Caveman style

Appears in

We call all techniques where the ingredients directly touch the charcoal โ€œcaveman style.โ€ The most common preparation is a thick steak, but it also works very well with vegetables.

For vegetables, we usually blacken the skin and peel or cut it off after cooking. Their core will often acquire a sweet taste. This technique is most known for bell peppers, but leeks, garlic, and onions are also suitable for caveman style. Vegetables placed on charcoal cook in a similar way to when you roast them, but quicker. They will taste smokier and pretty bitter.
