Ingredients
Roquefort Butter:
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick); softened
  • 2 ounces Roquefort blue cheese; crumbled (1/3 Cup) (or other blue cheese)
  • 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
Steaks:
  • 4 New York strip steaks, 1" thick; (about 3/4 pound each)
  • extra-virgin olive oil; as needed
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • freshly-ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 lemon wedges
Instructions
To make the Roquefort Butter:
  1. In a small bowl combine all the butter ingredients. With the back of a fork mash the butter mixture together until evenly distributed. Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
To make the steaks:
  1. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. Lightly brush or spray both sides of the steaks with olive oil. Season them with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Grill over direct high heat until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees for medium-rare, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time.
  3. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for about 5 minutes.
  4. Serve warm with the butter smeared over the top and lemon wedges served on the side.
Notes
This recipe yields 4 servings.

Wine Recommendation: There are many wine choices here, but Merlot outshines the rest.

Beer Recommendation: Grab an assertive American pale ale with a creamy texture.

Comments: Butter is great on a steak but butter blended with blue cheese and garlic takes steak to the level of America's great steakhouses. Prepare to dine.
