Sirloin with Blue Cheese Butter Recipe

Few meats are as mouthwatering as a juicy, grilled steak. And when you top a tender sirloin with a savory blue cheese and walnut butter, it's mouthwatering and memorable.—Sharon Johnson, Minneapolis, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Grill: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1-3/4 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary, divided
  • 6 large garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 beef top sirloin steaks (6 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the blue cheese, butter, walnuts, parsley and 3/4 teaspoon rosemary. Shape into a 5-in. log; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
  • 2. In a small food processor, combine the garlic cloves, salt, pepper and remaining rosemary. Cover and process until blended. Rub over both sides of steaks.
  • 3. Grill steaks, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 4. Unwrap blue cheese butter; cut two 1/2-in.-slices from log. Place one slice on each steak. Rewrap remaining butter; refrigerate for 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months. Yield: 2 servings.

"Me and almost all my guests found the blue cheese way too over powering. It was good but in very very small quantities. I think using a different cheese would have been better. I did not use near as much rosemary. I felt the recipe was too time consuming and expensive with all the ingredients. I have used store bought (dry rub) marinates that were much better. It wasn't bad by an means but I would probably never make it again unless I tried to alter the recipe."
