Camping Cuisine – Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms alongside Asparagus and Tomatoes

Camping Cuisine - Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions and Mushrooms alongside Asparagus and TomatoesAnother great camping meal is flank steak and fresh vegetables. Steak is really easy to prepare ahead of time. I marinate the meat in a gallon size zip lock bag, it’s easy to store in the cooler and the clean-up is quick. Fresh vegetables are so delicious and easy to prepare while camping too. They don’t need much – just a bit of salt and pepper. I served the asparagus and tomatoes alongside some rice (topped with crunchy onions) and a flank steak served with sauteed mushrooms and onions. The meal was really good and hearty– perfect after a few games of bocce ball and baseball.

Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions & Mushrooms:

  • Flank steak (click here for recipe)
  • Box of rice, prepared per instructions
  • French’s crunchy onions, warmed until golden
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, sliced thinly
  • Button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

How to Make Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions & Mushrooms

I used my Carne Asada marinade for the flank steak. It’s an amazing marinade that is very versatile and full of flavor!

Prepare rice per instructions. Heat the crunchy onions for a few minutes until golden.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and saute the onions and mushrooms until caramelized and golden brown; add minced garlic, sea salt, and pepper then stir frequently for 45 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside.

Meanwhile, grill flank steak to your liking, then set it aside to rest for at least five minutes before slicing against the grain.
