Add to skillet and cook about 4 minutes per side for medium doneness.Transfer steaks to a broiler pan and top each with 1 ounce blue cheese.

Remove from heat and spoon over crusted steaks.

 

Blue Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Blue Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
