Grilled Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter


Blue Cheese Butter:

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
One 4-ounce package blue cheese crumbles
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of salt
A few grinds of black pepper


2 strip steaks, 1 inch thick
1 teaspoon vegetable oil ( I prefer Olive OIL)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Preparation Directions

  1. Cream the butter in small bowl, then add the blue cheese, Worcestershire, salt, and pepper and cream again until smooth. Using a 12-inch piece of plastic wrap, spoon out the butter mixture and roll it up like a log, twisting the ends. Freeze the butter until firm or up to 1 month.
  2. Bring the steaks to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Heat a  Grill Pan until smoking hot over high heat on the stove. Carefully brush the pan with the oil.
  3. Season the steaks to taste on both sides with salt and pepper. Carefully place the steaks on the hot grill pan and grill for 2 minutes per side.
  4. Transfer the grill pan to the oven and let finish cooking for 2 minutes.
  5. Remove the pan from the oven and let the steaks rest for 5 minutes before serving with a pat of the blue cheese butter on each steak.
