Campfire Skillet Stew
Recipe type: Game
  • 1 lb moose stew meat (substitute with bison or beef)
  • 1 to 2 tbsp grapeseed oil (or cooking oil of choice)
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 tbsp Cabela’s Roasted Garlic & Beer Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp Cabela’s All-Purpose seasoning
  • 2 medium potatoes, chopped
  • ½ a small onion, chopped
  • 3 carrots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp water
  1. In a 10-inch cast iron skillet, place grapeseed oil and stew meat. (If your skillet has a lid use that to keep your heat more even.) Cook until meat is browned on all sides. Sprinkle flour, all-purpose seasoning and roasted garlic and beer seasoning over meat. Stir until flour and spices begin to coat meat.
  2. Next add in 2 cups of beef broth. Stir to get the browned bits off the bottom of the skillet. Add in vegetables. Add in as much of the remaining beef broth as possible.
  3. Simmer for about 45 minutes. In a small container stir or shake the cornstarch and water together. Pour into the skillet and stir. Let simmer another 15 minutes or until liquid thickens into a gravy-type sauce.
When cooking over an open fire, make sure you have a good bed of coal; this is where your best heat comes from. If you want to cook this in a barbecue, set your burners on low and try to keep the heat around 250 degrees Celsius.
