If you are looking for a special steak for your sweetie, look no further. This takes less than thirty minutes from start to finish; less if you choose to broil instead of BBQ. Flavorful and easy, this steak is tough to beat. I serve this with brown-and-serve sourdough bread or rolls. If you're really hungry, crumble some additional bacon and add a baked potato. Add candles and a bottle of full bodied red wine (like a cabernet from the Alexander Valley) for a romantic evening.

Directions

  • Prepare an outdoor grill using charcoal briquettes stacked 2 to 3 deep. Season the steaks on both sides with steak seasoning.

  • While the charcoal heats up, fry the bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels. Leave grease in the pan.

  • When the charcoal is covered with gray ashes, put the steaks on the grill. Cook for 12 minutes, turning once, or to your desired degree of doneness.

  • While the steaks are cooking, stir the butter, Worcestershire sauce and mustard into the bacon grease. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until butter has melted. Add the red bell pepper and mushrooms; cook and stir until tender.

  • To serve, place steaks onto plates. Top with bacon, then blue cheese and then the vegetables. Serve immediately.

Great recipe! We didn't have any peppers or mushrooms so I took the advice of another reviewer and substituted onions. I caramelized them in the pan I used for the bacon and the worchesterschire/dijon gave them an almost onion-ring flavor. It was too cold to grill so I ended up cooking the steaks in the same pan with the onions and just piled them up on top. The blue cheese gave this recipe a nice touch of flair. As we were eating dinner my husband said "The website called this dish 'Men Love this Steak.' Well they were right." Mission accomplished. Read More

Another new favorite for the boyfriend. For the most part I followed the recipe. Instead of steak seasoning I just rubbed in some salt pepper garlic and basil into the steaks. I knew the sauce was going to have a strong flavor and I didn't want the steak seasoning to compete. Due to the freezing temps outside I cooked the steaks inside in the bacon fat leftover from the frying. When the steaks were done I removed them (kept them warm in the oven) and sautéed some onions (don't like mushrooms) in the bacon fat/steak juices. I proceeded to make the sauce as specified. Though I forgot to add the butter the sauce didn't seem to miss it. This recipe is a definite keeper. Read More

I have a terrible habit of ruining steak so I was nervous about using this recipe. My husband was coming home from a long business trip and I wanted to bless him so I tried this one. Wow!!! It was the best meal I've made in a long time. We all loved it!!! I used feta instead of blu since none of us like blu and the feta really topped this off! I agree with the writer Men love this Steak! Read More

Thanks for sharing this awesome recipie! I did have to make a few substitutions to please my husband! Used onions instead of the peppers and mushrooms- and it was fantastic! He begged for the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. I also added a grill butter I made with basil and garlic. Thanks again for the recipe!! Will make many more times! Read More

Great recipe. I normally give 4 stars unless it makes me say "WOW!" This was really good. My husband does not like veggies or bleu cheese yet he scarfed it down without any hesitation. That says 5 stars to me! Lots of flavor. Read More

It's true. After just one bite both my son and my husband declared this to be the best steak I've ever made! Like the other reviewers I used onions instead of mushrooms and peppers feta instead of bleu cheese and I added a splash of red wine to the sauce just because I like it with red meat. This recipe is a keeper for sure! Read More

Very good steak. I made this tonight with some refried beans and sliced avacado. My husband is hispanic so he like his beans. I doubled the veggies because I made four steaks. Turned out great. My husband said it was one of the best steaks he has ever had. Thanks for the recipe and I will be making this all the time! Read More
