Directions:
Directions:
For Dutch Oven cooking: Make your fire in a pit, get the fire hot and let it burn down to coals. Take your stew meat and brown it in a pan. Take a little oil and pour it in the bottom of your dutch oven. Add the meat and about 2 TBS. of flour. Add your veggies and canned veggies with liquid. Mix it around. Now add your stew mix and chili-o mix. Now add water to cover the stew. If you want it soupy add a little more water. If you want more gravy like just add enough to cover about 1 in. over the stew. Put the Dutch oven and place it over hot coals. Cover with lid and let it cook, checking about every 20 mins or so for doneness. Once it is to the tenderness that you like, it is then ready to serve. If you do this like Grandpa did in the mountains of Strawberry, he added biscuits to the top of the stew, placed it back on the coals, covered the pot with the lid, then added coals to the top of the lid for an oven effect. This should bake for about 8-10 mins. Depending on how hot your coals are. You will need to check this as well.
