Directions

  1. On a large square sheet of foil, layer beef, potato cubes, carrots, onion and garlic. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with butter and a tablespoon of water.
  2. Roll edges of tin foil together and seal tightly.
  3. Bury it in campfire coals or put in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). For either cooking method, cooking time is about 1 hour. You can eat it right out of the foil, or empty it into a dish.

Friends loved this when I made it camping! Only thing is that I made them up at home, and stuck them in the cooler so they were ready to pop in the coals after a long day fishing, and used multiple sheets of foil for each one so they didnt leak. Made up a batch of campfire biscuits and the oohs and ahhs kept coming. Thanks for the great recipe Peter!

I love the concept. I even added mushrooms and additional spices as well. But I also found the meal to taste bland. And there was quite a bit of excess liquid, possibly from the mushrooms. And I didn't feel the need to add the tablespoon of water. I was suprised, based on the onions, garlic, and variety of spices I used, how flavorless it tasted. Also, the meat was cooked perfectly but the potatoes and carrots could've used more time - about 10-15 minutes. I'm curious if anyone else ran into the same problem(s).

So easy to make and tastes great! I added frozen corn and peas as well and it turned out fantastic! The best part is...no dishes!

This was an easy after-work recipe. Very tasty. We only missed the gravy. Would have to make that on the side next time, otherwise really great.
