These campfire cheese steaks make and amazing addition to any camping menu.

As you know, we just returned from a weekend of family camping bliss. I wanted to share with you the absolute best meal of the weekend: Campfire Cheese Steaks. We had people walking by and drooling I cooked these babies up.

Cheese steaks are simple to make and one of our family’s favorite meals. I adapted this to be a simple campfire meal.

Cooking the onions and peppers over the campfire filled our campsite with a mouth-watering aroma that was drawing nearby campers to our site just to see what we were cooking.

These are easy to assemble on site! You could also precook the peppers and onions, but I loved the experience of doing it over the campfire.

    Those look so delicious! I might have to try it even when I’m not camping.

      They are! Cheese steaks are a favorite here anyway, and I was thrilled to be able to adapt it to camping.

    Looks great. I am home this summer due to a newly diagnosed cancer. Your post has me looking forward to small things I can do. Thanks.

      I am so sorry to hear about your cancer. I hope you were able to enjoy the small things this summer.

    How many servings (or sandwiches) is this? I’m potentially feeding 8 so I want to make sure I get enough ingredients (especially the roast beef).

      The recipe has one loaf of garlic bread and 8 oz of beef. I would definitely double that for 8!
