    Sharon123's Note:

    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.

      Oh my was this good! DH has to have his portion of 'cow' every weekend and this seemed like a lovely dinner for a Saturday night. I made as directed and couldn't be happier with this dish! My asparagus cooked to crisp tender in just 5 minutes. The only embellishment I made was to add a bit more crumbled blue cheese just prior to serving. I loved the pan sauce and will use it for other cuts of meat as well. I think it would be very nice with pork chops. This will be made many times! Thanks so much for sharing it Sharon.

      We made this as directed but used a grill pan to sear the meat, then added those juices to a saute' pan to make the sauce. The asparagus needed more like 15 minutes to steam but still remained crisp. All the flavors in this dish went extremely well together. Definitely company worthy, definitely elegant. Thank you so much Sharon, for posting this recipe. :)

      Who am I to argue with the judges of the Georgia Beef Cook-Off? They're right: this is superb. The sauce combines well w/ the asparagus and the thyme-rubbed tenderloin steaks. And easy too--in every way a great dinner for company!
