Beef au Bleu
- serves 4
This beef dish is perfect for a fancy sit down dinner.
2 lb(s) sirloin steak, about 2 inches thick.
1 pinch Salt and pepper
a little olive oil
½ lb(s) blue cheese
½ cup cream
1. Move the oven rack to the top rungs, and heat the oven to broil for a good ten minutes. Season the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and rub all over with a little olive oil. Set the meat in a cast iron pan and broil 4 to 6 minutes per side, or until done to your liking. Remove to a carving board, cover with foil, and let rest 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, crumble the cheese into a saucepan, pour over the cream, and gently heat to melt. Carve the meat and arrange on a serving platter. Pour over the juices (if you feel there is too much, you can reduce them first.) Spoon over a little of the sauce and pour the rest into a sauce jug for passing around the table.
