19 Jan

My beau developed this technique for the taste & tenderness of marinated steak when pressed for time a couple years back and we’ve been using it ever since.

Time: 20 minutes          Serves: 2

Ingredients


  • Steak


  • 2 sirloin steaks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • bleu cheese (cave aged bleu granite – 1 slice)
  • 1 oz tequila
  • 1/2 tsp liquid smoke
  • 2 tsp malt vinegar
  • seasoning Mixture:
  • salt, garlic (granulated), onion (granulated), black pepper, red pepper, dill seed, fennel seed,mustard seed, coriander
  • Mushrooms


  • handful baby bella mushrooms, cut in thirds
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt & pepper to taste

How to make it


  • Place steak in a seal-able container. Pour tequila over top. Rub seasoning mixture into both sides of steak. Pour liquid smoke and malt vinegar over and seal. Refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  • Turn broiler on 425F.
  • Heat skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and butter. Once butter melts place steak in skillet. Sear on each side for 4 minutes.
  • Remove from skillet and place onto broiling pan. Broil for about 6 minutes on each side or until the steak has reached desired doneness.
  • While steaks are broiling, place butter in skillet and heat on low-medium. Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper and sautee for several minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Top steaks with mushrooms, then bleu cheese. Turn off broiler. Remove once cheese has melted.

  • Enjoy!
