Hobo Stew

Give each person a 1 lb. coffee can with his or her name on it. Light up the old standby outdoor grill or prepare a hot bed of coals in the fire pit.

For each can you'll need:

2 large ground meat balls
1 med. tomato cubed
1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 cups water
1 tablespoon chopped green pepper
1 tablespoon chopped onion


Brown the meatballs in hot skillet or Dutch Oven. Place them in a 1 lb. coffee can and add all of the ingredients. Cover top of can tightly with foil. Cook on grill or over coals for about 30 min. Serve directly from the can. Remember, the cans will be hot!!! Use oven mitts to remove from the fire.

Heat some rolls, biscuits, or bread sticks wrapped in foil on the grill. Serve hot with butter.

Note: Additional vegetables can be added (green beans, peas, corn, carrots, etc.).
