These grilled steaks are rubbed down with rosemary and garlic, then served up with a blue cheese and walnut topping. A truly great way to top off a delicious steak. While this recipe calls for sirloin steaks, you can certainly use smaller rib-eye steaks, strip steaks, or filet mignon.  

What You'll Need

  • 2 top sirloin steaks 
  • 2 ounces/55 g blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL  room temperature butter
  • 1-2  garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL walnuts, toasted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons/15 mL fresh flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL rosemary, chopped
  • 1 1/2/7.5 mL teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2/7.5 mL teaspoon coarse ground black pepper

How to Make It

1. Combine blue cheese, butter, parsley and 1 teaspoon of chopped rosemary. Cover and set aside. Mix well. Add walnuts and mix.

2. Place steaks in a shallow baking dish or onto a plate or cutting board. In a small bowl, combine remaining rosemary, crushed garlic, salt and pepper. If using a bigger cut, use 1 1/4-1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Pat steaks dry with paper towels and apply equal amounts of rosemary-garlic mixture onto both sides.


3. Preheat grill for high heat. Grill steaks the way you like them (see Grilling Steaks). Once steaks are done, remove from grill and allow them to rest for about 5 minutes.  Serve topped with blue cheese-walnut mixture.
