THE PERFECT COBB
by Margaret Durante
WHAT YOU NEED
1. Cobb Oven
2. A baking dish? Now
this is the interesting part After using the Cobb to roast as they
suggest we found that the food was too dry so we purchased a small non
stick wok from Woolworths supermarket, 28cm across the top with a flat
base of 18 cm & cut off the handle. It fitted
perfectly on top of the heat bead basket, using 6 to 8 beads. The meat
and veggies need to be turned regularly to prevent burning.
3. I use a chicken roll to
roast as there are no bones to have to dispose and more meat for the $
you can use whatever meat you choose. I cut the veggies into pieces
smaller than I would for the traditional oven and roast it as I would at
home using butter, herbs or whatever to flavour the dish.
4. A chicken Roll and
roast veggies usually take about 1 hr to cook and brown nicely, turn the
meat and veggies regularly to prevent burning.
5. After I take out the
meat and veggies I wrap them in foil to keep warm, make the gravy in the
meat juices. While I am serving up the dinner I place the grill back onto
the Cobb and place home bake dinner rolls onto the grill and replace the
lid these will be cooked by the time you serve up.
So I have now cooked a
traditional moist roast dinner with gravy and hot bread rolls in one
Remember to keep the Cobb out of
cold breezy areas as this will reduce the heat in the oven & only use
branded Heat Beads.
