Blackstone Cowboy Stir-Fry

Jump to Recipe

I don’t usually make recipes that require a super specialized piece of cooking equipment (except maybe slow cookers), but I am so in love with my Blackstone griddle, I can’t help it. For the most part the other things I have made thus far can be made on the stove top, however this Blackstone Cowboy Stir-Fry really does the need the wide open flat space of the griddle. It is a total game changer for making meals like this for the whole family at once. By the by – this is not an ad for Blackstone products at all – my hubs got me one for my birthday this year and I just love it so very much.

So I am calling this cowboy stir-fry to be a bit comical. Its very akin to a hash dish, but a little different in the make up and preparation. Keeping the potatoes in thin rounds helps them cook quickly and get those crispy spots while still staying soft. It also helps it cook at a good rate with the rest of the veggies and sausage, especially the onions.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can adjust the types of veggies you use for it. I went with bell pepper, zucchini, onions and potatoes because of the time of year (summer time). You could do a different squash (summer would be yum). You could also do other veggies like green beans, broccoli, cauliflower, tomatoes, and the list goes on and on. My only caution would be to make sure you are cutting things to be relatively the same side and then adding them with the first set or the second set.

This is a super hearty dish so may not need an extras. Having said that, after I sat down to eat this, I immediately thought – “It needs a fried egg!”. It would have been just the right richness. But it was still amazing after it. I had thought it might need cheese, but I really didn’t NEED cheese – not that it wouldn’t have been good. I did sprinkle mine with tabasco, one kid went with sriracha and another tapitio (and yes we have a small hot sauce obsession in our home lol).

  1. We almost bought a Blackstone griddle for my husband last year but wasn’t sure if he’d love it as much as he loves his traditional grill or not. This looks delicious.

    1. It took me a while to decide on it too. But so worth it. I have it right next to my grill and I can make just about anything in the backyard now. It’s amazing.

  2. YUM, looks so good! Thanks so much for linking up at the Unlimited Link Party 78. Pinned.

    What a great recipe Estelle – I know my husband would love this! Congrats – you are one of our features at this week’s Inspire Me Monday party at Create With Joy!

  4. Well, I plan to try this tonight, only I don’t have zucchini so I might use red potatoes and sweet potatoes instead of potatoes and zucchini.
