Cooking Outside

One of my favorite things to do with my friends and family is camp!  Of course, we are all spectacular cooks, but I absolutely rule when it comes to cooking outside!



This first camping trip, I grilled a pork shoulder, roasted some sweet and spicy peppers and onions, and voila’, a delicious Pork Verde’.

There were plenty of second helpings, but absolutely no leftovers!



Gather up your tent and your iron kettles, and try making this delicious Taste of Home recipe out on the open fire!
