Make a Camping Skillet Meal

Janet Groene's
Porky Skillet Stew

Make this in any big skillet, including an electric skillet if you like. Thanks to canned soup it makes its own, creamy gravy.

1 pound boneless, bite-size pork chunks
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon each crumbled rosemary, thyme, salt, pepper, paprika
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 large potatoes, scrubbed and diced
4 medium carrots, peeled and cut up
Large onion, cut in chunks
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
½ cup milk
Put the pork in a plastic bag with the flour and spices and shake until pork pieces are coated. Heat oil and brown pork, shaking off excess flour. Discard bag. Brown pork over high heat in hot oil. Stir vegetables into pork, stirring up brown bits from the bottom of the skillet. In a small bowl, whisk together soup and milk and pour over pork mixture. Cover and cook over low heat 30 to 40 minutes or until meat and vegetables are tender. Check and stir after 20 minutes and add water as necessary if gravy is getting too thick. Serves 4.
