Steak with Blue Cheese Butter
and roasted fingerling potatoes / green beans

Active: 30 minTotal: 50 min

Add a flavorful finishing touch to tonight's steaks with a savory compound butter made with blue cheese.
Smarts: Compound butters can be frozen for up to a few months. Use them to add flavor to finished meats (as in this recipe) or to add richness to soup, roasted vegetables, or toast.
Smarts: Tonight's vegetables should be roasted in the oven, but feel free to fire up the grill as well if you prefer to cook your steaks that way.

Prep

  1. Marinate steak - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven or grill heating while steak marinates.) Tenderize steak with a fork and combine with soy sauce, vinegar, and lemon juice. Marinate for at least 20 minutes and up to a day. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  2. Make blue cheese butter - Melt butter in the microwave. Stir in crumbled blue cheese and thyme. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Green Beans - Trim green beans. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  4. Chives / Potatoes - Prep as directed.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Toss potatoes with first portion of olive oil and season with some salt and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan and roast until tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Toss green beans with second portion of olive oil and add to sheet pan with potatoes after potatoes have been cooking for 10 minutes.
  4. While vegetables roast, remove steak from marinade (discard marinade). Season generously with some salt and pepper.
  5. If cooking on a grill: Heat up grill to 500F / 260C. Clean grates and brush with some cooking oil. Add steak to heated grill. Grill steak for ~3 minutes on each side with the cover closed.

What's not to love about steak and butter!? I added sautéed mushrooms. It was an easy meal.

I really love the blue cheese butter. I usually like steak with just salt & pepper but the blue cheese butter is the exception.
