This is the only way that I prepare steaks, now. Absolutely delicious!
- 1 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup red wine (merlot is nice in this)
- 1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 4 rib eye steaks
- 1⁄2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- Combine 1st four ingredients in a ziploc bag or shallow pan.
- Add steaks to marinade.
- Marinate for 1-2 hours, turning steaks in marinade frequently.
- Grill steaks to desire doneness.
- I grill for 3-5 minutes on each side for medium-rare/medium doneness.
- While steaks are grilling, combine vinegar and bleu cheese to a creamy consistency.
- Serve sauce as a condiment to steaks.
Used a high quality Balsamic and a cheap bottle or cab sav for the marinade and marinated for 6 hours in the fridge... steak was perfect. It would have been over marinated if it hadn't have been in the fridge though. The bleu cheese sauce was to die for. I didn't realize that I was running out of balsamic on the marinade so I had to use only aout 1/4 cup of Balsamic and added a splash of the wine and a splash of red wine vinegar. I also added about 2 tsp of mayo just to give a little bit of a creaminess to the sauce. I free poured the bleu cheese because I adore it and knew I wanted it to shine. Overall an amazing and simple recipe!! Thanks :) Boyfriend adored it as well and he is a huge foodie so his praise is worth it's weight in gold.
Used excellent quality Balsamic and marinated for 2 hrs. DH not a big vinegar fan so I cut back on the amount in sauce to half and added equal amount of sour cream to give a smooth texture to the sauce. Dh though the steak was good but not great and loved the sauce.
Everyone enjoyed this recipe! Made "as is" with a good quality balsamic vinegar. Marinated the meat for about 2 hours. The sauce was very thin and I had to put in the food processor to blend into a sauce. My husband really liked it but I think next time I will cut back on the vinegar and up the amount of blue cheese for a thicker sauce. Thanks for sharing - we will be having this one again!
