Stilton is a very lovely English blue-veined cheese and, in my opinion, it's worth hunting for it to make this recipe. However, bleu cheese or almost any other blue-veined cheese may be used as a substitute. I would caution against using Gorgonzola cheese because its very strong flavour may be overpowering.
- 2 (6 ounce) sirloin steaks or 2 (6 ounce) filet mignon steaks
- 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons sherry wine
- 4 fluid ounces heavy cream
- 4 ounces Stilton cheese, crumbled
- 1 tablespoon chopped chives
- Grill or broil the steaks to your liking.
- Melt butter in saucepan and cook onion until soft.
- Add sherry and boil to reduce slightly.
- Add cream and boil for 1 minute.
- Stir in the Stilton cheese and chives.
- Serve steaks with sauce, baby red potatoes and fresh or frozen green beans.
This recipe for the suace was taste tested by numerous friends and family--everyone agrees it's fabulous! Note, however, that when made just as it reads, it can really stretch easily to 4-5 servings because a little goes a long way.
We have made the stilton sauce several times now. It is great on hamburgers.
Mmmm ... Very good sauce! Just what I have been looking for to have w/ steak. I was dissapointed when I ran out of steak..lol. Could not find the Stilton cheese so had to use regular bleu cheese. If you are only going to make this for one or two people I suggest you cut the recipe in half. I plan to use my left overs tomorrow for lunch over a lettuce wedge.
