A few hints when making Keto Meat and Vegetable Foil Packets :
Heavy duty aluminum foil is a must. You just do not want the foil to rip open and spill your dinner in the fire.
Be so careful when opening the packets. The steam will burn!
Slice meat for quicker cooking, especially chicken or pork. Small pieces cook faster than large pieces.
One serving packets definitely cook quicker than ones that are very full.
This is a do-it-your-way recipe so there are no measurements. It would be impossible to give them or calculate macros.

Cooking the Keto Meat and Vegetable Foil Packets
If baking in the oven, put foil packets into an oven safe dish to catch any possible drippings. Usually it stays clean but if there are drips, it is much easier to clean the dish than the oven.
Bake in preheated oven at 400* for 1 hour for chicken or pork, 20 minutes for salmon, 10 minutes for shrimp or thin fish, and 10-20 for beef depending on how you like it.
These times may vary with how much meat and how large of pieces are in there.
If grilling, place on bottom rack of grill and cover. Grill for about 10-20 minutes, flipping once or twice.
Different meats of varying thicknesses will require different cooking times. Chicken or pork will take the longest, salmon a medium time and steak, thin fish or shrimp the least amount of time.
They can also be cooked over an open fire on a grate. They will not be covered so a longer cooking time will be needed.
Be VERY CAREFUL opening the foil packet when done cooking. The escaping steam can burn!
