Campfire Stew Packets


  • stew meat, roast, or steak
  • potatoes
  • carrots
  • onions
  • butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • heavy duty aluminum foil


  1. Cut up meat and vegetables. Make individual foil packets by placing meat and vegetables in center of square of foil.  Add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and a tablespoon of butter. 

  2. Wrap tightly and freeze. I usually double-wrap the packets.

  3. To cook, prepare a good bed of coals on the fire and place foil packets directly on coals. Cooking time will depend on how hot the coals are, so check frequently. Usually takes 20-30 minutes. Remove with tongs.
