If you enjoy camping, you probably like finding new recipes for the great outdoors. You want a menu that’s not overly time-intensive, especially during clean-up. So, you can consider recipes like this one that utilize aluminum foil for cooking (no pots or pans required).
Giving your beef steak a figurative bathtub filled with butter makes it so tender and tasty, that you’ll want to make it at home too! There aren’t a lot of folks who have enjoyed their steak this way, made on a fire pit, so it’s sure to be a hit.
You will need a bag of charcoal and one or two pieces of smoking wood (optional). Consider serving with crisped-up broccoli or Brussels sprouts, glazed campfire carrots, cheesy potatoes, or corn. Oh, don’t forget some bread for dipping in all that buttery goodness.
- 6 Sticks unsalted butter (you can use less if you wish)
- 3 Strip Steaks or Beef Flank
- 6 Garlic cloves (smashed)
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- ¼ lemon (chopped)
- Heat up the charcoal and wood until you have proper coals.
- You want the steak to cook somewhat slowly.
- Create an aluminum boat with high sides to contain the butter and enough length for the three steaks.
- Melt the butter in the aluminum.
- Place the steaks down into the melted butter.
- Sprinkle the garlic and lemon evenly over the steaks.
- Put a piece of rosemary between them.
- Using a meat thermometer, watch for an interior temperature of 120 F.
- Remove them from the butter.
- Return the steaks to sear on the campfire for a minute or two.
- You want a nice crust, but this doesn’t take long. Avoid over-cooking.
- Let your steaks rest for 10 minutes.
- Serve as desired.
