Wraps are a real winner in a camping cook kit. They can turn simple ingredients into a fun meal. We do beef really well in this country.

The most delectable steak I think I have ever tried was bison steak, reared on one of our CSs, Bush Farm in Wiltshire. It was delectably velvety in texture, moist and flavoursome.

A steak, griddled simply is hard to beat. But if you're looking for some excitement for a family meal, then fajitas are great.

The steak can be replaced with chicken, but for some reason beef is more Mexican according to my husband. With the peppers and tomatoes this is a great seasonal summer meal.

  1. Heat the marinade in a small saucepan until it bubbles, then keep warm.
  2. Toss the onion and peppers in tablespoon of oil then griddle on a hot plate, or in a frying pan until cooked through and caramelised. This will take about 10 minutes.
  3. While that is happening, grill the steak on a hot plate or griddle for about 3 minutes on each side until cooked to your liking.
  4. Remove from the heat, let it rest, covered for 5 minutes.
  5. Thinly slice the steak and mix with the peppers and onions.
  6. Serve in the wraps, drizzled with heated marinade and cheese.
