Recipe: Cashew Beef Curry

Boil-in-the-bag rice and beef jerky make this recipe a snap.

(Serves 2-3)
1 bag Boil-in-bag Brown rice
1 cup shredded beef jerky
1/2 cup chopped cashews
3 tbsp. Curry powder
1 tsp. course salt
1/2 c. dry milk
3 ounces pepper jack cheese

At Home: combine curry, salt and milk in a zip-top bag.

At Camp: Cook rice as directed on the package. As water begins to boil, add jerky to pot. Meanwhile, shred or finely dice the cheese. When rice is cooked, remove the bag and the softened jerky pieces, drain all but about 1/2 cup of the liquid. Add curry mixture and stir to form a thick sauce. Slit the rice bag open and add rice to the pot, along with the cashews, jerky and cheese. Toss to combine.
