Very assertively-flavored steak recipe that I learned about 12 years ago when I was learning to cook to impress my now-husband. Adapted from Betty Crocker's New International Cookbook. This Spanish-influenced recipe can tend to be somewhat on the salty side, so be careful to use unsalted butter to saute the steaks, and a good-quality, not-overly-salty blue cheese in the sauce. Serve simply, with a lightly-dressed salad, good crusty bread, and a nice red wine.

  2. Stir frequently until cheese melts.
  3. Remove from heat and keep warm.
  4. In large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat, and cook steaks to your liking, turning only once.
  5. (About 4- 5 minutes per side will result in steak done to about medium, depending on your cook top).
  6. Sprinkle pepper over steaks, remove from skillet and keep warm.
  7. Add water to skillet and heat to boiling, stirring constantly to loosen browned bits.
  8. Boil 2 minutes, then stir pan juices into cheese mixture.
