Hi Jay,
Is it German food in particular that your interested in? What is a re actment do?
If there is no oven I take it they will be cold dishes?
Once I have a bit of a better understanding of what it is you're lokking for I'll have a look in my books and post some ideas!!

Hi Jay,

That sounds fun!!

Here are a couple of simple 'one-pot' recipes that can easily be made in a field kitchen...

Sausage & Tomato Hotpot

2 tablespoons oil
225g/8oz coarse textured pure pork sausage, peeled and cut into chunks (you could subsitute for any German sausage you think would work)
2 onions, chopped finely
4 carrots, sliced thickly
6 potatoes, cut into chunks
2 large garlic cloves, very finely chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme or oregano
1.2kg/2lb 10oz canned chopped tomatoes
Salt and pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, to garnish

Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add sausage and fry until browned. Remove from pan and set aside.
Reduce heat to medium, add onions, carrots, potatoes, garlic, rosemary, and thyme to the pan. Cover and cook gently for 10 minutes.
Return sausage to pan, pour in the tomatoes and bring to the boil. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer over a medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
Sprinkle with parsley just before serving.

Yum yum!

Those quantities of ingredients are to serve 4 but they can be doubled, tripled, quadrupled depending on how many hungry men you are feeding, and can all be cooked in one big pot!!

I'm going to post these separately because I'm on my iPod and if they disappear before I've submitted them I'll most likely throw a tantrum! LOL

Chicken, Sausage & Bean Stew

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
225g/8oz sausage, cut into large chunks
4 frankfurter sausages, halved
1 onion, chopped finely
3 carrots, sliced finely
1 garlic clove, chopped very finely
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes
400g/14 oz canned chopped tomatoes
400g/14 oz canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
150ml/5 fl oz chicken stock
Salt and pepper
Chopped fresh flat leaf parsley to garnish.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy based saucepan over a medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, pork sausage, and frankfurters until lightly browned. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and carrots. Cook for 5 minutes or until soft.
Stir in the garlic, thyme, and chilli flakes. Cook for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes, beans and chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, then simmer over a low heat for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Garnish with parsley just before serving.

Serves four but can be altered as above :)
