What kind of steak is best to cook in a foil pack?
Since this foil pack dinner cooks relatively quickly and has minimal additions, you are best off choosing a good quality steak with a good flavor.
The best options are top sirloin steak or ribeye steak, as both have good marbling and flavor.
How to Cook Steak in Foil Packets
You can easily make this foil pack recipe on the grill or in the oven by following these instructions:
- Dice the steak into roughly 2-inch pieces.
- Dice the potatoes into smaller than 1-inch pieces and the pepper and onion into a similar size.
- Pre-cook the potatoes either by boiling or in the microwave, until just cooked (boiled around 5min on the stovetop, or 2min in the microwave in a dish with some water).
- Mix together the oil, garlic, paprika, thyme, salt, pepper, and lemon juice.
- Toss the steak, potatoes, onions, and peppers in the oil mixture.
- Cut foil squares large enough to hold and fold over the steak and potatoes mixture, then divide the mixture evenly between them.
- Seal up the foil packs and either cook on the grill around 10 min or in the oven at 425°F around 20 min.
- Open up the pack and finish the steak either directly on the grill or the whole pack under the broiler for a couple of minutes to brown.
- Serve directly in the foil pack.
What to Serve with a Steak Foil Pack
Since our steak foil pack oven recipe is cooked with vegetables, they don’t particularly need anything else to go with them. However, if you want to make it a fuller meal you could serve a salad like this Fresh Vegetable Salad with Creamy Balsamic Dressing or Grilled Peaches Salad on the side, or try one of these Side Dishes for BBQ.
Alternatively, you can add additional vegetables in with the pack such as mushrooms (halved or smaller, if big), or slices of zucchini. Or, cook the mushrooms separately and add them later, like these Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions or this Button Mushrooms Recipe.
Our steak foil pack on the grill is easy to put together, perfect as both a summer grilling recipe or for cooler days in the oven. It’s one of our favorite foil pack dinners, being full of great flavors with easily adaptable ingredients to suit your taste and what you have on hand. Easy prep, easy clean up, and recipes with steak are always so delicious.
