I figure it's time for me to start contributing more than silly attempts at humor. While I don't have enough trucker knowledge to really contribute there, I do, however, know how to cook! I'm just starting out, so my appliances and whatnot is rather limited right now, but that won't stop Tastebuds from whipping up something good to eat!

Equipment I used: small cutting board, sharp knife, electric skillet, and a cooking spoon.

Food to buy:

Beef meat. I bought a pound and a half package of beef stew meat. I don't normally use this at the house, but for sanitation reasons and the sake of simplicity, I used them here.

Sour cream. I bought an 8oz cup.

Parsley. I bought a tube of already chopped parsley because I don't have the means of washing them properly.

Mushrooms, chopped. I like portabella mushrooms but you can use whatever you want, even canned mushrooms are useable.

Noodles. I like using No Yokes, but any bag of wide egg noodles will do.

Salt and pepper, duh!

Water.

What to do:

Heat up the skillet as high as your inverter or tolerance for grease splatter will allow. You can use some cooking oil here, if you want. Season meat with salt and pepper to taste. Brown the meat to a dark brown color. I took out a few pieces at a time and eventually cut them all into smaller pieces to aid in tenderizing and stuffing in my mouth later. Add mushrooms.

Once the meat is browned enough, add enough water to cover the meat, cover with the lid, and lower the heat to simmer. As the water cook's out, check tenderness and continue adding water and simmering until desired tenderness is reached.

Add water one more time and let it heat up. Add as much uncooked noodles as your skillet can hold. Cook until noodles are done and the noodle meat mixture is not too watery. Turn off skillet, then add parsley and sour cream. Let mixture sit for about 5 minutes or until the savage in you demands to be fed.

Bon appetit!

Is crockpot a feasible option?

Crockpots are feasible to a point. I have crockpots. I have learned you want to have 2 if doing beef dishes. 1 for meat and 1 for other stuff. Doing it all in 1 you end up with a lot of grease. So cook the meat in 1 and everything else in the other. Add meat to the 'other' once the meat is cooked. A slotted spoon works.

I wouldn't use the crockpot exclusively. Once you brown the meat in a skillet you could probably use the crockpot to finish cooking it. I wouldn't do it simply because I try to dirty as few dishes as possible while on the road UNLESS I have PLENTY of time and nothing else to do but clean dishes!

To avoid the skillet, why not use the (Hormel?) Precooked beef tips?

I like browning my own meat, so raw is the way to go for me. But feel free to change it to fit your needs and tastes!
