Recipe Name: GRILLED STEAK WITH OLIVE and STILTON CHEESE
4 6 oz beef tenderloin steaks cut 1-1/4-inches thick
1 cup canned beef broth
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots (or chopped onion)
1/2 Cup sliced black or green olives
1/2 Cup port wine
1/4 Cup crumbled Blue Stilton cheese
1 tables butter
1 tables chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspo salt
1/2 teaspo freshly ground black pepper
Heat butter in a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and saute 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add broth and wine and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until sauce has reduced to 1/2 cup, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, season steaks* with salt and pepper. Grill or broil until cooked to desired doneness.
Remove sauce from heat and stir in olives**, cheese and thyme. Arrange steaks on warm plates and top with the sauce.
** I have used garlic stuffed olives for this to add a kick to the flavor.
- I have used this recipe with venison with great results.
