Yum camping meal for two. Difficulty factor: no camp fire.

A couple years ago, this unhappy camper was me
. Update: that guy was a dick about a lot of things besides camping.
New gentleman friend: ultralight hardcore Appalachian and Pacific Trail backpacker type, but generously taking me car camping to climb my first Fourteener. He's in charge of warm and happy, I'm in charge of food. I'd planned grilled steaks with sweet potatoes roasted in the fire ... but now there may be no fires allowed.
What can I make without a camp fire that is fabulous? Steaks are already in the freezer. I have a bunch of cast iron pans. I can cook anything in a kitchen but have never really done the camp stove thing. It's only dinner one night, we'll be leaving that afternoon so I can do most prep/partial cooking ahead of time, and take it down in the cooler. (Site is a few hours from home.) He's a foodie, and will appreciate the effort.
Help, please? Suggestions for easy breakfast/snacks also welcome. Thank you, MeFites!
