Frequently Asked Questions

Can I add extra seasonings?

Yep, add any seasonings you like! The Blackstone Steakhouse seasoning is my favorite.

Do I have to let the steak rest?

Yes! Allowing the steak to rest gives it time to let the juices redistribute. If you eat it right away, it’s not going to be as juicy.

How do I know when steak is done?

For best results, use a meat thermometer. For temperatures, check out my cooking chart above.
