Two passionate Vanlife cooks and the creators of Vanlife Eats.

It was a cold, dreary and rainy evening in the campervan and we wanted something hearty for dinner. Something filling with a little heat (but not too much) and this recipe was the perfect match! A vanlife must try!

With only the need of one skillet pan and one of our favourite cheat ingredients, Jerk Seasoning this was a really simple recipe to put together.

We’ve got some left over for lunch and I cant wait to eat more!
