Recreate the deliciously iconic Steak 'n Shake Frisco Melt at home using your Arteflame grill. This sandwich features juicy beef patties, melty cheese, and a tangy, savory sauce, all grilled to perfection without the need for pots or pans.

Steak 'n Shake Frisco Melt


For the Patties:

  • 1 pound ground beef (80% lean)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

For the Frisco Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
  • 2 tablespoons Russian dressing
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

For the Sandwich:

  • 8 slices of sourdough bread
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened


Preparing the Grill

  1. Fire Up the Grill: Start by firing up your Arteflame grill to get it ready for grilling. Allow the center grill grate to reach over 1,000F and the flat cooktop to heat up evenly.

Preparing the Patties

  1. Shape the Patties: Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and shape them into thin patties, slightly larger than the bread slices. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the Patties: Place the patties on the center grill grate to sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until a golden brown crust forms. Move the patties to the flat cooktop to continue cooking until they are done to your liking. Remove from the grill and set aside.

Preparing the Frisco Sauce

  1. Mix the Sauce: In a small bowl, combine the Thousand Island dressing, Russian dressing, and ketchup. Mix until well blended.

Assembling the Sandwich

  1. Butter the Bread: Spread softened butter on one side of each slice of sourdough bread.
  2. Layer the Sandwich: On the unbuttered side of 4 slices, place one slice of Swiss cheese, one cooked patty, one slice of American cheese, and a generous spoonful of Frisco sauce. Top with the remaining slices of bread, buttered side out.

Grilling the Sandwich

  1. Grill the Sandwiches: Place the assembled sandwiches on the flat cooktop. Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the bread is golden brown and the cheese is melted.


  1. Serve Hot: Cut the sandwiches in half and serve immediately with fries or your favorite side dish.


  • For an extra crispy crust, press down lightly on the sandwiches with a spatula while grilling.
  • Use freshly baked sourdough bread for the best texture and flavor.
  • Adjust the amount of Frisco sauce to your taste preference.


Enjoy the classic taste of a Steak 'n Shake Frisco Melt right in your own kitchen using your Arteflame grill. With perfectly grilled patties, melty cheese, and tangy Frisco sauce, this sandwich is sure to be a hit.

Recipe Variations

  1. Bacon Frisco Melt: Add crispy bacon strips to the sandwich for an extra layer of flavor.
  2. Spicy Frisco Melt: Mix a teaspoon of hot sauce into the Frisco sauce for a spicy kick.
  3. Mushroom Frisco Melt: Sauté mushrooms and add them to the sandwich for an earthy twist.
  4. Turkey Frisco Melt: Substitute ground turkey for the beef patties for a leaner option.
  5. Vegetarian Frisco Melt: Use veggie patties and plant-based cheese to make a vegetarian version.


Best Drink: A classic milkshake or a cold soda.
Best Appetizer: Onion rings with a side of ranch dressing.
Best Dessert: A slice of rich chocolate cake.
