2 pounds lean sirloin steak, trimmed and cut into 2-inch chunks

1 pound baby yellow potatoes, quartered or halved to your liking

1 tablespoon minced garlic (adjust to taste)

2 teaspoons Italian seasoning (alternatively, a mix of dried oregano, thyme, and parsley)

1 teaspoon onion powder

3 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste


Preparation: If oven-baking, preheat to 425°F (220°C).

Mix & Marinate: In a large mixing bowl, combine steak, potatoes, olive oil, garlic, and seasonings. Gently toss until everything's well-coated.

Packet Prep: Equally distribute the steak-potato mix among four 12x12 inch aluminum foil sheets. Seal the contents securely, forming neat foil packets.


For Grilling: Place the foil packs over high heat and grill for approximately 10 minutes each side, or until your preferred steak and potato doneness is achieved.

For Oven: Position foil packets on a baking sheet. Bake for roughly 20 minutes, or until the contents are cooked to your satisfaction.

Serve: Open the foil packets with caution — watch out for the steam! Garnish with fresh parsley for a zesty touch. Serve directly from the foil or plate them up.
