Campfire Steak with Worms & Grasshoppers, # Show us your Steak

692 ratings | 5595 views
There's nothing better than getting outside and cooking a steak over a fire. In this video, I flame-char a steak to perfection at my debris shelter, then serve it with sautéed mushrooms, mulled wine, and a few crunchies on top- dehydrated worms and grasshoppers. Not as bad as it sounds! I like to try new things and was inspired by my friend Ron Jacobs who likes unusual foods so much he hosts "Eat it or Not" parties twice a year. I've tried some pretty questionable things at those parties! Makes this look pretty tame. Anyways- hope you enjoy the video!

Not knockin bugs, i've had 'em but there's plenty of protein in steak. My lizard brain glows dim with convenience. You deserve many more subscribers. Sometimes.. heating neck of bottle forces cork out.

Hey, Brooke. Thanks for doing this, I'm a man who has struggled with depression, so I appreciate it. I just ordered both the Larvets and Crick-ettes from your Amazon storefront. I spent some time in the Navy and visited a few Asian countries where I enjoyed the local street food. Things like chicken feet and monkey meat. But, I never ate any bugs. I've seen many videos of street food bug markets and have always been curious. Well, now I'm going to try it out. 😀

Next time bring a bottle of Mescal with a gusano worm in the bottle. Drink the liquor down until you can get to the worm, then put it on the steak and cook it. Throw on some grubs, crickets, ants, or anything else handy. Finish drinking the Mescal and by the time your steak is ready, it won't matter to you what your steak tastes like.

In the mulled wine, my Grandmother would also put the orange slices and a couple handfuls of raisins, that she would squash in a bowl, stir in and simmer.  You could strain it if you wanted.

Oh Brooke that’s just a crime against a good steak I think I Rather shoot myself in the foot before I eat that say hi to Dave for me and merry Christmas great video
So, why would someone eat worms & grasshoppers when they have steak & mushrooms????? For the shock value maybe????? And the views?????????????? Just wondering.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
I like to try different things.... there's no harm in that

Enjoyed the video Brooke. Nice job on the fire and stupendous job on the cork. I always love the sound of a screech owl....eerie but somehow comforting. They are some cool little creatures. Thanks for accepting the challenge and prayers for those suffering from depression and mental illness.

It's great you did this video. I donated $20 to bbrfoundation.org in your name and Haze Outdoors who started this movement. Thanks! Those steaks looked awesome, btw. And it looked liked Daisy was all about steak and coyotes! As usual, I enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing. Edit: "Thank you for your generous donation to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, an accredited 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Remember, 100% of your contribution for research goes DIRECTLY to our grants which lead to discoveries in understanding causes and improving treatments of mental health disorders in children and adults. This is made possible by the generous support of two family foundations which cover all of the Foundation’s operating expenses."

Sidney Mathious (6 months ago)
I like that you brought the material you needed to start your fire with and your dog is so ready to eat, but don't want to eat the insects and I can't blame him/her. The steak sounds great though and would have me hungry for it also. Your multi-tool came in handy to open the wine bottle with and for other uses as well. I don't drink coffee, but do keep chocolate mix in my backpack to drink when camping out to stay hydrated in the cold. I can't blame your dog for not wanting the worms and she is waiting on the steak instead. I could not believe you ruined the steak by putting the insects on it. That is sad about your friend and I hope he is doing better.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
thanks sidney, yes maysie knows the steak is the best!
Double D (6 months ago)
Hello from Oklahoma! There is something special about getting away and spending time in the woods with a dog and eating a steak, or dogs in my case. I don't know about the bugs though. Years ago I had a screech owl family living in a cedar tree right outside my front door when I lived in Nebraska. Sometimes it was hard to get any sleep because of all the racket they would make. Thanks for the videos. The wife and I Love'm! God Bless you and your family! Merry Christmas!!!

yes love the screeches! sometimes to me they sound like a neighing horse!

William Pysell (6 months ago)
You had me up to the point where you ate the worms! I don't think I would pass on the grasshoppers, but, unless I was actually starving, I do not think that I could knowingly eat worms of ANY kind! Sorry!

Barry Webber (6 months ago)
Thanks for posting Brook. Loved your red outfit and those super boots! Together with the mulled wine it seemed appropriately Christmassy! I thought you might have been able to pull out the broken corkscrew and cork with the pliers on your letterman. Maisie is a beautiful dog, the steak looked good but you're braver than me eating mealworms and grass hoppers! We have just finished watching "I'm a Celebrity get me out of here" from Australia here in the UK where celebrities eat lots of weird and horrible things, you would do ok on that programme I think. Your comments about mental health were very pertinent. Best wishes.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
Thanks Barry- I did try to pry it out with my Leatherman but it didn't budge! Sounds like a fun show :) TC

Lilly cooks a very impressive steak. Her last one was in the embers. Less than a one pot roast. She occasionally forgets the beer though. I would like you both to show us your glazed pork ribs.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
James Parlane (6 months ago)
A Swiss Army knife has a good corkscrew on it. It is interesting that at different times of life each blade on the SA knife is useful. Just as I get over the corkscrew years, they invent screw top wine bottles. Now days the scissors are my go to for cutting toe nails. Just thought I would share that with the group. Eating bugs is only for when you have to bug out.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
Yes you never know what tools you'll need- coulda used that SA knife tho!
Shiny Nickel (6 months ago)
I've had to handle a lot of those freeze dried worms when I worked for Amazon, and it's not fun. I thought people were buying them for their lizards. I would never be able to try them like you did. I don't like mushrooms either, lol.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
Yes they buy them for reptiles and chickens. You can go into the farm store and buy a huge bag!
Kevola (6 months ago)
When I read the title I thought it would be about you dropping the steak, therefore worms and grasshoppers. I wouldn’t eat anything that my dog wouldn’t eat. We should all take the time to sit back and relax to take inventory of our happiness. We cannot work on our mental health until we take the time to evaluate. And your right, dogs are good listeners. They can get you started on talking out loud about what is deep inside.
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
thanks kevola!

i'll take my steak and mushrooms without the worms and grasshoppers, thanks! LOL

What kind of socks you wear just asking I need something to keep my feet warm when i work outside
Girl in the Woods (6 months ago)
Wool when it's cold. And change your socks often so they stay warm and dry... even in your boots they can get damp when it's not wet outside.

Ken (6 months ago)
Sorry but I like my worms on the end of a fishing line.As to your steak,well you took care of the evidence.Did the waiter issue paper napkins or cloth? It makes a difference when it is time to leave a tip.Did all the silverware match?Just remember to severe left to right, and clean up is right to left.BTW, if you would like some live grasshoppers in Texas around mid August they are plentiful.Ken

I did a practice week in forensics....we took similar pictures..., the worms were alive and the bait was not a steak. But the pictures...very similar. So forgive me, but this vid was not very attractive to me. I would try these worms and I love steak...but for goodness sake, not together.

Those aren't actually "worms", though they do have worm in their name. They are mealworm beetle (Tenebrio molitor) "larva". They are an "insect". Worms are not insects.
Duck Landes (6 months ago)
In my opinion most doctors are nothing more than glorified dope pushers. They have little to no interest in healing people, there's no profit in that when they can get people hooked on a grossly over priced pill for the rest of their lives, plus additional pills to deal with the horrible side effects of the first ones. They push whatever pill the big pharma rep tells them to, which ever pill they get the biggest kickback from. Doctor's offices are production lines running as many people through a day as possible, writing as many prescriptions per day as they can. I did more than my fair share of every drug I could get my hands on in my younger years. But it was doctor's pills that convinced me that "drugs are bad". The only pills I've taken in over 35 years are aspirin and penicillin a few times when I had bad teeth. I haven't been to a doctor since 1989, and don't plan on going to one for another 30 or more years. Even going to the dentist I refuse their prescriptions for pain pills, I've even had root canals without novocaine shots. I've had several friends murdered by doctors (ya I said it). Synthetic heroin makes your brain "forget" to tell you to breath. The "official" cause of death is always "cardiac arrest". Drugs are bad.
