Tri-Tip Sandwiches (URS: Camping)

Ultimate Recipe Swap

The first time I ever went camping with FishPapa it was a coup de cuisine. His idea was opening a can of chili and cooking it on the fire. Ick. No thanks.

My idea of camping food was marinating chicken breast in a ziploc bag, grating some parmesan, chopping some lettuce, and having Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad al fresco.

(And yes, I could totally relate to Sally [4] when it came to food. Totally.)

However, recent FishFam camping trips have entailed the men heading out for the Great Outdoors and the women staying home to cry over sappy chick flicks. The boys eat chili from cans and the girls, well, the girls enjoy a feast of salads, breads, and other dainty morsels.

However, this last time, the guys decided to take things up a notch. And they came back with food photography to show me. Love those guys getting into the true blogging spirit. Their snaps of “fish and chips” (fried fish and Doritos) and chili dogs were hilarious.

But, while I’m happy to stay home and sob over Heidi with my 4-year old, I wouldn’t have minded a few bites of their tri-tip sandwiches!

Hubs planned ahead, picking up fresh baguettes at the French bakery on their way up the mountain. He packed garlic butter and trimmed tri-tip in the cooler. And then I slipped a packet of homemade spice rub [5] into their camping supplies. Since they already had a great fillet knife and cutting board in their gear, they were good to go. Not pictured: Salsa.

This is a typical grilled sandwich often served on the Central Coast of California, and one that both hubs and I can agree on. You could easily pack a make ahead garlic bread [6] from the freezer to save time.

What do YOU serve on camping trips?
