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.

  6. If cooking on the stovetop: Heat up a grill pan over high heat. Brush with some cooking oil and add steak. Sear steak on both sides. Continue cooking until it reaches desired level of doneness. Medium-rare: 130F / 54C degrees (~3 minutes); Medium: 140F / 60C degrees (~6 minutes); Well-done: 160F / 71C degrees (~10 minutes).

This wasn't as tasty as the other steak with butter recipes but it was good. I loved the parsnips!
