Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 1 pound meat (hamburger, chicken, shrimp or beef tips/stew)
- mixed fresh vegetables (potatoes, onion, broccoli, carrots, etc.)
- butter (if meat has no fat)
- salt and pepper, to taste
- heavy duty foil or foil pouches
Layout four foil sheets 12 inches in length, or open 4 foil pouches. Cut meat into bite-sized pieces, or shape hamburger into meat balls. Leave shrimp whole. Add a serving to center of each foil pack. Add chopped vegetables of choice to each. Broccoli cooks easily, so use whole florets. Potatoes and carrots are very hard, so slice into smaller than bite-size pieces. Add butter to chicken or shrimp to ensure the whole thing doesn't stick to the foil. Season and close the bag or fold foil with center seam and ends sealed well. Cook over fire. Can be done directly on coals, but you must turn more frequently. When you can smell them, they're done, about 20 minutes, rotating and turning often with tongs. Remove from heat and allow them to cool on the ground or other safe surface. Open carefully, steam may be hot. Eat from opened foil. All you need is a fork and beverage.
