Garlic Steak and Potato Foil Packs
I had some steak on hand and I wasn’t quite sure what to do with it, so I thought it would be a perfect time to try a recipe for Garlic Steak and Potato Foil Packs that I’ve been eyeing. They came out so beautifully tender and my belly had a ball.

Steak is one of those things that I want to order when we eat out as a family, but it’s just so ridiculously expensive. Often, I find that I can’t justify paying between $25-$30 for a steak dish served with potatoes. Then there’s this silly business of paying for other add-ons like mushrooms, gravy or what-have-you.
The last time I had a steak outside of the house was when Wayne and I went to the pub to watch a game. The kids were at their grandma’s house for a sleepover, and I justified the spend with the thinking that had the children been with us, we would be paying a lot more. Wayne added to this thought by saying that nobody ever got to Heaven and was congratulated and told… on the day 28th of October in the year of (insert here), you saved $10 by not ordering a steak. I caved.
These Garlic Steak and Potato Foil Packs were easy to make. I love the simplicity of a good steak. All you need is a good chunk of meat, salt & pepper, on top of a hot grill and it’s all goooood.
The kids aren’t big meat eaters, but they did enjoy this. It helped that there were potatoes in there. Potatoes are always a hit with them – no matter the method of cooking.
You can have the steak as soon as it’s done baking. But I prefer my steak with a bit of char to it. I think it brings out the full flavor. So I unraveled the packs and popped it under the grill for another 5 minutes on high. The result? Beautiful, tender, and juicy steak chunks and garlicky potatoes. Mmmm.
I wish I been able to take a prettier picture – but hey, I needed to get down to business and dig in. Just look at that.
Behind the scenes: Wayne was fanning the steam to keep it from fogging up the lens of my camera – LOL!!
