Earlier this week I was surfing the Internet looking for unique cooking items, when I ran across the Ogallala Cream Can Supper Company. Long Story - Short - mine got here on Friday! After checking out their website and talking to the guys in Ogallala Nebraska, I had to have one. I got is the 2-1/2 gallon can that feeds 8-10 people, but their is a family size on and 2 other larger ones that feed large groups.
Here are 5 of my favorite things about the Ogallala Cream Can
1. It's easy - anyone can use this!
2. Everything was cooked perfect!
3. You can have a full home cooked meal in one pot
4. It took under an hour start to finish
5. Easy clean up
I will share with you how I did made it, but I will also include the link to their website so you can watch their 3 minute video!
1- head of cabbage
4 - ears of corn
1 - pound of carrots
1 - stalk of celery
1 - pound of Yukon gold potatoes
3 - yellow zucchini
2 - bell peppers
1 - pound of yams
2 - small broccoli sprigs
2 - yellow onions
1 - ring of smoked beef sausage
1 - ring of smoked polish kielbasa
1 - pound of natural casing wieners
12 ounces of beer
12 ounces of water
CUTTING PREP WORK
Slice the cabbage into thick patties
Peel the yams and onion and cut into large chunks
Cut your corn in halves
Leave the skin on the Yukon Gold potatoes and cut into large chunks
Cut up all other veggies into large chunks
Cut natural casing wieners in half
Cut Sausage into 2" pieces
ORDER TO PUT IN TO POT
NOTE:*** You need to put something in the bottom of the pot to keep the food off of the bottom, I used 3 canning lid rings!
1 - the cabbage patties
2 - the corn
3 - mix all the rest of your veggies in
4 - top with your sausage
5 - pour 12 ounces of beer in the pot
6 - pour 12 ounces of water in the pot
This will fill this pot but make sure your steam vent at the top center of the pot is not blocked.
Place pot on range burner
Turn burner on high
****NOTE: read and follow all safety instructions that come with this product****
Watch the vent - Once you see steam coming out the vent, set timer for 30 minutes
After it has cooked for 30 minutes remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes
Then carefully empty contents of the pot into a large serving dish
Remove the canning rings with tongs
We had family over to share this meal and everyone from 6 to 60 years old LOVED IT!
NOTE: I did NOT use salt and pepper and any other seasoning during or after cooking!
NOTE: Other than a little butter on the corn we added nothing to our plates!
This cooker took all the natural flavors in the food and blended them perfectly with out the aid of any seasoning! This is a great healthy family meal with awesome taste! I really look forward to using this summer and next fall, when we can go to the Farmers Market and get really fresh veggies!
If you are looking for a great Christmas Gift this is a great idea, your avid cooks will appreciate what it can do and the people you know that can't cook - will be thrill to finally be able to make a great home cooked meal.
You still have time before Christmas - so give the guys at the Ogallala Cream Can Supper Company a jingle and get yours before Christmas!
