Butter Garlic Herb Steak Foil Packets

We have been loving every second of this warm weather and trying to get the thousands of things ready before baby gets here. We spent all day on Saturday doing yard work together. I love yard work but things are getting difficult with only about a week to go until this babe gets here. My back is out and my feet are so swollen. It feels so good to put my feet up and relax and eat some chocolate. 🙂

We love that this weekend is a long weekend and I love planning for Memorial Day. We love having a big BBQ followed by a fire and s’mores. Foil packets are one of my all time favorite things to grill. It is the perfect meal in one.

When I was thinking about how to switch up our normal foil packets I wanted to include steak for my steak loving son. And what better thing to include with them is a butter with garlic and herbs? It just melts while it cooks and creates the most tender and perfect steak and veggies.

We absolutely loved these foil packets! Easily one of our favorites. I love how the grill gives the slightly charred edges. These were full of amazing flavor and I loved the combination of the herbs.

You guys have got to grill these this summer. They are fantastic and will become a new favorite at your house as well!

Recipe Notes

*I didn't sear the beef before hand and cooked this meal on the grill in tin foil. I do however flip the packets over onto the flame at the very end to give the beef and veggies a slight char.

  1. Saved this recipe for some time now and I’m starting to do grilling. If I want my steak to be medium rare, how long do I cook the foil packets?

    1. Alyssa, you are so patient. You must’ve answered the oven question fifteen times. Lol.
      My only question, and I did look for the answer, is what setting did you use on your gas grill to have them done in 15 minutes.
      Thank you for being so patient and sharing your great recipes, saving us so much time figuring them out ourselves.

  2. If I were to throw this in the oven instead of grill. What temp would I use and for how long please? Thank you this recipe looks amazing 🙂

  3. Looks amazing….just wondering could this be adapted for cooking inside as I am in Australia and we are in winter atm.

  4. Anyone a good enough cook to recommend an oven version of this? Looks awesome, but some of use don’t have a barbeque 😉

  5. Regarding the garlic herb steak packets, could these be done in the oven? What temp would you suggest? I don’t own a grill, find them more trouble than they’re worth, but these look delicious. Thank you. Susan

  6. if you don’t have a grill, can these be done in the oven?
    at what temperature would you set the oven?
    how long would you cook it?

  7. Hi – Are there any directions if you wished to cook this same recipe in an conventional oven/stove at home? Any help would be great – thanks!

  8. Hi Alyssa,
    I plan to try this recipe tomorrow. I’d love to see more BBQ ideas. I have a gas grill. Will it make a difference, when trying to get the char? Thank you!

    1. Yes, of course! I have not tried it in the oven yet but I would recommend for 18 to 25 minutes flipping it over after 12 minutes of baking. Let me know how it turns out! XOXO

    I knew that I wanted to make this recipe for Father’s day even though our whole family is walking around like zombies over the recent passing out my beloved sister in law. Who was an excellent cook. When I got to the Bottom of the recipe it said “Alyssa also recommends” It was what we call a Good wink” My sister in law’s name was Alyssa. The dinner was wonderful.

  10. On the Butter Garlic Herb steak. Can it be cooked in oven. We are not grillers. If so, how long and what temp and time.

    1. Yes, of course! I have not tried it in the oven yet but it will be great to try. I would recommend 375* to 400* for 18 minutes. Checking periodically! Hope that helps! XOXO

    First rule of any grilling recipe: You need to state the temperature that the grill should be at for cooking the recipe. I don’t see this.

  12. You mention cooking this on the campfire. Do you suggest placing beside the fire on a large rock or on a grill above the fire? Also how long for the potatoes to be cooked?

    1. Yes! This is always a fun way to have dinner. I like to place it directly on the rack over the fire or on a hot rock close to the fire. Whichever you have available. These are great and easy to make ahead for dinners when camping. You will cook about 15-20 minutes flipping it and checking on it periodically. They taste amazing and even better camping! ENJOY! XOXO

    I got this recipe from Pinterest and I absolutely love this. I made it for the first time today and it was delicious. It was really easy to make and the directions were easy to understand. I would recommend this to everyone! Flavors were super!

    Made this yesterday on the grill. It was delicious! I substituted dried herbs with measurements adjusted, and used green onions because I had to use them up. The herb butter would be good on steamed vegetables as well.

    I made these ase directed and they were delicious! I was surprised to read that some people had difficulty with them in the comments. They turned out perfect for me!

    Okay this is soooo good. We changed it up a bit but they were ahhmazing! We did not use any carrots or bell peppers and instead added corn on the cob that we sliced thick (about the size of the potatoes). We tried this recipe twice: once on a charcoal grill and once on a gas grill. They took so much longer on the charcoal grill (close to 40 min) then the 20 min on the gas grill. They tasted better on the gas grill too. We’ll likely do this again

  17. Hi, this sounds great! I’d love to take it with me camping this weekend. Can this be made about a day in advance and refrigerated/cooled until ready to cook? And do you have any tips for cooking this on a campfire grill? Thanks!

    I made this today and it was yummy. I flipped the packet over the flame and left it to grill for another 5 minutes to get the slight char. Definitely will make this again. Thank you Alyssa for sharing

  19. After 15 minutes in the grill everything was still crunchy. Left it on until I ran out of propane. Brought it in to finish off in the oven. I don’t see how all the vegetables were done in just 15 minutes. The steak was steamed and yes, there was a lot of water in the packets.

  20. Butter Garlic Herb Steak in foil packets. I don’t grill. I’d like to try this recipe and bake/roast in the oven. Can you tell me how to change it so I can do so.
