what I cooked yesterday and last week!
5 Attachment(s)
HI there
Thought I'd show you what I cooked last sunday and this - I'm teaching myself to cook in the wood oven
Last Sunday
I cooked a briam - like ratatouille but Greek version (minus eggplants/aubergines - hate the things)
stuffed tomatoes - Greek style (what can I say - it's where I learned to cook!) the tomatoes were too juicy - hence there's too much liquid - this did reduce once they'd cooled.
Chicken and potatoes (last sunday and this - youngest refuses to try my other efforts!

This Sunday
chicken wings in my spicy BBQ sauce (which I made up with whatever I had in the cupboards - still tasted nice!)
then the chicken and potatoes
followed by a beef stew (for today) with red wine etc which I put in in the afternoon and left for 7 hrs - my oven is shop bought and doesn't retain heat probably as well as it should.

Have to say I impress myself!!!!!! Just have to learn not to use too much wood like I did yesterday and the chicken cooked at super speed!
If anyone wants me to tell them the recipes (all made up in my mind) be glad to!

Those look good to me :) What temperature are you using for those dishes?

I'm wanting to get smart about briam, its new to me.

Re: what I cooked yesterday and last week!
Bit late in the day - but I don't use a thermometer - but light the oven and keep it lit till dome is white - then I let the flame go out - push the ashes to the sides/back - leave to cool slightly and cook in order of what I would in a normal oven (highest temp first etc)
Briam first:
I used
sliced courgettes (zucchini)
sliced onions
green bell peppers sliced
thinly sliced potatoes
2 cloves garlic - sliced
2 tins chopped tomatoes
tsp sugar
loads of freshly chopped parsley
dried oregano
plenty salt/black pepper
3tbsp olive oil (or if you are Greek - glug glug glug!)
throw everything in baking pan - top with water (to top of veg) mix
pour over olive oil and bake in oven without foil or lid (close door)- you'll see when it's cooked
Serve with feta cheese and crispy fresh bread.
