Cooking Steak While Camping

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Our favorite item to cook while camping is steak and this is my favorite recipe when cooking over the campfire. It's simple to prepare and always comes out well.


  • 1 steak per person, cut of your choice (ours is sirloin)
  • pinch lemon pepper
  • pinch garlic
  • pinch black pepper


With a very hot bed of coals (no or very little flame), lay your seasoned steaks on the grill. Let it cook until the bottom is almost golden, turn, and do the same to the other side. Watch your steak, don't burn it. The trick is to not salt before cooking because this draws moisture to the surface. A dry steak is not good. Turn as many times as necessary to keep from burning until done to your taste. By cooking the outside fast, the juice is sealed in. By turning, you keep from burning the outside until the meat is done to your taste. Oh so good. Enjoy.

Servings: as needed
