Blue Cheese Steak

An original blue cheese steak recipe for spice up your steak meals!

Here is a different option to the regular old steak - doused in a delicious blue cheese sauce. A note: this sauce is not only for steaks, we can increase the quantity of sauce by uping the ingredients within the same ratio and serving it over pasta as well. 

Blue Cheese Steak: Ingredients List

The ingredients that we are going to need for this recipe are as follows:

  • four ounces of crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 of a cup of fresh butter
  • 3/4 of a glass of dry white wine (in our case a crisp Pinot Grigio is ideal)
  • two teaspoons of whole green pepper corns
  • 1/2 cup of whole cream
  • one tablespoon of finely chopped parsley 
  • one large beef steak (find local, pastured, organic meat!) at least one pound, and one inch thick

Blue Cheese Steak: Cooking Steps

We start by preparing the sauce in a bowl. In a mixer we hit the blue cheese with the fresh butter together until the mixture becomes creamy and smooth in texture. We then keep it separate in a cool place for later. 

In a pot we add the wine with the green pepper corns and start the flame at a medium setting and keep boiling till the wine evaporates and less than a half a cup of liquid remains.

Then we add the heavy cream, and we continue boiling until again half of the half cup of liquid remains. We now lower the flame and add slowly our mixture with the cheese, while with a whisk we mix inside the pot.

We also the finely chopped parsley while whisking. 

We then turn off the flame and remove the pot and cover it to stay warm. 

So now we take a large cast iron frying pan and without olive oil or any butter or fat, we cook the steak that’s already been sprinkled with the desired sea salt and pepper. 

We cook the steak to our preferences, but keep in mind that for the steak to be medium-done it will take us approximately forty five minutes on both sides - starting from when the cast iron cookware is fully hot and ready for cooking - not before. 

Of course we always have the second option of grilling the steak - but its not too efficient for just one steak.

We let the steak cool down for eight to ten minutes after its done, and then we cut it in thin slices and we serve by pouring atop the blue cheese sauce. 

What pairs well with our steak?

This goes well with a side dish of grilled or fried vegetables - like zucchini - and try this recipe paired with a delicious, heavy-bodied, oak-aged Chardonnay

Enjoy!!
