Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with electric beaters until well combined. Pour into a greased pie dish and bake for 1 hour at 180 degrees. Serve warm with cream.

Dora Hide and Find1Recipe Hints and Tips:

coca-cola bbq ribs

1 (1.5 liter) bottle of Coca-Cola (not diet!)
1 large onion, quartered
6 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
2 bay leaves
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorns
2 racks baby back ribs (about 4 pounds)
2/3 stick unsalted butter
1 small white onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup ketchup
1? tablespoons yellow mustard
? cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 375ml can Coca-Cola (not diet!)
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
In a large pot, add the (1.5 litre) bottle of Coca-Cola, onion, garlic, bay leaves and peppercorns. Add the ribs and, if necessary a bit of water just to ensure the ribs are submerged completely. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer, turning the ribs occasionally, until the meat pulls away from the bone, about 1 hour.
Meanwhile, to make the sauce combine the butter, onion, garlic, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and (12 ounces) 375 mls Coca-Cola in large heavy sauce pan. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer for about 25 minutes stirring often until sauce is thickened and reduced. Season to taste with salt and pepper and let cool slightly. Using a blender, puree the sauce.
Note: Sauce can be made up to 5 days ahead and stored in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
Preheat the grill to high.
Remove the ribs from the pot, pat dry, season with salt and pepper and brush liberally with the sauce. Grill, turning often, until charred on the outside, about 8 minutes. Loosely tent the ribs with foil and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into individual ribs. Serve extra sauce on the side for dipping.

Pulled Pork Barbecue

Cook Time: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours


pork loin or shoulder roast
carrots and celery
2 cups of water
1 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/3 cup catsup
1 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon salt

Whether you use pork loin or shoulder is a personal preference, so choose accordingly, but remember that the shoulder meat will have more fat to it than loin meat and produce a juicier barbecue.
Place the pork roast on a shallow rack in a 12" deep Dutch oven, prepared for baking at 300?. I use 10-12 coals under and 8-10 coals on top of the Dutch oven. Next add 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, and 2 cups of water to the Dutch oven. Slow-cook the pork for 2-3 hours, depending on size, until the fats are broken down and the meat is tender enough to easily pull apart with a fork. While slow-cooking, replenish the coals as needed and rotate the Dutch oven and lid occasionally to avoid any hot spots. While the lid is off to be rotated, marinade the roast with the juices and check the water level. Add more water as needed so that there's always some under the roast.

When the pork is done, cover it and set it aside for about an hour to cool before pulling it. While waiting for the pork to cool down, prepare the serving sauce: strain 1 cup of the pork drippings from the Dutch oven and blend it with the other sauce ingredients: vinegar, brown sugar, tamato sauce, cayenne, and salt. When it's cooled, shred the pork into a large pot, stir in the sauce, and heat. Serve hot on a bun with cole slaw and potato chips.

Servings: as needed
Preparation time: 4 hours

Cheesy Potatoes

Prep Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


4 slices of bacon
3 large baking potatoes
1 large onion, sliced
1 cup of processed cheese, cubed or shredded
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon bacon fat
1 tablespoon minced garlic [optional]


Cook bacon until crisp and drain on a paper towel. Crumble when cool and set aside. Peel and slice potatoes, placing them on a 9-inch by 13-inch double layer of foil as you go. Separate the onion slices into rings and layer over potato slices. Add the crumbled bacon, cheese, pepper and parsley. Dot potatoes with butter and drizzle with bacon fat. Wrap foil loosely around potatoes, making sure ends are well sealed. Cook about 4 inches from hot coals on grill for about 1 hour or until tender. Turn package often to keep from burning.

Awwww mate!! Definitely gunna try a couple of those!! Got me sitting here salivating now! ... Have got a recipe here I will put up as soon as I can find it again, and fine tune it... A creation of mine and the ex's... Then again, I'll put it up now, and maybe someone else can try it/tune it...

Steak and Bacon Bake

Quantities will vary depending on number of people to feed obviously so...


Thin BBQ steaks
anything else that takes your fancy!


On the BBQ/hotplate quickly brown the steaks and bacon, but not quite fully cooked...
Place the rack in the bottom of the camp oven, then layer the bottom with several steaks to cover...
Place a layer of bacon on top of them, then cover with grated/shredded cheese...
Repeat until ingredients used or oven is full, whichever... adding salt/pepper/whatever else according to tastes...
Final layer on top of cheese, light sprinkle of breadcrumbs...
Cook in the camp oven until cheese is melted through (time will vary depending on heat and quantity...)...

Serve it up...

It's kind of like a lasagne, but without pasta and uses pieces of meat instead of mince... Layers of mushrooms or tomatoes may also make a tasty addition through the mix...
