Adding a sauce to a steak turns it into a restaurant quality meal. Try this Stilton steak sauce next time you have steak.
Steak with a sauce is one of my favourite meals, but is something that is so expensive in restaurants. If you get your timings right it is very easy to make at home, perfect for a special dinner, birthday or celebration. I love a richly flavoured creamy sauce with my steak and this Stilton, or any other blue cheese sauce, is perfect, as well as quick and easy to make at home. My Stilton steak sauce is also delicious with chicken or as a dip for chips or potato wedges.
I like to cook my steak on a searing hot griddle pan, the trick is to oil the steak not the pan, and not move it round whilst cooking. Flip your steak once, then when it is cooked pop it onto a warmed plate, covered with a piece of foil for a few minutes to rest. By allowing it to rest all the juice will be reabsorbed into the meat leaving you with a lovely juicy steak.
Since I have been working with Iceland, I have been consistently impressed with the quality and price of their food. The frozen meat in their luxury range is excellent quality at very keen prices. Modern methods of freezing mean that the there is no change at all to the quality or texture of the meat. The Iceland Gaucho Rump steak above cost just £4 and had an excellent really beefy flavour, and was beautifully tender. Served with the Stilton steak sauce, fried gnocchi (I used the butter that came with the steak), broccoli the steak was more then enough for 2 of us. With a bottle of Australian Shiraz, also from Iceland, the meal cost just over £12.50 with plenty of Stilton leftover for another day.
