Backyard BBQ Ideas: Grilled Steak and Bacon Wrapped Potatoes

If you have ever been to Orlando, Florida, you may have noticed that there is an abundance of vacation rentals with pools.  Way back in 2019, our entire team stayed at our pool villa in Kissimmee at the Windsor at Westside Resort.

One of the greatest highlights of the trip would definitely be grilling (and eating) juicy ribeye steaks and potatoes by the pool.  Read on for the full recipe. Curious to see what else went on during our trip? Check out our vlog down below.

1) Wash and pat dry steak.

2) Season steak generously with salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder.

3) Gently pat down seasoning, and repeat on the other side. Since we are grilling them, don’t be afraid to use lots of seasoning, as some of the seasoning will fall off the grill.

4) Time to fire up the grill: preheat to 375 F.

5) Put the steak and potatoes on the grill and close the lid for 3 minutes.

6) Flip the steak over. For medium rare ribeye, flip only once, for 3 minutes per side.

7) Cut up chunks of garlic butter to melt over the steak and potatoes.

8) Add bacon to the grill. Flip over and top over the potatoes.

9) Melt some blue cheese on the ribeye steak.
