Steak Sauce Blue Cheese

Our goal today is to celebrate the union between steak and blue cheese sauce. Let’s talk about the steak first, then we’ll get into the sauce. In the end, what good is a tasty steak sauce if it’s doused over a bland, rubbery steak? Of course this recipe if also great for burgers!

Some tips for making the perfect steak:

Pat them dry. The best way to remove any extra moisture from steaks is to pat them dry with a paper towel. It helps create that gorgeous caramelized crust you’re looking for, without the risk of excess moisture causing it to steam.
Room temp. Take the steak out of the fridge 30 minutes before it is needed. Otherwise it will cause it to seize up and go chewy.
Seasoning. The only seasoning you need is salt and pepper, so don’t skimp on it.
Piping hot! It is absolutely essential that your pan is smoking hot (literally). As a result, the steak will get a gorgeous crust without overcooking.
Baste. Steaks will stay juicy if they are basted in butter. As well as adding flavor, it also enhances the taste.
Rest. In order to retain its moisture, the steak needs to be rested after it has been fried. The juices will leak out if you slice into it too soon.

The butter will be infused with rosemary, thyme, and garlic as you bast the sauce. Keep the infused butter and steak juices in the pan after removing the steaks. A flavor base will be created for your sauce by doing this.

Listed below are the ingredients for blue cheese sauce

You only need 4 ingredients , along with the pan juices:

– Beef: The beefy flavours of steak are enhanced by using beef stock. This is also great to get rid off any flavour stuck to the pan after you’ve fried the steaks.
– Cream: Sauce’s main component. Be sure the cream is double/heavy and at room temperature (or it may curdle).
– Blue Cheese: You may use any variety of your choice.
– Chives: Blue cheese and chives go well together. Adding a fresh burst of flavor is another benefit!
To ensure the herbs and garlic infuse the sauce as much as possible, I keep the herbs and garlic in until I add the cheese and chives.

How to prepare:

1. Season and oil steaks.
2. Add to smoking hot pan.
3. Flip and add herbs, garlic and butter.
4. Remove steak.
5. Pour in stock and cream.
6. Stir in blue cheese and chives.
