  • 3/4 lbs red potatoes
  • 1 ½ lbs sirloin steak
  • 2 stalks carrots
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning
  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 tsp parsley chopped (garnish)


  • Pre-heat grill to medium heat.
  • Wash and cube red potatoes into 1-inch cubes, no need to peel. Peel and slice carrots into 1/4-inch slices. Cube steak into 2-3 inch pieces and try to keep them around the same size so they cook at the same rate.
  • Add potatoes to boiling water, cook for 4-5 minutes, or until they are slightly soft and can be pierced into with a fork. Remove from heat.
  • Bring cooked potatoes, raw carrots, raw steak pieces into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add olive oil, garlic, Tony Chachere’s Original Creole Seasoning to bowl. Use a spatula to mix well so that everything is evenly covered with oil and seasonings.
  • Prepare four foil packets about ~5-inch wide in diameter. Fill and divide steak, potatoes and carrots evenly among the four foil packs. Drop a few dollops of butter to the top of each of the foil pack. Use another piece of foil to cover the top of each foil pack loosely.
  • Place foil packs directly over the fire on the grill for 10-12 minutes to get a medium/medium well steak, remove from oven and check doneness. Check at the 8-minute mark and continue cooking for a few minutes if it has not reached your desired doneness. Different grills will require different cook time so adjust accordingly. If using meat thermometer, see ‘Recipe Notes’ for internal temperature of various levels of doneness.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve. Enjoy!



Note 1: This recipe can also be cooked over a campfire or in the oven. For oven method, bake for 12-15 minutes at 425 ℉. Check at the 12-minute mark for doneness especially if you like your steaks rarer. If potatoes are not boiled prior to grilling, cut them into smaller pieces (1/2-inch cube) so that it is cooked faster. If steak pieces are cooked before potatoes are soft, remove steak and let the potatoes continue to cook until it is soft and done. Note 2: International temperature for rare steak: 135℉ ; medium steak: 145℉; medium well steak: 155℉.
