Cut 1 ½ lb. steak into roughly 2-inch pieces. Dice 1 lb. potatoes,1 red pepper, and 1 small onion into 1-inch pieces or smaller.Partially cook the potatoes by boiling them for 5 minutes on the stove or cooking for 2 minutes in a dish with some water in the microwave.
Mix together 3 Tbsp. oil, 2 cloves crushed garlic, 1 tsp. paprika, 1 tsp. thyme, ½ tsp. each salt and pepper, and 2 tsp. lemon juice. Toss the steak, potatoes, onions, and peppers in the oil mixture.
Cut foil squares large enough to contain and fold over the steak and potatoes mixture, then divide the mixture evenly between them.
Seal up the foil packs and cook on the grill for 10 minutes or in the oven at 425°F for around 20 minutes. When done cooking, open the pack and finish the steak directly on the grill or place it under the broiler for a couple of minutes to brown. Serve in the pack or on a plate.
You can mix this recipe up however you would like. Try serving it with a shrimp foil pack for an easy surf and turf recipe or cook your potatoes separately, as in our foil pack potatoes recipe.
