"A great combination of flavors. Serve with some mashed garlic red potatoes and sweetened green beans for a fabulous special occasion meal. Don't forget to serve a bottle of Cabernet or Zinfandel." — JDVMD

This is my recipe and it was changed by Allrecipes after submission. You need to use course ground dijon mustard. I have never tried regular dijon so I don't know how well that would go. Also, just heat up the grill, don't worry about one side being high and the other medium. I never submitted that. This is one of those recipes that you can just eyeball how much blue cheese and onions you want on each filet.
I didn't care for the taste that the marinade gave my filets...was disappointing, especially after reading all the good reviews. As always, thanks for sharing but I won't make this again.
I rarely cook, but when I do I go out to make a great impression. I decided to use this recipe as a "makeup" dinner after an argument with my long-term girlfriend. Was it a hit? It was a home run, touch down, goal and swoosh all in one. I have often spent well over $100.00 for meals that couldn't touch this one with a ten foot pole. Five stars is not enough!!! I served this with green beans with onions, mushrooms and a light cream sauce and a fully loaded baked potato.
I made this for valentines day dinner for my husband, and we both agreed, this was the BEST steak I have ever fixed!! The marinade was really flavorful! Like some of the others, I used goat cheese instead of blue cheese and it was supberb!! I actually made this on my cast iron indoor grill and put it in my oven broiler to melt the cheese and it turned out great. I will definately be making this again and would highly recommend this to anyone to try.. It was extremely easy too!!
Yum!!! Cooks up great in a pan on the stove as well. Cooked the steak until nearly done, then added the onions into the same skillet to caramelize. Heaped them on top of the steak along with the cheese just long enough for the cheese to melt, and it turned out fantastic!
This is the first review I have ever put on this site, and I had to because this was sooooo good!!! These were the best steaks that we have ever eaten. My husband raved as well. I followed the recipe exactly except for used mozzerella cheese instead of blue cheese (what I had on hand.) We will definetly make these again and again!!
This is the Best Recipe ever!! My mom found this recipe on this board in the summer and we both have made it for all the dinner parties we have had in the past 4 months. Everyone loves it; even the people that don't care for blue cheese (try using a milder blue cheese for those people). Also we have used various cuts of steak - you don't have to use the expensive cut of filet mignon.
The balsmic marinade is so good. Through the whole dinner we kept going mmmm.... mmmm.... We don't like blue cheese so I used mozzerella instead.I can't wait to make it again. Thanks.
