Grilling season is well under way and actually, it never left our house because we grill when there is snow on the ground. Seriously, my husband has been known to be grilling T-bone steaks during a blizzard. An actual blizzard. To the point our neighbors were out shoveling and saying “Oh, boy, does that smell good!”
Now that it’s summer and grilling is the norm, we don’t have fight to keep the flame lit and people driving by don’t think we’re crazy.

I try really hard to have the majority of our meals include a grilled element during the summer months. These Grilled Hobo Dinners bring all of our favorite summer flavors together in one delicious, simple way. You have your meat, your potatoes and your veggies in a convenient foil packet meal! It really doesn’t get easier than that.
How long does it take to cook a hobo dinner?
After you have all your hobo dinner ingredients in their little packets, you just place them on the grill and cook on medium for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 45 minutes to 1 hour until meat done and veggies tender, turning occasionally.

Grilled Hobo Dinner
- 3 Tbsp Worcestershire
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp onion powder
- 1 large round steak, cut into 3 to 4 pieces and tenderized
- 3 medium red potatoes, thinly sliced
- 3 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
- 1 small white onion, thinly sliced
- 1 medium green pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp dried parsley
Preheat grill to medium.
In a small bowl combine Worcestershire, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush both sides of each steak liberally with marinade. Season with salt and pepper.
In a large bowl, combine potatoes, carrots, onion, green pepper, olive oil, parsley, salt and pepper. Toss gently to coat vegetables in oil.
Place each piece of steak on a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil. Divide veggies equally among each sheet. Wrap each sheet of foil tightly around steak and veggies. Wrap each packet again in a second piece of foil.
Place foil packets on grill and cook on medium for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking for 45 minutes to 1 hour until meat done and veggies tender, turning occasionally.
Serves 3 to 4.
Mine get a little crisp on one side, but we enjoy that. If you don’t, reduce the cooking temperature to low and check after 30 minutes.
