Steak and Baked Potatoes

New Twists on an Old Favorite!

Some people celebrate (or mourn) Labor Day as the unofficial end of summer. I like to celebrate it as the kickoff to a great fall season of camping and cookouts! Food just tastes better outdoors. Right?

And, it’s just much more fun to cook in the outdoor kitchen. You can cook over an open campfire, use a Dutch oven, fire up the propane stove, or break out the charcoal or propane grill.

For Labor Day, though, nothing sounds better than good ol’ beef steaks and baked potatoes, but I’m thinking it may be time to try a new twist on an old favorite.

These recipes looked especially good. If you try ‘em, let us know what you think!

Try Grilling your Prime Rib

I’ve tried Michael Chiarello’s recipes many times with good success. This one looks pretty easy. Make a paste and let the grill do the work!

Try a New Marinade

This one’s a recipe from T-Bone Tom’s in Kemah, Texas. It gets 5-star reviews. Note that it looks like you’ll only need about half this recipe.

Try a New Dry Rub

This one’s courtesy of the Taste of South Texas Bar-B-Que Team in Van Vleck, Texas and gets 4-star reviews.

Add some Twice Baked Potatoes

This one’s a simple recipe you can count on.

How about a Baked Potato Salad?

Guy Fieri can always be counted on to offer those “new twists!” Be sure to scroll down and make a note of the culinary team’s update on the recipe.

Spicy Baked Potatoes

Here’s another Guy Fieri fave with some jalapenos for heat!

I’m thinking I should go for a walk, now. I probably just gained five pounds reading these yummy recipes!

Happy Labor Day, and happy camping, everyone!
