Lamb Shank Casserole

Ingredients
Lamb shanks
Celery
Pumpkin
Potatoes
Diced onion
Crushed garlic
Vegeta stock
Hoisin sauce
Plain flour
Pepper
Rosemary sprig

Method
Coat lamb shanks in flour and put into a hot camp oven, turning to sear all sides. Add onion and garlic and cook till translucent. Add all the other veg (chopped into cubes) and cook for a few minutes. Pour in a few tablespoons of hoisin sauce and top with 2 cups of stock liquid, pepper and the rosemary. Cover and allow to simmer, turning shanks occasionally, for about 2 or 3 hours. If the liquid hasn't thickened sufficiently add a bit more flour or some gravy powder. I added some frozen peas and corn at the end to bulk up the vegies a bit as well

The concept for this recipe came from the Kitchen Goddess, Nigella Lawson who I give full credit.

Lots of stews, soups and casseroles here during the isolation lockdown so chose this one.

COQ AU RIESLING WITH BUTTERED NOODLES

Ingredients


2 tablespoons garlic infused olive oil
150 grams chopped bacon ( I used a piece of speck)
1 leek (finely sliced in rings)
8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
3 bay leaves
300 grams mushrooms (cut into strips)
1 bottle riesling
1 good dollop of thick cream
Salt  & pepper (to taste)
Chopped fresh dill (to serve)
Pasta of your choice

Method
Heat the oil in Camp oven and fry the bacon until crisp.  Add the sliced leek and soften it with the bacon for a minute or so.

Cut chicken thighs into 2 or 3 pieces each, tip them into the pan with the bay leaves, mushrooms and wine.  Season with salt and pepper to taste and bring to the boil, cover the oven and simmer gently for 30-40 minutes, stirring in the cream a few minutes before serving.

Cook pasta, drain then toss in butter.

Serve sprinkled with fresh dill.

Chicken and Egg plant Parmigiana
from the Coles, Whats for Dinner Live.
I adapted the recipe to what I had at home.
Ingredients
2 chicken breast fillets (about 120-150g each), halved crossways
1 brown onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, crushed (used crushed garlic)
1 eggplant, finely chopped
310g jar roasted pepper strips (capsicum), drained (used fresh capsicum chopped)
2 tomatoes, coarsely chopped
400g can no-added-salt chopped tomatoes
(I added 1 D'orsogna Chorizo )
1 bunch English spinach or 3 cups baby spinach leaves (fresh silverbeet from the garden)
1 cup coarsely chopped basil ( used cold blended Basil paste)
1/2 cup (50g) coarsely grated reduced-fat mozzarella
1/2 cup (40g) breadcrumbs
400g green beans, trimmed      (from the garden)
Basil leaves or flat-leaf parsley leaves, to serve

Method
Used the campoven for all the cooking.

Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the chicken for 3-4 mins each side or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.
Add the onion, garlic, eggplant and capsicum to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 mins or until the eggplant is tender. Add the combined tomato and simmer for 4-5 mins or until the sauce thickens slightly. Add the spinach and chopped basil. Remove from the heat.
Transfer the chicken to a deep baking tray. Top with the tomato mixture and sprinkle with mozzarella and breadcrumbs. Bake for 10-15 mins or until golden.
Meanwhile, cook the green beans in a saucepan of boiling water for 4-5 mins or until just tender. Drain.
Divide the chicken mixture among serving plates with the green beans. Sprinkle with basil leaves or parsley leaves to serve.
