    Manami's Note:

    What a wonderful combination of robust flavors! The tender rib-eye steaks get flavored by the smoky garlic marinade as well as a pungent Spanish blue-cheese butter that melst down the sides!!! It would taste outstanding with any creamy blue but the Valdeon from Picos de Europa adds complexity! Valdeon is a rich, creamy, intensely-flavored cow and goat's milk blue cheese, saltier than Stilton and tamer than Cabrales.Had these fantastic steaks at the Borrero's house over Memorial Day and they were to die for!! Niurka and I found the recipe in F&W Magazine 02/2005 edition. Recipe by Grace Parisi from "Cheese Guru." She let the marinated steaks stay overnight and meld with all the flavors. Neither the marinating time nor the chilling time for the compnd butter have been included in the time for preparing the recipe.
