Bogburger Ragout

This bogburger ragout is classic camping food at its best. It's fast, it all goes in one pot and it looks, well, looks aren't important at a time like this.


  • 500 g medium or lean ground beef, (or turkey)

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 796-mL can tomatoes, mashed up in the can

  • 1 540-mL can kidney beans, or Romano beans, drained

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup raw macaroni, (like elbows or shells)

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp chili powder

  • 1 tsp ground cumin, (optional)

  • pinch black pepper, or dash hot pepper sauce


  • In a large skillet brown the ground beef with the chopped onion over a medium fire (ha!) until the onion is softened. Drain off the fat (not into the fire!).

  • Add all the remaining ingredients, stir well to combine and cook, covered, for about 30 minutes or until the pasta is done. Sprinkle with some cheese if you'd like.
