Beef and Vegetables in Peanut Sauce Dutch Oven Camping Recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutesCooking Time: 15 minutes

A delicious, exotic Thai one-pot meal is great for the Dutch oven or a deep skillet. It’s best if all the ingredients are prepared and chopped before starting to cook because, as in the case of most stir-fry dishes, it’s a hot and quick cook time once started- great for camping.

To make this an even more practical camping recipe, you can buy pre-prepared mixed bags of vegetables of your choice in the grocery store. Choose combinations that will work in a quick stir-fry. Or why not pre-prepare your favorite vegetables yourself at home and seal them in a Ziploc bag? Vegetables that have a bit of texture work best, Baby sweetcorn, bell peppers, asparagus, mange tout are all fantastic alternatives to the vegetables in the recipe below.

The Thai people take food seriously and take care to choose local, seasonal ingredients, so choose what is fresh and seasonal to you. It will always taste so much better.

This stir-fry is great served with noodles or boiled rice. Rice noodles are a great addition to your campsite ingredients as they don’t need to be boiled. All you have to do is soak them, fully submerged, in a bowl of hot water for 15 minutes until soft. They’ll work perfectly with this stir-fry.
