Dutch Oven Recipes

Looking to break my DO in tomorrow. Searching for some good recipes or ideas from my fellow egg heads. Any input would be great. I’m game for pretty much any egg cook.

    Pepper stout beef. A quick search here will give a lot of options.

    Dutch ovens are made for cobbler. 
  • You need to make sure that thing is properly seasoned @g8golfer. Or you will spend hours cursing the day you bought it. (Believe me, I had one I swore was "pre-seasoned...it's my red headed stepchild"

    As far as recipes... chili, soups, chickens, cobblers (apparently @DoubleEgger and I both have the same inner fat kid cause that was my first thought)

    If you would put it in a crock pot it can Dutch oven. 

    There is a Boy Scout book you can buy online about Dutch oven meals. I can't remember the name, I've had a hard copy since I was a kid. Great resource. It's what we had to use every summer camp and camp out to learn how to cook in one on coals, gas, and open flame. Tons of good stuff. 

    Regardless of the seasoning, my first cook would be bacon.

    @Killit_and_Grillit had the DO for awhile and have it seasoned just never really used it. Might go with chili just according to what the wife is feeling. Looking for that book now. Thanks. 
  • Chili is a good start. 

    Drop biscuit chicken pot pot pie is always a win especially on a cold camping night. 

    I just looked up the book. I think the newest edition has a different cover. I'll see if I can find the old one tomorrow

  • What did you decide to cook on your D.O.?
  • Have you tried over the top chilli?

  • g8golferg8golfer Posts: 877
    @Budaman5000 haven’t got to try anything yet. Looks like another long night at work. Saw several discussions on the forum for the over the top chili but haven’t pulled the trigger on it yet. Is it that good?

    Chili.  A million times over.  So good!

    Also, do a Google search for Julie’s camp bread.  Easy to make and adaptable.  We made some with cheddar cheese and rosemary and it was dynamite.

    Over the top chili for sure, a real crowd pleaser, the crowd in question being over 20 people :). This is my recipe:

    The other thing I cook in a Dutch Oven is bread:

    @DoubleEgger / @Killit_and_Grillit - got a decent recipe for cobbler you could share?

    I have a cast iron dutch oven that I use regularly for one main recipe:

    Fill it half way full with peanut oil.  Heat the oil to 350 degrees.  Drop in some fresh cut chicken wings, preferably all flats.  12-15 minutes later remove, place in a large bowl, and toss with your favorite sauce (make sure it's got some heat).  Add some ranch and celery, and a few ice cold beers.  Man, now you are eating!!!

    Running behind at work so I decide to do chicken n dumplings on the stove. Baked the chicken first with S&P and dizzy pig tsunami spin before I combined with the dumplings. Man it was awesome. Wife was pleased.

  • I have made over the top chilli once last year at the end of winter... fantastic would highly recommend  it if have not tried it... the meatball is super tender and full of flavor...of course I added in like a 1.5lbs of bacon in it...with some seasonings and Portuguese sausage....

    dutch oven potroast is hard to beat in the egg. ive been backing off on liquid added to the point my next cook might just be some beef marrow bones covering the bottom, some onions quartered on top of the bones, topped with a seasoned chuck roast. 320 indirect for about 4 hours for a big roast til it starts to fall apart. im thinking the onions might have enough liquid

    - 1 on cooking tips from the Scouts.  While the group has become more inclusive over time, many of these recipes were developed by clueless dads trying to find a way to feed 20 hostile Cub Scouts when they packed the food but forgot some key elements of the cook.  These dads were not like you.  These are the dads from the sixties that went to work and came home to a hot meal without ever having stepped foot in the kitchen.  Untrained men.

    That is how I came to eat an egg poached in an orange peel while at Camp Strake with my dad in the '70s.  While I am sure he loved me very much, it was not reflected in the quality of that egg... which was horrible.
