First things first… The meat. Here at Morelands Grill, we source our prime cuts of 30-day Himalayan salt dry aged Irish beef from well-known butcher Pat McLoughlin. Ask your butcher for fillet, rib eye or striploin steak. Or choose lamb or pork chops. Quality is your main ingredient; go with your butcher’s recommendation. Homemade burgers are best and so easy to make. All you need is salt, pepper and good minced beef. Add classic Bearnaise sauce and sandwich in a warm crusty white roll.
02. Make your Favourite Marinade
When it comes to seasoning, anything goes. Fancy Cajun? Or Mediterranean? Try olive oil, salt, lemon, herbs & spice for a simple rub. This helps to tenderise and flavour the meat. Or go for a tasty marinade. Teriyaki and Jerk are best paired with chicken, while a Whiskey Glaze will seriously up your steak game.
Soak your meat overnight to mop up the flavour. Michael Liu, Chef at Morelands Grill, loves to barbeque Spicy Lamb Skewers. Marinade in sesame oil, soy sauce and spices, then thread with mixed pepper and onion. Just add heat!
03. Don’t Forget the Veggies
Cooking for vegetarian friends? Barbeque is not just for meat-lovers! Tuck in to grilled halloumi skewers, corn on the cob, blackened sweet potato & seared stuffed peppers.
Nothing tastes better than freshly griddled vegetables. And the charred stripes look great! Get creative with sides, too. All kinds of ‘slaw, creamy potato salad & colourful cous cous. Boille Irish goat’s cheese is a favourite of our Executive Chef, John Hickey. Try it melted over grilled polenta or portobello mushroom. Pair with some fiery rocket and fresh tomato salsa!
04. Equipment / Sauce Brush
A chef is only as good as his tools. Half the fun of barbequing is buying the kit! A sturdy oven glove & tongs are barbeque must-haves. Have everything ready, before you start. A brush for your marinade is vital when it comes to packing flavour. Coat your meat generously to allow for plenty of overnight soakage. Add more while cooking, to caramelise.
05. Building the Perfect Barbeque Fire
Heat is the name of the game! Your barbeque should be red hot. Pack the charcoal together for intense, direct heat. Don’t forget to put a lid on it to trap all of that smoky goodness.
Add coal regularly to keep the grill burning hot & spread around for even temperature. Try adding wood chips for extra smoky flavour. Once the flames die down, you’re ready to go.
Timing is key; make sure your meat is cooked through, but not cremated! Add more marinade during cooking to seal in moisture and ensure to rest the meat before serving.
Book a table at Morelands Grill.
The last of our barbecue tips; don’t be afraid to experiment. You are the pitmaster! At Morelands Grill our Josper Grill sizzles with tasty Crevettes, Dexter Beef Burger, Fillet of Irish Beef and juicy Lamb Chops…
Clarify the butter by melting it in a small, heavy-based saucepan over a low heat. When the butter is foaming, remove the pan from the heat and leave it to stand for a few minutes so that the white solids sink to the bottom of the pan. Sieve the butter through a fine sieve and discard the solids.
Pour the vinegar into a non-reactive saucepan. Add the shallots, chopped tarragon and salt, to taste. Heat gently over a medium heat until the volume of liquid has reduced by more than half. Strain and set aside until completely cooled.
Lightly beat egg yolks with one teaspoon of water. Stir the egg yolk mixture into the cooled vinegar, then add the lemon juice.
Pour the mixture into a bowl suspended over a pan of simmering water (do not allow base of the bowl to touch the water). Whisk constantly until the sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon and has increased in volume.
Remove the bowl from the heat and slowly pour in the clarified butter in a steady stream, whisking continuously, until the mixture is thick and smooth. Fold in the tarragon leaves and season to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

If wine is your preferred tipple of choice when eating out, we are sure you will agree that it is a beverage built for food, which can add a texture and richness to it.
There are certain elements you need to get right to elevate your wine choice from being a good one to a great one. To give you a crash course in what you need to consider: when it comes to wine, you are focusing on its properties in terms of acidity and tannins. When it comes to your dish of choice, you are looking to match the wine’s properties with the salt and fat components of the food.
While there is no wine that goes with everything, we are firm believers that there is a wine for every dish. With that in mind, we have compiled a short guide to some food and wine pairings that you might like to consider when you dine with us at Morelands Grill.
If you decide to order the Grilled Organic Clare Island Salmon, with champ, grilled asparagus, tomato and brown shrimp cream sauce, then we would recommend you pushing the boat out a bit and trying the Louis Latour, Domaine de Valmoissine, Pinot Noir. Now, that might sound like we are breaking the traditional rule of fish with white wine, but hear us out. Wines with low-tannins that are light and juicy, like this pinot noir, work nicely with a relatively meaty fish like fresh salmon. The richness of the salmon is complemented by the acidity of pinot noir, with the grilling process accentuating the oakiness of the wine.
If the Risotto of Wild Irish Lobster, with seared king scallops, sea rosemary and Parmesan catches your eye, then you must try theCakebread, Chardonnay, California,a silky new world white wine which is delicious with shellfish. Both elements share buttery flavours, a rich, creamy texture and good intensity of flavour. The acid in the wine helps enhance the sweetness of the lobster and scallops, while also cleansing the palate.
Zinfandel is one of the few wines that can handle a good, old-fashioned smoky, intense barbecue. The sweetly fruited flavours of a big Zinfandel, like Morgan Bay, are a natural complement to barbecued meats.
We would be remiss not to mention the 15 Champagne and Prosecco options on the menu. Sparkling wine is so versatile with food. A Brut Champagne like our Taittinger Brut Réserve NV has a touch of sweetness, which makes it extra-refreshing when served with salty foods, like our Morelands Crab Cakes.
And last but certainly not least on the suggestions list is our recommendation to try a Rosé — people tend to assume that it’s only for summer drinking, but it is truly versatile year-round. A Rosé, like ourCasa Roja Rosado Rosé Garnacha, 2015, Spainmakes an excellent accompaniment to richer dishes, like our Morelands House Made Spatzli. The Garnacha grape is generally a spicy, berry-flavoured variety that is soft on the palate. Light in colour, this Casa Roja Rosé makes for a fresh and fruity glass of vino, with its delicate nuances of redcurrant and raspberry.

McLoughlins, a family tradition meets Peter Hannan for some Himalayan inspiration…
Now in its 3rd generation, McLouglins have put the relationship between farmer and customer to the forefront since 1965 and we are delighted to work with them as they source Peter Hannan’s 30-day Himalayan salt aged Irish beef. McLoughlins provide the top restaurants in the country with premium meats. It is no mean feat that they count Michelin Stars among the restaurants they supply! Customer satisfaction remains paramount to this family craft butchers and this results in excellent meats, where the taste tells its own tale!
Peter Hannan, set up his multi-award-winning company in 1991 and has won numerous awards for their system of dry-aging meat in a specially designed cold chamber. The chamber comprises of a 12ft wall of 1,000 hand–cut Himalayan rock salt bricks. The salt is known for its exceptional flavour-enhancing qualities. The dry-aging process takes place over a period of 28–45 days, which concentrates the flavour of the meat, and seals in the natural juices. All our meat dishes are prepared on our Josper Grill – read more about the process here to whet your appetite for how we cook our premium beef dishes.

Dublin City, we came, we saw. We ate! Morelands Grill. Good food. Good times!
Morelands Grill is only a stone’s throw from Trinity College Dublin, adjacent to Temple Bar and a whole host of hotspots including some of Dublin’s best bars, restaurants and clubs. In that sea of dining options, the question for us was: how do we make sure that we stand out from the crowd? The answer, as it turns out, was simple – invest in a Josper Grill.
Our Dublin 2 eatery decided that the best way to instil a moreish taste in the menu was to install this state-of-the-art grill in our kitchen. It was first created in 1970 by restaurateurs and chefs Josep Armangue and Pere Juli as a combination grill and oven for their own restaurant in Spain. These days, its reputation for producing flavoursome and mouth-watering dishes precedes it, and so the Josper Grill – which gets its name from its creators – can be found in restaurants the world over.
A post shared by Morelands Grill (@morelandsgrill) on
Cooked at temperatures of up to 500 degrees, perfectly seared, cooked to perfection.
Executive chef John Hickey explains more about why Morelands Grill opted for the Josper Grill when planning the kitchen set-up: “It gives excellent flavour on grilled meats from a charcoal oven. You are cooking at temperatures of up to 500 degrees, which is ideal for searing or cooking steaks quickly. You also use less butter or oils while cooking.’’
“The result is less fat on the meat as it is rendered away through grill bars, and there is more moisture in the meat, as it has been sealed in at such a high heat.’’
“I like using it because it’s faster than an open grill, so it prevents food from drying out or burning. As it is a closed-door system, it also means that there are fewer flames, and less heat in the kitchen which makes it more comfortable for team to work in.’’
Smoked Meat, Searing or barbecuing
“When it comes to devising menus, it allows for versatility in terms of food styles and recipes. For example, it can also be used to smoke overnight, so it does great smoked chicken, fish, or brisket. It definitely adds a unique flavour to the meat.”
So, the tools of the trade are top-notch, what about the ingredients? In terms of its beef offerings, our menu follows a time-honoured line of choice – fillet, rib eye and striploin steak. The beef is sourced from a small group of farmers in the South Leinster region. Their livestock is reared on lush, green grass – which Ireland thankfully has in abundance – and grains. No artificial growth promoters or additives are used.
Already a firm favourite on our menu is the 10oz Rib Eye Steak, which is a salt-aged Irish beef by Peter Hannan of Hannan Meats. Using a cold chamber lined with blocks of Himalayan Salt, the beef is dry-aged for 30 days. This process has already won his company numerous awards for producing wonderfully flavoursome meat.
When it comes to what sauce to serve on the side, you can opt for the traditional accompaniment to steak, Green Peppercorn and Brandy sauce, a richer Béarnaise option, a classic French Bordelaise, or a Prawn Butter sauce.
Not just steak, our seafood is exceptional
For those who have a combined craving for seafood and meat, you can also order some buttered prawns or seared scallops. Our seafood, like our beef, is sourced locally.
So, in a nutshell, what can we guarantee you in the ultimate steak experience at Morelands Grill? Prime grade Irish beef, aged to perfection, and cooked on the best grill in town to give you the best steak in Dublin!
Why not book a table and come taste it for yourself if you don’t believe us.
