Herbed Blue Cheese Steaks Recipe

Fresh herbs and tangy cheese top my tenderloin steaks. I’ve also used pork tenderloin, replacing the basil and tarragon with sage.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/4 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh basil or 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced fresh oregano or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 3/4 teaspoon minced chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon or 1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 4 beef tenderloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 3/4 cup Cognac or additional reduced-sodium beef broth


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the blue cheese, bread crumbs, 1 teaspoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, basil, oregano, dill, chives and tarragon; set aside.
  • 2. Sprinkle steaks with salt and remaining pepper. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook steaks in remaining oil for 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan; top with blue cheese mixture.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 12-18 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 4. Meanwhile, in the same skillet, saute onion until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Gradually stir in broth and Cognac, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan. Cook until liquid is reduced by half. Serve with steaks. Yield: 4 servings.
