Blue Cheese-Stuffed Steaks for Two Recipe

Blue Cheese-Stuffed Steaks for Two Recipe

For a fast, fancy dinner for two, try this tender beef with a mild blue cheese stuffing. Grape tomatoes sauteed in garlic make a colorful and flavorful accompaniment.—Teddy Devico, Warren, New Jersey
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes
  • 2 boneless beef top loin steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, saute garlic in oil until tender. Cover and cook over low heat for 5-7 minutes or until golden and softened. Add tomatoes; cook and stir until tomatoes just begin to burst. Remove from the skillet; set aside and keep warm.
  • 2. Cut a pocket in the thickest part of each steak; fill with blue cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • 3. In the same skillet, cook steaks over medium heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Serve with tomato mixture. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: Top loin steak may be labeled as strip steak, Kansas City steak, New York strip steak, ambassador steak or boneless club steak in your region.
