Dutch oven recipe Pork & Porter Stew served with potato pancakes.
Finally had a day to myself so headed down to the marsh to do some open fire cooking using my Dutch Oven.
Since my Frontier Stove is being serviced it was time to do some open fire cooking. I had also a new video camera to try so thought i’d make a day by filming some cooking, review some new trouser I had delivered from Revolution Race, show how I look after my boots and make some more char cloth.
There was a draw back, I took all the footage but there was an issue whilst editing the footage as iMovie didn’t like the 4k 60FPS footage and it was flickering a lot. I had used my iPhone so had some footage left but only enough to show how I cooked the stew.
So this recipe is my own recipe loosely based on a Polish Dish.
- 2 x Pork steaks
- 1 x large potato
- 1 onion
- smoked paprika
- dried mushrooms
- 2 x carrots
- 1 x bottle of porter or stout
- Plain flour
- A little water
Chop the pork steaks into cubes, put back into bag and add 2 spoons of flour and shake the bag.
Cut onion and carrots
Place dutch oven onto coals and allow to heat (gentle heat).
Add meat and onions and allow to brown.
Once meat is brown add in the bottle of porter, paprika and carrots.
Stir regularly over allow heat for about 20 mins (add a little water if beer reduces too much.
Pancake: Open your bag of potato and onion and add 3 large spoons of plain flour, salt and pepper and a little water.
Hold top of bag and knead mix together (it should be the consistency of porridge).
Invert the Dutch Oven lid onto coals, add a little lard, allow to heat the squeeze out mixture and pat flat using spoon onto the lid of the oven.
Allow to cook for about 10 – 15 mins until golden brown turning often.
Serve stew onto pancake and enjoy.
