Foiled Beef Stew

Posted on December 26, 2011 by Mugger

Here is a beef stew recipe that will stick to your ribs and fill up your tummy.  It is easy to prepare, and it won't require a lot of clean up.  When you are done, just throw the foil into the recycle bin.   You can even prepare the meat and vegetables ahead of time, so that all you need to do at the campground is cook it.  How easy is that!

1 pound sirloin (cut in chunks)
4 red potatoes (sliced or cut in chunks)
1 red onion
1-2 c vegetables
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper
3 Tbsp butter

Measure out 2 or 3 sheets of aluminum foil in 2-foot lengths, and layer one on top of the other or use a large aluminum grilling bag.

Layer the meat, potatoes, onion and vegetables on foil.   Add salt and pepper, then dot with butter.

Wrap foil around into a square and seal the edges.  Place aluminum wrapped package on a medium hot grill or away from direct flame in your campfire.

Cook for about 40 minutes, turning once.

I'm always on the lookout for good foil pouch recipes. I've never seen one like this before. Sounds great!
