Ninja Woodfire Grilled T-Bone Steaks

Few things are as tasty and as fabulous as a perfectly grilled T-Bone Steak, and when you do them on the Ninja Woodfire Grill, they’re ready in a jiffy. With a touch of smoke and seared-in juiciness, t-bones are pretty nearly perfect. Ready to feast on beefy goodness? Here’s how to make the perfect t-bone on your Ninja outdoor grill!

T-bones are generally considered one of the best cuts of steak. What is a T-bone steak? A T-bone includes both a piece of the tenderloin and the strip loin, so it’s a steak with the best of both worlds. With its signature T-shaped bone, these distinctive steaks are meaty, have some tasty fat on them, and are delicious.

T-bones are also big and expensive. With a chunk of tenderloin on them, of course they’re going to be pricy. I buy them when they’re on sale and then vacuum seal them to lock in all the flavor.

How to buy a T-bone Steak

Not all T-bone steaks are equal. In fact, some of these steaks aren’t worth the money at all.

When buying a T-bone, look for an ample portion of tenderloin. That’s the smaller bit of meat on the other side of the bone. Some steaks have hardly any tenderloin – dig through the meat packages and pick the ones with the biggest portions of tenderloin. Also look for good marbling – those are the thin strands of fat running through the meat.

I also look for some fat. Fat is flavor and on a grilled steak flavor is what it’s all about!

Buy the steaks on sale and save some money. I pretty much never buy meat at regular price. I just can’t do it.

Ingredients

How To Make T-Bone Steaks on the Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill

  1. Preheat your Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill on Grill, High, and set the time for 20 minutes. You won’t need that long to cook them.
  2. Press the Woodfire Smoke button if you’d like to add a kiss of smoke (optional).
  3. Season the steaks liberally with the Montreal Steak Seasoning or your favorite steak rub. Don’t forget to do both sides!
  4. When the grill is ready, add the steaks to the grill and close the lid. Grill for 2-3 minutes to get a sear, then flip and grill on the other side until the steak reaches 125-F for medium rare.
  5. Remove the steaks and let them rest for about 10 minutes before serving or cutting. The carryover cooking will bring these steaks up to medium rare.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • The carryover cooking on this grill is crazy! It cooks so hot and so fast that you should always pull your meat off about 10-degrees below your cooking preference, and the carryover cooking will do the rest. Especially on thinner cuts like pork chops and steaks.
  • These steaks cook fast! Depending on the thickness, they could be ready in under 5 minutes of cooking time so don’t walk away!
  • I don’t recommend cooking super thin steaks on the Ninja. Anything less than 1/3-inch thick is going to overcook.

Make It A Meal

Wondering what to serve with Ninja Woodfire Grill T-Bone Steaks? There are sooo many dishes you could pair it with, including my favorite corn ribs, or while the Ninja is out grab the air fryer basket and make smashed potatoes.

Storage

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. You could freeze the leftover steak. To do this, vacuum seal it and freeze for up to 3 months, or just wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then put it into a freezer-safe plastic bag and freeze for up to a month.
