Filet of Sirloin. Blue Cheese. Caramelized Onions. Let that sink in for a minute… Ok now it’s time to put all of those together in an insanely delicious dish! There is literally something magical that happens when you pair up blue cheese and onions, and the only thing better is when you add a grilled Certified Angus Beef® brand filet of sirloin to the mix. Of course you know me and I always have to keep things interesting so instead of just blue cheese and onions, I’m thinking butter and balsamic! I got the idea to make a compound butter on the Certified Angus Beef® website for Steak with Classic Steak Butter but of obviously added my own touches.
I’m amazed by the ease of grilling these filets. I used nothing but salt and pepper (that’s right zero oil), and by the graces of the fantastic marbling through out the steak, I got perfect grill marks. Not only does the marbling aid in coating the steak perfect while grilling but also it provides exceptional flavor where really no sauce is even needed! I always have a killer time every time I am able to get outside and grill, and this delicious dish made it that much sweeter. So the next time your out at the grocery store, be sure to pick up a few Certified Angus Beef® filet of sirloins, some blue cheese, butter and onions, you won’t regret it.
