Blue Cheese Crusted Filet

Robert Myers


You can't go wrong with this one! A guaranteed crowd pleaser. I have cooked this several ways and it has always come out awesome. My favorite way is to smoke the steaks for 30 minutes or so to get all that flavor in them and then cook them outside on the grill. I usually then transfer them to a cast iron griddle and add the blue cheese mixture and finish them in the broiler. This is one of those recipes that is hard to mess up. My Daughter really likes the port wine sauce that goes with this steak, I always make extra for her. I will post some images of the process the next time I make this.

How to Make Blue Cheese Crusted Filet


  1. 1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and thyme. Cook, stirring
    constantly, until onion is tender. Stir in the beef broth, scraping any onion bits from the bottom of
    the pan, then stir in the port wine. Bring to a boil, and cook until the mixture has reduced to about
    1/2 cup. Set aside. This may also be made ahead of time, and reheated.
  2. 2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Heat oil in a cast-iron or other oven-safe
    skillet over high heat. Sear steaks quickly on both sides until brown, then place the whole pan into
    the oven.
  3. 3. Roast steaks in the oven for about 15 minutes for medium rare - with an internal temperature of
    145 degrees F (63 degrees C). You may adjust this time to allow the steaks to finish just below
    your desired degree of doneness if medium is not what you prefer. Remove from the oven, and
    place on a baking sheet. Stir together the panko crumbs and blue cheese. Top each steak with a
    layer of this mixture.
  4. 4. Preheat the oven's broiler. Place steaks under the preheated broiler until the cheese topping is
    browned and bubbly. 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the oven, and let stand for at least 15 minutes
    before serving. Serve with warm port wine sauce.
