Blackened Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe is similar to an appetizer served at my favorite Italian restaurant. It is a nice change from the usual appetizers and always gets rave reviews! I have used tenderloin in the past, but have found that a good quality top sirloin works very well and is less expensive. Bernaise sauce is a good alternative if you don't like blue cheese."

  1. Season sirloin with blackened seasoning to coat on all sides.
  2. Heat oil in a cast-iron skillet on an outdoor grill until the oil is smoking. Cook steak bites in hot oil in small batches, reheating oil between batches, until slightly crusty, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
  3. Stir cream cheese and evaporated milk together in a saucepan over low heat to melt the cream cheese. Whisk blue cheese crumbles, garlic powder, white pepper, and cayenne pepper into the cream cheese mixture; simmer, stirring frequently, until the blue cheese melts into a smooth sauce, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve blue cheese sauce with the beef bites.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Some spice mixes tend to be salty so you may want to add your seasonings gradually and try a test batch.

I'm going to give this recipe the benefit of the doubt and assume it was the blackening season I used that left an off taste in our mouths (a similar Creole blend I use to blacken tuna). I hate...

We LOVED this! I also skewered the beef and cooked it on the grill. The blue cheese sauce was a great for dipping, although the meat was soooo good, that it really didn't need it. Keep in mind t...

I was looking for a different way to add blue cheese to our bbq'd steaks. This bue cheese topping made my already delicious marinated steak out of this world. On accident I added a whole tsp. O...

I used a cajun spice mix and rubbed it all over the chunks of sirloin. I grilled them on a charcoal grill which always adds to the flavor. The cheese sauce is good, but without a doubt I neede...
