March 13, 2017

There are few things in life more satisfying than a meal from the campfire. With diced lamb and Campers Pantry vegetables this dish is about as easy as they come.

The dry ingredients:
 - 0.5 pack Campers Pantry freeze dried mushrooms.
 - 0.5 pack Campers Pantry freeze dried beans.
 - 1 onion.
 - 4 garlic cloves.
 - 1 tin of whole peeled tomatoes.
 - 1 satchel of tomato paste.
 - Salt.
 - Oil.

The fridge ingredients:
 - 600 grams of diced lamb.

Theses quantities will feed two (large portions) or three (smaller portions).

The equipment:

 - Cast iron pot or camp oven to suit the group size.
 - Chopping board and knife.
 - Wooden spoon.
 - Coals (forearm size logs will quickly produce wonderful coals).

Dice the onion and garlic.

Heat the cast iron on the coals and then add some oil and the onion and garlic.

We head into the bush with Harry from Fire to Fork to try our hand at a sous-vide in a cooler. How to Sous-vide in a cooler while camping. Firstly this was not a hard cook at all, it's dead easy. Normally served in swanky restaurants or at home by keen cooks to impress guests, it’s a failsafe way to not overcook your cut if meat. Harry from Fire to Fork is no stranger to cooking over the fire and luckily for me, he’s not a vegetarian...
