Food Container for cooking?

My wife and I frequently will head off on N. Idaho Forest roads exploring and for a sunset dinner on the Coleman stove. Cast Iron Skillet cooking has become my specialty. I'm looking for a way to carry beans, sealed, then heated in the same container and resealed for travel home. Obviously metal with a spill proof lid. Any ideas.

Be careful with Bento boxes. ATK did a review of lunch boxes and the metal ones they tested didn't fare that well.

Maybe just open the can and place on stove- discard any leftovers and no clean up, they’re only beans.

On another thread, someone mentioned soaking beans in a pressure cooker. The seal isn't 100%, but with a little syran wrap over the vents it could be. GSI has a 3qt anodized pressure cooker I am thinking about.

The mention of Bento boxes reminded me of Zebra pots. They are more of a lunch pail but commonly used to cook in. They come with plastic clips to hold the lid, but wire clips are available as well.

If beans were precooked then stored/carried in Thermos style container, would that work?
