Garlic Steak & Yummy Potatoes in a Foil Pack, Delicious

    Steak and potatoes are just 2 foods that go good together.  Just like biscuits and gravy, chips & salsa, and coffee and doughnuts!  Yum!   This recipe for garlic steak and potatoes in a foil pack just melts in your mouth!  It makes a flavorful and hearty meal that doesn't get much easier to make.  The steak turns out so tender and juicy and can be made in the oven or on the grill.  So yummy that your whole family will love it.  It truly is one amazing meal that you do not want to miss out on!





Garlic Steak & Yummy Potatoes 

2-2 1/2 lb.s steak (sirloin, rib-eye, flank or stew meat), cut into 2" chunks
1 lb. Yukon gold potatoes, cut into 1" chunks
1 c. melted butter
2 sliced carrots or 1 can carrots
1 onion, skin removed and cut/separated into large pieces
1-2 T. olive oil
1 T. minced garlic
1 T. parsley flakes
1 tsp. rosemary
1 tsp. thyme
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

      Before we begin, let me say that I have made this with top sirloin, ribeye, flank and stew meat and I think the sirloin is the best choice for these.  Don't get me wrong, all of them turned out great but the sirloin just has more flavor and is more tender.

      Now, cut up your potatoes and place them in boiling water and cook for 3 minutes.  Drain and remove from heat and set aside.  I partially cook the potatoes so that when you put everything together, every thing cooks evenly. If you don't partially cook the potatoes just a bit then your steak might be overdone.  When you do it this way, your cook and potatoes turn out perfectly.

      In a large bowl, combine the steak, potatoes, carrots, olive oil, salt & pepper.

      Stir well to combine.  Take 4 large (18"x12") pieces of foil and lay them out on a table.  Divide up your steak mixture and divide it up between the 4 pieces of foil and place the mixture into the center of each one.  

     In a small bowl, combine the butter, garlic, parsley, rosemary and thyme.  Stir well and pour some of it over each steak mixture.

Place a large piece of onion on top.

     Now double fold over the sides and top of the foil.

     Place the foil packets onto a baking sheet and bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Once the time has elapsed, you can carefully open up the foil packs and broil them for 2-3 minutes.  This will give the steak a nice char.  Tonight, I did not broil them and they still tasted wonderful.   Right before eating this, I often sprinkle some Parmesan and parsley flakes on top.    Yum!

    Be sure to "dip" your meat and veggies into the garlic butter on the bottom of the foil pack with each bite.  

     If you prefer to grill these, place the packets on the grill on high heat and cook for about 10 minutes or until the steak is browned and the potatoes are tender. 

     You can freeze these after cooking for up to 2 months. Just remove from the freezer, remove the foil, place the frozen meat mixture into a microwavable safe bowl, and heat it up.  It will taste just as good as the day you cooked it.
