A steak recipe, served with a creamy blue cheese sauce, that is a quick and easy take on an old favourite.

Ingredients

  • 2 thick sirloin steaks
  • 2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsps full-fat crème fraîche
  • 50g creamy blue cheese
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh curly parsley, plus extra to garnish

Method

  1. Place the steaks in a large, non-metallic dish and drizzle over the balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Set aside to marinate for 10 min.
  2. Meanwhile, put the crème fraîche into a bowl, crumble the cheese and stir into the bowl with 1 tsp parsley. Season with black pepper and set aside.
  3. Preheat the grill to high. Heat an ovenproof griddle or frying pan over a high heat. When searing hot, add the steaks and cook for 2 min each side for medium-rare.
  4. Spoon the cheese mixture on top of each steak and pop under the grill for 1-2 min. Divide between 2 plates, scatter with the extra parsley and serve with a mixed salad and some oven chips, if you like.
