Fast, Camp Corned Beef and Cabbage

I have a fast camp dish for you that can be your "go to dish" the 6th or 7th day out. It is made from caned Corned Beef. Don't turn you nose up. It is vary good. I also fixed a can of sliced new potatoes to go with it. Fast meal and tasted good. I know caned foods have a bad wrap, but it is hard to have fresh meat at camp if you are out for a week or more Give it a try.
I hope you have a great Summer and get a lot of Dutch oven cookin' and camping in.

Fast, Camp corned Beef and Cabbage

1 medium cabbage
4 slices bacon
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes
¼ teaspoon salt
2½ cups water
1 (12-ounce) can corned beef, slced

Wash cabage, and cut into 4 wedges ( do not separate leaves).
Cut bacon in ½-inch peaces and cook in a deep, 12" Dutch oven over 15 to 20 charcoals, until crisp; remove and reserve bacon. Drain off fat reserving 2 to 3 tablespoons. Crumble bacon. Combine cabbage, bacon, red pepper, salt and water in the Dutch oven. Remove some of the charcoals to 8 left under oven. Cover and place 16 to 18 on the led. Cook for 30 minutes. And corned beef, and cook 10 minutes more.
Serves 3 or 4. If its all men in camp, you may need 2 cans of corned beef.

  1. I have to agree, Ron. It would be good. I know some folks abhor canned corned beef, but I like it. Of course fresh is much better, but it's not available, as in camp.

  2. Hay sehr lecker das muss ich unbedingt auch mal machen.
