Recipe Info

These delicious steak and potatoes foils are made with juicy sirloin steak bites and tender potatoes seasoned with garlic and herbs. It’s an easy foil packet recipe that you can cook on the grill (or in the oven!) for a flavorful family dinner.

1.5 to 2 pounds top sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 pound mini Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
salt and fresh ground pepper to taste

In a large bowl combine steak, potatoes, oil, garlic, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cover and set in the fridge for 30 minutes. Take out from fridge and set on the counter for 15 minutes. Cut out 4 large foil sheets, about 12×12 in size. Divide steak and potatoes between the sheets of foil.

Preheat grill to HIGH. Wrap foils tightly around the steak and potatoes and seal it all together. Transfer foil packets to the grill and grill over high heat for 10 minutes PER SIDE.

Preheat oven to 450˚F.
Wrap foils tightly around the steak and potatoes and seal it all together. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, or until internal temperature of steak reaches about 135˚F and potatoes are tender. If you want a nice char on the steak, open up the packets and pop them under the broiler for a couple minutes, then serve.

Notes –
Potatoes take longer to cook than steak. For that reason, I have a couple of suggestions:
Precook or parboil the potatoes. To parboil small potatoes, you’ll need to place the potatoes in a pot with cold water and bring to a boil. Turn down heat to a simmer and cook for about 5 minutes. Drain and let cool for a minute or two, then cut and continue with the recipe. OR, don’t precook the potatoes, but cut them up to about 1-inch cubes. Also try using mini Yukon gold potatoes because they work best with the cooking time.

For a rare or medium-rare steak, I suggest cutting the steak into larger pieces because, as stated before, the potatoes need more time to cook. If you like a well done steak, cut the steak into 1-inch pieces.

Variation Ideas:
– Add-Ins. Crumbled bacon is an easy way to add flavor to steak and potatoes. Or, grate on some fresh cheddar, Pepper Jack, or Parmesan cheese to melt inside the packets.
– Seasonings. You can season your foil packets however you’d like. Try Cajun spice or Jamaican jerk seasoning for a spicy kick, or another herb blend. Homemade fajita seasoning would also be delicious.
– Vegetables. Choose veggies with similar cooking times to cook inside your steak and potatoes foil packets. Chopped bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, green beans, or broccoli are all great options.
