Couscous with Beef & Tomato
Pack seasoning mix in a 2 x 3 plastic bag and enclose with other ingredients in a 4 x 6 plastic bag.
Alternative packing: Pack the couscous separate from the other ingredients.
Sources to purchase dried meat and vegetables.
On the Trail:
Place all ingredients except seasoning mix in pot with water and soak five minutes. Couscous absorbs more water than other pastas. Be prepared to add a little extra water.
Light stove, bring to boil, and continue cooking for one minute. Add a little water if necessary. Watch to make sure that the couscous doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot and burn.
Alternative trail cooking method: If you pack the couscous separate from the other ingredients, you can bring the meat and vegetables to a boil first and then add the couscous for one minute boiling time. This cooking method makes it less likely that couscous will stick to the bottom of the pot.
Remove pot from stove, stir in seasoning mix, replace lid, and place pot in insulating cozy for ten minutes.
