Blackened Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

Rated as 4.8 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.

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...

Delicious! My favorite way to eat steak is in bite size pieces, covered in seasoning. We often only eat half of a steak and have extra, so I will cube the extra, usually cooked med rare and sea...

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...
