Cooking / food porn thread

Time to tune up your recipes or try out new recipes for the rapidly approaching season.

Great photos of river meals past? Post 'em up and brag!

Rules:
  • This is a food porn thread. You must post pics.
  • This is a river forum. You must use appropriate riverside cooking techniques. (Example: no electronic sous vide machines, but boil-in-bag is entirely appropriate.) You can use your electric range's cooktop as a substitute for your propane stove, but you can't use the oven unless you actually pack an oven on the river. Dutch oven? Heck yes!
Recipes and instructions are optional, but recommended.

New from the Muppet Test Kitchen, I did a mash-up of Huevos Rancheros and Eggs Benedict. Call it Huevos Benicios.

Fry tortillas in butter, cover with grated cheese. Basically make quesadillas.
Make hollandaise sauce (powdered mix is easiest)
Fry up chorizo, fry eggs.
Peel apart quesadillas, top with chorizo, eggs, hollandaise, salsa (I used tomatillo salsa) then add more cheese--I prefer crumbled cotija.

Another easy camp recipe is pork carnitas. You can either roast the pork at home and freeze it shredded in a ziploc bag, or cook it on a layover day. It will take 4-5 hours in a dutch oven.

Heat the DO. Add some olive oil and red and black pepper. Sear the roast on all sides. This doesn't "seal in the juices", but it does give the meat a nice caramely browning all over, and that flavor will cook through the meat as its roasting.

Add one chopped onion, a can of green chiles (chopped), and a can of red chiles in adobo sauce (chopped). Devein/deseed the red chiles unless you want your carnitas HOT.

I had it cooking at about 275-300F for about 4 hours. I ran 14 briquettes on top and 8 on the bottom. This gives more of a baking/roasting heat as opposed to a "frying" heat with the majority of the briquettes on the bottom.

When the meat was falling off the bone, I shredded it with two forks, pulled the bone, and any big fat chunks. Then added briquettes under the oven (or put the DO over your fire) and get it good and hot. Fry all the shredded pork in its own juices until the tips of the shredded pieces get crispy.

Eat with tortillas and fixin's, or also great in the morning with eggs and tortillas.

This does not look nearly as delicious as the meals you posted, but it is a trip classic:

Mountain Man Breakfast
Serves 4-6
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook time 30 minutes
Portions for a 10" Dutch Oven (adjust quantities accordingly for a bigger group or bigger DO)

1 lb Breakfast Sausage (I use Gimme Lean Breakfast Sausage)
1/2 cup Diced Onion
Lotsa Hash Browns (I fills a 1 gallon Ziploc)
12-18 Eggs (I crack the eggs ahead of time into a Nalgene. One Nalgene holds 22 eggs)
Lotsa Shredded Cheddar Cheese (Again, I just fill a Ziploc bag and use as much as seems right.)
Salt and pepper to taste (I use a pepper blend)
Flour Tortillas (1-2 per person)
Your favorite salsa
Sour cream
Fresh Sliced Avocado
Cooking oil

Brown the breakfast sausage and diced onion in the dutch oven. (5 minutes) Layer hash browns over the top of breakfast sausage until it is 3/4 to 1" think. Add salt and pepper to taste. Beat the eggs and pour over hash browns. Layer with cheddar cheese until you can't see the hash brown. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. It is down when the eggs are solid and the cheese is bubbling. To serve, use the inside of the lid to warm tortillas, scoop and garnish with salsa, sour cream and/or avocado. Enjoy!

Here is a wonderful site full of food porn, Easy Camping Recipes, Gourmet Outdoor Cooking - Dirty Gourmet. It looks like most is vegetarian as well, which is a nice touch. it is hard to find good hardy vegetarian DO recipes.

Ha, corn dogs on the river... I'm going to try chirros this summer. How do you dispose of the oil? I figured I would let it cool and bottle it back up.

Bottle it back up after it cools and take it out. That was soul food night. Mac and cheese on the side.
