Yesterday, one of my favorite blogs, ThePioneerWoman.com posted this recipe. If her photos didn't sell me enough her descriptions did. She writes like I think and I love it. Let's just say she captured my sentiments EXACTLY on her post. It has nothing to do with that big, red, juicy piece of meat sitting on a bed of cream and onions. Nothing. PLEASE check out her site here for more photos. You will die. I did.
Her recipe was INCREDIBLY simple to make with only a few ingredients. HIYO silver. This was da-bomb.com as my friend would say. Let's also say I am wearing something with a stretchy waistband this morning.
I accompanied the heart attack with a side of green beans inspired by my sister.
2 ribeye steaks 2 tablespoons butter Salt Pepper 4 tablespoons butter 1 very large yellow onion 3/4 to 1 cup heavy cream 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
Salt and pepper both sides of the steaks. Grill in 2 tablespoons butter until medium rare.
Saute onions in 4 tablespoons butter over high heat. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, or until dark and caramelized. Reduce heat to simmer and pour in cream. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until reduced by half. Stir in blue cheese until melted. Serve steaks on generous portion of sauce.
Soy Garlic Green Beans
2 cups fresh green beans 1 tsp. minced garlic 2 T. soy sauce 4 T. water
Saute all of the good stuff together for 5-8 minutes until tender. As an addition I deglazed my steak pan from above recipe with the only alcohol on-hand, Bud Light Lime. I reduced it and poured it into the pan as well. I then won my 3rd wife of the year award. Enjoy.
