Food tastes better when camping!

Hi All,
Wife and I are camping on the shore of a river, and just finished a wonderful supper. Nothing too special, but boy was it good! As we talked about it we realized that meals always seem to taste better when we are out doors camping.
Just wondering if everyone else finds it the same...or are we just extra happy to be out in the woods?

Cheers!

Agreed. Doesn't matter what the fare, it's always better around a campfire. Bob

I agree with you, it does taste better when camping. Even simple foods are better.

I know everybody loves Smores, and roasting winnies on the fire, or steak and potatoes, but what are some of the other favorites that some of us may not have tried yet? Love to hear your best recipe...

It is the fresh air. Not all that city pollution to cramp your smeller.. Much of the taste of food lies on on the tong but in the nose..

Since you mentioned steak, there's a Teriyaki Sauce you can make up ahead of time to marinade cheap cuts of meat (with good cuts, better yet). The meat will come out pretty tender if you cut a 1/2 to 1 inch thick steak across it's grain in 1/2 inch strips to thread on a skewer.

1 C, Soy Sauce ....1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

1/2 C. Water .......2 tsp. Powdered Ginger

1/2 C. Sugar .......1 tsp. Accent

1/2 tsp. Pepper

Marinade meat strips in a heavy ziploc bag for 3-4 hours in fridge. Thread strips on to wood skewers that have been soaked in water for about a half hour. Grill 'em up for about 3 minutes, flip for 2 more minutes. Don't over cook...


As a side, I'll zap a couple(2 large) Idaho potatoes in the microwave for five minutes and finish them off in the oven or on the grill to crisp up the skins. After they are fork tender, cut in half length ways and spoon out the meat into a large bowl. Add 4 to 6 oz. of sour cream, 1/4 to 1/2 cup of chopped onions and a 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese(don't over mix, rustic blend is best, IMHO). If you have some fresh mushrooms on hand, I've thrown a few of those chopped into the mix as well. Mix all ingredients into the potato meat, salt and pepper to taste and then re-stuff the potato skins(mounding is OK). For a little color, I sprinkle a little paprika on top. Plastic wrap cover and refrigerate until you're ready to reheat on the grill or in the oven.

If you like grilled veggies...doesn't matter which, tossed with a little good olive oil and salt/pepper to taste - man, it doesn't get much better. Bob

We love to eat a lot of different things when out in our MH. OK well maybe we just love to eat! LOL But it does seem to taste better when on the road having fun!

Cola BBQ Ribs
Sweet Cola Barbecue Sauce:
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups ketchup
1 can cola
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1/2 tablespoon ground mustard
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Dry Rub:
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon black pepper
Directions
2 racks pork spare ribs (about 3 pound each)

 
For the sauce:
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat, add oil. Once heated, add the onion and garlic and sauté until tender. Add all the remaining sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for 1 hour 15 minutes.
For the dry rub:
Whisk all dry ingredients together in a small bowl. This can be stored up to 6 months in an airtight container.
For the ribs:
Rinse and dry ribs. Place on a clean cutting board, pull off the membrane and trim the ribs of excess fat. Liberally season both sides of the ribs with rub. Wrap ribs with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 to 12 hours so flavors can permeate.
Preheat grill to 250 degrees F. using hickory and charcoal. Set up your grill for indirect heat.
Place ribs, meatier side down, on the grill away from the coals. Close grill cover. Cook the pork ribs for 1 hour 15 minutes; flipping several times for even cook.
*Coat ribs with Sweet Cola Barbecue Sauce and cook for another 20 minutes.
*Reserve some of the sauce for dipping when the ribs are served.

We have a grill but rarely use it. We like to cook over a wood fire. Yup, definately taste better outdoors. Walking through a full campground and smelling everyones dinner cooking always makes me hungary.

Fresh caught fish, trout in my case cooked over a campfire or even a campstove. The cook top in the coach works great too. They just taste better fresh caught and into the pan with butter. Yummm

Everything taste better camping, I mostly grill,and in the colder months I'll use the oven, it helps warm up the R/V. We went camping the end of March for opening day of Trout in Pa. I made a Ham/Egg bake in the oven for Sat. Breakfast, lunch was Hoagies( provided by my BIL , Sat. Dinner was a 5qt. crock pot of beef stew (3 lbs. beef),and 2 fresh caught Trout (nephew Andrew) and a Venison steak (nephew Blaise) cooked on open fire.
And on Sunday my famous breakfast: eggs, pancakes (reg.& blueberry) bacon, scrapple, corned beef hash, home fries (red) toast, and no complaints or leftovers there were 8 of us camping and on Sun. 2 extra came for breakfast.
