Marinated Steak Skewers

marinated steak skewer recipe

These marinated steak skewers are beyond delicious! This recipe is perfect for making ahead and taking on your next camping trip.

Last summer was my first while following a ketogenic lifestyle.  What I quickly learned was that many of my favorite recipes can easily be converted to keto with a few simple substitutions.  Bar-b-cue and grilling recipes are especially versatile.  That’s why I love these Marinated Steak Skewers!  They are perfect to make ahead for camping and keto compliant.

Preparing camping meals at home, before we head into the great outdoors helps to make our trips more enjoyable and stress free.  Plus I like leaving the mess at home and eliminating most of the clean up when we are camping.

Our camp cooking essentials:

  • A Pie Iron Camp Cooker makes cooking over the open fire super easy.  Check out these 20+ Pie Iron Recipe Ideas for tons of camp cooker inspiration!  Or visit my how to use a pie iron post for tips.
  • Foil Pie Plates make tinfoil packet meals even easier with the sturdy base that they provide. 
  • These Grilling Bags that I recently found are amazing!  Simply add all of your ingredients to the bag at home then throw it on the campfire or grill when camping in the great outdoors.  Avoid the grill bags with plastic windows, they melt.
  • We love these BBQ Cooking Gloves because they make handling campfire food a whole lot safer!

These skewers require only a few delicious ingredients.  Steak, mushrooms and onions are all keto friendly foods.  The marinade that I use is also keto but I have included instructions for anyone not following a low carb lifestyle. 

I used Coconut Aminos in this recipe but Soy Sauce can easily be substituted.  I also use Stevia instead of white sugar or honey but you can totally use your sweetener of choice.

How to make these marinated steak skewers:

  1. Cut the onion and steak into cubes and thread alternatingly onto the bamboo skewers with mushrooms.

2. Place the skewers into a large freezer safe plastic bag and cover with remaining ingredients.  Freeze for up to three months or until ready to use.

3. Defrost the skewers and grill for about 10 minutes or until steak is cooked to your liking.  Pair with my absolute favorite Cauliflower Salad for the perfect camping combination!

Tips for making Camping Freezer Meals:

  • Use 1 gallon, large freezer bags.  Label bags with the date, recipe and cooking instructions
  • Lay ingredients flat in the bag for easier storage in the freezer.
  • Defrost meals in the refrigerator and place into tinfoil packet for cooking or onto bar-b-cue.
  • Store meals for up to three months in the freezer.

Tips for camping meal preparation:

  • Prepare meals in advance at home whenever possible.  Leave most of the mess at home where running water is more accessible and clean up is easier.  Trust me on this one!
  • Create “one pot” family style meals for quick dinners that don’t require a lot of thought. 
  • Use tinfoil packets, foil pie pans or camp cookers. These tools help to make clean up a breeze!
  • Pack ingredients in 1 gallon size freezer bags for flexible storage in small fridges and coolers.
  • Plan meals that use similar ingredients to help make packing and planning easy.  These Cheesy Vegetable Campfire Dip, Loaded Campfire Potatoes and Tinfoil Packet Nacho Dip recipes are some of our favorites.
  • Use my blank printable meal plan or camping meal plans to help organize your next trip.

Our camping food tips:

Follow these tips to make sure that you have the right variety of foods packed for your next trip.

1.Use fresh food first.

Fresh foods like meats, fruit and vegetables should be eaten at the beginning of your trip.  Don’t make the mistake of reserving these items as they are more likely to spoil, wasting money and leaving you with less food to consume.  These foods have been know to go off during our camping trips so it’s best to eat them first.

2. Use frozen foods next.

Frozen foods are great for packing while camping.  They can be used as additional ice packs in coolers and consumed at a later date as they defrost.  Meals should stay in the cooler or refrigerator until ready to be eaten.  Be especially mindful of frozen meats that can spoil easily.  It’s best to eat fresh and frozen foods before moving on to non-perishable items.

3. Finally, use non-perishable items.

Once the fresh and frozen foods that you have packed are eaten, start to use up your non-perishable items.  Non-perishables can include things like: crackers, popcorn, rice, pasta and canned goods.

4. Keep snacks on hand.

Packing a wide variety of snacks is always a good idea.  Depending on the activities that you are doing while camping, you may need the extra calorie consumption.  Or if your other foods spoil, you have something else to rely on.  We like to pack: sunflower seeds, nuts, protein bars and beef jerky.
