Stilton Sauce for a Nice Steak

Sirloin steak, medium rare please, and can I have a Stilton sauce to go with it?
Thank you very much!
 Actually, I prefer rump steak - which is odd as I usually like anything that's more expensive!


You will need:
25g butter
25g flour
100g Stilton - diced
150ml full fat milk
100ml double cream
salt and black pepper to taste

How to do it: 
Melt the butter in a medium sized saucepan.  Using a wooden spoon, add in the flour and stir continuously till it's nice and smooth.  
Cook whilst stirring, for one minute.   
**If you don't cook the flour your sauce will be lumpy.
Remove the pan from the heat and stir in a little at a time the milk and the cream until it's all been used up.
Keep stirring - a balloon whisk would be good here.  
Cook for a minute or so, still whisking and put in the Stilton.
Keep stirring with a wooden spoon until the cheese has melted and you have a nice sauce.  
Add a little more milk if you it's too thick.
Season with pepper and have a taste - you shouldn't need much if any salt because the cheese is quite salty - just see what you think
Remove it from the heat and put to one side till your steak is done - just heat it up again, stirring all the while.   
Serve with whatever takes your fancy - but steak is just the thing.

  4. I love blue cheese sauce for steak, but I've also seen a butter that sat in the fridge between two slices of strong blue cheese and then was melted on its own. Still butter, but with a hint of aroma from a blue cheese. Worth trying, recomended by Heston Blumenthal. :)))
