Default 1 Night Backcountry Meal Plan

I am going on a one night backpacking trip, and I know there are many creative minds on here food wise. So I was just wondering what some of your ideas are for a dinner meal in the alpine?
All ideas are welcome... I am already thinking steak since the hike is short and not very far at all.
Cheers

Loaf of sourdough bread plus a sausage and a small block of cheese goes amazingly. Bring a knife.

Are you thinking luxury? Costco sells a wicked boil-in-bag roast. Add mashed potatoes, and it's ridiculously decadent. Heavy, yes. We've taken that along with some Port, and had a very enjoyable evening...

Weight is not really a big deal.

It's hard to beat turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, whipped cream, pumpkin pie and rolls then!



Admittedly this was in a hut.

Usually one night requires no food. Just eat all and what you want before you go and take your time. You carry it up either way.

Two nights are a different story though.

I like to bring a small prime rib roast and some nice buns and onions in foil with butter. slow cook the roast over the fire with lots of pepper and carve off the outside into buns as it cooks and add your fried onions.

Sounds realy good, put the OP mentioned cooling in the alpine. I assume no fires...

Oh right sorry. This definitely doesn't translate to a camp stove.
