Here are our favorite easy dutch oven camping recipes.
A dutch oven is a heavy cast iron pot with a fitting lid.
It is perfect for slow cooking such as roasts, stews and cakes (yes,
cakes). We use the dutch oven for cooking at "standing camps", that is
camps where we drive in, set up camp and settle in.
A dutch oven is not convenient for camps when you're hiking to different camp sites each day.
For camping, it is best to get the large dutch oven,
generally the 7 or 9 quarts size. While you think this is enormous, and
it is, you'll find this large volume comes in handy when you're cooking
for large groups. We've found on camping trips with other families,
families do take turns to cook, so you're generally cooking for between 6
to 8 people.
This equipment is ideal as a variety of different meals can be made in the generously sized pot, and of course, it is good for cooking for large numbers of campers.
This recipe serves 8 persons, but vary the quantity of ingredients to
suit either 2 persons or 20. Naturally, for large numbers of diners,
you will need more than one dutch oven.
This is a one pot meal with the rice cooked with the ground beef and vegetables. It's an ideal recipe for campers.
