The line from The Grinch Who Stole Christmas
always stuck with us and when the kids were young we always
called roast beef, roast beast!
This is another one of our favorite Dutch Oven
specialties. This was given to us by our neighbor Ken
Nichols who was a great dutch oven cook. It is simple
but we always have people asking for the recipe.
You can see that I have used a dutch oven liner.
One of the drawbacks of dutch oven cooking is cleaning
them! I found these wonderful liners at Wal Mart in their
camping section. They make cleanup a breeze especially for
messy or sticky dutch oven meals.
We pack our dutch ovens up and head up the canyon just
a few minutes. Our favorite spot is Hope Campground just
up Provo Canyon.

You can also cook this in a covered dutch oven in your oven
at 300 for 3-4 hours or until it shreds. I often cook it in the
oven during the day and then reheat it with coals once we
have arrived at the campground.
This is great served over mashed potatoes, or over crusty bread.
