Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packet Recipe

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Course Main Course
Cuisine American
Servings 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds ribeye steak thinly sliced
  • 2 bell peppers thinly sliced (preferably one red and one green for color)
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 cup shredded provolone cheese
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 large aluminum foil sheets


  • Begin by preparing your ingredients: thinly slice the ribeye steak, bell peppers, onion, and mushrooms.
  • In a bowl, mix the sliced steak with olive oil, garlic powder, salt, and pepper, ensuring the steak is evenly coated.
  • Lay out the aluminum foil sheets and evenly divide the steak, bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms between them.
  • Fold the foil over the ingredients, sealing the edges to create individual packets.
  • Cook the foil packets on a grill over the campfire or directly on the embers for about 10 minutes on each side, being careful when flipping to avoid tearing.
  • Open the foil packets and sprinkle shredded provolone cheese over the contents. Seal the packets back up and return them to the fire for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
  • Serve the Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packets hot, directly from the foil, and enjoy a hearty, flavorful meal by the campfire.


Additional Information
  • For an extra dimension of flavor, consider adding a dash of Worcestershire sauce to the steak marinade.
  • Customize the spice level by adding red pepper flakes to the seasoning mix if desired.
  • Use heavy-duty aluminum foil to ensure the packets hold up well during cooking.
