I have 2 go-to recipes. The easy way, is let the steak warm up a little, smear some olive oil and montreal steak seasoning. Grill to the temperature you like ( really hot grill works best)

Option 2, Take fresh rosemary and chop it up with some minced garlic. Mix it with some olive oil. spread it over the steak and let it soak in for an 30 minutes or so. Grill as above

Slow:

Try cutting some green willow sticks and throw on your coals. Three or four about 10" long and maybe a 1/2" in diameter. Put your steaks on after they start smoking.

You'll end up with a barbecued but smoked flavor of steak. 8) :thumbsup:

Seared over as hot bed of coals (600 degrees plus in Komodo) for enough time for mayard reaction. For a good start size steak (1.5 inch) about 4 minutes each side. Plus more minus. Let rest for 6-10 minutes. Top with a little a1 and it's done.

Warm up to blood temperature (very important for anything from rare to medium imho)
Season and oil...add garlic and herbs ect if you want,
Then either.
1. Cook in a cast pan or on a grill hot as it will go 3/4s done one side then briefly the otherside.
2. If youve got a covered bbq then indirect until around 125f then sear one side only over direct heat for colour then rest for 5 mins.
That should give you perfect medium rare.

best way to do steaks while camping.

Postby aggie79 » Sun Apr 24, 2016 10:29 pm

I like the reverse sear method. Season meet with black and white. Place On the smoker - with hardwood charcoal and hickory or pecan chunks - at 225-250 and cook to 20 degrees below desired temp. Sear about a minute total on both sides on kamado at 600+ degrees. Add a little garlic butter and let rest in a tent for 5-10 minutes.

My wife is winning me over a bit with that method, only instead of Komodo to use water...Sous vide. I wasn't even remotely interested until we went to a "resort hotel" (Vinnoy in Tampa) where they made scrambled eggs with Sous vide....my goodness.

That doesn't fall into "camp cooking" in my opinion though. Part of camping is reenforcing "water discipline" and using minimalist tools and techniques.

The gas grill is always packed and riding on the tongue.

I keep a small grate from an old grill, about 9 inches by nine inches, in my tongue box and a couple of disposable aluminum casserole pans. Start the coals in the pan and put the grate on top. We then just throw away the pan when done.

now your talking bruce summer time yes sir! home grown veggys and a good steak! one thing if doing a lamp chop. don't get her all done than head to the table and let her slip off on the ground! that's frustrating after hard work on a grill. I once done a well done set of rib steaks on a blue coleman skillet in camp in the wind rivers............it worked good or the blue coleman propane skillet. my cooking camp weapon of choice............this year the small gas grill is riding along as I am getting hot and heavey into grilling. keep the steak recipes coming flks. :applause: well done! slowcowboy

Don't make things so difficult...

You know that fire you always make when you go camping? Just throw the steak over that fire... Turns out wonderful!!!

For example...

Reverse sear is the best way to go, but I don't have the hardware when I go camping to do that... :cry:

Fire grilled are the all time best. Sprinkle with a little Kosher salt and black pepper. When they are done to your liking tent loosely with foil for 5 to 10 minutes. This will allow the juices to to be reabsorbed in the meat. Hit it with a knob of butter just before you serve. If you cant afford a good steak completely cover the top of the meat with kosher salt. Let it sit at room temperature an hour for each inch of the steaks thickness ie 1 hour for a 1 inch thick steak. Rinse the steak off with water, pat dry and lay it on the fire. When the salt is gone you will see holes in the top of the steak. That is a sign that the meat fibers are breaking down.
