Blue Cheese-Crusted Sirloin Steaks

My wife adores this steak—and me when I fix it for her. She thinks it’s the ideal dish for Friday night after a long workweek. —Michael Rouse, Minot, North Dakota

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons soft bread crumbs
  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (1 inch thick and 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • Preheat broiler. In a large broil-safe skillet, heat 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat; saute onion until tender. Transfer to a bowl; stir in cheese and bread crumbs.
  • Cut steak into 4 pieces; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In same pan, heat remaining butter over medium heat; cook steaks until desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°), 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Spread onion mixture over steaks. Broil 4-6 in. from heat until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
