A camping recipe from Karen Henton. I made up this recipe while camping at Guntersville Lake Campground, a place my husband and I visit twice a year. I always take my Dutch oven along. We love the beefstew. I keep my Dutch oven greased in between cookings to keep it from rusting. It also maintains a slick interior, and the stew never sticks to the oven.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour, 10 minutes
- 1-2 pounds stew meat
- 6 potatoes, cut into chunks
- 1 cup baby carrots
- 1 cup celery in 1 inch pieces
- 1 onion
- 1 package McCormicks beef stew mix
- 1 package McCormicks beef and herb gravy mix
- salt and pepper, to taste
I use a 6-quart Dutch oven over ready hot coals. Put the beef in enough water to cover the meat, and put the lid on the Dutch oven and cook until the beef is tender. Add potatoes, carrots, celery and onion, and cook until potatoes and carrots are tender. Last put in the gravy mixes and stir until mixed well. You may want to add more water if desired. Simmer for about ten minutes. Take Dutch oven off of coals and serve.
