Ingredients

Steak & Seasonings

Foil Packets

Optional Toppings

Instructions

  • Preheat oven or grill to 450F
  • Combine all seasonings together to create a dry rub.  Cut steak into strips and combine steak with dry rub in a bag so that each piece gets fully coated.  
  • Cut onions and bell peppers into slices, combine with avocado oil and garlic salt.  
  • Cut 6 pieces (grill) or 3 pieces (oven) of 18 x 18 inch heavy duty aluminum foil. 
  • Split veggies and meat among 3 pieces of foil evenly.  

To cook in oven:

  • Place steamer packets on a cookie sheet in the oven. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until veggies are tender. Turn the oven up to broil. Open the steamer packets (BE CAREFUL USE TONGS THE HOT STEAM WILL RELEASE) and broil for 5-7 minutes or until they have a nice char on the top.  (See photo tutorial for steamer packets in this post)

To grill:

  • Cook foil packets for 15 minutes on each side. Remove from the grill and let cool until they can be handled without injury (or use tongs) before unwrapping.  

Notes

  • For medium- well steak - reduce cooking time by 5 minutes
  • For medium steak - reduce cooking time by 10 minutes
  • For medium rare - reduce cooking time by 15 minutes
