  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!



Great recipe...if cooking in the oven I would place in a pan. My foil leaked! Tasted great..I used hamburger instead!



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!
