1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch pieces
1 pound baby potatoes, quartered
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional: fresh parsley for garnish
Step 1: Prepare the Foil Packets
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat, or preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
Cut four sheets of aluminum foil, each about 12 inches long, to create the foil packets.
Step 2: Season the Steak and Potatoes
In a large bowl, combine the steak pieces and quartered baby potatoes.
In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, minced garlic, chopped thyme, and rosemary. Pour this mixture over the steak and potatoes and toss until everything is well coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Step 3: Assemble the Foil Packets
Divide the steak and potato mixture evenly among the four sheets of foil.
Fold the foil over the steak and potatoes and seal the edges to close each packet, making sure to leave space inside for heat circulation.
Step 4: Cooking
Grill Method: Place the foil packets on the grill and cook for about 20-25 minutes, turning once, until steak is cooked to your desired doneness and potatoes are tender.
Oven Method: Place the foil packets on a baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, or until steak is cooked and potatoes are tender.
Step 5: Serving
Carefully open the foil packets (be cautious of the hot steam).
Garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and serve immediately.
Serve the Garlic Butter Steak and Potato Foil Packets hot, straight from the foil for a rustic presentation. They pair well with a fresh green salad, corn on the cob, or your favorite grilled vegetables.
Cutting Steak: Ensure the steak pieces are of uniform size for even cooking.
Potato Size: If using larger potatoes, cut them into smaller pieces to ensure they cook through.
Variations: Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms to the packets.
