Steak Doneness Guide

A guide to cooking steak to the doneness you prefer. The best way to ensure you get an accurate reading is using the smart probe that comes with some of the Ninja Foodi Grill models or buying a meat thermometer to check.

  • Rare – 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This just takes a couple of minutes. The steak will have a red center, be soft, and tender.
  • Medium Rare – 130 degrees Fahrenheit. It offers a warm red center with a slight brown crust on the outside. This takes about 5 minutes on Foodi Grill.
  • Medium – 140 degrees Fahrenheit. It offers a slightly pink center with a firmer texture. It will juice a bit of blood when sliced hot. 7 minutes on the Foodi Grill, flipping once.
  • Medium Well – 150 degrees Fahrenheit. This is similar to a medium steak but you will find it is less pink and offers a more crispy outside. It takes around 8 minutes on Foodi Grill.
  • Well Done – 160 degrees Fahrenheit. This steak will have a fully cooked center, a nice crispy coated outside, and will be firmer texture. This takes about 10 minutes on the Foodi Grill.

We have a pellet grill, wood grill, and I never thought I would need an indoor grill. But this has been a game-changer for quick and easy dinners at our house!

How Does Ninja Foodi Steaks Compare To Grilled On Pellet Grill

I was pretty impressed with the turnout of the steaks. I found they offered a nice grilled look, and texture.

The flavor was delicious, and I didn’t notice much difference then cooking them on an outside grill. The one thing you lack is that smoked flavor. But, you could always buy some liquid smoke to add to your steak mixture as it marinades.

Overall, I am glad I bought this kitchen accessory. It has been fun to play with. It was a little pricey but I am happy with the investment.

Ninja Foodi Grill Steak

Yield: 2 steaks
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 12 minutes

Ninja Foodi Grill steak is the ultimate way to cook a steak on an indoor grill. I used a Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning to season my ribeye steaks. You can use any of your favorite steak seasoning on this Ninja Foodi Grill steak recipe.


  • 2 steaks ( I used Ribeye, but you can use any of your favorite steaks)
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tumeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika


  1. Start by mixing up all your steak seasonings in a bowl. This is a Texas Roadhouse steak seasoning copycat recipe. If you want to use a different steak seasoning go ahead.
  2. Once steaks are rubbed down with the spices on all sides, you will wrap or cover and store in the fridge. Store for 30 minutes to 2 hours. The longer you store the more flavor.
  3. Preheat your Ninja Foodi Grill to the highest grill setting and allow it to fully preheat. This takes about 8-12 minutes.
  4. Once the preheat is done take your steaks and place them on the grill.
  5. You will cook your steaks to the doneness you desire.
  6. Once your steaks are done, allow resting on a plate for 5 minutes that is tented in aluminum foil. This will help lock in juices from the steak. Once you have waited serve up your Ninja Foodi grill steaks!
  7. You can also use any other indoor grill and cook with the same directions if you don't have a Ninja Foodi 5 in 1 grill.


Here is a rough guide on timing on cooking steaks in Ninja Foodi Grill. It will vary depending on heat on your grill of course.

  • 5 minutes - medium rare
  • 7 minutes - medium
  • 10 minutes - medium well

You can use any cut of beef you would like. The quality of the steaks is key in the tenderness of your steaks. You will also find the flavor of the steaks vary a bit as well, on what type of cut you use. We tend to like NY strip, KC strips, Ribeye, T-Bone, etc.
