Blackened Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

Recipe by  

"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."

  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 the grill. Costco had some prime grade sirloin and it was perfect for this. Blue cheese sauce was delish too. Yummy! Thanks for sharing!

I'm going to give this recipe the benefit of the doubt and assume it was the blackening season I used that left an off taste in our mouths (a similar Creole blend I use to blacken tuna). I hate the smell of fried foods in our home, so we elected to grill these outside. The sauce came together in no time, but I'd probably nuke it in short intervals next time (and I used 1% milk, rather than opening a can of evaporated). THANKS, for the recipe!

We LOVED this! I also skewered the beef and cooked it on the grill. The blue cheese sauce was a great for dipping, although the meat was soooo good, that it really didn't need it. Keep in mind that the sauce thickens up really fast, so make it right when you are ready to eat, or you could reheat it if needed. I will def be making this again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
