Cooking Competition, Winning recipe by Colin



  • 1.5kg blade steak
  • 3 tablespoons butterkid3
  • 1 onion
  • 2 peeled green apples
  • 2 medium bananas
  • 1 tbsp curry powder (or to taste)
  • 4 tbsp plain flour
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 beef stock cube
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • Salt, pepper to taste


  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • Milk

Method – curry

  1. Coat meat in flour and brown in 90g of melted butter.
  2. Add chopped onion, cook 1 minute.
  3. Add water and stir.
  4. Peel and dice apples and bananas and add to pot with curry power, beef stock, brown sugar, salt and pepper.
  5. Cover and cook until meat is tender on low heat*
  6. Don’t let your camp oven run out of water or it will burn.
  7. Cook for approximately 2 hours.

Method – dumplings

  1. Mix self raising flour and salt in a bowl.
  2. Add enough milk to combine together.
  3. Not too wet and not too dry is the trick.
  4. Drop in approximately two tablespoons of dumpling mix at a time.
  5. Close lid and leave for approximately 20 minutes on medium heat.

I don’t put heat on top of the lid.

* prepare your fire prior and pre heat your camp oven. Or if at home cook on the stove in a large pot on a low heat so just simmering.

NOTE: Make sure you still have a fair bit of liquid in your camp oven when you add the dumpling mix. Dumplings will absorb some of the liquid when cooking.
