Reviews for Blue Cheese-Crusted Sirloin Steaks
"Just made this recipe for my husband. I had another recipe that I tried at the same time. 2 steaks per recipe. Both of us favored the flavor of this recipe. In fact we placed the crust on the remaining steaks of the recipe that was less favorable. This is a do again!"
"This is a very simple recipe, but good. Now I know why people eat blue cheese with steak! I omitted the onion but otherwise made it as written, and we all liked it."
