These grilled steaks are rubbed down with rosemary and garlic, then served up with a blue cheese and walnut topping. It's 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.  

Ingredients

  • 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

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

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

  3. 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. ​

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