Beef and Beans Tin Foil Dinner

If you've reading any of my camping posts then you know that I LOVE grilling and eating Tin Foil dinners! The best part about making Tin Foil dinners is that you can throw just about anything in the foil packet & grill it.  This time we decided to experiment with adding beans to the mix!  It turned out amazingly delicious! There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
  • 1 lbs of Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp of Plan Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Can of Pork and Beans
  • Cooking Spray
  • A pinch of your Seasoning of Choice
  • Aluminum Foil
  • Get your charcoal going so that it's ready for the foil packets. You want to make sure to wait until the charcoal is just right before you start cooking.
  • Get out two large sheets of aluminum foil and spray them with cooking spray.
  • Mix the meat with the bread crumbs and seasoning. 
  • Make two round-ish patties out of the mixture and place them on the aluminum foil.
  • Open up the can of pork and beans then pour half of the can on each beef patty. 
  • Chop up your veggies into nice slices. Before each camping trip, we prepare by chopping the veggies and placing them in pyrex containers. It saves time & it means that I don't have to bring extra utensils to the campsite with me!
  •  Throw your veggies on top of the beef patty and pork & beans.

  •  Fold the aluminum foil into nice square packets.  Be sure to leave space on each side for the food to spread out a bit.
  •  Throw those packets on the grill and wait 25-30 minutes depending on how done that you like your meat. Cut the middle of the beef and you'll know when it's ready when it's reached your desired "pinkness."
  •  Unfold, grab a fork and dig in!
 Look at that happy husband!  All from a delicious meal :D
