I entered a contest!

As if I need any more cast iron.

There's a contest going on right now on facebook: Whoever submits the best recipe for a camp oven, wins a free 6 quart camp oven.

The recipe must include carrots.

I decided to enter the contest with the following recipe, modified from a recipe I posted last october:

Heat up your camp oven over coals. Melt 2 tbsp butter.

Brown slices of flank steak in the butter.

Add canned potatoes and carrots. You can use raw cut up potatoes and carrots, but it will take longer to cook. You can also add mushrooms.

Mix 1 or 2 cans of cream of onion soup in milk, and pour over.

Put the lid on, put the coals on top and simmer for a few hours until done.

I don't know if I'll win or not, but if I do, I'll have another camp oven.

***UPDATE: here was the winning recipe:

Meatloaf Flower Dinner
4 lbs. extra lean ground beef 1 tsp. oregano
1 large yellow onion; diced 1 tsp. rosemary
2 cups bread cubes 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1 cup milk 1/8 tsp. cumin
3 eggs 2 tsp. salt
1 small carrot; shredded 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup catsup 6-8 carrots
1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese 6 medium potatoes
2 tsp. thyme 10-20 asparagus spears
2 tsp. marjoram additional catsup as needed

In a small bowl add bread cubes and pack down. Add milk to bread cubes and allow to absorb.

To a large mixing bowl add beef, onions, bread and milk, eggs, grated carrot, catsup, cheese, and seasonings. Mix thoroughly. Place mixture in a 12" deep Dutch oven and spread it into a ring against the sides of the oven leaving a cavity in the center for vegetables. Cover the top of the meatloaf ring evenly with catsup.

Cut the carrots into halves lengthwise and the potatoes into quarters lengthwise. Trim the bottoms of the asparagus. Line the inside of the mealoaf ring with carrot halves. Inside the carrots stand potato quarters in a ring. Stand the asparagus spears in the center.

Roast using 12-14 briquettes top and bottom for 90 minutes. Rotate the Dutch oven and lid every 15 minutes.
