This recipe is from the Washington State Beef Commission. It is excellent on sandwiches the next day, so I usually make two!

If I wasn't already in stinky cheese rehab, I'm on my way there now! This was divine! The blue cheese schmear is so amazing -- I've found myself making it for other meats as well.

We loved the marinade (4 hours) and Schmear. I've decided I am not a fan of flank steaks, they are too iffy and rarely turn out as tender as I would like. I cooked on a stovetop grill pan and they did turn out pretty well. An outdoor grill would be best but unfortunately the weather did not cooperate. This marinade & Schmear would be great on any steak. Served with sautéed mushrooms, sautéed haricot verts, baked potatoes and buttered egg noodles for the tater haters. Thanks for posting!

I used NY strips and this was excellent. So nice and easy. I did not grill the steaks but cooked in a cast iron skillet because it was too cold out. Yummy. Loved the schmear. I do again. Thank you. P.S. I had extra schmear left over and used it on toast. So good.
