  • 2-3 pounds steaks, cubed (ribeye or flat iron steaks)
  • olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced or sliced
  • 2 large russet potatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 tbsp salted butter
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • steak seasoning, optional


  • Tear off 4 large square sheets of aluminum foil.
  • Drizzle all 4 foil aluminum square pieces with olive oil.
  • Put 1 tbsp .of butter on each foil sheet.
  • Dice potatoes into cubes (about 1-inch). Leaving the skin on.
  • Divide up the cubed potatoes and place on top of the butter on each aluminum foil square.
  • Evenly sprinkle minced garlic and diced onion over each of the four servings.
  • Then sprinkle with kosher salt & pepper.
  • Drizzle with a bit more olive oil.
  • Put steak pieces on top of potatoes.
  • Season with a bit more salt & pepper or your favorite steak seasoning.
  • Drizzle with a bit more olive oil and put another pat of butter on top.
  • Also, another good tip to keep your meat from getting dried while cooking is to add a large ice cube on top of the meat.
  • Fold up each of the sides to make a nice little bed for the potatoes, making a square.
  • So none of the butter and oil can escape while cooking.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • Grill packets for about 35-45 minutes.
  • Check periodically for doneness.



Be careful when opening the packets because the steam is gonna come outta there fast and furious.
