Recipe

Steak Fries With Blue Cheese Shallot Butter

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallots
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled creamy blue cheese, such as Maytag Blue
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 (8-ounce) New York strip steaks
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • French Fries

Directions

  • In a bowl, combine the butter, shallots, blue cheese, parsley, and 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Blend until creamy and well mixed. Turn out onto a sheet of plastic or waxed paper and form into a small log, about 1-inch in diameter. Cover and refrigerate until just firm, about 1 hour.
  • Preheat a grill.
  • Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper to taste. Grill to desired temperature, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and transfer to serving plates. Cut the Blue Cheese-Shallot Butter log into 4 pieces, and place one piece on each steak. Serve immediately with the French Fries.
