Lemon Herb Steak and Asparagus – Tin Foil Dinner

It was time to take camp food up a notch. I had never cooked steak at camp before, let alone over a fire. It proved to be both easy and delicious. So go for it.

Ingredients (for mother and daughter):

  • 2 Thin cut steaks
  • 1/4 Lemon
  • 4 Sprigs dried rosemary (or 1 fresh sprig)
  • Dried Thyme
  • Salt (Kosher) & Pepper
  • Butter
  • Olive oil
  • 2 Sheets of tin foil  (Size as required)
  • 8 Asparagus stalks



  1. Stoke the coals in your campfire.
  2. Coat tin foil with olive oil and dab with butter.
  3. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper.
  4. Place the steaks in the center of the foil. Sprinkle with thyme, add the rosemary sprigs and a slice of fresh lemon to each steak.
  5. Place fresh vegetables to the steak. Dot with more butter.
  6. Cover with the second piece of foil over the top. Seal each side of the foil shut. Put the packet in the coals for 8-10 minutes (or until it cooked to your liking). Flip it over halfway through cooking. Let stand for a couple of minutes before opening. Be careful of hot juices.
