Ribeye Steak, Couscous, Spinach & Mushrooms

Ribeye Steak cooked on a Trangia Stove

This recipe for ribeye steak with couscous, spinach & mushrooms is all about time-management. Cooking with all three Trangia pans & the kettle, so that everything is ready at the same time.

I find that using a ready-made packet of couscous is quicker, easier and tastier than making it from scratch, although you could make your own couscous instead.

The spinach is not only healthy but super-quick to make, hardly requiring any cooking at all.

Other cuts of steak would also work, fillet, sirloin and bavette steaks are options I have used in the past.

On most camping trips, this is my go-to meal for my first night. Occasionally I’ll swap out the spinach for broccoli or asparagus. Experiment with whatever is in season.
