  • For those looking for the recipes, I’ll try my best (I’m not always the best at measuring things when I cook).

    Bread:

    3 cups of all-purpose flour
    1 tsp salt
    2 tsp sugar
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    ¼ cup parmesan cheese
    2 tsp dry yeast
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1⅓ cup warm water
    Fresh rosemary stripped from branches and chopped (sorry i don’t have a real quantity)
    1 egg white + 1 tbsp water

    I use and electric mixer with a dough hook, but you can make this by hand. Add water, yeast and sugar to mixer bowl and let sit until it is activated (~10 mins). Mix the other dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Once yeast is activated, start mixer on low, add oil and slowly add flour. Let knead for 10 mins. Note: you may need to add more flour until you get the dough to form a ball on the hook. Once kneading is done then shape your loaf and let rise for 1-2 hours.

    I cook my bread on a ceramic stone on my BBQ (works great for pizza too!). Put the stone on, turn grill to high heat until it gets to about 350. Brush dough with egg white and water mix, then sprinkle with sea salt. Turn grill to low/medium (want to maintain about 300), put bread on stone and close grill. Bake time is about 10 mins.

    Notes:
    -it could use a little more salt and maybe baking powder
    -cooking in the oven and cooking slower may give the bread more time to rise, worth experimenting with
    -if you want different crusts, here is a good link for different egg washes (sorry on mobile) https://www.thespruce.com/egg-wash-yeast-breads-rolls-3057783
    -this makes two medium sized round rolls if you don’t want to braid it

    Stew:

    I really just made this up on the fly, but I’ll do my best.

    2-3 cups beef stock (adjust based on how soupy you want)
    3-4 lb pot roast (or cut of choice)
    4 carrots, chopped
    1 stock celery, chopped
    6 red potatoes, cubed
    1 medium onion, diced
    3 cloves garlic, diced
    1/4 c. Flour
    Salt, pepper, paprika
    Bonus: I threw in about half packet of French onion soup mix I had in the pantry

    Rub the meat in the flour and spices. Throw it all in the crockpot, set to low and cook for 12 hours. You could probably do high for 4-6 hours. I loosely shredded the beef at the end, you could probably start with it cubed if you wanted.

  • That bread looks yummy.

  • Bread looks so gorgeous and the stew too, can you share the recipe please

  • The bread sure does look delicious. Perfect fall food. Recipe?

  • Recipe?

  • Recipes? Please?

  • I never bake, love to cook tho. The only thing I’ve ever entertained as maybe trying to bake is some sort of salty bread with rosemary or some kind of spice inside of it. This looks amazing… I’d love to checkout the recipe!

  • I remember just a few years back, I spent about a month in the New Mexican back country. I had hiked a near 85 miles and helped trail-blaze, even joined a search and rescue team for a few kids washed away by a flash flood, rest their souls, and even had young woman in our group get struck by lightning. Anyway, we got out of the mountains on our nearing the end of our journey and camped in this gorge next to a river, where a little cantina cooked us up some stew like this and I’ll be damned if that wasn’t the best meal I’ve ever had in my entire life. Thanks for the nostalgia,
    Papa bless
