Perfectly seared steaks in a quick, easy and tasty blue cheese pan sauce!

ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 pound steak (such as rib eye, t-bone, striploin, etc.)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 shallot, finely diced (or 1/4 cup onion)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
directions
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the steaks, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste, and sear until lightly browned on both sides and cooked to the desired level of doneness (about 2-4 minutes per side for medium-rare), before setting aside.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium, add the butter and let it melt and start to foam before adding the shallots and garlic and cooking until fragrant, about a minute.
  3. Add the beef broth and deglaze the pan by scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon as the broth sizzles.
  4. Add the cream, bring to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer, add the cheese and cook until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens a bit, about 3-5 minutes.
  5. Add the worcestershire sauce, season with salt to taste and enjoy the steak smothered in the blue cheese sauce!

Option: Add 1 tablespoon lemon juice!
Option: Replace some or all of the broth with a dry white wine.
Note: The amount of blue cheese to use is dependent on the strength of the cheese that you use and how much blue cheese flavour that you want. Start by adding a bit and add more until you get it to where you like it!
