Apart from the standard barbeque we love to grill food over open fire, make stews, onepot recipes or use other means to prepare food. You'll notice that cooking is focussed on a group.... 5 to be exact, but I can easily make more. I love being the campcook every once in a while....
One of our earliest outdoorcookingutensils was our Hungarian army gulash kettle, which we bought in october 2010. It is made of steel, so rust can be a problem.
Offcourse we had to try it right away and the weather played along nicely. We do like beans and bacon and spices.... so the recipe can be guessed.....
In order to cook in style I cut a large cookingspoon out of a wooden plank. It turned out to be more of a canoepaddle than a spoon, but it's the thought that counts, right? It was a hard and bonedry piece of wood, but in the end the armyissue SAK did it's job...
|Bacon, minded meat, brown beans, red beans, corn, fresh mushrooms, onions and peppers, jalapenos, chilisauce, paprikapowder..|
|This was as close as I could get to an open fire in our small backyard.|
|It tasted real good!!!|
|At night it did get kind off nippy...|
So I brought out the sewingmachine and made some "clothes" for both of them.
|Inside the bag there's room for a cuttingboard and cookingutensils|
|This way I could attach it to my Berghaus|
|Ready to go and cook for a squad!!|
|The initial setup|
|I added an aluminum lid, made from an IKEA fruitplate and a kitchencupboardgrip. No more ashes in my food!|
This lid rides upside down in the pan, when being transported.
|that large piece of meat is called flintasteak... and it's pork|
|you could say I did enjoy myself... and it tasted very good, too!|
|my gang... yes, it got quite cold after sunset...|
Than take the pot off the fire and add the coffee; 1 scoop per cup. Stir, put back on the fire to simmer for a few minutes. Do not boil!! Than add a splash of cold water and serve.....
