Blue Cheese Sauce

Stilton or blue cheese sauce recipe - sirloin steak, medium rare for me, please!

Of course, you can use any blue cheese for this.

Steak with blue cheese sauce

Stilton or Blue Cheese Sauce

My husband loves Roquefort sauce, but it really does have a powerful taste; personally, I'm not a fan and much prefer Stilton.

I actually prefer rump steak over sirloin, which is odd as I usually like anything that's more on the expensive side!

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.

What is Blue Cheese?

Blue cheese made with cultures of the mold Penicillium.

This gives the cheese spots or veins of the mold throughout the cheese, which can vary in colour through various shades of blue and green.

This carries a distinct smell, either from that or various specially cultivated bacteria.

Some blue cheeses are injected with spores before the curds form, and others have spores mixed in with the curds after they form.

Blue cheeses are typically aged in a temperature-controlled environment such as a cave.

Blue cheese can be eaten by itself or can be spread, crumbled or melted into or over a range of other foods. Blue cheese is known for its pungent creamy texture.
