Variations Ideas

  • Change Meat – This recipe can be made other types of meat. Make with pork, chicken, or ground beef.

  • Taco Shells – We like to make with smaller corn tortillas but you can also make with flour tortillas.

How to Make Street Tacos on Blackstone Griddle

  • Step 1 – Preheat the Blackstone griddle over high heat at 450 degrees. You want the griddle to be hot to get a good sear on the steaks.
  • Step 2 – Thinly slice the steak and chop into bite site pieces.
  • Step 3 – Spread the oil out onto the Blackstone grill. I used vegetable oil but you can easily use any oil with a high smoke point. Avocado oil, coconut oil or canola oil all work great in this recipe.
  • Step 4 – Once the oil is hot, place the sliced steak on the Blackstone grill on top of the oil. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes and do not move them to get a good sear on the steak.
  • Step 5 – Use a spatula to flip the steaks onto a separate section of the grill. Then cook the steaks for 2-3 more minutes to sear the opposite side of the steaks.
  • Step 6 – Then top the steak with 2 Tbsp of the butter and allow it to melt into the steak mixture.
