Directions See How It's Made
- Season steaks with seasoned salt and black pepper, and arrange in a single layer in a large baking dish.
- In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and rosemary.
- Pour mixture over filets, and turn to coat. Marinate for up to 30 minutes.
- While you are marinating the meat, melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat.
- Cook onion slices in butter until soft, then stir in sugar. Continue cooking until onions are caramelized. Set aside.
- Preheat grill for high heat on one side, and medium heat on the other side.
- Lightly oil the grill grate. Place steaks on the hot side of the grill, and cook for 10 minutes, turning once.
- When the steaks are almost done, move to the cooler side of the grill.
- Top each filet with a quarter of the caramelized onions and blue cheese. Close the lid, and continue cooking until the cheese is melted.
