Ingredients

  • 3 Lbs  Beef Stew Meat
  • 2 Lbs Baby Potatoes
  • 1/2 Lb Baby Carrots
  • Red Onion
  • Celery
  • 2 Cans Beef Broth
  • Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • Johnnys Seasoning Salt
  • Garlic Salt
  • Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. A day or two before going camping or cooking in a container mix your meat in some olive oil and season your meat.  I did a combination seasoning but you can really do any kind.
  2. Refrigerate or keep on ice in the chest cooler until you are ready to cook.  I mixed mine up on a Thursday night and we cooked it at the campsite on Sunday.
  3. When you are ready to cook have your fire ready or your oven ready.
  4. Make sure the inside of your dutch oven is properly oiled, I gave mine a quick wipe down with olive oil again and left some extra in the bottom.
  5. Pour in your beef broth and start to prep your veggies.
  6. I cut my baby potatoes in half and put them in the pot first. I knew they would take the longest to cook and the broth would help them cook faster.
  7. Next, the meat went in on top of the baby potatoes.
  8. Chop up your celery, carrots, and onions up and place on top of the meat.
  9. Place in your fire or in your oven!
  10. Serve and enjoy once your meat is thoroughly cooked and your potatoes are soft!

Recipe Notes

Make sure the inside of your dutch oven is properly oiled, I gave mine a quick wipe down with olive oil again and left some extra in the bottom. 

**The bottom of the dutch oven will be the hottest in the campfire when placed on hot coals*
