A hearty, warming stew that’s perfect for dishing up on a chilly evening, this Campfire Stew uses gammon.

If you’re looking to reduce your meat consumption, try our Vegan Campfire Stew with an ingredient that may surprise you.

It’s substantial enough to eat as it is, but if you’d prefer to add a side, it goes really well with crispy Roast Potatoes!
