BLEU CHEESE CRUSTED STEAK

Your favorite steak (I prefer Filet Mignon)


Crust:

1/4 lb. fresh crumbled bleu cheese

1/3 lb. room temperature REAL butter

1/2 cup bread crumbs (I use Italian style)

1/2 teaspoon minced fresh garlic

1 teaspoon black pepper


Mix all ingredients together to form a round log, wrap in wax paper and refrigerate until ready to use – log should be firm.


Grill steak to your liking.  Take off grill and bring inside.  DO NOT add slices of crust to the steak on the grill!


Add cut slices of the log and spread on top of steak and BROIL until brown.

2 packages of Flank Steak

4 Tbsp Brown Sugar (to taste)

16 oz Soy Sauce - Room Temperature

5 oz Worcestershire Sauce - Room Temperature


Cut flank steak WITH the grain into 3/4" - 1" long strips


Make the marinade:  Start with brown sugar, then the soy sauce, then the Worcestershire sauce, ensuring the brown sugar dissolves completely. Taste.  You may need a little more brown sugar. 


Marinate the flank steak in a Ziploc bag at room temperature for 4-6 hours, mixing it around every hour, or so.


BBQ just until it starts to turn black.
