Beef Curry Noodle Bowl

Beef Curry Noodle Bowl

  • 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.
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.
