Blackened Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

Blackened Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

"This recipe is similar to an appetizer served at my favorite Italian restaurant. It is a nice change from the usual appetizers and always gets rave reviews! I have used tenderloin in the past, but have found that a good quality top sirloin works very well and is less expensive. Bernaise sauce is a good alternative if you don't like blue cheese."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Season sirloin with blackened seasoning to coat on all sides.
  2. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet on an outdoor grill until the oil is smoking. Cook steak bites in hot oil in small batches, reheating oil between batches, until slightly crusty, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  3. Stir cream cheese and evaporated milk together in a saucepan over low heat to melt the cream cheese. Whisk blue cheese crumbles, garlic powder, white pepper, and cayenne pepper into the cream cheese mixture; simmer, stirring frequently, until the blue cheese melts into a smooth sauce, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve blue cheese sauce with the beef bites.

I have made a similar recipe to this for years with great results and this one is a winner too. I did not want to cook the beef in oil so I skewered the seasoned meat and cooked them directly on...

I used a cajun spice mix and rubbed it all over the chunks of sirloin. I grilled them on a charcoal grill which always adds to the flavor. The cheese sauce is good, but without a doubt I neede...
