Cooking and Recipes - Rob and Marg

Post by Rob & Marg » Tue Aug 24, 2010 6:55 am

This is a good spot to share your favourite recipes on the road, and to tell us about the cooking appliances you like to use. (I first found out about the turbo oven on the C&M forum!) We like food that is simple to cook with ingredients that are readily available - but it's nice to try something a bit different!

Hi Rob & Marg.
The cooking I like is the ones that are easy and quick to prepare. After all we " Eat to live,... not.... live to eat.

We also have a confection oven, and it prepares the meals quick and easy. Different story when free camping. The old fashion fry pan wouldn't be without it.

Jay&Dee.

 2 tablespoon of olive oil

Place oil & onion in a wok on medium heat & cook for a couple of minutes
Add mince to wok & cook until it changes colour

Add carrot & stir in
Add pasta sauce to wok, have wok on low to medium heat & allow to simmer

Here's an excerpt from our Tassie tour blog.

out of the wind though it is quite nice and I set up the Choofer and light it, to cook tea, for those of you who don’t know what a choofer is, it is a stove/oven/BBQ I made from an old 9kg gas bottle (if you want a full description and photos, look at http://www.candm.com.au/ that is the caravan and motorhome magazine website, go to the forum, and look under bright ideas, search for the entry “CHOOFERS” by Frank and Brenda) once it got up to heat I put in some marinated chicken mini drumsticks, wrapped in foil, and put the lid on, while that was cooking I got the flan base we had bought today made some thick custard, put it on with some tinned apples, and fresh blackberries I picked yesterday, covered that in foil, and got the vegies ready, while we had tea, I put the pie in the choofer and 40 minutes later desert was ready, it’s just as well we’re doing a lot of walking isn’t it, while we are having desert the water bucket is on the choofer to heat the water for the dishes and our wash, after having a chat by the camp fire with the other campers, we settled in to watch a movie.
