Have you ever been cooking indoors, and awareed to be outside enjoying the gorgeous weather? Maybe it is summer, and the sun is shining and the sky is clear blue. Or, maybe it is autumn where you live, and the leaves have turned a crisp golden brown. Maybe it is even winter time, and the snow flakes are sparkling in the cool air. Whatever season it is, it is always the perfect season to do your crock pot cooking on a fire pit outdoors.
There are many recipes that can simply be catered to cooking on your crock pot. One scrumptious recipe that can be cooked on a pit is french onion soup. The steps are very simple. First, chop up two on your favorite kind. I prefer to use yellow onions, only because they are usually on sale at the grocery store! Fry these up in a pan. After you have fried up the onions, you can add them to a crock that you will take outside. Pour one can of beef stock broth into a large pot along with the fried up onions.
After you have created this special mixture, take it out to your fire pit. Leave it on the fire pit for about 20 minutes, stirring it every now and then. You can also keep an eye on it. After the onions have become tender, you can take the pot off of the fire pit. Pour into bowls, and do not forget the croutons and cheese! Sprinkle some of your favorite cheese on the bowls of soup, and you have just created an entitlement meal using your fire pit!
Another great recipe to cook on a fire pit is vegetable beef stew. Simply put a beef roast in your favorite crockpot, along with a can of dark soda. Include your favorite spices and vegetables in the mix. Some great vegetables to add into the mix are baby carrots and celery. Simply keep your crockpot on low, and enjoy the amazing looks on your guests' faces! You can eat the roast beef alone or choose to make hearty sandwiches with the beef. The choice is yours!
Cooking on a fire pit is one of the best features of these flame gems. After you are done cooking up a meal, why not trying melting some chocolate and creating chocolate covered strawberries? Other dessert ideas include s'mores and even hot fudge sundaes!
