Having raised 6 kids we have had our share of camp site cooking. We have never owned a camp stove so we always have cooked on the fire till we purchased or trailer.
With our kids grown its time for us two to enjoy the fire for 2 !!
We still enjoy the campfire cooking.
When selecting the food we enjoy shopping at local farmers markets and local shops. Fresh is best !!
One of our favorites is simple and good.
This is for two:
2 small Filet Mignon's (3/4 lb total)
1/2 lb of Sea Scollops ( we are near the ocean so local markets are great)
Small bunch of Asparagus
1 or 2 Sweet Potatoes ( We grow Beauregard's )
Make fire with red hot coals
Wrap spuds in foil and toss in hot coals
Heat cast iron skillet (opinion is to cook steaks on the grill)
Season meat with your favorite rub (we use Stone Wall Kitchen Steak Rub)
Sear meat and then let it cook
Brush the Asparagus with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt
Place on the grill. Turn occasionally as you grill the other food
Prior to starting the meat the wood sticks for the Scollops should soak in water for 20 min or so.
Place Scollops on the wood sticks and then on the grill. Turn them every 3 min.
Once a fork eases thru the spud and the meat is to you liking then time to enjoy.
Squeeze lemon juice on the scollops
Time to enjoy the meal.
