Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until smoking. Season steaks to taste with salt and pepper, then sear on both sides in hot oil. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking until steaks reach desired doneness, about 6 minutes for medium-rare. Remove steaks from skillet and keep warm.

  • Stir in minced onion and cook until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with paprika and cook for an additional minute. Increase heat to medium-high, then pour in wine. Simmer until the wine has reduced by half, then add the beef broth, return to a simmer, and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the crumbled blue cheese until just melted.

  • To serve, pour the sauce over the steaks and sprinkle with chopped parsley.

We loved this. We found the calabres cheese at the Spanish Table and while we were there picked up a couple bottles of Spanish red (a Rioja and a Ribera del Duero). They were both good matches. But we kept gravitating toward the Rioja which had been too much wine the night before with the Pollo al Ajillo (also on Allrecipes) -- the Ribera was the better match with the chicken. Read More

This was delicious and I will definitely make it again. The missing star is because the sauce was very runny but I will play around with it next time. This is a great special occasion meal. Read More

This meal was full of flavor and talk about tender meat! I love the idea of adding cheese to the sauce to give the sauce an additional layer of flavor. My kudos to the originator of this recipe. Read More

This is possibly the best recipe I've ever taken from this website. I started making it about 5 months ago and my family absolutely loves it. It's a regular meal in our home. I think the sauce is a great unique taste which I love. I will definitely continue making this recipe and sharing it with our friends and family! Thanks Pippymoe! Read More
