Dutch Oven Roasted Pork – enjoy the time around the fire

Dutch Oven Roasted Pork

Dutch oven-roasted pork can be prepared while camping when you have a little bit more time as the cooking is longer than our usual meals.

Grab a nice, boneless pork ham and transform it into a comfortable meal. You can eat it with your choice vegetables like potatoes, celery, onion or chili.

While your roasted pork is being prepared in the camp oven or camping pot you can gather around the fire and talk outback stories and smell the aroma of this tender and juicy meat.

8. At this point we worked out that our dutch oven is too small to fit all veggies and ham, so we moved to a bigger size pot.

9. Roast the pork and veggies together for another 30 minutes.

The good thing about preparing the roasted port is that if you don’t eat it all for dinner you can cut the meat into slices the next day, prepare sandwiches and take it for your hiking.
