The rich and tangy flavor of blue cheese combined with butter adds a luxurious twist to a perfectly grilled steak. This recipe provides a simple way to elevate your steak game, making it perfect for special occasions or just a decadent weeknight dinner.


For the Blue Cheese Butter:

  1. 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
  3. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  5. Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the Steak:

  1. 2 steaks (ribeye, sirloin, or your choice of cut)
  2. Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to season
  3. 2 tbsp olive oil or canola oil
  4. Optional: Fresh rosemary or thyme sprigs for added aroma


  1. Prepare the Blue Cheese Butter:
    • In a mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, crumbled blue cheese, minced garlic, and chopped parsley.
    • Season with salt and black pepper and mix until well combined.
    • Place the mixture on a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper and shape it into a log.
    • Wrap and refrigerate until firm (this can be done a day in advance).
  2. Prepare and Grill the Steak:
    • Take the steaks out of the refrigerator about 20-30 minutes before cooking to bring them to room temperature. This helps in even cooking.
    • Preheat your grill or skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Rub both sides of the steaks with oil and season generously with salt and black pepper.
    • If using, place rosemary or thyme sprigs on the grill or skillet just before the steak for added flavor.
    • Place the steaks on the grill or skillet and cook to your desired level of doneness (about 4-5 minutes per side for medium-rare, depending on thickness).
    • Once done, remove the steaks from the heat and let them rest for about 5 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute.
  3. Serve with Blue Cheese Butter:
    • Slice the blue cheese butter log into rounds.
    • Place a round of the blue cheese butter on top of each hot steak, letting it melt slightly from the steak’s residual heat.
    • Serve immediately with your choice of side dishes.

This Steak with Blue Cheese Butter offers a harmonious blend of rich and savory flavors, making it an instant hit for steak and cheese lovers alike. Enjoy!
