Chicago-Style Steak With Bleu Cheese Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Debber

My hubby LOVES bleu cheese, so as soon as I saw this in a little booklet about the Midwest, I knew he'd enjoy steak prepared like this! The original recipe called for 1/2 C. A1 Steak sauce for marinating, but since I didn't have any, I made up my own marinade. I offer here the excellent results.

I only did two steaks, so halved the recipe...then realized that there were no measurements for the marinade! My favorite kind of recipe. I seasoned to my tastes, and marinated for 4 hour refrigerated, taking the steaks out for the last 30 minutes so the flavors would seep into the meat. I made the butter mixture 3 hours ahead of time so that the flavors could mix. Prepared my steaks on the grill to medium rare...delicious! Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lay steak portions in a marinating container or a zippered plastic bag.
  2. Splash several dashes of the marinade into the bag; zip the bag shut and smoush the bag to spread the marinade around.
  3. Allow steaks to marinate for at least 30 minutes (longer is even better).
  4. At the end of the marinating time: either grill the meat or brown in a large HOT frying pan with 2 T. butter or oil.
  5. Cook uncovered for four to five minutes; drizzle marinade over meat, flip meat over; continue cooking for another three to four minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the butter, cheese and onion; set aside.
  7. When meat has attained perfection, swirl the pan juices around, remove the meat to a serving platter; drizzle pan juices over the meat.
  8. Spoon one-fourth of the bleu-butter over each portion; serve immediately.
  9. SERVE WITH: spinach salad with warm bacon dressing, buttered green beans, and sweet potato slices baked with honey and olive oil!
