  • Total Time
    Prep: 25 min. Grill: 10 min.
  • Makes
    20 appetizers (3/4 cup sauce)


  • 2 boneless beef top loin steaks (8 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 ounces Stilton cheese, cubed


  • Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Grill steaks, covered, over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove meat to a cutting board and keep warm.
  • In a small saucepan, bring wine to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Add cream. Bring to a gentle boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, until thickened, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat. Add sour cream and cheese; stir until cheese is melted.
  • Cut steaks into 1-in. cubes; skewer with toothpicks. Serve with sauce.
Editor's Notes: 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. You may substitute 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese for the Stilton cheese.

    I was very leery of the Stilton cheese after removing it from the package and getting the distinct smell of "feet". But this sauce is smooth and wonderful, we ate it with steaks. It would also complement steamed broccoli or cauliflower wonderfully!
