Cooking alfresco with the frontier stove. After a busy couple of days at work, the family away for the summer and extremely hot weather I decided to combine dog walking, swimming and evening meal all together.
I had decided on a evening cooking alfresco with the frontier stove. I had to carry my frontier Stove down to a very secluded beach near me and have an evening on the beach.
The walk from the church at Covehithe takes about 20 minutes.
The Frontier Stove isn’t lightweight but the journey wasn’t to bad because of the carry bag the stove is in.
I arrived on a very desolate beach, set up the stove, gathered some firewood as there’s plenty about because of the trees being washed onto the beach due to the coastal erosion then the dog and I had a swim.
Using a primitive method to light a fire the stove was soon fired up.
After the dog and I had a swim it was time to get the evening meal on.
Meal consisted of a huge piece of sirloin, king prawns, onions, garlic butter and Stilton to ooze over top of the steak.
I like using primitive methods I know there are easier methods but there’s something therapeutic about lighting a fire using flint and steel.
Place a knob of butter into a pan and cut a white onion in half and allow it to sweat. Break into pieces on its own over a fairly low heat for a good while.
Place the steak in the pan and cook one side to your liking (I like my steaks blue) flip it over. Add prawns and garlic butter and lay Stilton on top of the steak.
Once the under side of your steak is cooked to your liking, you can remove and serve.
Make sure you have a plate big enough unlike me as I had to eat out of the pan.
Serve with your favourite beer. I tried an oatmeal stout which went down really well.
Take your stove and head to the beach and have ago at cooking alfresco with the frontier stove.
