One-pot meals make life easier while camping and this beef pot roast is a great choice. Containing meat and vegetables it is both enjoyable to eat and provides the nutrients for active outdoor activities.

Pot roasts get a bad name however this comes from simply placing a roasting joint in a pot with water. Rich flavors can be achieved by searing the meat first, using a beef broth, and adding onions.

The recipe suggests using a chuck roast however any large cut of meat can be sued. If using something like a brisket which has a longer cook time then the vegetables may want to be added part way through the cooking process so they don’t become mushy.
