Best One-Pot Meals To Cook on a Wood Stove (In a Yurt)?

Good Questions

Q: Hi Kitchn! Here's a challenge I have to meet soon: I've rented a yurt with a bunch of friends, and we are skiing almost 5 miles up to it. We'll have a wood stove, and that's it.

What meal can I make on a stovetop with irregular heat for people who will be very hungry? I'd prefer a one-pot meal. We'll be melting snow for water — maybe a jambalaya? Thanks!
