Fancy Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter

I highly recommend this recipe when you feel like making something fancy. This will wow anyone and you wouldn’t believe how easy this recipe is!

Adapted from Food and Wine’s Smoked Paprika-Rubbed Steaks with Valdeón Butter

Ingredients (for 2 servings)

2  steaks  (I had 2 pieces of filet mignon, about 7 oz. each)

2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped

1 tablespoons Spanish smoked paprika

Pinch of cayenne ( I used crushed red chili pepper)

Pinch of dried oregano

2 tablespoons softened butter

Few spring of green onion, finely chopped

1/5 cup olive oil

2 oz. creamy blue cheese

Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Make the marinade. Stir the garlic, paprika, cayenne and oregano; gradually stir in the olive oil. Add some salt and black pepper. Wash the steaks and pet dry them with a paper towel and transfer to a large bowl. Add the marinade and rub the steaks well with it. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

  1. Make the blue cheese butter. In a small bowl, mash the butter with the green onion. Stir in the blue cheese. Scrape the blue cheese butter and transfer to a small tupperware container or a ramekin. Cover and refrigerate for at lease 30 minutes.

  1. If you don’t have a grill, broil the steaks in a pre-heated oven for about 5 minutes on each side.  Let the meat rest for 10 minutes and serve at once  with the blue cheese butter on top. Amazing!!
