Dinner Tonight: Bleu Cheese Baked Steaks

Andrew makes us these steaks a lot of times on Sunday evenings, and they are so good!  I know everyone has their own particular way of preparing a steak but for what it’s worth, this is our method.  Enjoy!
Shopping List
4 filet mignons (you can use whatever cut you prefer but we like a filet)
Worcestershire Sauce
Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 tablespoon of butter per steak (make sure it’s softened)
1 tablespoon of bleu cheese crumbles per steak

Preheat your outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to as hot as it will go.  Our grill goes to 600 degrees, so that’s the temp we use.  Get it HOT!  Also, preheat your oven to 450 degrees inside as well.

Inside, take each steak and pour a tablespoon or two of Worcestershire Sauce down over the top of each steak and about a tablespoon of steak seasoning.  Rub it all over each steak.

Place the steaks on the really hot grill just to sear for about 2 minutes each side.  You’re not cooking it on the grill, just searing it for color and to lock moisture in.

After two minutes, remove them from the grill and place them in a baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and put them in the oven to bake.  Bake them 15 minutes for a steak cooked medium, longer for more well-done.

While the steaks are baking, make your bleu cheese butter by combining your tablespoon of butter with your tablespoon of bleu cheese.  They’re both soft, so they should mix up really well with just a spoon.

After 15 minutes, remove the steaks from the oven and put the bleu cheese butter on top of each steak.  Pop it back in the oven for about 2 or 3 more minutes to allow the butter to kind of melt.

Remove from the oven and serve.

Simple and delicious.  This is my favorite way to eat a steak.

We serve our steaks with roasted cherry tomatoes.  For those, you just place a pint of cherry tomatoes on a foil lined baking sheet and then drizzle Extra Virgin Olive Oil down over the tops and add a sprinkle of pepper and salt to the tops.  Roast at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes.  Yum.

    I look forward to your recipies! I was wondering if you cook baked potatoes very much. I've just discovered that they can be cooked in the crockpot. I haven't perfected that yet. I think I cooked them a bit too long last time. But they seem better than the microwave for a busy school day. I would live if you would share any meal ideas you have that could involve "baked potatoe nights". Thanks so much for your ideas!

    Yum! The Montreal season, in my opinion just makes the steaks! So good…going to have to try your bleu cheese method next time we have steaks…aka my favorite meal!

    These look soooo delicious!! One question- I don't have an outdoor grill due to my nyc apt :(. Would you suggest leaving it in the oven a little longer if you skip the first step? I'd love to hear- I can't wait to try these!

    We use Montreal Steak Seasoning too. It makes the best steaks and is good on so many other things too! These look really delicious.

    If you don't have an outdoor grill, I would get a large pan or a grill pan screaming hot and sear it on the stove before popping it into the oven. After that, proceed as directed. Enjoy!

    This looks SO good. I love my steak well done (I know, flame away! Haha!), do you have any idea how long I'd need to keep it in the oven for it to be well done?

  • Rebecca August 21, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Yum! Can't wait to try it! Thanks for the recipe.

  • Jeanie August 21, 2014 at 10:16 pm

    Oh, my goodness, that looks good!

  • Aunt J-ha August 21, 2014 at 11:41 pm

    My mouth is watering. Can't wait to try these.

    Tonight will be my 2nd time making this recipe! It is soo good! It makes cooking steaks a lot less intimidating! The tomatoes are delicious too!

    I made this tonight for our Father's Day dinner and it was truly the best steak ever. This will be the only way we do steaks from now on. I swapped the bleu cheese with goat cheese (we aren't a fan of Bleu) and it was so delish. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Hey Shay, what would you suggest cooking time wise for a thinner cut (I think I used top sirloin or something like that)? I tried this but it turned out tough (but still good) so I want to try it again.

    I made cooked these steaks tonight. Oh. My. Word. We are ruined for life! Guess my husband won't be grilling steaks out ever again. So delicious!!!
