These steaks, which we last featured in 2019, get a sophisticated finishing touch from 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.
