Recipe from Bobby Flay
I made this recipe for J as part of our 1-year anniversary dinner. We don’t typically eat steak at home, so this was a special occasion. We went to a local store that sells really good meat – he chose the NY Strip steak.
I didn’t taste this, but he loved it! He said the flavor was really good, and it ended up being perfectly cooked for him. 🙂
1 T kosher salt
1/2 T ground black pepper
1/2 T fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1 NY Strip steak, brought up to room temp
1/4 lb blue cheese, room temp
1 T heavy cream
Parsley, if desired – we skipped this
Preheat grill to high. Mix the salt, pepper and thyme in a bowl.
Brush the steak with oil, then rub the thyme mixture on both sides. Grill steak to desired doneness – it was about 7-8 minutes per side for a medium-rare.
While steak grills, mash the blue cheese into the cream, so that it is chunky but also a bit creamy.
About 1 minute before steak is done, place the blue cheese mixture on top of steak and let it melt very briefly.
Transfer steak to plate and let it rest for about 5 minutes. Garnish with parsley if desired.
