Camper's Stew

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

We love making this whenever we go camping. You could prep it before you leave or prepare it on site like we do.

 

1lb lean ground beef chuck

1 russet potato, sliced into wedges

1 green pepper

1/2 yellow onion

1/2 cup parmesan cheese

2 tsp seasoned salt

3 tbsp butter

 

Make an aluminum foil pouch, spray with cooking spray (this stuff sticks bad if you don't).

Layer beef, potato wedges, pepper and onion and then sprinkle with parm cheese and seasoned salt.

Toss the butter on top and seal the pouch as best as you can.

 

We cook ours right on the fire for about 30 to 40 minutes. Open up, add some ketchup, and you have a great main dish for 2.

 

Any variation ideas?

You could try italian dressing in place of the seasoning salt and a toss in a few cloves of garlic. Just a little could go a long way.

Did something similar with the Scouts, but it had green beans in it too. I was too tired from paddling the canoe, that I slept through dinner and missed it. I heard it was really really good though.

 

Also, A1 steak sauce is a must for that style of cooking. At least for me.

TomatoMustard: Italian dressing would probably be a good idea for a new twist.

 

thetincook: Oh man, I do enjoy some A1 steak sauce. :)

I really like the italian dressing idea, it sounds like it would be a great combo to switch it up with. I like the A1 steak sauce idea too.

Thanks for the easy stew recipe.
