Directions

Cut beef into 3/4 inch pieces. Cut bacon slices into small pieces. Cut each tomato into quarters. Cut 4 pieces of heavy duty foil large enough for 1 portion of meat and vegetables. on each piece of foil, place 1 portion of the chopped onions, and 1/4 pound of beef on top. Sprinkle with bouillon granules, seasoned salt, salt and pepper and meat tenderizer. Arrange bacon pieces and 4 tomato chunks on top of meat in each pack. Add potato cubes and carrot slices to each pack as desired. Wrap foil in a tent pack around each serving. 1) Preheat oven 350. Place foil packs on a baking sheet and bake for 50 - 60 minutes or until meat is fully cooked. 2) Wrap the packs in another sheet of foil, making a 2 handled pack with the second layer. Bury the foil packs in warm coal and cook for 40 - 50 minutes or until fully cooked and tender. 3) preheat grill to medium heat. Place foil packs on the grill over indirect heat, close the lid and cook for 35 - 45 minutes or until meat is fully cooked and tender. VARIATIONS: 1) To add more moisture and flavor, add a little butter and 1 tablespoon water, worcestershire sauce or soy sauce before sealing the foil pack. 2) Substitute 1 bag of frozen stew vegetables for the fresh vegetables and use an envelope of stew seasoning plus 4 tablespoons of butter to flavor the packs. Omit the bacon. 3) Place all the ingredients into 1 single large foil pack. For a different flavor, start with only the stew meat on a large piece of foil. In a medium bowl,, combine 1 ( 2 ounce ) package dry onion soup mix, 1/2 cup dry red wine or water and 1/2 envelope italian dressing mix. Add 1 ( 9 ounce ) package frozen mixed vegetables and stir. Spoon mixture over the stew meat in the foil, then wrap the foil pack and cook for about 60 minutes. If desired, stir in 1/2 cup sour cream just before serving.
