Letter: Here is a nice letter
from a lady who tried our recipes and Dutch-oven cooking for the first
time. Hope it encourages you.
hi lee, my name is donna. tried your dump cake recipe
while we were camping last week. i did the one with spice cake and
apple pie filling. i used a 9 qt. Dutch oven. i added fresh blueberries,
raspberries, and blackberries and used almost the whole can of 7-up,
man was it a big hit. i couldn't believe how easy it was.
especially since it was my first time with the Dutch oven.
also did a hobo stew in the Dutch oven the next night. used 1 chicken
breast, 1 petite sirloin steak, and 1 pork sirloin steak, left over
corn (that i cut off the cob) 4 potatoes, 1 medium onion,
lots of garlic cloves, 1 can beer, 1 whole tomato, 2-3 tablespoons
of spade l ranch beef marinade and seasoning. i cut up meat
and cooked it first with onion and garlic, then added tomato, corn,
seasonings, and water. i added potatoes last so they didn't
get mushy. cooked in Dutch oven with coals under and on top
for at least 2 hours. it was a major hit! really enjoy
your cowboy showcase site. thank you for sharing!
