Seared Rib Eye Steaks with Roquefort Butter

Author: Canadian Living

The robust flavour of Roquefort cheese goes a long way in this butter, which forms a quick sauce as it melts over the hot steaks. If beef rib eye medallions are hard to find, use any other grilling steak.

Ingredients

  • 6 rib eye grilling medallions 1-1/2 inches (4 cm) thick
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Roquefort Butter:
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Roquefort cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Method

Roquefort Butter: In bowl, mash together Roquefort cheese, butter, shallot, parsley and lemon rind and juice. Scrape onto plastic wrap and roll up tightly to form 2-inch (5 cm) wide log; twist ends to seal. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 3 weeks; thaw in refrigerator for 30 minutes.)

Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. In large skillet or grill pan, heat oil over medium-high heat; fry steaks, turning once, until medium-rare, about 5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness. Transfer to platter; tent with foil and let stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to plates; slice Roquefort Butter into rounds and place on steaks.
