of garlic and fresh rosemary – yum. Check out the recipe here.

Charred Prawns: It wouldn’t be an Aussie BBQ without throwing a “shrimp” on the barbie. These charred prawns with lime are the perfect starter to your backyard feast, because let’s face it, barbecued things on sticks just taste better . . .

Steak: Barbecue and steak is just a match made in heaven and this steak and Salsa Verde recipe is no exception. Raid your herb garden or fridge for the ingredients for the sauce that’ll elevate your steak to the next level.

Vegan / Vegetarian Burgers:  This healthy vegan beet burger is perfect for plant-based or vegetarian barbecuers and are delicious enough to tempt even the biggest meat lovers. Check out the recipe here.


No backyard feast is complete without all the trimmings and some of our sure-fire favourites would have to be BBQ corn, classic potatoes, and a fresh, light salad.

Barbecued Corn: Barbecued corn on the cob with zesty onions, chipotle salsa and lashing of herb butter…what’s not to love?

Potato Salad: No matter what road you go down with your BBQ meat, one thing’s for sure, summer potato salads are always a winner. This creamy bacon number is guaranteed to put a smile on the face of all your guests.

Strawberry and Avocado Salad: This salad is basically summer in a bowl and it’s light, sweet flavours work perfectly to break through the richness of the BBQ meats. Although once you taste it, we think you’ll agree that it’s definitely more of a showstopper than a mere ‘side salad’.
