Blackstone Street Tacos Recipe:

We love cooking on our Blackstone Griddle. These Street Tacos are one of our favorites. These copycat food truck tacos are filled with tender flank steak and seasoned to perfection.

These street tacos are a quick and easy dinner idea. Cooking the flank steak on the griddle is perfect for my large family. We then heat the mini corn tortillas on the griddle and then fill them with the seasoned steak.

Taco night is our favorite night. We top these tacos with fresh cilantro and chopped onion. These tacos are perfect for a weeknight meal or to feed a crowd.

What are Street Tacos?

Traditional Mexican tacos are called street tacos. The meat is stuffed into a corn tortilla and topped with cilantro, salsa and onions. In a traditional street tacos, there are no lettuce, cheese or tomatoes.

Ingredients needed - flank steak, vegetable oil, salt and pepper, fresh limes, butter, corn tortillas, onion, cilantro

Ingredients:

  • Flank Steak
  • Vegetable Oil 
  • Salt 
  • Pepper 
  • Fresh Limes 
  • Butter, divided
  • Street Taco Size Corn Tortillas 
  • Onion, chopped 
  • Cilantro, finely chopped 

How to Make Street Tacos on Blackstone Griddle:

  • 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.
  • Thinly slice the steak and chop into bite site pieces.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Then top the steak with 2 Tbsp of the butter and allow it to melt into the steak mixture.
