Blue Cheese Sauce for Steak
This sauce goes beyond a dipping sauce for buffalo wings. It has the elements of a gourmet steak sauce. While the sauce is the star of this recipe, so many folks asked about the feature image of the steak, which was a super easy preparation and here is the recipe.
- Pat a 1-2 pound sirloin steak dry with a paper towel.
- Season the steak with 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper and 2 teaspoons finely minced garlic. Allow it to sit for 1 hour at room temperature.
- Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. If it isn’t well seasoned or not non-stick, add 1-2 teaspoons of a high smoke point oil, just enough to prevent sticking.
- When the pan is hot, add the steak, cooking on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until well browned. This will be rare. Test with an instant meat thermometer to get an exact cook.
- Remove to a cutting board and slice against the grain. With this cut of beef, this might mean you need to rotate the roast and have different size slices.
- Top the slices with crispy fried onions, blue cheese sauce, additional blue cheese crumbles and minced chives or scallions (green onions).
All it takes are some simple ingredients to whip up this sauce.
- Blue cheese crumbles – You can find these in the store already crumbled or you buy a wedge of it and crumble it at home.
- Plain Greek yogurt – We prefer to use full fat Greek yogurt for maximum creaminess but you can use a low fat version if you prefer.
- Heavy cream – Cream helps to create the thick consistency.
- Garlic clove – Grate the garlic finely so that it mixes into the sauce well. Using a microplane helps to make the garlic super fine.
- Worcestershire sauce – This sauce adds depth and umami to the sauce.
- Fresh lemon juice – Lemon gives the sauce a slight touch of citrus.
- Lemon zest – Zest helps to further brighten the sauce.
- Coarse kosher salt – Salt helps to balance all of the flavors.
- Ground black pepper – Grind it fresh or just shake it from the shaker.
