Blackstone Steak Bites

Blackstone Spicy Asian Steak Bites are tender pieces of steak that have been cut into bite-sized cubes before being marinated in a soy, pineapple, and garlic sauce that not only marinates the meat but also becomes the sauce too.

We love steak bites, and the Blackstone makes this dish so quick to make! This is very similar to a teppanyaki or hibachi stir fry that you’d get, but only takes about 10 minutes of active cooking to get there.

What’s the best cut to use for steak bites?

For this hibachi steak recipe, you’ll want to use a high-quality steak. Something that is equitable to what you’d serve if you were grilling a whole steak. I prefer ribeye or New York strip for these. You can also use a flat iron, tenderloin, sirloin, or top sirloin cap as well.

Is it safe to use the steak marinade for the sauce too?

In this case, yes, because we cook it thoroughly post-marinade. This kills off any bad bacteria that are lingering around in the same way that cooking your meat makes it safe to eat.

What kind of vegetables are best?

When we make steak bites we like to do it stir-fry style and serve them with stir-fried vegetables and steamed or fried rice. My favorite vegetables are summer squash like zucchini, asparagus, carrots, and red bell peppers. You can choose your favorites though. 

Just stir fry on the other side of the griddle over medium-high heat, and throw on a heaping helping of Togarashi or Maui Wowee Teriyaki seasoning for good measure.

What kind of rice should you use?

I mentioned rice before and I’m going to mention it again. It is the perfect side for this easy steak dinner. 

We make Instant Pot Basmati Rice a LOT. It is my go-to for rice cooking. 

If we’re not in the mood for plain white rice, you could also try this Pork Fried Rice or my Hibachi Shrimp Fried Rice as well.

What else can you serve with steak bites?

Make it a take-out fake-out night and break out all the stops. 

My egg rolls work best with an assembly line and some helpers to roll them, but they go really quickly after that.

Crispy fried pork wontons are a family favorite. We’ve made a meal out of these before, in fact!

Miso Soup is a great starter that’s also surprisingly easy to throw together.

Hungry for some lo mein? My vegetable yakisoba is a perfect side for this! Hungry for shrimp? I have a shrimp yakisoba too.

Tender pieces of steak are marinated in a soy, pineapple, and garlic sauce that also becomes the sauce for the dish!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes


  • 1 1/2 pounds steak, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 tablespoon oil


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce, or a little more if you like it spicier!
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic


  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup cold water


  1. Combine all the sauce ingredients in a 1-gallon ziplock bag and allow the steak to marinate 36-48 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. When you are ready to cook, first separate the steak from the marinade, place the steak in a bowl and set it aside.
  3. Pour the marinade into a medium saucepan and cook on medium heat until it simmers. Continue cooking for 5 minutes, and then set aside.
  4. Combine 1/2 cup cold water with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and mix until there are no more lumps. Whisk the slurry into the simmering sauce, and continue cooking until it is slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  5. Preheat your flat-top griddle over medium heat. Lay down a bit of oil and cook the steak for 4-5 minutes, max. Don't overcook it!
  6. Remove from the griddle and serve over rice. Drizzle the sauce over the top.

Is 1 cup of soy sauce the correct amount? My husband made this with that amount of regular soy sauce & the steak bites were too salty, even for him, who salts everything. I did not finish mine due to the level of saltiness. The recipe did not state low-sodium soy sauce, so he did not use that. Granted, when using that much, it may go without saying that one should use low-sodium soy sauce. Thoughts? Thank you!

That is the correct amount. You are welcome to use low-sodium or even to half the soy sauce and replace the other half with water if you prefer something a little less bold. It also depends on the brand of soy sauce you use. We tend to use higher end Japanese soy sauces. These are great notes, so I'm going to modify the recipe and make sure those options are out front and visible.

This also makes a LOT of sauce for these bites, and a ton of it doesn't stick to the steak. We drizzle the extra over some rice, but if you were eating more of the sauce that could also make it seem too salty, I imagine.

You may want to change the instructions. Step 1 says to combine ALL ingredients in a ziplock bag. Then in step 4 it says to use the water and corn starch to thicken the reserved marinade. If a person doesn't read ahead they may add the water and corn starch in the bag right away.

Waiting for my elk steak pieces to marinate over night and I will make this on my Blackstone tomorrow when the temperature gets above zero!
