Beef Curry Noodle Bowl

Beef Curry Noodle Bowl

Ingredients:
  • ½ cup chopped jerky (regular or peppered)
  • ½ cup dried vegetable mix
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 Tbsp mild curry powder
  • 4 tsp lower sodium beef bouillon
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 6 ounce package chuka soba noodles, crumbled

At home:

Pack everything through the garlic in a sandwich bag. Pack the chuka soba in a second sandwich bag.

In camp:

Add 4 cups water to your pot with the first bag and bring to a boil. Add in the noodles, return to a boil and let simmer gently for 3 minutes. Take off the stove, cover tightly and let sit for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt, if desired.

Serves 2.
Notes:
Chuka soba noodles (also called chow mein noodles) can be found in the Asian section of most grocery stores and look similar to ramen but are not deep fried, in a pinch angel hair can be used or you can use 2 packs of ramen (toss the “flavor” packet).
Dried vegetable mix can be found in bulk sections at natural food stores or use freeze-dried vegetables such as Just Vegetables.
