The PFEs were privileged to be given a sample pack of Café 26 salad dressings and sauce & marinade to trial recently as part of their re-branding promotion. I remember Café 26 back in my university days, a cafe I frequented in Subiaco on Rokeby Road right next to Dome! My friends and I used to love their salad dressing with the green label and the creamy mustard taste. I was pleased to see that they have now expanded to include a variety of salad dressings and even sauce & marinade for BBQ Ribs! I was eager to try them out!
My pick out of the above were the BBQ Rib sauce and marinade and the Oriental salad dressing for lunch. There are recipes on the website one can follow to match the salad dressings / sauce & marinade they have on offer. Nice and convenient!
My marinated BBQ Pork Ribs – soaked in the marinade!
After one hour of baking in the oven…
Tadaa! Awesome result! The ribs tasted delicious and I enjoyed it very much! After the initial trial, I made a whole lot at a fundraiser lunch yesterday, 1.5kg to be exact and they were a favorite! The 250ml bottle can be used for approx 1.5kg of ribs, I cheated slightly as I had used some previously for the trial. They still tasted great though!
I further trialed the Smokey BBQ Rib with beef ribs, baked 2kg of beef ribs with the 250ml bottle sauce and slow cooked them for 10 hours with some carrots. Another favorite! Loving how it was so easy with the sauce and how great they tasted. I had a few people asking me about the dishes! 🙂
With the Oriental salad dressing, I made the Chicken and Rice Noodle Salad (recipe from their website) with a roasted chicken I bought from Coles. Extremely easy and convenient too, and most importantly it tasted great! The Oriental salad dressing gave the dish a sweet and sourish flavor. Love it!
I can’t wait to try the other salad dressings! Thanks to Café 26 for reintroducing me to their products! 🙂
