Recipe: Garlic Steak & Potato Foil Packets
Garlic Steak & Potato Foil Packets
2 pounds of lean sirloin steak, devoid of excess fat and sliced into 2-inch chunks
1 pound of baby yellow potatoes, quartered or halved (whatever your preference)
1 tablespoon of minced garlic (this amount can be adjusted based on your own preference)
2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning (or could use dried oregano/thyme/parsley mix)
1 teaspoon of onion powder
3 tablespoons of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1. If you are baking in oven, preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
2. In a spacious bowl, mix together the steak, potatoes, olive oil, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and assorted seasonings. Toss the ingredients gently until well combined.
3. Distribute the steak and potatoes evenly among four sheets of aluminum foil measuring approximately 12×12 inches. Wrap the foil tightly around the contents, creating secure foil packs.
3. If grilling, place foil packs over intense heat for around 10 mins each side, or until steak/potatoes are cooked.
If you are using the oven, put foil packets on baking sheet and bake for 20 mins or so, or until steak/potatoes are cooked to your liking.
4. Once cooked, carefully open the foil packets, being cautious of the hot steam that will escape. Sprinkle fresh parsley over the steak and potatoes for an extra burst of freshness.
Serve the Garlic Steak & Potato Foil Packets directly from the foil or transfer to plates. Enjoy this mouthwatering dish that combines the richness of steak with the comforting appeal of potatoes in a portable and flavorful package.
