Blue Cheese Crusted Strip Steak

Blue cheese crusted steak over a bed of balsamic onions.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. On a small baking sheet, roast the oats for 5-7 minutes, stirring after 4 minutes. Reserve.
  3. Preheat grill or grill pan to high heat. Season steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill on each side for 3 minutes or until grill marks form. Place steaks on a baking sheet and cook until internal temperature reaches 125° (for a medium steak) or 135° (for a well done steak).
  4. In a medium pan, heat olive oil and butter over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté for 3-5 minutes. Add balsamic vinegar and simmer, covered, for 2 minutes. Reserve.
  5. In a food processor, combine the oats, blue cheese and heavy cream. Pulse to break up the cheese and until the mixture comes together.
  6. Once steaks reach an internal temperature of 125°-135°, divide the oat mixture between the steaks and pat it evenly over the top. Adjust oven to broil setting.
  7. Broil the steaks for 3-5 minutes, or until the crust becomes golden brown. 
  8. Divide the onions among two plates, top with steaks and serve immediately.
