Moo Shu Tacos Recipe– Easy One Pot RV Meal!

This post may contain affiliate links.

We get asked about the meals we make when we’re on RV trips all the time. Deciding what to cook seems to be a common challenge for RVers–especially those of us in compact RVs with little storage or counter space. This weekend, as James and I were just about to start making these Moo Shu Tacos, another comment came in asking about our RV meals. That’s what prompted me to share this recipe. So if you end up trying this and loving it, you all have Cori S to thank. And shout-out to James, he thought he was just cooking us dinner, and instead had to endure a camera in his face without any advanced warning. Love when he’s cooperative! To see James cook these up, the video is here:



And heads up, if you’re watching on a computer, it might be easier to see the whole video if you click the “Shorts” button at the bottom of the video frame. This is shot in vertical mode, so it’s optimized for people watching on devices.

The recipe follows! If you try it, let me know what you think (comments below!). And if you have a similar recipe, please share!

  • 1 lb ground turkey (or any ground meat you prefer)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (or sesame)
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 cup shredded carrots (make it a big heaping cup)
  • 1 16oz coleslaw mix bag

      Delicious Stef — Thanks for sharing your recipe! We just finished dinner in our EKKO and declared this a “keeper” recipe!! Thanks also to James for his gourmet chef demonstration!

      Great recipe! I already basically make this same thing, but we do it over whole grains and I usually add some frozen peas. I also will use a mix of a bag of cole slaw along with the broccoli slaw. YUM! Thanks for sharing this, I might give the tacos a chance.
