HOW TO PREPARE STEAK AND POTATO FOIL PACKS

I tested this steak and potato foil packs recipe with flank steak, ribeye, and top sirloin. In my world, top sirloin worked best for these foil packs. It works with the other two, as well, but top sirloin won because it’s a good steak for grilling and it has more flavor.

Secondly, the potatoes. Potatoes will take longer to cook than steak. For that reason, I have a couple of suggestions:

ONE: Precook or parboil the potatoes. See recipe notes. 

-OR-

TWO: Don’t precook the potatoes, but cut them up to about ONE inch cubes. Also try to use mini Yukon gold potatoes because they work best with the cook time.

GRILLING STEAK AND POTATO FOIL PACKS

Before we take these foils to the grill, we will need to chop up the steak and potatoes, and combine it all in a bowl together with some garlic, herbs, and olive oil. If time allows, I suggest to let the meat and potatoes marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then, remove from fridge and set on the kitchen counter for 15 minutes while you preheat the grill.

  • Cut out 4 large pieces of foil and divide steak and potatoes between all sheets of foil. Wrap tightly and grill for 10 minutes per side OR preheat oven to 450 and cook for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender and internal temperature of steak reaches at least 140F.
  • 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.
  • 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.

That’s all, friends! Super easy, right? I personally love foil dinners because they are easy to make, and are packed with flavor. You can also get dinner on the table in a flash with almost zero cleanup, which is my favorite part.

Recipe Notes

COOK'S NOTES:

FOR THE POTATOES

  • 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 one inch cubes. Also try to use mini Yukon gold potatoes because they work best with the cook time.

FOR THE STEAK

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.

  1. Love the recipe looks delicious can t wait to try it does it matter what kind of steak? I like filet mignon instead of sirloin steak would it turn out the same? I know some steaks are a little juicier with a little fat in them, also I m thinkin about adding yellow and green zucchini, and onions to the pouch I always cook those 3 things in a dish on grill anyway and I think it would be yummy with the steak n potatoes anyway thanks so much for the recipe and I will let ya know how it turns out and just something I noticed you must get really tired of posting the same response to the same questions people are asking if everyone would just scroll thru all the comments you would answer your own question she sounds like a very busy woman doing all of us a favor free of charge so let s not make it anymore stressful than it already is try to look for the question you have and if it has been already answered before asking her to take the time to give you the same answer she has giving 15 other ppl im just sayin!! Continue the good work lady can t wait to try them! Have a Great evening!! .

    1. Hi!
      Filet mignon, or flank steak even, would definitely work. I like filet mignon, too, so I’m sure that will be delicious!

      I try to answer all the questions within the post, but most people don’t want to bother with reading through – I totally understand! – but the answers are there. 😃

  2. There’s an error under Recipe Notes / Cooks Notes
    You say precook, and yet in the next line you say don’t precook ???
    So what is it ???

    Potatoes take longer to cook than steak. For that reason, I have a couple of suggestions:
    Precook or parboil the potatoes.
    Don’t precook the potatoes, just cut them up to about one inch cubes. Also try to use mini Yukon gold potatoes because they also work best with the cook time.

    1. Hi!
      The options are to precook whole potatoes and then cut them in half before you set them in the foil with the steak, OR don’t precook, but cut the potatoes up into smaller pieces so that they will cook evenly with the steak. Does that make sense? I hope! 🙂 Let me know. Thank you!

  3. Hi, this recipe looks grand. Just confused with regards to your Cooking Notes. You state in 1. Precook or Parboil the potatoes, Then in 2 you state, don’t precook or parboil the potatoes.
    I don’t think I want to cut the potatoes in ! in cubes, so how much time should I precook or parboil the potatoes if
    I cut them in regular sizes are pictured. Looks so good and easy, so I hope you can answer this asap. Thank you for
    a grand recipe.

    1. Hi!! So, to parboil small potatoes, you’ll need to put 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. I’ll leave these notes in the recipe card, too. I hope you’ll enjoy your dinner!! 🙂

      1. Mary

        I am not sure what I did wrong. I cut the potatoes to small pieces and cut the steak in larger pieces. I put in oven at 450 and cooked for 20 minutes. The steak turned out over cooked and potatoes were not done completely. So next time I will parboil the potatoes and cook for less time.
