This foil pack dinner makes it easy to cook a great meal for your family. It’s also a simple way to cook for one or two people. These beef foil packets are filled with potatoes, broccoli, and slices of steak seasoned with rosemary and garlic.
Okay, so I wouldn’t completely say that I am suffering from sleep deprivation with the baby and all. However, I would say that I do not get as much rest as I use to. I guess that makes sense when you start a family. In fact, I feel that I don’t have time for a lot of things nowadays. I don’t have time to sit and play my video games (yes I am a gamer); don’t have time to read as much as I use to; I’m too tired to work out (but I really want to get back to it), and I definitely don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen.
I have also relied heavily on my crockpot as it has been good to me. But sometimes I feel as though I need more variety. But with these Steak and Potato foil packets, I am learning to rely more on the oven.
How do you make a foil packet dinner?
What I love about foil packet dinners is that you can put ANYTHING in foil and the heat will do the rest of the work. Heck, you can even put chocolate chip cookies in foil and they will bake. Don’t believe me? Check out my Grilled Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. I’ve done it before! So if I can put cookies in foil, I definitely can put steak and potatoes in foil making Steak and Potato Dinner Packets.

In this Steak and Potato Foil Packets Dinner, you have everything you want in a traditional steak dThe steak was perfectly cooked to perfection. It wasn’t tough like I was afraid it would be; the potatoes were fork tender, and the broccoli still had a bit of a crispness to it! My husband and I were very impressed by these steak foil packets. The only thing he regrets is there were no seconds.
Customize your foil dinner packet
I encourage you to get creative with making your own foil dinners! I am telling you they are so super easy to make. Here are some protein suggestions that you can use to make your foil packet dinner:
- Thin Chicken Breast
In addition to your protein choice, you’ll need to fill it with vegetables of your choice. You can use just about anything such as:
- Sweet Potatoes
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Pearl Onions
- Green Beans
- Baby Corn
One thing I suggest about making foil packet dinners is you have to have some sort of sauce or flavored butter to add flavor. With this Steak and Potato Foil Packets dinner, I made garlic and herb butter that I put on top of the steak as soon as it came out of the oven. That butter made this Steak and Potato Foil Packets dinner that much better! I can’t wait for you to try this easy dinner recipe. Just be sure you come back and let me know what you think!
Commonly Asked Questions
No. Another great option that you can use is flank steak. You will follow the recipe the same way and cook for the same amount of time.
I don’t see why not. I would imagine that you would need a longer cook time and you may have to boil the potatoes for a little while just until they’re soft if that is a vegetable you plan on using. If you are using veggies without potatoes, I would just toss them in a little oil and seasonings, and proceed as normal.
