For 2: Rib-Eye Steak with Mushrooms and Bleu Cheese

This is a mouth-watering steak. Every time I serve this in the restaurant the customers rave. The best part, it’s so simple you can make it at home for the family. Serves 2

• 2 ea. Rib-eye steaks (each about 1 inch thick)
• ½ tsp. Kosher salt
• ½ tsp. Pepper
• 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
• 3 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
• 1 ea Onion - thinly sliced
• 1/2 lb Mushrooms - thickly sliced
• 2 Tbsp. Garlic - chopped
• 3/4 cup Beef broth
• 1/4 cup Brandy
• 1/4 tsp. Fresh rosemary - minced
• ½ cup Bleu cheese - crumbled

Place steaks in shallow dish. Drizzle with oil; rub oil all over steaks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add steaks to skillet; fry until cooked to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Using tongs, transfer steaks to plates and place in a warm oven. Add butter and onion to sauté pan then sauté until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic; sauté until mushrooms are just tender, about 4 minutes.

Add broth, brandy and rosemary and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits. Reduce until liquid by 2/3, about 5 minutes. Add cheese; stir just until cheese melts, but still has bits of bleu cheese visible, about 1 minute. Take the steak out of the oven and transfer it to a plate. Top with mushroom sauce.
