    Dutch Oven Beer Bread - Super EASY!



    Dutch Oven Beer Bread - Super EASY!

    3 cups self rising flour
    3 tbs sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 cup onion flakes
    1/4 cup dried Italian seasoning
    1 12 0z can/bottle of beer

    Adjust onion flakes and seasoning to taste
    Mix all ingredients (dry stuff first then add beer)
    You will end up with a goopy mess... get your hands real wet before you handle it, it helps.
    Oil the Dutch Oven real good.

    Cook for 35-40 minutes with 6 charcoal briquettes on the bottom and 18-20 briquettes on the top.

    If you want cover the bottom of the dutch with parchment paper first so you can get the bread out easier

    Rotate the dutch and lid separately and opposite directions about every 10 minutes

    Melt some butter on top when finished - let sit for 20 to 30 min before cutting (hard to do)

    If you want to you use you digital thermometer to check when it is done... shoot for 195 to 205 in the middle of the loaf.

      They are indispensable when moving briquettes around.

    Nice loaf... What's the crumb look like? I bake sourdough and ciabatta bread in my Big Green Egg.

      sorry I did not get a pic... I sent this to work with my wife, so I never cut into. This is not a yeast bread, so you can imagine what the crumb looks like... a big biscuit. LOL

      I will make a yeast version sometime and show more.

    Looks good to me. Is that a common thing to put charcoal on top of dutch ovens? I am completely ignorant of anything dutch oven.

      Yes the shape of the lid and feet on the Dutch are made to use coals top and bottom.

      Check this out... pretty cool really. Multi Level cooking... pretty handy.

      You can of course use wood instead of charcoal... I have done that many times.

        Ive seen stacks on You Tube that are like pyramids of Dutch ovens. Really cool. This is also a phenomenal way to make corn bread for a afternoon of BBQ. Great post Smark. I love cast iron cooking.

      Interesting. I might have to look into this. I feel like I've been missing out on something cool all this time....
