Stilton or Blue Cheese Sauce for Steak

Sirloin steak, medium rare for me please, and I'll have a nice Stilton sauce to go with it 😋
Of course you can use any blue cheese for this. My husband loves Roquefort but it really does have a very strong taste and personally, I'm not a fan and prefer Stilton.

Steak with Stilton Sauce

Actually, I prefer rump steak - which is odd as I usually like anything that's more expensive! I;m not too sure what blue cheese you can get say in the States or Australia for example; do let me know by leaving a comment below; I'm really interested to know.
Talking of Stilton I made a really nice Beef, Ale and Stilton Pie which was delicious and now that I've reminded myself I will have to make it again soon.

Stilton Sauce

Stilton sauce is perfect with steak but you can of course use any blue cheese for this.

ingredients:


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

instructions


  1. 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 leave to cool for a minute before stirring in a little at a time the milk and the cream until it's all been used up. If you don't leave it to cool your sauce will split; it'll taste the same but really won't look nice! 

    Keep stirring - a wooden spoon would be good here.  Cook for a minute or so, still stirring and put in the Stilton.

    Continue to stir until the cheese has melted and you have a nice sauce. You can 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.

    You can remove it from the heat and put to one side till your steak is done - just heat it up again very gently and stir or it will split.   

    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. :)))
