Beef Steaks with Blue Cheese

My guests often ask for this winning recipe and are surprised at how simple it is to prepare.
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 20 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (1-1/2 inches thick and 8 ounces each)
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 slices white bread, crusts removed and cut into cubes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Place meat on broiler pan. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until meat is browned and cooked to desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the blue cheese and butter; set aside. In a skillet, saute bread cubes in oil until golden brown. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Top steaks with blue cheese mixture and sprinkle with croutons; broil 1 minute longer or until cheese is slightly melted.
Health tip: Serving size counts when considering nutrition information. Eight-ounce steaks are generous, as is the amount of blue cheese topping. Make this recipe work for you by using four- or six-ounce steaks and just half of the topping mixture instead.
