Camping Cooking - Onion Swiss Steak

This Dutch oven camping recipe cooks for several hours in a Dutch oven, leaving you time to spend with the family hiking, biking, or simply hanging around the campsite. After all, there are better things to do when you go camping than to spend all your time cooking! For this Onion Swiss Steak you'll need:

  • 3 lb. round steak, 3/4" thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 packages onion soup mix
  • 2 cans (10 oz) tomatoes
