Cabela's Demonstrations

Yesterday I had the opportunity to demonstrate my passion of Dutch Oven Cooking at the Cabela's in Farmington.... We chose to demonstrate breads in the Dutch Oven as we often hear - bread is too hard....

Here is proof that it is not.

Zucchini Bread 

This time of year, who doesn't have a ton of Zucchini coming out of their gardens???

3 tsp vanilla

Combine Sugars, oil, eggs; beat until well blended. Add zucchini and vanilla. Sift and measure flour and other dry ingredients. Pour into greased 10" Dutch Oven, bake for 1 hour, at 350 degree. (5 coals on the bottom, 15 on the top).

Banana Bread

2 eggs
1 C Sour Milk (1 C milk 1 TBSP Vinegar)
1/2 tsp Salt

2 tsp salt
1 1/2 Tbsp yeast
1/4 C Oil

Combine 2 C flour, sugar, salt, & yeast in a large bowl. Heat water and oil until very warm (120-130 degrees). Add to flour mixture. stir in an additional 2 1/2-3 C of flour until mixture forms a ball. Knead in an additional 1/2 to 1 C flour until dough is smooth and elastic. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until double (about 1 hour). Punch down. Roll out on a floured surface, into a rectangle.

2 thinly sliced green peppers
1 thinly sliced yellow onion
1 C thinly sliced mushrooms (optional)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lb Deli Sliced Roast beef
1 lb sliced Provolone cheese

In a 12” Dutch Oven heat 2 Tbsp. Olive oil, sauté onion, pepper, and mushrooms till tender. 
Down the center of the rectangle of dough; place a layer of roast beef, a layer of cheese on the meat, sprinkle with onion, pepper, and mushrooms.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper. 

Cut the 2 outside columns in to 1” strips, beginning with the top fold the top center down slightly, do the same with the bottom and alternately fold strips over one another from top to bottom tucking the ends under. Place in a lightly greased oval DO. Cover Dutch oven and let rise for 15 minutes.
Brush top with egg wash and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese

Place in Oval Dutch Oven. Allow to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30 minutes, or till golden. (9 coals on the bottom 19 coals on the top).
