Steaks With Roquefort Sauce

Rated as 4.68 out of 5 Stars

"This recipe came to me when I was doing a Spanish themed party for a Hemingway book. Everyone LOVED the sauce so much I try to make it all the time. However, if you don't like bleu cheese, I wouldn't try it. I also substitute whiskey for the brandy, or any liquor that isn't sweet."

  1. Melt the butter and heat the oil in a skillet over high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper, and quickly sear on both sides. Reduce heat to medium, and continue cooking steaks 5 minutes on each side, or to desired doneness. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  2. Pour brandy into the skillet and stir to loosen browned bits from bottom. Stir in cream, and return to a boil. Cook and stir until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Mix cheese into the sauce until melted. Pour over the steaks to serve. Garnish steaks with parsley.

This recipe is awesome. I am on a low carb diet and getting tired of plain meat and this was so good. I didn't have any brandy so I used wine, Sauvignon Blanc, and it was really good! A must ...

Wow, this was fabulous!!! I didn't have any brandy on hand so I used Merlot. Very, very good. The sauce could have been thicker, perhaps next time I will add a little flour or cornstarch. I used...

Wow! This recipe is amazing! Everyone LOVES it! I didn't have Brandy, so I used Sauvignon Blanc like another reviewer suggested. Thanks for a delicious and easy recipe!

Delicious sauce but far too rich for our taste to pour directly over the steak. We served it in small dipping bowls on the side and that was perfect. Not a sauce I'd want to use every time, but...

Fantastic! I also cooked some sliced mushrooms in the pan before adding the sauce ingredients. The mushrooms add a lot to the flavor and the texture. A splash of red wine is nice, too! Thanks!

steaks were cooked perfectly, the sauce was great, ALTHO I did have a hard time thickening it...had to use cornstarch at the last minute. but this was delicious.
