This steak was so wonderful good - cooking time will depend on how thick your serving of Steak is. The pepper was a bit overwhelming for me, but for hubby it was just right !

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine the blue cheese and parsley and use a wooden spoon to combine, cover and refrigerate.
  3. Spread the cracked peppercorns onto a plate. Put the meat dry and roll in the peppercorns to coat on all sides.
  4. Place a cast-iron skillet or heavy-bottomed ovenproof saute pan over moderately high heat. ( do not use nonstick cooking spray or any type of oil to prepare the pan).
  5. Once hot, place steaks into the dry pan and sear the top and bottom of each steak. 1 to 2 minutes per side, to sear the steak. Do not attempt to pull meat from pan - it will release easily once completely seared. If there is any resistance it is not done yet.
  6. Place 1 Tablespoon of blue cheese mixture on top of each steak and transfer the pan to the oven. Roast 6 to 7 minutes for rare, 7 to 8 minutes for medium.
  7. NOTE: To crack peppercorns pour desired amount into a sturdy plastic bag and then spread them flat on a towel to protect counter top and pound with flat side of mallet, rolling pen, or bottom of heavy pan into a coarse "grind".
