Here’s another great camping recipe … campfire beef and potatoes. You can make this dish at home in the oven if desired, but there’s just something about putting a cast iron dutch oven in the campfire. The fire just adds something to the whole meal and evening. Campfires are relaxing! I hope you take a camping trip and try out one of camping recipes. Maybe you’ll even try campfire beef and potatoes!

Ingredients

2 pounds ground beef

6-8 medium potatoes, cut into small cubes

1 medium onion, chopped

olive oil (about 1 tablespoon to saute onions)

1 quart beef broth

1/4 cup Better Batter gluten free flour

seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, or other spices to taste)

1/2 pound grated cheese (I like to use cheddar or a cheddar-jack blend.)

Directions

  1. Build a campfire so that you will have a bed of hot coals on which to place your dutch oven.
  2. Saute onions and potatoes in about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron dutch oven.
  3. After about 5 minutes, add ground beef to the onions and potatoes and brown.
  4. Season the dish with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and cumin (or other desired spices).
  5. In a small bowl, mix flour and about 1/2 cup beef broth.
  6. Add beef broth to the dutch oven and bring to a boil.
  7. Stir in the flour-broth mixture.
  8. Place lid on dutch oven.
  9. Place dutch oven in campfire with 6-8 hot coals on top of the lid of the dutch oven.
  10. Cook for 30 minutes.  Check potatoes for doneness and dish for seasoning.  Add more seasoning as needed and return to fire if potatoes are not done.
  11. Spread shredded cheese over the top and serve.  (I made the mistake of putting the cheese in too early, and it all melted into the sauce!)
