Sirloin with Blue Cheese Butter

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

    2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

    My husband loves blue cheese. this was a perfect and easy recipe for a weeknight. It would also be perfect for a special meal with friends & family.

    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.

    I would use less rosemary. Had a very over powering taste.
