Hobo stew…in my mind it’s the perfect meal for camping out…
- Everyone can personalize their meal before the trip.
- It’s a whole meal in one ball of aluminum foil, so their’s less to carry in.
- You don’t need a bunch of equipment or fancy dishes to make it.
- It’s yummy!
- And it’s very cheap!
First gather any and all veggies that you think will taste good in hobo stew (we had onion, garlic, cabbage, carrots, celery and potatoes).
Chop the veggies up, the smaller the pieces the quicker they’ll cook.
Grab some hamburger meat and mix it up with Worcestershire sauce, celery salt, salt, pepper, garlic powder, or whatever sounds good.
Let everyone creat their own ball of food by putting a ball of hamburger meat and various veggies on some aluminum foil, then add extra seasonings, hot sauce or Worcestershire sauce. Wrap the food up in individual balls (I did 2 layers of aluminum foil). You can put the person’s initials on their’s with a sharpie, but once it’s in the fire, you might not be able to tell what letter it is, so when you put them in make sure to take note of who’s is whos.
Cook them in the coals of your camp fire. How long it takes will just depend on how big they are and how hot your coals are.
Once finished you can just open the aluminum foil and eat right out of it like a bowl!
