2 cups basmati rice

3/4 teaspoon crumbled saffron threads

2 tablespoons boiling-hot water

1 tablespoons olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

3 cups chicken stock

cup dried currants

½ lime and ½ lemon for garnish

1 teaspoon salt

  • Prepare Ozpig Big Pig or Series 2 for cooking. Season scotch fillets with Ozpig Pork and Beef Rubs. Allow to rest for 1 hour till at room temperature.
  • Prepare vegetables – peel and crush garlic, peel and dice onion, chop herbs, slice capsicum. Zest and juice 1 lime and half a lemon (set aside)
  • Place ¾ tsp of saffron into a small measuring jug, add 2 tablespoons of boiling-hot water and allow to stand for 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a cast iron pot at medium heat. Add butter, garlic, onion and stir for a few minutes to soften.
  • Add rice, stirring through, add saffron liquid, raisins and stock, salt and pepper and stir through, cover with lid or foil.
  • APlace the cast iron pot in the belly of Ozpig, carefully moving the pot around in the coals every 5 minutes. Cook for 10 -12 min, remove pot and place on the OzPig flat plate. Open lid and drizzle in lemon/ lime juice and rind, return lid and finish cooking 5 - 8 minutes till rice has just cooked through.
  • To cook the steak, have at room temperature, drizzle with oil. Ensure grill plate is sizzling hot. Use tongs to place steak down on one side cooking for 5 – 7 minutes, then turn once and cook for another 5 – 7 minutes. Remove onto butchers paper and wrap, allow to rest for 10 minutes, slice and drizzle with chopped herbs, lemon and lime segments and drizzle with lime juice.
  • Enjoy the steak drizzled with lime and with saffron rice & sour cream.
Additional notes:

Can coat steaks with rub and chill overnight.

Allow 1 hour for coals to form if cooking the rice in a cast iron pan in the belly of OzPig Big Pig. If making stock using stock powder follow the packet instructions.

Additional vegetables or slivered almonds can be added to the rice as desired.

A trivet can be put under the cast iron pot when in the belly of the Ozpig or when cooking on the flat plate.

Great bit of kit

We have the ozpig series 2 under a patio. Only just bought the house and the pig so we haven't got it in a specific final spot just yet. But having these extra offset and pieces helps keep smell and smoke (not that there is much using nice ironbark) definitely recommend this kit for use under a patio. Plus fast and easy postage made buying them easy as. 5 Stars

Big pig - loving it

We love our big pig . It’s so beautiful to sit around having the large opening and we are loving the smoker having started making beef jerky . We had a baby pig but this one is hands down the best

Series 2 - a genuine belter!

Series 2 - a genuine belter! Loving my series 2! During my "burning in" tests it really does belt out some heat, one of the primary reasons for the purchase. Guaging heat, I've cooked a couple of hamburgers and some stove top coffee all with great success. My only suggestion is when you've finally decided to treat yourself to a piggy, super treat yourself and get as many of the accessories as you want at the same time. You'll want to use em and I guarantee you'll go back and buy them anyway. No sell, thats a fact, so go the full hog! (thats a pun) Great service, fast post and I'm genuinely looking forward to the colder weather kicking in.

Exactly what I was looking for

- I was looking for something wood-fired and portable that I could take anywhere to boil water and cook a meal on and that could also be my home BBQ. The Pig is simpler and safer than a camp fire and a great back-up at home if everything goes down. I’ve only done BBQs so far and I’m enjoying the added wood-smoke taste. Looking forward to cooking more sophisticated meals down the track.
