How to Make Steak and Potato Foil Packets

It only takes a few steps to make this recipe:

  1. Prep. Cut four 18×12 inch pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat, about 425°F.
  2. Season. In a large bowl, combine the steak, potatoes, olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, paprika, thyme, salt and pepper. Toss until evenly coated.
  3. Assemble. Divide the steak and potato mixture evenly among the four pieces of foil, placing it in the center of each piece. Top each portion with cubed butter. Fold the foil over the contents to create a sealed packet.
  4. Grill. Place the foil packets on the preheated grill and cook for about 10 minutes. Flip the packets over and continue cooking for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender and the steak reaches the desired doneness.
  5. Finish and serve. Carefully open the foil packets (be cautious of the hot steam). Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired. Enjoy!

Tips For the Best Steak and Potato Foil Packets

Follow these tips to take your steak packets to the next level!

  • Treat yourself! Select a tender, flavorful cut like top sirloin or ribeye. Avoid tough cuts that require longer cooking times.
  • Keep things nice and even. Slice the steak and potatoes into uniform, bite-sized pieces. This ensures even cooking.
  • Season ‘em up! Don’t be shy with the seasonings! Garlic, herbs, and spices infuse the steak with flavor.
  • Seal ‘em up! Fold the foil securely around the contents, crimping the edges to create a tight seal. This allows the steak and potatoes to steam.
  • Give ‘em a break. After removing the packets from the grill, let them rest for a few minutes before opening. This lets the flavors meld.

How to Store

If you have leftover steak and potatoes, follow these steps:

To Store: Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Allow the packets to cool. Place them in an air-tight container or wrap with foil or plastic wrap before refrigerating.

To Reheat: Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and reheat in a preheated 350°F oven for about 10-15 minutes. Or, remove the steak and potatoes from the foil and reheat in the microwave until warm.
