Looking for an easy keto dinner idea? This is a foil packet recipe featuring top sirloin steak with garlic and butter. Easy to make and absolutely delicious, you need to try this recipe!
Following keto can be challenging when it comes to making food for the whole family. Keto is typically a diet with high fat and low carb. That means that a lot of the keto meals have a lot of cheese, oils, and meat. But sadly that means no carbs like potatoes and bread. Goodbye mashed potatoes and gravy. That can be a struggle for carb lovers like me.
However, when it comes to focusing on healthy eating, these are the choices I have to make. When it comes to making family dinners, it needs to not only be healthy but it has to be tasty or else the family isn’t going to eat it. As a bonus, it is easy to prepare.
What to Serve with Garlic Steak
When you make this garlic steak, you can make it only with the steak or you can add vegetables. I like to add cauliflower, broccoli, and asparagus in the foil packets. You can also so serve these side dishes to make it a complete meal. These are the perfect combination of low carb side dishes that are also family-friendly.
- Keto Cauliflower Mac and Cheese
- Loaded Cauliflower Bake
- Low Carb Zoodles
- Loaded Cauliflower Bake
- Use the cauliflower rice recipe from Garlic Butter Chicken with Parmesan Cauliflower Rice
Variations to Grilling Steak Foil Packets
While I like to keep the seasoning simple with just a little rosemary, basil, and thyme with lots of garlic, you can add in whatever seasoning you like on your steak.
Vegetables: You can use whatever vegetables that you like with your diet. If you are not following keto or low carb, you can use different vegetables than someone who is eating low carb. For those who are not following keto, you can potatoes, corn, and carrots. No matter what diet you are following, whatever vegetables you decide to use, make sure to use fresh not frozen vegetables. Frozen vegetables will become mushy and unappetizing.
Is this an Easy Grilling Steak Recipe
When it comes to grilling steak, this recipe can not be easier. Since it is made in a foil packet, the steak cooks evenly and easily. I have found that using a foil packet is one of the easiest ways for grilling steak. The steak does not dry out like many grilling recipes.
Does this Use a Beef Steak Marinade
This steak comes out so flavorful and tender thanks to the ingredients and the foil packets. It doesn’t call for a beef steak marinade because it isn’t needed. However, you can certainly make a beef steak marinade to make this steak even more flavorful.
How to Make a Foil Packet
When you are making the foil packet, you start with a sheet of aluminum foil. Place the ingredients in the center. After all of the ingredients into the foil packet, you pull up the sides. After bringing the sides together, simply roll the foil down sealing the seams. It is important to close the foil together but you do not want to roll the foil down to far. Rolling it tightly and close will cause the vegetables to not steam properly.
How Long does Garlic Butter Steak Last?
If you have leftovers of this garlic butter steak you can store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This is a great recipe for making ahead and having on hand for lunch or dinner for the next few days. Sometimes people have a hard finding meals that are good to heat up and eat. That is why many people choose foods that are not the best choice because they do not have something easy to grab. Make up extra foil packets and have an easy dinner or lunch.
Ingredients in Garlic Butter Steak Foil Packets Recipe
- Top sirloin steak cut into bite sized pieces

How To Make Keto Garlic and Herb Steak Packets:
Season bite-sized pieces of steak with rosemary, basil, thyme and salt, and pepper. Sear steak on both sides in a pan.

Add garlic to the mixture.
Spoon veggies into the foil packets.
Add seared steak on top of veggies. Wrap foil packet, leaving room for air. Bake. Serve hot.
One note about making the foil packets – don’t roll them tightly. You want there to be extra room to allow the veggies to steam while cooking.

- 2 lbs. Top sirloin steak cut into bite sized pieces
- 2 tbsp. Olive oil
- 2 c. Cauliflower florets
- 4 c. Broccoli florets
- 12 Spears of asparagus cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 Onion sliced
- 1 tsp. Basil
- 1 tsp. Thyme
- 1 tsp. Rosemary
- 4 Cloves garlic minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Aluminum foil
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Prep your meat and vegetables. Cut the florets off of the heads of cauliflower and broccoli, and cut the asparagus spears into bite sized pieces. You want to use fresh vegetables and not frozen. Cut the sirloin steak into bite sized pieces as well.
- Place the sirloin steak pieces into a mixing bowl, and add in the rosemary, basil and thyme.
- Mix in salt and pepper to taste, and toss the meat well to incorporate the seasoning.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in the sirloin steak in a single layer, and quickly sear it on all sides. Remove it from the heat.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus, and onion.
- Pour a tablespoon of olive oil over the vegetables, and add salt and pepper to taste. Mix the vegetables together to coat them all well.
- Place a large sheet of aluminum foil onto a flat surface. Place a handful or two of the vegetables onto the center of the foil.
- Top the vegetables with some of the seared meat. Top with more salt and pepper to taste if desired.
- Fold the two horizontal sides of the aluminum foil up, and roll them closed a few times at the top. Fold in the side of the foil to form a closed packet. This will allow your meal to steam when in the oven.
- Leave some room for air in the packets, to not roll them too tightly.
- Repeat steps 8-10 with the remaining packets, until you have six packets completed.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, remove the packets from the oven, open and serve.
One note about making the foil packets - don't roll them tightly. You want there to be extra room to allow the veggies to steam while cooking.
