Bill Strong Denver River Recipes

Hi All!

I'm still working on river recipes.  Thanks for all the responses.

Here's some Dutch Over ideas from the fine folks at Mountain Buzz!

Thanks for Cataraft Girl and the rest for these yummy ideas!   And here's a few links for other Dutch Oven ideas.

The Recipe Ring

Pork Loin

All right!!!  Dump it all in and cook until pork is done.

Idea #2

Potatoes-Cubed, Sliced, Shreded, Your Preference.
Onions-Sliced, Diced, whatever
Salt n Peppah

Put it all in and let cook. Stir every now and again untill pork is done.

This is my favorite Dutch Oven dessert:

2 large cans of cherry pie filling
2 large cans of sliced peaches
1 yellow cake mix
1 can whipped cream

Strain the peaches, and use the juice to moisten the cake mix (if you do this in the cans, there will be fewer dishes).
Dump the peaches and cherry pie filling in the oven, spread the cake mix over the top.

Cook 30-40minutes I think.
Enjoy with cream squirted all over.


Ingredients: (6 servings)
½ pound bacon (or pre-cooked sausage)
1- medium onion
1- 2-pound bag of hash brown potatoes
½ pound grated cheddar
1 dozen eggs
Here you go:
The following requires 6-9 bottom coals and 12-15 top coals: Pre-heat Dutch oven. Slice bacon and onion into small pieces and brown in the bottom of the Dutch oven until onions are clear.
Stir in the hash brown potatoes and cover; remove cover and stir occasionally to brown and heat potatoes (15-20 minutes).
Scramble the eggs in a separate container and pour the mixture over the hash browns.
Cover and cook until eggs start to set. (10-15 minutes).

Awesome Dutch Oven Turkey & Rice Casserole
lb. bacon; 1/2" pieces
10 oz. cans cream of chicken soup
cups long grain white or wild rice
cups water
cups diced cooked turkey
tsp. dried parsley flakes
large yellow onion; diced
tsp. poultry seasoning
1 1/2
cup sliced mushrooms
tsp. paprika
cup chopped green bell pepper
salt and pepper to taste
cloves garlic; minced
cups grated cheddar cheese

Fry bacon in a 12" Dutch oven using 22-24 briquettes bottom heat until crisp. Add white or wild rice and continue cooking until rice is slightly toasted. Add turkey, onion, mushrooms, bell pepper, garlic, cream of chicken soup, water, and seasonings. Stir to mix completely. Bring contents to a boil then cover and bake for 60-90 minutes using 10-12 briquettes bottom and 14-16 briquettes top heat. When rice is tender sprinkle cheese over the top then replace lid and let stand for 5 minutes until cheese is melted.
Serves: 10-12
Cataraft Girl's Enchilada Casserole

1.5 lbs ground beef
Diced onion
1 cans enchilada sauce
1 can2 cream of mushroom soup
1 cans chopped green chilies
1 cans black beans
1 lb. shredded cheddar cheese
Tortilla chips - crushed.
Brown ground beef & onion
Add enchilada sauce, soup, chillies, beans
Alternate layers of chips, meat, and cheese, ending with
12 inch DO @ 350 degrees (whatever method you use to achieve that) for 30 - 45 min.
Serve with salsa & sour cream

I brown the ground beef and onion ahead of time at home and freeze it.

My kids still love this one:

chocolate cake mix
can of 7 up
cherry pie filling

Line DO with foil - dump everything in and cook. When your done throw the foil in the garbage and your done cleaning. They call it the cherry dump cake.

Chicken Pot Pie
1 bag Tyson diced chicken breasts
1 bag diced potatoes & onion
1 - 16oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables - thawed
2 - 10.5oz. cans cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup evaporated milk
Seasonings of choice - Mrs. Dash, garlic powder
Salt & pepper to taste
2 cans refrigerated biscuits

On stovetop, in 12 in. DO . Put chicken & potatoes in DO. Stir in vegetables, soup, evaporated milk, seasoning. Let mixture come to a low boil. Add water as needed if too thick. Cook until well heated. Place biscuits on top to cover.

8 - 10 coals on the bottom, 14 - 16 coals on top. Cook 25 - 30 minutes, until top is golden brown.

Cornbread Casserole
Chopped onion
7 oz. can diced green chilies
2 cans creamed corn - 14 oz.?
Marie Callender cornbread mix - use entire can
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 lb grated cheddar cheese

Saute onion & chilies in butter. Mix cornbread by pkg. directions. Add creamed corn, onion & green chilies, and cheese. Pour into a greased 12 inch DO. Swirl in the sour cream last. Bake @ 350 for
45 - 60 minutes.

For cobblers I like to use the Krusteaz cinnamon coffee cake mix as my topping. It's easy and tastes great. It comes with a packet of cinnimon sugar that you can sprinkle on your fruit filling if desired, or just sprinkle on top.

Drunk beef roast. (elk antelope moose what have you is ok too) Heat the oven with a good quarter inch deep pool of oil in it. on the stove is fine. Poke holes in the roast large enough to stuff a clove of garlic a green onion and a pepper.Long skinny red ones, slice off a jalapeno, whatever. 1 hole every inch or two. not so many the roast comes apart,but not so few no flavor is imparted to the meat. Mow off any onion greens that protrude. When the oil is about to start smokin, slide the roast in the pot, holes down. Let is sizzle till brown then flip it over. Add beverage of choice. A can of cheap beer, glass of wine,or? Let it cook to desired doneness. If needed relube with whatever beverage you started with. It,s better if you don't add liquid at the last, but don't let it go dry either. Drippings are wonderful.

The side dish is onion pie

Five or six large onions sliced thin and cooked down to golden brown. Mix a can of evaporated milk or a cup and a half of cream with and egg or two. Mix carmelized onion with milk & egg mixture. Salt pepper goram masala oinion powder what ever spices paddle your canoe. Top with pie crust or biscuits or bread slices or? Bake.

dessert is cobbler
One cup sugar
one cup milk
one cup flour
one TBS baking powder
(ya see a pattern here?)
Heat the oven, melt a half stick butter. Mix sugar flour and baking powder. Add milk. (if you got space, add an egg. Eggs will add loft though. Good at home, bad in a dutchie.) Pour the batter in onto the sizzling butter. Dump a can of fruit of choice on top of batter. Bake 20-30 minutes at about 350ish.

Okay let's start floating and cooking!!!!
