After a few beers and a few laughs, Harry from Fire to Fork and I had planned a trip away to do some cooking over the fire.
We were heading bush to try an idea and it revolved around a beer can chicken. Could we cook a chook from the inside out? Instead of beer in the can what about coals from a fire? A little fire in the cavity slowly cooking and sealing all those yummy juices... Click here to see how it turned out.
We hit the road after work on a Friday and as we would be getting in late we needed to knock up a few quick dinners for all the crew.
Once the fire was lit Harry got to it. We boiled some water for the Campers Pantry instant meals and peas. Once rehydrated the meals were spooned into a cast iron pie pots laid with a sheet of puff pastry. Then the peas, potato gems and finally grated cheddar cheese as a topper. The lids were popped on and the pies placed into the fire.
Very little prep and very little cleanup needed.
Photos below of the steps from start to finish. There really is nothing to it.
Thanks, Harry for all these photos and the pies, they were delicious.

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...
