Dutch Oven Beef Stew.



Ingredients:

  • Olive Oil, Just enough to thickly coat the bottom of Dutch Oven
  • 2 lbs. Stew Meat, cubed
  • 2 Med. Size Sweet Onions, cut into wedges
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 6 Med. Carrots, cut into 1" pieces
  • 6 Ribs of Celery, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Potatoes, cut into 1" pieces
  • 1/4 cup Chopped Parsley
  • 2 packs of Beef Stew Seasoning
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • Salt and Pepper to taste



Directions:
  1. Place your empty Dutch Oven over the coals to preheat.
  2. After the oven is heated, add the Olive Oil. You'll know it's hot enough when the surface of the oil is shimmering.
  3. Carefully add the meat to the oven. Stir periodically until it's nicely browned on all sides.
  4. When the meat is browned, add the onions and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions have softened.
  5. Add the rest of the vegetables into the oven and stir. Add the parsley, beef broth, water and seasoning.
  6. Place on lid and add some coals lid. Rotate oven and lid every twenty minutes to cook evenly.
  7. When the vegetables are getting close to being done, add the flour to thicken it up.
  8. Continue cooking until all the vegetables are done.
Enjoy!

That's funny you said that. Your the 3rd person to make that comment. I will defiantly have to make the cornbread next time.

OMG!! Richard, I really felt like I could smell that picture! It looks delicious. Great job! I KNEW I should have purchased the tripod at the Lodge Outlet we went to last week. We could have gone really crazy in that store!!

I love my tripod....but wouldn't ya know, the handle of my DO has a spiral thing around it to keep it cool and the hook has to be wrapped around that and hooked back on itself, which makes everything very iffy.

Well that's stuff we're gonna have to figure out ourselves because we were lucky enough at the campground to have one of those round campfire rings with a rack that would raise and lower so the DO could just be balanced on that.  Don't know how we'll do it right w/o all the equipment.  But we'll have fun working on it.

Judy, where was that outlet store? We are heading north next week and if we are close enough to it, I would love to plan a visit there.

This was actually the first time I cooked over the fire using the tripod. In the past, I would just sit the oven on some coals right on the ground. They make Dutch oven tables which I would love to have. This will keep the oven at a good working height. Just shovel some coals on the table, place the oven on top of the coals, then some more coals on top of the DO. No more killing the back from working on the grown.....maybe one day.

Richard, We actually decided to run hwy 441 from here in Douglas to Cherokee.  We stopped in Commerce (near Athens) to visit Roy's brother and he told me about one being there.  Exit 149 off I-85, south 0.2 miles toward Commerce on Hwy 441. Turn right at the Commerce Crossing sign on to Pottery Factory Drive. 

Lodge Factory Store, Commerce, GA
165 Pottery Factory Drive
Commerce, GA 30529

Roy and I also took a day and went to Knoxville (to look at RVs of course) and we went thru Pigeon Forge and found this one.  Exit 407 off I-40, toward Pigeon Forge, 3.6 miles on the right next to Smoky Mountain Knife Works.

Lodge Factory Store, Sevierville, TN
105 Knife Works Lane Suite 2
Sevierville, TN 37876

Leave your wallet in your truck or ???????  LOL.  Have a super time and the leaves should be getting better and better by now.  I want to go back!!!

Thanks. I doubt that we will make it to Tennessee, so I will check to see how far we will be from the one in Commerce.

Looking forward to camping with you guys at Yogi. I'm sure you will have your DO cooking skills down pat by then.

Right now Amazon has the 32" camp chef one on sale for $88 with no tax and free shipping. That's half the price of the one made by lodge.
I have an old shelf that i think will work for now, just have to make a base and a wind screen.
