Do you know the best part of camping?…..the food! I happen to believe that food tastes a whole lot better when you’re outside cooking up a camping meal. But, nobody wants to break-up the fun to go and cook a meal….groan! So, here’s a couple of easy camping meals that you can prepare that are tasty and most of all, a snap to make and cleanup.
Don’t let the name of this first one throw you, it’s very good!
2 TB cooking oil
1 large onion — chopped
2 garlic cloves — minced
4 large potatoes — peeled and cubed
1 lb smoked sausage — cubed
1 can chopped green chiles — (4 oz)
1 can whole kernel corn - drained
In a Dutch oven, or large cooking pot heat oil. Saute onion and garlic until tender. (I can smell the aroma as I’m writing this!) Add potatoes. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 20 mins. stirring occasionally. Add sausage, cook and stir until potatoes are tender and well browned, about 10 mins. more. Stir in chilies and corn; cook until heated through and serve out of the pot.
Bonus: Leftovers can be put in your breakfast omelet.
I love how the sour cream gives this dish a distinctive taste!
2 tsp butter or margarine
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2-cup sour cream
1/2-cup onion- chopped
1 lb Round steak - cut
1/2 tsp Paprika
Melt butter or margarine in a skillet. Brown the strips of round steak. Add onions and brown. Stir in soup, water, sour cream and paprika. Cover and cook over low heat about 45 minutes, or until meat is tender. Stir frequently. Serve over hot, wide egg noodles or rice.
Simple, easy and good eating. And, the Cleanup is confined to one pot. Try these out this weekend and let me know what you think.
