Steak (your choice of cut), cut into cubes or strips
Potatoes, diced into small pieces
Fresh garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Optional: herbs like rosemary or thyme, onions, bell peppers
Preparation: Preheat your grill or oven to a medium-high heat (around 400°F/200°C).
Season the Steak and Potatoes: In a large bowl, combine the steak cubes and diced potatoes. Add the minced garlic, a generous drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well to ensure everything is evenly coated. If using, add your choice of herbs and other vegetables.
Assemble the Foil Packets: Lay out large sheets of aluminum foil. Divide the steak and potato mixture evenly among the sheets, placing them in the center. Fold the foil over the mixture and seal the edges to create a packet, ensuring there’s some room for air to circulate inside.
Cooking: Place the foil packets on the grill or in the oven. Cook for about 20-25 minutes. The exact time may vary depending on the thickness of your steak and potato pieces.
Check for Doneness: Carefully open one of the packets to check if the steak and potatoes are cooked to your liking. The steak should be tender and the potatoes soft.
Serve: Once cooked, carefully open the foil packets (watch out for the steam) and serve immediately.
