A One Pot Meal- Kielbasa and Vegetables

Fall is Iowa's Best Season

Camping this weekend sure was enjoyable.  The leaves were beautiful, the weather was perfect, and the food was tasty.
We arrived at the campground late in the afternoon on Friday.  Since we still had to set-up camp and cook supper, we decided on a recipe that was easy to throw together and get cooking while we did some of the other set-up work.

Once we got there, I pulled out the cutting board and started slicing up the kielbasa.  Next came the veggies.  Doesn't it look so pretty stirred up in the Dutch oven?

Add some garlic salt and oil and its ready to get cooking over the hot coals.  Next time we'll try this recipe with a different type of meat- cubed ham maybe? 

Camper's One Pot Meal
12" deep dutch oven
19 on top, 10 on bottom (a regular depth DO would require fewer coals)

2 packages pre-cooked kielbasa, sliced into 1/2" thick rounds
2 red onions, cut into large chunks
2 bell peppers (we used yellow & orange), cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1-pound package baby carrots
3 large potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons garlic salt
Freshly ground black pepper- to taste

Combine all ingredients in a 12" deep dutch oven (this filled our DO up, so I'm not sure there would be enough space for all the meat and veggies in a regular depth one).  Arrange hot coals on top and bottom and cook for 30 minutes or until veggies are tender and meat heated through.  Half-way through the cooking time, we lifted the lid and gave everything a stir.
