Say hello to your new favorite dinner. Sometimes, you just need a steak. I love this recipe cause it's made in a grill pan... Perfect for little apartment dwellers like me.
And this particular steak is grilled in brown butter and then smothered in blue cheese gravy. Mushrooms and onions add a rustic flavor. Pair with a glass of chardonnay, some steamed veggies, and garlic mashed potatoes and you are in for a pretty fancy meal. I made this for Jason on our second date and I'm pretty sure it helped seal the deal if you know what I mean... I like to make it every now and again. It's not the healthiest meal, but every once in a while this decadent dish is completely appropriate.
