Steak Grilled With Blue Cheese, Onion And Tomato
4 servings

This is a true case of the sum being better than the parts. A nice steak is always good but here the added flavors of the blue cheese and tomatoes really make this sing yummmmmmmm.


You’ll Need:

4 New York Strip or 2 large Porterhouse steaks
Fresh ground black pepper
2 Tlbs olive oil
1 large Vidalia onion, sliced for rings
2 Tlbs fresh thyme (1 if dry)
2 beefsteak tomatoes, sliced 1/4-inch thick
Sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Imported blue cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley (no stems), chopped
½ cup balsamic vinaigrette:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed on a cutting board with the side of a knife, or more to taste
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Here’s What To Do:

In a small stainless steel or glass bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard, sugar, salt, pepper, and garlic until the sugar and salt are dissolved. While continuing to whisk, add the olive oil in a thin, steady stream until emulsified. Taste and adjust the seasoning, if necessary.
Preheat grill to medium high. Season the steaks liberally on both sides with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Place olive oil and sliced onions in skillet over low heat; season with more salt, fresh ground black pepper and thyme. Cook onions for approximately 12 minutes or until onions are soft and lightly brown. (You can toss them on the grill if you choose). Reserve onions and keep warm. Using tongs, place steaks on grill and sear 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare (leave on grill longer for desired temperature). To assemble meal: Place each steak on plate (if using Porterhouse steaks cut each steak into serving portions). Cover with cooked onions, followed by tomato slices. Season the tomatoes with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. Place crumbled blue cheese and chopped parsley on top of tomato slices. Ladle 2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette over top of each steak; serve.
