Steaks With Roquefort Sauce

Recipe by  

"This recipe came to me when I was doing a Spanish themed party for a Hemingway book. Everyone LOVED the sauce so much I try to make it all the time. However, if you don't like bleu cheese, I wouldn't try it. I also substitute whiskey for the brandy, or any liquor that isn't sweet."

Directions

  1. Melt the butter and heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper, and quickly sear on both sides. Reduce heat to medium, and continue cooking steaks 5 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  2. Pour brandy into the skillet and stir to loosen browned bits from bottom. Stir in cream, and return to a boil. Cook and stir until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Mix cheese into the sauce until melted. Pour over the steaks to serve. Garnish steaks with parsley.

Loved it! I am a fan of blue cheese so this was great. I did add just a half tsp of fresh minced garlic....it was the hit of the evening, even for my husband who normally turns his nose up at blue cheese! Thanks!

Fabulous recipe. The sauce was awesome. I may even double the sauce for the next time I make as it is so delicious. I used just regular blue cheese instead of name brand Roquefort and added fresh mushrooms. This will be a family favorite. I am thinking this sauce would be great on any good cut of meat.

My boyfriend and I have been looking for a gorgonzola sauce recipe similar to the one a highly regarded Philadelphia chef uses but have been unsuccessful. This is very close to the flavor we were searching for!!! However, we did not use brandy because we didn't have any at the time but it was still scrumptuous!!! Now we even use it on pasta. Very tasty!

Wow! This recipe is amazing! Everyone LOVES it! I didn't have Brandy, so I used Sauvignon Blanc like another reviewer suggested. Thanks for a delicious and easy recipe!

Delicious sauce but far too rich for our taste to pour directly over the steak. We served it in small dipping bowls on the side and that was perfect. Not a sauce I'd want to use every time, but delicious for a change of pace.

This recipe is awesome. I am on a low carb diet and getting tired of plain meat and this was so good. I didn't have any brandy so I used wine, Sauvignon Blanc, and it was really good! A must try.

Wow, this was fabulous!!! I didn't have any brandy on hand so I used Merlot. Very, very good. The sauce could have been thicker, perhaps next time I will add a little flour or cornstarch. I used the leftovers on pasta. YUM! Thanks for sharing!
