  1. Hi, this looks so good, I would love to make it. How would you adapt it temperature and time wise for a conventional oven bake? Thanks

    1. Hi, Linda! I’m so happy you want to try them 🙂 For the oven, cook them at 425 degrees for 20-25 minutes, flipping them at the halfway mark.

        1. I cook the potatoes & meat together in the foil packs, for 10-12 minutes on each side- flipping in between. Hope that helps!

  2. Hi,
    This looks pretty darn good and I’m going to have to make it for la familia. Just wondering with the cooking times, what’s the temperature of the meat? Also, do you suggest adding veggies right in the same foil pack? I was thinking of either baby carrots, asparagus, or broccoli.
    Thanks,
    Manny

    1. Manny, they really are and you will be so glad you tried them! The recipe card includes the cooking times, or at least what I do, and over medium high heat. As far as the meat temp, I don’t really check that with steaks since they’re generally safe to consume even when barely cooked. Yes, add the veggies right on in with the meat for maximum flavor, and you can’t really go wrong with any combination of veggies you choose to go with. My personal vote would be still use the potatoes, but also include either asparagus or broccoli.

  3. This looks great! Do you think I’d be able to use stewing beef for this instead of the sirloin steak? I’ve had stewing beef in my freezer for a bit that I’d like to use up & its too hot for stew haha.

    1. You can try it! I’d watch it though because with this even when cooked fully, the steak stays super tender and you wouldn’t want to lose that aspect.

    2. Hi, we used the stew meat a few times and it came out very yummy 😋… we added lil xtra buyutter in the foil n still came out tender … we also added zucchini n squash

  4. Love this! I added fresh green beans and put it all in the oven. I must say my family loved it. A must try meal.

    1. Thank you for the lovely feedback, Annette! I haven’t added green beans before, but have made it a couple of times with fresh broccoli. I’ll have to try it with the beans next. You just can’t beat a complete meal all cooked in a simple pouch.

  5. I’m wondering if I could do it in individual packs. I’m planning a get-together for 16 and was hoping that each person could take a pack. Do you think the timing would be the same?

    1. Hmm, I’d probably lower the heat a bit since the meat will cook through quicker and consider par-boiling the potatoes then to make sure everything’s done at the same time. Let me know how it goes!
