Hello fellow work-at-home moms! Would you like an idea for dinner that takes ten minutes to make and will have your husband thinking you are a rock star? Introducing . . . steak with blue cheese sauce!
You’ll need a thick steak for each of you. Like this.
This recipe is just for two people, and I tend to make this for a romantic dinner, rather than to serve it as a family meal. You’ll also need some oregano, salt and pepper, as well as sour cream and blue cheese.
Alright, getting on to what to do! Heat up a lightly-oiled skillet until it just starts to smoke. It’s important that the pan is hot.
Put the steaks on, and sprinkle the salt, pepper and herbs.
Steaks usually taste better rare, but if you have an aversion to it, you can cook your steak longer. For this steak, rare would be 2-3 minutes on one side and 1-2 minutes on the other. Once you turn the steaks over, add salt to the other side as well.
While the steak is cooking, put 2 tablespoons of blue cheese and 2 tablespoons of sour cream in a bowl. Microwave it for 45 seconds to a minute. After that, your sauce is ready!
Spoon your sauce over your steak, and serve it hot.
See how the juice from the steak blends with the sauce? You can mop that up with bread if you really want to be in culinary paradise.
Really, truly, you cannot go wrong with this. Unless you’re a vegetarian.
You can serve the steak with green beans, or oven French fries, or bread, followed by a green salad. If you are a wine drinker, you serve this with red wine, room temperature.
You’ll love the no-fuss approach.
And your husband will love you.
