Blue Cheese Crusted Steaks

I don't have a photo of this new concoction, but next time I make it, I'll take one and load it up then. I also haven't measured the ingredients, which I'll also do next time, but have had several people ask me for the recipe so you'll get it without exact measurements right now.

A few weeks ago, we were at Whole Foods, trying to decide what to have for dinner. I was hanging out with the cheese monger, trying different blues. Kelly wanted a steak so he got a N.Y. strip and I got my cheese and we came home. I ate the cheese and decided to crust his steak with some of it, as well. Following is the deliciousness it became.

Moody blue cheese (get the Moody blue - it makes a huge difference)
Bread crumbs
N.Y. strip steak

Season the steak with salt, pepper, and garlic salt on both sides. Let sit for 15 minutes. Then cook or grill the steak as you like it (about four minutes per side for medium rare). In a small bowl, crumble enough blue cheese that it looks like it will cover the top of the steak. Then pour in enough bread crumbs to mix with the blue cheese, but only about 1/4-1/2 the amount of the cheese. You just want enough to hold the cheese together. Then press it gently into the top of the steak. Under a broiler, melt the cheese on the steak. Just long enough that it begins to brown. Serve immediately.


  1. This sounds yummy for my tummy. Since I am a non-cooker I will submit the recipe to my boyfriend in hopes he makes it for me!

  2. LOL Nasreen! I hope it makes it for you, too!
