Ribeye Steak with Onion and Blue Cheese Sauce

This recipe comes from the The Pioneer Woman.  A customer first brought it to my attention and now I make it for guests all the time.  EVERYONE loves it, and it's SO simple. 
 

Ingredients
2 whole Ribeye Steaks (T-Bone or Porterhouse works well also)
2 Tablespoons Butter
Salt
Pepper
4 Tablespoons Butter
1 whole Very Large Yellow Onion, Sliced
1 cup Heavy Cream
1/2 cup Crumbled Blue Cheese

Instructions
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.

   Grab a large onion.
Very large.
 
   Cut it in half from root to tip…

Then peel off the outer layer and make relatively thick slices. Not huge, but definitely not thin.

Melt 1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) butter in a heavy skillet
over high heat.
 
When it’s all melted…

REE_9076Throw in the sliced onions.
Stir them around, then let them sit and cook over high heat. Stir them only occasionally; we want them to get nice and brownish/black.

Meanwhile, grab a Harter House Ribeye Steak
Since the sauce is so flavorful, all I use to season is salt and pepper.

Heat up the grill outside, or heat up a grill pan. Add lots of butter so it’ll get brown.

While the steak cooks, go ahead and make the (very easy) sauce.
 
Turn the skillet with the onions down to low heat…

Then pour in 3/4 to 1 cup heavy cream.

Heat it all up…
And stir it gently as it cooks. Slowly the white cream will take on the color of the caramelized onions and your soul will sing.

You want to cook it for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the sauce thickens and reduces by about half. If it gets too thick (it shouldn’t), you can splash in a little beef broth.
 
REE_9121REE_9119Stir in 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese.

Please do this, even if you think you don’t like blue cheese.




Now stir it around while the cheese melts and makes the sauce even more creamy than it was before.

To serve, make a nice, generous bed of sauce on a large plate.
This dish is for, shall we say, hearty appetites.
 

 


Then place the steak, which is now grilled (medium rare) to perfection, right on top!
