What kind of steak is the best?

You have so many options! You can really use any steak you like. Some of our favorites are sirloin, rib eye, and tri tip.

Can I add cheese?

Yes! There’s nothing better than cheesy potatoes. Use your favorite shredded cheese and add it to your pack as soon as it’s done cooking. The wrap will be warm and hot, so be careful when adding the cheese.

Beef and Potato Tips:

The secret to juicy, tender meat and potatoes is not to overcook the meat. Not an easy task when you’re trying to get your potatoes to cook perfectly! Make sure you cut the potatoes small enough and cook them half-cooked before adding them to the package to ensure the beef and potatoes finish cooking at the same time.

Vegetarian options:

You can really add any of your favorite veggies to your foil packet dinners. If you’re adding root vegetables, be sure to parboil them before adding them to the pack. Some of our favorite vegetable additions are sliced ​​mushrooms, bell pepper strips, and onion rings.

Spice Grade:

Jalapenos add a delightful heat to this dinner, but you can always remove the jalapeno chops and seeds for less heat.

How do I know when the beef is done?

There is a wide range of doneness, depending on how you like your meat cooked. Cooked rare starts at 120°F and goes up to 170°F when done well. Most of us like meat somewhere in between these two extremes. Cook to your desired doneness.

Campfire Instructions:

If you plan on cooking the wraps over a campfire, be sure to chop the potatoes small. Whether it’s wood or coal, check your package after 15 minutes. Continue to cook until the potatoes are tender and the beef is your desired doneness.

Note in advance:

You can prepare the wraps up to 24 hours in advance and store them in the refrigerator until ready to cook. If you plan on camping and cooking by the fire, simply prepare your package before leaving and transport it in a cooler with ice.
