Forget those pricey steakhouses! You can have tender, juicy, savory steaks right in your very own kitchen with these fabulous recipes! And what's better than a relaxing meal at home? (Provided you don't set off the smoke alarms, causing the fire department to pay you a siren-filled visit while neighbors gather on their lawns to gossip.)
This recipe makes amazingly great tasting, melt in your mouth, tenderloin! The onions and the sauce are a perfect accompaniment. I got this recipe from Kraft’s Food and Family Quarterly Magazine (Spring 2005). The recipe calls for Kraft products, however, I used all Organic products from various companies and it was perfect. These steaks can be served with small baked Sweet Potatoes and Simple Sautéed Asparagus, Peppers & Onions (Sautéed Confetti Asparagus) for a perfect meal!
The perfect solution to the "blues"! A heavenly dish made with blue cheese! This dish won second place in the 1993 Georgia Beef Cookoff! Credit goes to Rebecca Gulledge of Marietta, Ga.
Blue cheese is believed to have been discovered by accident. The caves (in France) that early cheeses were aged in shared the properties of being temperature and moisture controlled environments, as well as being favorable to many varieties of mold. Roquefort is said to have been invented in 1070 AD. Gorgonzola is one of the oldest known blue cheeses, having been created around 879 AD, though it is said that it did not actually contain blue-veins until around the 11th century. Stilton from England is a relatively new addition occurring sometime in the 18th century. Many varieties of blue cheese that originated subsequently were an attempt to fill the demand for Roquefort-style cheeses that were prohibitive either due to cost or politics.
This is how I sauté mushrooms and onions to serve with grilled steak. I've been doing it this way for years and never really thought of it as a recipe until today when my husband mentioned that it was the best he'd ever had. If you have leftovers, make an omelet with them with smoked swiss cheese and serve with hot, steaming bowls of tomato soup with basil. Just trust me on that.
Simple and elegant, this dish is a sure winner. Whether serving an intimate dinner for two or a number of guests, the delicious flavors of madiera and blue cheese are a perfect choice with the beef tenderloin. Serve with Potato Gratin and Pan Steamed Lemon Asparagus for an unbeatable combination.
