Fold the foil over and crimp the edges to seal. Once the grill is hot, place the steaks and foil packet on. Cook until the steaks are done, flipping as needed. Cover the steaks for a few minutes off the grill once done and fix a nice little salad on your plate. Take care when opening the foil packet, the steam is hot.
