A group huck and I are out here in the force today to show y'all how to cook steak on a rock .
Let's go ahead and get started .
Let's show you what we're working with .
Check out this piece of meat right here , guys , big slab of beef .
Beautiful cut .
That's what we're working with today as well as this beautiful stone right here .
So it's a big old slab of Ry light and that's what we're gonna be cooking our steak on here in just a moment .
So we've got a fireplace over here .
Time to get a fire going , hook a few things up and get that meat on the heat .
All right , our fire is getting started up .
We don't want to throw all the wood in there all at once .
The biggest mishap we can have with this whole process is to heat up our stone too quickly heats up too fast .
It will go ahead and expand and it'll crack the rock and there's still a good chance that the rock cracks anyway .
That's just what you're dealing with when you're trying to cook with primitive tools .
So we'll go ahead and heat this thing up slowly .
This is kind of like a big piece of cast iron , three or four times thicker than cast iron .
So it's going to take a little while to heat it up .
So , be patient .
The fire do what it does .
And if there's any moisture left in this rock , hopefully it evaporates slowly out .
Well , we won this thing up so far .
So good .
Starting to heat up .
It's enough to make maybe toast right now .
No popping , no cracking just yet .
All is , well , I'm gonna add a few more pieces of wood .
Get those coals built up some stuff .
All right .
Coming up on eight or nine minutes .
And that is , that is definitely hot enough to cook an egg down .
Our wood is starting to burn a little cleaner .
You see the smoke starting to dissipate should be another four or five minutes .
We just want to make sure we put a really good sear on the steak .
We don't want to throw it on there till it's time .
All right .
We are mere moments from being ready to throw our steak up here on this rock .
I just like cast iron .
If you got it , use some shortening and we're gonna go ahead and put that here on this rock .
Oh , that's hot .
And that is going to season the rock a little bit and help it out .
Make sure that we don't have some real big issues when it comes to steak .
Sticking let that melt down a little bit .
I imagine it'll probably flame up here in just a moment .
Yeah , a little bit of grease never hurt anybody .
Just sounds good .
Finishing touches a little bit of seasoning .
A little bit of salt .
This is made by three amigos seasoning and it is fantastic stuff .
Some back there as well .
Oh , my goodness .
If y'all could just smell this , this smells phenomenal .
All right .
Well , motor group , there we go .
It's a beautiful sound .
All right .
Coming up on about three minutes .
Let's see how the rock is done .
As you use the rock multiple times .
You'll get used to it .
You'll find out what their heat tolerances are .
How long it takes to put certain things on them .
It's like any other piece of equipment you have in the kitchen .
So , go and see what we got .
His backside .
Oh , that is beautiful .
What do you think the nose is starting to go ?
Oh , beautiful .
You have .
It's ok .
That come on smell .
It caught fire , huh ?
All right .
Our steaks just about cooked a few more things .
I want to go ahead and mention I kind of talked about putting water on the stones for several reasons .
You don't want to do that .
These stones will soak up water once they do , you get a little bit of heat on here , it'll make them blow up but not only does that pose a threat .
Of harming you because exploding hot rocks projectiles is not a good thing , but also it's going to damage your rock so you can break it into multiple pieces and destroy it .
You want to get these rocks as hot as possible and as dry as possible .
Now , if you have an area that has lots of rain and stuff like that , you can have a campfire going for several hours or days where you have so many stones off of the side .
And so the heat that comes out of the campfire can go ahead and slowly dry those stones out safely .
So just a little bit of heat at a time and you'll get there one of the last things I want to mention , and this is a personal pet peeve of mine because I have made some absolutely fantastic fire rings in certain wildernesses and I come back a couple of years later and they have been shattered into a million pieces , using big boulders , beautiful rocks , building something that's a really good tool and everybody's got use out of it .
But if you start a big fire in one of these fire rings and you decide that you have got to put it out that night .
Go ahead and push everything to the center , let the flames go down .
Add a little bit of water .
Give a few minutes , add a little bit more water .
I have people dumping tons of water onto hot rocks that have been soaking up heat for hours and hours and when that water hits those rocks , they all start to fracture .
Some of them explode .
A lot of them just fracture and you give it a few months , a few years and all you're going to be left with is a bunch of gravel and small rocks .
So be considerate .
Think about what you're doing , be safe with fires , but please take care of my fire rings , guys .
Stop throwing cold water on hot rocks .
Ok , please .
Sounds amazing .
Smells amazing .
All right .
It's not exactly bacon .
You smell it , puck up here .
You smell that .
Yeah , there goes the lips .
All right .
So the steak is cooling down .
It smells absolutely fantastic .
Turn around here , bud , you sit down now , I understand .
I think that everybody ought to go out there and at least once in their life , cook a steak on a rock .
It is a fabulous party trick .
It is fun to do .
We can warrior it up .
Have a blast on the counter that I do teach survival .
This is not really caveman technology .
If you're trying to survive , you're going to want to cook your meat slowly and all the way through .
So a steak , you want to go a little rare and enjoy it .
If you're surviving , you want to make it as easy as possible for your guts to break down and get all the nutrients you can on top of that .
A lot of the wild food out there has worms or parasites or things that are really , really not conducive to making you feel good .
So you want to make sure that you're cooking your meat all the way through so that you kill those things and remove that risk .
So with that being said , do you think he's being patient ?
Let's go ahead and cut into this and see what we got .
That piece of meat just comes right off , right .
You get that piece .
I get this piece .
You want this ?
It ain't bacon but he'll eat a good steak .
Oh , that's fantastic .
So how do I like my steak ?
I like it medium rare to rare .
What I've got to deal with these days ?
I hope y'all can see that guys looks good .
It's got some good char on it , but it's also tender a little bit of blood in there .
I can't see .
Well , so those of you that watch the channel , y'all know that I'm blind .
The right eye is dead .
The left eye barely works .
So , uh , I can't cook eggs in a white pan anymore and I can't figure out how done my steak is .
If y'all have any tips for that , I can't tell I can't see very well .
It's just a guess these days because I just do not have the eyesight to make it work .
Spoiled dog .
So guys , if you like stuff like this .
I have a whole lot more videos planned up .
I have a lot more that I want to show y'all survival as well as you're just regular camping .
Good time stuff .
So keep tuned .
Watch our channel .
This is Bob Hanser channel right now .
The side channel is barely survival .
So if you want more updates or more likely you just want to watch Huck .
That's where you're going to see more of that .
I am gonna go ahead and take this back to camp and let my beautiful wife Shawna eat on it a little bit because otherwise y'all are going to sit there and just wreck me over the coals in the comment section and I imagine she'd probably whip my tail too .
So big piece of meat plenty there and it was cooked fantastically well .
So call it luck or call it skill .
It came out if y'all have any more tricks or tips on how to cook your steak , go ahead and throw them in the comment section .
This place is all about learning and I want to learn everything that I can .
Thank y'all for watching Patreons .
Y'all are absolutely fantastic and amazing .
Thank you for supporting these things .
You can never go wrong with a beautifully cooked steak with some roasted potatoes and some asparagus on that side guys .
This is so delicious and so easy to make and I'm about to show you how it's done .
So let's get started .
Alright guys .
So these are the ingredients that we will be working with today .
Don't worry , everything will be down in the description box .
So to begin , we're gonna start with our vegetables .
We're gonna get this asparagus all prepped up ready to go as well as these baby potatoes .
I'm just cutting off the bottom end of these bad boys just like .
So of course everything here is already rinsed and cleaned up .
I'm also gonna slice up these potatoes as well .
All right .
Last note .
Now , a few folks have asked me as to whether I put fires out or not when I'm done with them , it's different if you're just going to spend the evening and watch the coals .
But I always put out fires no matter what .
Uh , most of the time I'm back in the desert , the desert mountains .
And even though there isn't a whole lot of firewood back there , the chance of starting a wildfire always exists , especially when the grasses come up .
Some years , you want to make sure that you keep your fires small or at least make sure that they are suited towards your purpose .
You don't want a giant bonfire to try and cook your steaks or to cook over at all .
So be conscious about that , make sure that you are using your resources wisely and not ruining it for everybody else later on if you can time it out .
So that when you're done with your camp fire , most of it's burned down .
If you have to put it out with water , right , then go ahead and push all the coals to the center , get them away from the rock walls , let those rock walls start to cool down and then slowly put a little bit of water in , stir it around , add more water , stir it around .
You slowly want to make a soup until you put it all the way out .
You don't want any heat coming off of that .
You don't want it making any kind of sounds just slowly add it .
Try not to put any of that water on the rocks around your campfire ring .
So be safe with it .
A lot of times I'll put my hand up there , see if there's any heat .
30 minutes later , a lot of the old rangers used to take a twig , put it right in the middle of the fire ring .
And if before they've gotten everything rolled up and their tents ready to go in the morning , if any smoke's coming out of that or , or any indication that heat's coming up through it , that uh that is kind of a signal flare to say that you still got a fire .
So be safe again .
Conserve your resources .
I have my been preheated to 400 degrees because we will end up tossing these potatoes in the oven .
All right .
So I'm gonna go ahead and drizzle some olive oil on these .
And then on the screen you see , I have listed the seasoning blend that we will be using to season up these potatoes .
Also proper guys , we can't just salt and pepper these potatoes .
These potatoes gotta come out right these potatoes gotta be precious .
So we gonna season them up crazy just like so , so once that's all said and done , you're gonna go ahead and transfer these potatoes into a oven safe pan and we have our oven , like I said , at 400 degrees .
And we're gonna let these go for about 2025 minutes into their nice golden brown and looking also beautiful .
