  2. Combine the ingredients for the seasonings in small bowl or bag and mix.
  3. In a large bowl, add the steak and drizzle with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, juice from 1 lime and Worcestershire sauce. Sprinkle with 2/3 of the seasonings. Toss to coat well. (If time permits, allow to marinate at least 30 minutes or covered in fridge for up to 3 hours for maximum flavor).

  5. Place the steak in the middle of each piece of foil.
  6. Cut the veggies into thin strips and drizzle with olive oil and the remaining 1/3 of the seasoning mix. Divide evenly into each packet, arranging them around the steak.
  7. Fold the foil over the steak and seal to close off the packets.
