Simmered Recipe Ideas

Simmering is a very popular way of cooking outdoors as it is very tolerant of the fire fluctuations yet does not impact the flavor and doneness of the recipe being cooked.

Boiling is included in this section as although something is often ‘brought to the boil’ very few things are actually cooked in this method, rather the dish once boiling then being reduced to a simmer to actually cook.

There are also a lot of ways to cook this method, hanging over a fire, in a fire, on BBQ grates, on a gas stove, and similar. Just as long as there is enough heat to bring the fluids to a slow simmer.
