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

Active: 45 Total: 65

Add a flavorful finishing touch to tonight's steaks with a savory compound butter made with blue cheese. We last featured this meal in 2019.
Smarts 1: 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 2: 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 (just choose grill or stovetop for your cooking method).

This made a very good change from the usual recipes on here. I don't like blue cheese so I improvised a herb butter instead. I'm not sure roasting green beans is my favourite way of cooking them.

Can’t go wrong with steak and blue cheese butter. We had baby fingerlings from our garden.

Marinade is so tasty! Opted to just serve with blue cheese. Used new potatoes. Potatoes and beans cooked perfectly. Served with a side salad.
