How to Make a Foil Packet Dinner

First let’s talk about what you will need to make your own tin foil packet dinner. Here are the supplies that you should have on hand:

– heavy duty tinfoil
– tin pie plates (disposable)
– oven mitt

I like to use tin foil pie plates because they are more durable and the sides keep my food from spilling out. They are also easier to handle. An oven mitt is a must as it will help you remove the foil dinner from the fire without risking injury. These packets get HOT!

Steak and Vegetables Campfire Dinner

Ingredients:
– steak of choice, cubed (prepping them in smaller cubes will help them cook quickly)
– whole potatoes, washed, peeled, and sliced moderately thin
– corn (we used canned corn)
– fresh asparagus, rinsed and ends trimmed
– steak seasoning
– salt and pepper
– butter

A note about ingredients:
Slice the potatoes somewhat thin and choose skinnier asparagus spears so they cook quickly. This way, when your steak is done your vegetables will be too.

Directions:

1. Assemble the ingredients in the pie plate as shown below. You can add as little or as much of each item as you wish.

2. Sprinkle the steak with steak seasoning.

3. Sprinkle the vegetables with salt and pepper.

4. Place a butter pat over each item.

5. Cover the dish with foil making sure the sides are secure.

How long do you grill foil dinners?

This is the most common question when it comes to foil packet recipes. There are a few things to consider including the type of food you are grilling and the intensity of your fire.

Whenever I create foil packet dinners I like to make sure the fire is moderate. You don’t want it so low that it isn’t providing heat to your grate, but you also don’t want it so high that you have tall flames inching out of the grate. A medium, steady heat that is providing ample heat to the grate is perfect.

For this steak and vegetables campfire recipe:

1. First, heat the pie tin for 10 minutes before rotating. Rotating the tin will make sure heat is evenly distributed. Grill for another 10 minutes.

2. Remove the top layer of foil and check your ingredients. A fork should be able to easily sink into the potatoes, and your meat should be lightly browned with a warm, light pink inside.

3. Once the top layer has been removed, allow the pie tin to sit on the fire an additional 5 minutes. Remove carefully, enjoy!

Campfire Dinner Ideas

As you can see, the end results are nothing short of delicious. For my pie tin I added lots of extra corn, while my daughter loves to double up on asparagus. That is the nice thing, each family member can do exactly what suits them!

Have a plate ready to set the entire pie tin on prior to eating. Or, transfer the ingredients to a plate and enjoy them without the worry of the pie tin. Do what works for you!

Oh, and don’t forget the steak sauce and ketchup. We love to have some sauce on our steak and ketchup on the roasted potatoes. If I had been thinking ahead, I would have made these old fashioned bacon muffins or homemade apple muffins to bring with us. Dang. Next time!
