Garlic steak & cheesy bacon potato hash foil packs are two favourites cooked in one pack! no pans to wash up afterwards!
Cheesy potato hash –> tender-juicy-charred steak –> grilled OR cooked how ever you like in garlic butter for the ULTIMATE flavour combination! And if thats’s not enough, it all gets topped with bacon. CRISPY BACON. I’m so excited to share these extremely versatile Steak & Cheesy Bacon Potato Hash Foil Packs! Recipe caters for both medium and well-done steaks.
Good quality cuts of meat yield the best results that stay tender during cooking.
- Whole eye fillet
- Rib eye
- Strip (or Porterhouse)
This method works better for well done steaks. If you prefer medium rare or medium, I don’t recommend this option.
pictured below is what you will do for juicy well-done steak pieces.
You’re going to slice it into 2-inch rounds that are at least 1-inch thick to guarantee even cooking with the potatoes.
this picture shown below is what you will do for a beautiful piece of medium-rare steak.
Cut your fillet into 4-inch long and 3-inch thick pieces (as shown below). The bigger and thicker you cut them, the juicier the steak will be once its done. For rarer steaks, cut them bigger (5-inch pieces and 4-inch thick).
Make sure you use baby Yukon Gold and cut them into 1-inch pieces to ensure they cook through. Yukon gold potatoes are the best for these foil packs. Any other potato, I suggest par boiling them for 5-10 minutes depending on what potato you are using.
Topping with bacon is optional.
