Simple and delicious bleu cheese crusted ribeye steaks

Ingredients:

  • Parsley
  • Garlic
  • Butter
  • Olive oil
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Bleu cheese
  • Steaks
  • Salt
  • Bread crumbs

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 325*.
  • Remove steaks from fridge a little while before cooking.  This ensures even cooking.
  • Add 1/2 cup bread crumbs to a bowl with a bit of parsley, rosemary and thyme.  Add bleu cheese and mix together with fork.  I try to break up the really large pieces of bleu cheese while doing this.
  • Coat steaks in olive oil then salt generously (the salt helps with the browning).
  • Add oil to pan, bring to temp over medium-high heat.
  • Sear steaks on both sides.
  • Place a pad of butter on each steak and insert into the oven for a few minutes (usually about 10* prior to your ideal finish temp about 125* for med-rare).  In this specific case, I sautéed some minced garlic in a pan with butter and poured that over each steak.
  • Turn oven to broil.
  • Cover steaks in bread crumb/bleu cheese mixture, packing it on well.
  • Insert steaks into the oven under the broiler.  Keep an eye on the steaks and remove when the bleu cheese crust has turned nice and brown.
  • Let the meat rest on a board for about 5 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
