When cooking steak on Blackstone temperature-controlled grill you are practically guaranteed to enjoy meat that’s to your preferred level of doneness, every time! And it’s super easy to change the temp as needed, so everyone can have their steaks cooked just the way they like with no fuss.

Speaking of the flat top, what we absolutely love the most about the Blackstone is that it offers an even cooking surface.

Equipment Used for this Recipe

Cooking Steak on Blackstone Griddle

First, remove the steaks from the refrigerator and pat them dry with paper towels.

Then, sprinkle seasonings on the steak with salt and pepper or your favorite all purpose seasoning.

Next, lightly press the seasonings into the meat or cover it with a plastic wrap.

After that, let the steak rest on a platter while the grill preheats. Preheat the griddle on high for about 10 minutes.

Once the grill is ready, it’s time to cook!

  1. Place the steaks on the griddle surface, then reduce the heat to medium. Sear the steaks for about 2 minutes on each side, flipping and searing the other side until a brown crust forms.

2. Check the internal temperature of the steaks every 1-2 minutes (depending on the thickness of your steaks). Turn the steaks until they reach an internal temperature of 140ºF (or see the tips below for your desired doneness of the meat).

Recipe Tips for the Best Steak

  1. Choose cuts of steak that are well-marbled and 3/4″ – 1″ thick. I recommend Ribeye steaks for this reason. New York strip and Porterhouse are also great terrific options.
  2. Dry the surface of your steak with a paper towel before seasoning them with salt and pepper or all-purpose seasoning. This will help to get a perfect sear and crust for an amazing texture. Let the steaks sit at room temp while your grill preheats.
  3. Preheat your Blackstone on high. Get your griddle smoking hot before adding your meat. The high heat cooking will give your steaks the perfect crust and sear in all those wonderful juices.
  4. To check for doneness, insert a meat thermometer through the side of the steak. The tip of the probe should hit in the center while avoiding bone or fat.
  5. For the perfect temp, remove steaks from heat when the thermometer registers 5°F lower than the desired doneness. The temperature of the steaks will continue to rise after cooking.
  6. Let the steaks rest for 10-15 minutes after pulling them off the griddle before serving. This time is essential for the hot juices to resettle throughout the meat.
