Cooked to perfection on a flat top griddle, this meal is guaranteed to impress your loved ones and guests alike.
If there’s ever a time when serving steak is a bad idea, it’s definitely a mystery to me. From steak and mushrooms to Blackstone griddle steak, seared flank steak, and air fryer steak bites, my family’s always overjoyed when they know steak is on the menu. However, there’s one cut of steak that stands out for special occasions: filet mignon.
Once you’ve experienced filet mignon on the Blackstone griddle, it might become your go-to method. The tender steak, combined with the creamy horseradish sauce, creates a match made in culinary heaven. Trust me, this steak recipe is a must-try – I guarantee you’ll love it as much as I do!
Ingredients That Make a Difference
- Filet Mignon: This is the most tender cut of steak available, known for its mild flavor and buttery texture. Cut from the tenderloin, a muscle that doesn’t work very hard, this steak is incredibly tender with less marbling compared to ribeyes.
- Salt: I personally prefer sea salt when making filet on the Blackstone. You can use your favorite salt, such as kosher salt. I recommend using one teaspoon of salt per pound of steak.
- Pepper: Freshly ground peppercorns add a delightful spicy flavor to the steak. However, pre-ground pepper works well too if that’s what you have.
- Sour Cream: Full-fat sour cream offers the best taste and texture for the horseradish cream.
- Horseradish: Prepared horseradish, made from grated horseradish root and vinegar, is a key ingredient. Note that it’s different from the horseradish sauce you find in a jar.
- Seasonings: To finish off the horseradish cream, add salt and pepper. Feel free to experiment with other seasonings like garlic powder, onion powder, or paprika.
Cooking Steps That Make It Perfect
For detailed instructions on cooking filet mignon on the Blackstone, refer to the recipe card at the end of this article.
First, pat the steaks dry with clean paper towels, season them on all sides with salt and pepper, and let them rest at room temperature for 1 hour or refrigerate overnight.
Allow the steaks to rest for 5-10 minutes before serving with the horseradish cream.
Pro Tips to Enhance Your Culinary Experience
- Bring the steak to room temperature: Before cooking filet mignon on the Blackstone griddle, take the steak out of the refrigerator for about an hour. This ensures even cooking throughout.
- Generously season: Sprinkle your steak with salt and pepper or your preferred steak seasoning. Play around with flavors to discover your favorite combination!
- Time for some flavor infusion: If you have time, salt the steak for at least one hour or even overnight before cooking. This lets the salt penetrate the steak fibers, enhancing the flavor and juiciness.
- Give your steak some space: When cooking multiple steaks on a Blackstone, make sure not to overcrowd the griddle. Overcrowding will lead to steaming instead of a good sear on the outside.
- Let it rest: Once you remove the steaks from heat, cover them with foil and allow them to rest for 5 minutes before serving. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout each piece, maximizing juiciness and flavor. I usually take my filet off the Blackstone griddle when it is 5°F below my desired temperature.
- Adjust cooking time for desired doneness: If you prefer your steak beyond medium-rare, sear it at high heat for a few minutes on each side. Then, reduce the heat and cook until it reaches your preferred doneness.
Elevate Your Steak with Perfect Side Dishes
Blackstone griddle filet mignon is undeniably the star of the show, but the right side dishes can take the meal to the next level. Consider serving these tenderloin steaks with a refreshing green salad, Blackstone smashed potatoes, griddled asparagus, or Blackstone potatoes.
Crockpot mashed potatoes, slow cooker polenta, creamed spinach with cream cheese, and Instant Pot green beans also complement the steak beautifully. If horseradish isn’t your cup of tea, you can pair this steak with compound butter. The garlic butter variation, in particular, enhances the flavors of the dish.
FAQs: Answering Your Burning Questions
Are steaks good on a Blackstone flat-top grill?
Absolutely! Steaks are perfect for a Blackstone flat-top grill. The high heat of the griddle ensures a superb crust on the outside while keeping the steak juicy and tender inside.
How hot should my Blackstone Griddle be to cook a steak?
Preheat your Blackstone Griddle to medium-high heat (approximately 400°F) before adding oil or butter. This helps create a nice sear without burning your steak. Once heated, adjust the heat slightly if needed, as maintaining the right temperature is crucial for evenly cooked and perfectly seared steaks every time!
What are the advantages of a griddle for cooking steak?
Griddles provide an even cooking surface, resulting in more consistent results compared to regular skillets or grills. Additionally, the flat and wide surface allows you to cook multiple steaks simultaneously without overcrowding them, ensuring each steak is cooked to perfection. With easy heat control, you can achieve your desired level of doneness every time.
Can I make this recipe without a flat top grill?
Certainly! You can use a cast iron skillet on the stove or cook the steak on your grill. If you have a Ninja Foodi Grill, that works too. Just remember to have a meat thermometer handy to ensure you reach your ideal internal temperature.
