If you need something really special but don’t want to spend all day over the stove or what feels like your whole paycheck on a dinner out at a nice steakhouse, read on. Our Blackstone Filet Mignon with Lobster is the ultimate fancy at-home date night meal.
Blackstone Filet Mignon and Lobster
This epic Blackstone Surf & Turf is going to feel fancy enough for the most special of anniversaries or celebrations, but is easy enough even for beginner cooks to put together successfully. Gas griddles are a perfect way to cook this, even for a crowd, and serve everyone at the same time.
If you are feeling really fancy, order up some American Wagyu from Snake River Farms.

How to make Blackstone Filet Mignon
Want to know how complicated (or not) this recipe is before you get too deep into the drool-fest? Read on! This is a brief overview of the recipe steps. Make sure when you are cooking to use the full recipe at the bottom of the post!
Preheat your griddle
Don’t skimp on this part! Proper preheating is essential to successful griddling! Medium-high heat is about perfect. You want the griddle surface to be between 450°-500°.
Season your steak and lobster
Don’t be shy!
About 3 minutes per side for the steak, and 2 minutes per side for the lobster. Use an instant-read thermometer like the ThermaPen IR for the best results! That’s got a probe thermometer and an IR surface temp gun that’s perfect for griddles!

Filet Mignon with Lobster Recipe FAQ
Can you make this if you don’t have a gas griddle?
Absolutely! You could make this on a regular grill, or even inside in a cast iron pan on the stove if you don’t have a Blackstone or other type of griddle yet! We love our gas griddles, but other methods of cooking would work just as well here.
How do you store leftover steak and lobster?
I do not suggest storing leftovers of this dish. It is much better served fresh. If you do happen to go a little overboard, you could definitely use the steak in the morning for some steak and eggs or a nice steak sandwich.
