I reckon one of the best parts about getting away is cooking and eating (with some nice wine and cold beer of course). One of my favourite dishes is lamb shanks marinated with garlic and oregano, with small peices of chili pushed into the meat. Slow cook in the camp oven for about hour and a half, adding some potatoes toward the end.

What is everyone elses favourite recipes.

Tailor/whiting/flathead etc fillets (caught in the morning or afternoon) in this beer batter, with a good sea salt, and very cold beer:

1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup self raising flour
Mix with water to thick consistency
Mix in a little beer to make desired consistency.

So far they are all good. I like anything that other people can't make then and there.

Pizzas are good, with bits of meat, some herbs, tomato paste, and some good mozzarella.

Apple crumble is good as well..

Some good, thick steaks...what more can I say?

a nice hot cheese and bacon damper is a lovely warmer whilst next to the fire on a cold evening... easy to cook.. serve out of the camp oven so that way there's minimal washing up!

good size bowl full of 1/2 self-raising flour and 1/2 half normal flour
1 can of beer
good pinch of salt
good hand-full of diced bacon
grated cheese (sliced is ok too!)

cook as per normal damper... but sprinkle cheese over the top about 5 mins from completion!

my other favourite is a big omelette in the morning... very filling... and you can throw just about anything into it!

We had some flavoured polish sausages warmed over the coals the other weekend, tasty and easy.
Caught some mullet one morning, took about 30mins to catch, clean and eat them, nothing quite like fresh fish in the pan.

Definitely tandori lamb cutlets done on the fire with a potato bake done in the camp oven. We have it every time we go camping.

Here goes,
25 spuds wrapped in foil
3Kg diced beef
couple of KGs chopped veggies
a litre or 2 of beef stock
1 bottle cleanskins red wine

Place everything except the spuds in a cast iron camp oven and put it in the fire for about 3 hours, about 1/2 way through put the spuds in the fire around the camp oven too.

Serves 10 adults & 10 kids.

Further to this add 5 stubbies per bloke and some girlie drinks for the ladies and 5-8 bottles of wine as the whole process may take up to 7 hours from start of cooking to end of dessert!!!
Happy camping
