Reviews for Ground Beef Campfire Stew
"Excellent! I substituted red wine for water, added fresh mushrooms, and used the liquid from the canned corn. I also added frozen crushed tomatoes, zucchini & green peppers from my garden. I filled a 5 qt cast iron dutch oven, and cooked it over coals in my fireplace insert for 3 hours."
