Family Camp Menu: Friday Dinner

We are going camping! Our church hosts a family camp every summer and the time has once again rolled around. Visions of canoeing, hiking, swimming, fellowshipping with friends around a fire and eating loads of delicious food. Don’t forget the food!! The first day we are arriving in the afternoon, after lunch, so all we need is dinner, drinks and snacks. I’ll put snacks and drinks on their own post since they are their own thing. But for our first meal, I wanted something we could mostly throw together at home so all that would be required is starting a fire and cooking it. Ben and I choose to make an easy side salad with

Grilled Flank Steak with Yogurt Mint Sauce

As found in Campfire Cuisine
Serves 4

  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak

Mix lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper in a large ziplock bag until well combined. Add the steak to the bag, seal and shake to make sure the steak is fully coated with marinade. Place in cooler and marinate at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.

Grill the steak over medium-high heat, 6 to 8 minutes per side, until cooked to the desired doneness. Remove the steak to a cutting board, cover loosely with foil, and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Cut the steak into think slices diagonally across the grain. Serve the sliced steak with a dollop of Yogurt Mint Sauce.

Yogurt Mint Sauce 
Makes about 2 1/2 cups

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and diced.

Mix the yogurt, mint, garlic, olive oil, and salt in a medium bowl or saucepan. Stir the diced cucumber into the yogurt mixture. Serve immediately.
