Query git reflog for all commits to a specific file

Is it possible to check the git reflog for all commits to a specific file.

I made a commit to file foo.txt and now it no longer shows in the git history via

git log foo.txt


I want to search the reflog to find all commits to this file so I can find my "lost" commit.

Try:

git rev-list --all -- foo.txt

This will give you a list of all commits containing foo.txt.
