Garlic Steak Foil Packets Tips
Here are a few tips to help you make the perfect garlic steak foil packets:
- Start with quality steak – This is one recipe where you really want to use good quality steak. I like to use New York strip steak, but ribeye or filet mignon would also be great choices.
- Season the steak well – Be generous with your seasoning, and don’t be afraid to get a little bit messy. I like to use a steak rub that has lots of garlic and herbs in it.
- Use baby potatoes – Baby potatoes cook quickly, and they’re the perfect size for these foil packets. If you can’t find baby potatoes, you can cut regular potatoes into small pieces.
- Use fresh herbs – Fresh herbs really brighten up the flavors in these steak foil packets. I like to use rosemary and thyme, but you could also use oregano or basil.
- Cook the steak to your liking – I like my steak medium rare, but cook the steak to your liking. If you’re not sure how long to cook it, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak.
Garlic Steak Foil Packets Variations
If you’re looking for a little variation, there are a few different ways that you can change up these garlic steak foil packets. Here are a few ideas:
- Use different steak – If you’re not a fan of New York strip steak, you can use any type of steak that you like. Ribeye, filet mignon, or even flank steak would be great choices.
- Change up the potatoes – If you don’t want to use baby potatoes, you could use regular potatoes that have been cut into small pieces. Or, for a lower-carb option, you could use sweet potatoes or cauliflower.
- Use different herbs – If you’re not a fan of rosemary or thyme, you could use any type of herb that you like. Oregano, basil, or even parsley would be great choices.
- Add some veggies – If you want to add some extra veggies to these steak foil packets, there are plenty of options. Mushrooms, onions, peppers, and zucchini would all be great choices.
- Make it spicy – If you like your food with a little bit of a kick, you can add some spice to these steak foil packets. A little bit of cayenne pepper or chili powder would be a great way to add some heat.

Make ahead tips
- For larger potatoes, pre-boil to ensure they cook all the way.
- Don’t skip searing the steak; that is what locks in the flavor.
- You can cut steak and vegetables up to 24 hours in advance and leave them refrigerated until you are ready to cook.
- For even more flavor, marinate the steak for 30 minutes – 1 hour.
- Serve with a fresh garden salad.
- Pairs well with warm bread like dinner rolls, garlic bread, or breadsticks!
- Goes great with corn on the cob.
Other Cooking Methods
Air fryer: Place packets in the air fryer and cook at 375 for 20-25 minutes.
Grill: Cook the packet on the grill for 15-20 minutes or until the veggies can easily be pierced with a fork and the steak is done.
Can I Make These Foil Packets Ahead of Time?
Yes, you can prep the steak and potato foil packs ahead of time, up to 24 hours in advance. Make the pack and place it in the refrigerator until you are ready to cook. Keep in mind that the potatoes will oxidize after a few hours so they may change colors.
