Blue Cheese Butter Restaurant Style Steak

It's no surprise that restaurants of all kinds of secrets to making our favorite dishes.  One of the best kept secrets is how they cook steak.  Most of them don't grill it!  Yep you read that right, they DON'T grill it!  They sear it on the stove and finish it to desired temp in the oven.


Ingredients:
Blue Cheese Butter
  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Stick of Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Blue Cheese Crumbles
Steakhouse Steak
  • Steak (use your favorite cut)
  • Sea Salt
  • Butter
  • Pepper
To make the Blue Cheese Butter- first soften the butter.  Then combine blue cheese crumbles, butter, and lemon juice in a small food processor.  Form the butter into a ball, place in small bowl, and refrigerate for at least a half hour. 

Steak
You don't want to cook a cold steak.  Season steak with Sea Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper and let rest on the counter for about 20 minutes.
Next, melt a couple tablespoons of butter in a large skillet.  Once with skillet is very hot and butter is melted.  Sear all four sides of the steak for about 2-3 minutes per side.  
 Preheat oven to 400.  Place steaks in baking dish.  Finish steaks in the oven for about 10 minutes for medium.  Remove steaks from oven and place a couple dollops of the blue cheese butter on each steak.  Return steaks to oven for additional 1-2 minutes for butter to melt.  YUM!!
