Garlic Steak and Cheesy Bacon Potato Foil Packs

steak and potatoes foil pack

Hello out there!!. If you love steak your going to really love this recipe as you sprinkle bacon and cheese on the potatoes. Who doesn’t love nice and crispy bacon and cheese smothered potatoes, especially potatoes that have been grilled or roasted in the oven or in a cast iron skillet on the stove.  Make sure you use a cast iron skillet for this and depending on size of skillet you may only be able to cook 2 foil packs at a time.  Makes me hungry right now just thinking about how good this dish is. Yummy !!

I like to use a good cut of meat for this meal such as porter house steak or even a nice filet-mignon cut from Costco is my shopping place. Be sure to cut up the meat into 2 inch pieces. If you use a nice steak for this you will have a good tender meat and not a tough chewy meat. I also love to marinate this meat in Dales steak seasoning which I purchase from Walmart or Amazon. Only marinate for 10 minutes. Hope you enjoy this meal like we do!

  • 1 cup diced bacon (make sure you cook nice and  crispy)
  • 1/2 cup scallions (green onions/shallots) sliced
  • 2 to 3 pounds of steak of your choice  (filet-mignon – porter house or rib-eye is best for tenderness)
  • Salt to taste
  • Cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded 
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese shredded ( can be substituted for pepper jack)
  1. Preheat grill  or oven (if cooking in cast iron skillet cook on medium to high heat)

  2. Make a batch of garlic butter (butter-garlic-parsley) combined. Cut in half melting one half in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Combine the potatoes and the onions in a bowl. Pour the melted garlic butter over the top and set aside.

  3. Spread the remaining non-melted butter over the steak you chose to evenly coat.

For  Well Done Steaks
  1. Slice your fillet into 2-inch thick slices

    • If you want a medium or rare steak -cut your fillet into 4-inch long pieces The bigger you cut them, the more juicy the steak will be once its done. For even rarer steaks, cut them even bigger (5 or 6 inch pieces).
Cooking  Instructions:
  1. Tear four to six large  pieces of heavy duty foil a good 15 to 16 inches and arrange on your kitchen counter. Divide steaks and potatoes evenly placing them in the middle of the foil sheets. Sprinkle with parsley, and season with salt and pepper

  2. Fold up the sides of the foil  over the steak and potatoes,to completely seal in the ingredients pressing and seal tightly to prevent any juices from spilling out. (Make sure its sealed very secure as you will be flipping these foil packets over after they have cooked for 7 minutes.)

  3. Place foil packets on the  preheated grill or oven , cover and cook for 7 to 8 minutes on one side. Flip and cook on the other side for a further 7 to 8  minutes, until potatoes are cooked through, (If cooking in oven don’t have to flip.) Take out  the foil packs and be careful to not get burned when opening. Sprinkle the cheese over the potatoes, and fold the foil back up to allow the cheese to melt through for a further few minutes while still on the grill or oven.

  4. Top the potatoes with the cooked crispy bacon, garnish with more green onions, and season with  extra salt and pepper if needed.
