Rib-Eye Steak with Onion Blue Cheese Sauce

AMAZING! Now you don’t have to scroll to the bottom to see if it came out ok. I sat in silence and ate my happy steak dinner for one. Then I proposed to myself.

Ingredients: (adapted from The Pioneer Woman)
1 boneless rib-eye steak
1 medium onion
1-2 portobello mushrooms
1/4 cup blue cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
S&P

Make sure your meat is room temperature before you cook it, so take it out of the fridge ahead of time. While that’s doing its thing, slice the onion. I used a little more than half but not the whole thing, just my preference though. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a pan or pot, add the onions and cook on medium low until browned, about 5 minutes. Next, chop the mushrooms and add those to the onions. Let cook another minute or two. Add the heavy cream and simmer until the sauce thickens. Lastly, add the blue cheese and cook until fully melted.

I like mine medium rare. Remember, the meat will continue to cook once off the heat. I place mine on a cutting board for 5 minutes before cutting in.

It’s a rich meal, so I recommend having some simple veggies on the side. This was my intention until I got so excited to eat the steak that I forgot to make my broccoli. Oh well! Next time.
