Hodge-Podge Stew- An Easy Camping or Grilling Recipe

This is a great summer meal that has an easy clean up! It is also great to make while camping in the fire or on the grill. There is so much that you can do to make it to your own tastes that everyone will love it!

Here is what you will need:
Tin foil
Potatoes
Onions
Carrots
Butter
Ground Beef
Seasoning salt

1.) Cube your potatoes.

If I am at home I "pre-cook" them in the microwave. This will cut your cooking time in half! I usually put the cubed potatoes in a microwave safe bowl and cook on high for 2-3 minutes depending on the amount of potatoes.

2.) cut up your carrots into bit size pieces and dice your onion. Place them on a tin foil square.

3.) Add your meat to the tin foil square. I cut mine into smaller pieces to help it cook faster.

4.) add your potatoes (pre-cooked if you are at home- careful they will be hot!)

5.) Add butter and season salt to taste

6.) Wrap up your food into a cute little foil package and put on the grill (or fire) for 20-25 minutes for precooked potatoes, 40-45 minutes for uncooked potatoes.
7.) Open your foil package and eat up! I put mine in a bowl since I was at home but when we are camping I just eat it out of the foil on a paper plate. (just be careful when you open it, hot steam comes out.)

My husband likes his with Ketchup... I like mine with salt.

Clean up? Just throw your tin foil away!
You can add what ever veggies or meat you would like! I think that corn would be really good in here too. (I have not tried other meat so your cooking time might be different.)

I am packing up to go camping today and that is on my menu. We make it with cream of mushroom soup instead of the butter. I like ketchup on mine too.
