Default Favorite camping meals!

So at the post meeting beer time Tim, Stan, Art and I were talking about our favorite camping meals. The middle ground of quick, easy and fancy seemed to be common. I'll kick it off with a couple of my favorites.

I prepackage all this stuff:

Roasted beets. Boil beets for 30 min, peel and slice (like you would an apple) place 1/2 the beet in its own aluminum foil with 2 tbs butter and 1/2 tbs shredded horseradish with a sprig of thyme. Wrap it up loosely. When camping nestle it in the embers to heat 10-15 min. Open enjoy!

Cook a box of macaroni noodles, add a can of chili, top with cheese.

It's not gourmet but it's easy!

The whole premises behind our conversation last night was becoming more elaborate with our meals. I actually enjoy cooking and do most of the meals for my family. This year I want to make a point of trying to get to camp earlier and go beyond basic camp food (burgers/brats)

More unique meals with more fresh ingredients. It makes planning/packing a little more difficult and it's not for every trip, but it adds some new fun to basic camping.

Start using a camp oven. It's easy to make quite good meals easily. We use a 12" and an 8", always looking for a decent 10" to add to the quiver. Those along with our 3-burner Coleman and matching griddle and we can feed an army without too much difficulty. Oh, and a fridge and you're good for a week off grid. Soggy meat, no thanks.

Recipes! I like the camping oven idea, but I'm a campfire cooker as much as possible. Less to bring with me. Here's another recipe:

1lbs Precut pork fillets
Lemon
Lime
Carrots
Green beans
Salt
pepper

Quarter the pork add a wedge of lemon and wedge of lime to each quarter. Cut carrots into rounds and add all ingredients into a foil wrap and salt and pepper to your liking. Place in bright orange embers for 5-8 min and move to slightly orange for 10-15 min.

Yummmmmmmmmm
