Dutch Oven Garlic Steak & Cheesy Bacon Potatoes

A few nights ago, we enjoyed a beautifully cool evening. Wanting to take advantage of the weather, we decided to do a campfire cookout. This dinner did not disappoint. Though I was a dutch oven newbie, it was worth the learning curve to enjoy a flavorful, filling dish right before roasting marshmallows. There weren’t any leftovers. 😉

1/2 cup butter, melted
2 teaspoons minced garlic
26 ounces potatoes, washed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
Salt and pepper, to taste
1/3 cup bacon, diced and fried
1/3 cup green onions, sliced
8 ounces steak (porterhouse, sirloin, or ribeye work best)
1 chicken breast
1/4 cup shredded cheddar
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
While your campfire is heating, make the garlic butter by adding 2 teaspoons minced garlic into 1/2 cup butter. In the dutch oven, combine the potatoes and onions (I reserved a few to garnish the top). Pour half the garlic butter over the top, season with salt and pepper to taste, and stir to coat. Slice the steak and chicken into strips (thinner will make well-done steak, thicker will be closer to medium rare). Place meat on top of potato. Drizzle remaining butter over the top, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Scatter cheese, then the bacon, followed by the green onions over the meat and potatoes. Cover the dutch oven with the lid. Place the dutch oven on top of hot coals, cover with hot coals, and bank hot coals around the sides. Cooking time will vary, depending on heat of the coals, but dinner should be served with meat is cooked and potatoes are tender, about 30 to 45 minutes. Dollop with sour cream or more green onions, if desired (and don’t forget to have a s’more afterward!).
