  • 1
    Season steaks with salt and pepper. In 8-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook steaks, turning once, until brown on both sides and cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.
  • 2
    In another 8-inch skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add shallots; cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft. Add garlic; stir 1 minute. Add broth and wine; heat to boiling. Cook 5 minutes. Add whipping cream; heat to boiling. Reduce heat. Simmer 7 to 10 minutes or until slightly thickened. Beat in 1/4 cup of the blue cheese with whisk until smooth.

Expert Tips

  • Blue cheese comes in a large variety of flavors. While Danish blue is mild and creamy, Roquefort can be much stronger in flavor, so choose the cheese that suits your taste best.
  • Sliced green onions can be substituted for the chives in this recipe.
