New York Strip Steaks with Blue Cheese Butter

From: Fine Cooking Books

Servings: Serves four


1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature

4 ounces crumbled blue cheese, preferably Maytag or Point Reyes

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or more to taste

For the Steaks:

4 8- to 10-oz. New York strip steaks, 1 to 1-1/2 inches thick

Olive oil

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper


1. To make the butter, blend the butter, blue cheese, garlic, and pepper together in a medium bowl. (A fork is a good tool for doing this. If you wish, you could use a hand mixer.) Pack the butter in a small container and refrigerate until needed. The butter can be made several days in advance and even frozen.

2. Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling. Brush olive oil over both sides of the steaks and season generously with salt and pepper.

3. Oil the grill racks. Preheat your grill using all burners set on high and with the lid closed for 10 to 12 minutes.

4. Place the steaks on the grill, close the lid, and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Add a minute or two to each side for medium; subtract a minute or two from each side for rare. Remove from the grill and let rest for at least 5 minutes. Smear at least a tablespoon of the butter over each steak and serve.
