One of the most sought after recipes on my site is the Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Foil Packets. More than half a million people (I promise it's true) have been there and many have shared their success in making it. Hobos in a Foil Packet is a recipe that I have made for my growing family for years. It is an excellent meal for camping trips or just those "in a hurry" nights. You can use ground beef or ground turkey and the clean up is a breeze.
1 lb ground beef (or ground turkey)
4 small to medium potatoes
1 onion sliced
Preheat oven to 350. Tear off 4 pieces of foil and spray with Canola Oil Spray. Evenly divide the pound of ground beef or turkey and flatten into a patty on each sheet of foil. Add Salt and pepper to taste. Add slices of onion divided as shown in the picture below. Lightly salt and pepper.
Next add peeled and thinly sliced potato (one per packet) - salt and pepper to taste. Then final layer is the carrot that has been peeled and thinly sliced (one carrot or more per each packet.) Again salt and pepper to taste. Roll up the foil around the meat and vegetables to seal and place on a cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes to an hour. Take out of oven and Puncture the top of the foil to let out the steam on each packet.
1 lb beef stew meat
1 small onion
1 small can mushrooms
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2/3 can milk
1/2 cup flour
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
In bowl mix some salt and pepper with your flour (approximately 1/2 to 1 tsp salt and pepper) amount depends on your taste...I would use less then add extra salt to the mixture in the crock pot in the last few minutes of cooking (to your taste). Dredge your stew meat in the flour and brown on both sides in vegetable oil heated in skillet on stove top. Place the browned beef in the crock pot...
Coarsely chop a small onion and put on the meat, cover with the undrained can of mushrooms. Stir and cover. Turn crock pot on high and cook for 1 hour...
After the first hour, stir the mixture and add can of cream of mushroom soup and 2/3 can of milk. Stir mixture and put crock pot on low and cook for 2-3 hours.
While my main dish was slow cooking, I snapped some fresh green beans and put them in water on the stove with some salt and pepper and 3 slices of bacon and let them cook down until tender. When there was about an hour cooking time left on the beef, I peeled some potatoes and put on to boil for mashed potatoes. Just look at that Crock Pot Kettle Beef Tips...looking pretty dang yummy!
When the potatoes were almost done, baked up a batch of biscuits and sliced a tomato fresh from the Farmer's Market and walah!!! We had a great meal! We put the kettle beef over our mashed potatoes and our biscuits.
