Ingredients & Methods

This braised beef nachos was cooked on the S1 Ozpig using a small camp oven and a wok. This method of cooking the beef allows for a rich meat sauce and frying your own tortilla chips offers a different flavour and texture to the traditional corn chip. Accompany the dish with some simple toppings such as pico de gallo and guacamole and you’ll be set for a truly satisfying meal. This recipe will make 4 generous portions.

Nacho Meat Sauce Ingredients:
2 small/medium brown onions
4 cloves of garlic
Roots and stems of 1 bunch of coriander (washed)
1KG diced beef (topside or chuck are great cuts for this method of cooking)
2L of beef stock
2 tins chopped/diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon sweet or smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1-2 teaspoons chilli flakes
1 tablespoon dry oregano (Mexican if you can find it)
2 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons ground black pepper
30ml vegetable oil

1. Prep the Ozpig for medium high heat. You’ll want to start with a higher temperature for initial sauté of vegetables and beef them allow to die down to and maintain a medium heat for a simmer for the duration of the cook.
2. Dice onion, chop garlic and coriander root and stem.
3. Add oil to the camp oven and bring up to temperature then add the onion, garlic and coriander. Sauté for a few minutes until softened.
4. Add the beef, spices and salt and pepper, mixing thoroughly to coat the meat. Sauté until the meat is browned then allow to cook out for around 20 until the natural juices that have come out of the meat have dissolved.
5. Add the tomatoes and ¾ of the beef stock and mix. Be sure to pick up all the flavours that have stuck to the bottom of the camp oven at this point. Allow the heat to die down to a medium to low heat and bring the sauce to a low simmer.
6. Allow sauce to cook out for 3 to 4 hours, uncovered, stirring occasionally while adding more beef stock or water to maintain a nice wet sauce consistency. Your sauce is ready when the beef starts to fall apart and form a meat sauce similar to a ragout consistency. Adjust your seasoning if needed then place the lid on the oven and reserve on the warming plate for use later.

Tortilla chips Ingredients:
12 10-inch flour tortillas
1.5L vegetable oil

1. Bring the Ozpig up to a high temperature for frying. Some hardwood kindling is best for this.
2. Add the oil to a wok or pot, bring up to deep frying temperature (180°C). If you don’t have a thermometer, you can use a bamboo skewer or chop stick to test the temperature, when dipped into the oil and small bubbles appear, you’re ready to go.
3. Cut the tortillas into triangular chip shapes then fry in small batches not to overload the oil. Allow to fry for about 3-4 minutes per batch, turning the chips to allow to cook on both sides. Your chips are ready when you have a dark golden-brown colour and they are super crunchy.
4. Drain onto paper towel and season with salt. Reserve for later.

Pico De Gallo Ingredients:
3 medium ripe tomatoes
½ medium white onion
1 green jalapeno
Juice of 1 lime
1/3 bunch of coriander leaves
½ teaspoon of salt

1. Finely dice onion, medium dice tomato, chop coriander, slice jalapeno, juice lime.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly and set aside.

Guacamole Ingredients:
2 ripe avocados
1 small ripe tomato
½ small red/Spanish onion
1 red jalapeno
1/3 bunch coriander leaves
Juice of 1 lime
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

1. Peel and deseed avocado, medium dice tomato, finely dice onion, slice jalapeno, chop coriander and juice lemon.
2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash to a coarse paste like consistency. Reserve for later.

Beef Nachos Ingredients:
Nacho sauce
Tortilla chips
Grated tasty cheese/cheddar
Sour cream
Pico de gallo

1. Create a bed of tortilla chips and sprinkle with grated cheese. If you’re up to it or have the equipment on hand, you could melt the cheese either in the oven, oven smoker or a camp oven.
2. Load the cheesy chips with nacho sauce then top with pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream and dig in!
