Campfire Stew | Gestational Diabetes UK

Campfire Stew gets its name from being a one-pot dish that cooks slowly for a long time on the campfire. Whilst my campfire stew is not cooked above a campfire, it still contains all the flavours of a traditional campfire stew.

Campfire stew is made with a gammon joint, but it is a tomato-based stew that also contains beans and chickpeas (which contain good amounts of protein but are also higher in carbs) meaning it may be a more difficult recipe for some to tolerate. Depending on your tolerance to tomatoes and legumes, feel free to tweak the recipe to suit you, and bear this in mind if serving with another carb such as the sweet baked potato shown here. Adding a serving of full-fat sour cream to this dish helps to pair the carbs.

Campfire Stew
  • 750 grams unsmoked gammon joint
  • 2 medium red onions sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 1 medium red pepper sliced
  • 1 medium yellow pepper sliced
  • 100 grams mushrooms halved
  • 400 grams tinned chopped tomatoes (1 x tin)
  • 400 grams tinned chickpeas (1 x tin) drained & rinsed
  • 420 grams reduced sugar baked beans (1 x tin)
  • 1 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 200 ml cold water
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • 4 lumps frozen spinach
  • Add the onions, garlic, celery, mushrooms, and half of the peppers to the dish. Place the gammon joint on top (ensure to remove any string/netting from the joint)

  • Pour in the chopped tomatoes, drained chickpeas, baked beans, Worcester sauce, cold water, herbs and spices. Place the lid on the dish and cook on high for 6 hours

  • After 5 ½ hours remove the lid. The gammon should be cooked and can be gently pulled apart into shredded pieces. Gently stir the stew then add the frozen spinach and the reserved slices of pepper, then recover to cook for another 30 minutes

  • Stir gently before serving. The campfire stew can be served on it’s own, or add a small serving of carbs which you tolerate well. Add a setving of sour cream to help pair any carbs if needed
