Sometimes inspiration strikes and it all comes together. Dutch oven, Beer, Bread, Cheese, my favorite sauce and Cooking Outdoors. For me it was exciting because I love to create new recipes and this time I actually wrote it down to share. How many times have you managed to put a fantastic meal together from scratch and then say “I need to write that down”. Whoops, all gone …
Not this time, I tell ya!
Beer bread, the ultimate outdoor cooking bread. Fast, easy and requires beer, I love it.
• 3 cups self rising flour
• 3 tbls sugar
• 1 tps salt
• 8oz Chipotle Cheddar Cheese (I used Bravo Farms Original Chipotle Cheddar)
• 1 small can diced Chiles (Hot or Mild) undrained
• 2 tbls All Spice Cafe Chipotle Garlic Sauce
• 1 can of Beer (Cheap can like Pabst Blue Ribbon)
Cube the Chipotle Cheddar Cheese up and add to all of the other dry ingredients, mix thoroughly. Now add your All Spice Cafe Chipotle Garlic Sauce and beer, mix till it is blended (do not over mix, lumpy is good). Poor this into a grease 10″ Dutch oven or a Bread loaf pan for the grill. It will look like a wet glob of flour and that is perfect. No rising or kneading necessary.
Outdoor Cooking with a 10″ Camp Dutch oven will require 7 coals on the bottom and 13 coals on the top. Grilling your Beer Bread will require indirect heat.
It’s done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean and thumping the bottom sounds a dull thump when you rap it.
Warm Beer bread with a slight kick to it! The cheese was gooey and tasty, crust had a wonderful crunchiness to it. Great for sopping up some soup or sauces! But, I ate mine just as it was, warm, crunchy, gooey and delicious!
This was a big hit at the last Dutch oven Gathering.
