Steak with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce recipe page 204-205
The Pioneer Woman: Food From My Frontier
It may not be the prettiest photo ever, I'll admit it. And I'll also admit that a good steak requires NO sauce. This is a delicious steak, from Ozark Natural Foods, but you HAVE to, you NEED to, cook up and smother it with this sauce. It's so good, so perfect with this steak, that you'll find yourself licking the plate clean. Oh wait, that was me. It could be you too.
Now, I know it's hot out, plus we were out of propane, we I cooked the steaks indoors, in my cast iron skillet- you do what you like.
2 Steaks (i used New York Strips but this would be delicious on a fillet)
2 Tablespoons Butter
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 whole Very Large Yellow Onion, Sliced
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 cup Crumbled Blue Cheese
Salt and pepper both sides of the steaks. Add butter to pan or baste if grilling- with 2 tablespoons butter until medium rare (or if you like a little less moo- cook it longer).
Chop then saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter over high heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until dark and caramelized. Reduce heat to simmer and pour in cream. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced by half. Stir in blue cheese until melted. Serve steaks topped with a generous portion of sauce and a little more blue cheese crumbles if you love it like we do.
I served mine up with a ton of fried okra, fried squash and baked potatoes. Wish I would have had some fresh corn. Yum!
