Forget about hamburgers and hot dogs, glamp up your camping trip with campfire steak on a stick.

2 ribeyes on skewers over a campfire

You don’t have to sacrifice quality when you go camping. You can enjoy campfire steak. All you need are a couple of skewers.

I’m a huge fan of ribeye, and rarely go camping without a couple in my cooler. Before it’s marshmallow roasting time, I grab two skewers per steak and slide the seasoned meat right onto the sticks. The sturdier the skewers the better.

And be sure to use two. If you use one, the skewer will spin, but the meat won’t.

Hold the steaks over the flames and cook to your desired doneness. Your campsite neighbors will be totally envious.

Instead of skewers, you can also place a grill grate over your campfire. Place the steaks over direct heat for 5 minutes. Flip; cook for another 5 minutes. Move to the outer edges of the grate for less heat and cook to desired doneness.
