You don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking and cleaning up when you’re camping so choosing to use your Dutch Oven for a one-pot meal is a good idea. They are popular with campers because a Dutch Oven can take the heat and last for generations. The food tastes great, too. When it simmers and steams inside the sealed oven the flavors meld and are enhanced. Delicious.
You can find lots of Dutch oven one-pot recipes online, either on YouTube or on special cooking channels for websites like The New York Times. There are also many bloggers who publish tried and tested recipes. Nonetheless, you should make sure you use popular food blogs, in order to avoid spoiling your meal. There are many small bloggers who don’t have the means to cook all the recipes they publish, so they tend to take some photos from Flickr or Pinterest, and use random ingredients and quantities. This is why you have to stick with the popular ones, as they wouldn’t risk their fame by publishing fake recipes.
For instance, The Pioneer Woman, Simply Recipes and Country Living are all famous blogs you can trust. These modern bloggers don’t have a lot of time, so they’ve adjusted their cooking style and their recipes to the hectic life we all live these days. If they can put all ingredients in a pot, add water and spices, and cook it over low heat until all juices and flavors are released, they are surely going to do it.
Many of these recipes can be adapted to the campground. You really will be happy with your one-pot meals and the time it affords you to catch up with friends instead of cleaning up after dinner. We look forward to seeing you this summer.
