Pan-Seared Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce features ingredients that are meant to go together: rich steak and tangy blue cheese. Seasoned ribeye steaks are seared to perfection, basted in butter, and then served with a decadent blue cheese sauce spooned over the top. Cooking your steaks on the stovetop is a simple way to get juicy, mouthwatering results (especially if you don’t want to venture outside and fire up your grill!). This pan-seared steak with blue cheese sauce is perfect for date night…or to make any evening feel fancy! It’s an easy way to elevate a grilled steak dinner at home.

  1. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature about 20 minutes prior to searing. Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel and evenly season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks in and allow to sear for 5-7 minutes before flipping. Sear for the other side for another 3-5 minutes before adding the butter into the skillet and reducing the heat slightly so the butter doesn’t burn.
  3. Carefully tilt the skillet and use a spoon to baste the melted butter over the tops of the steaks for a couple minutes, or until desired doneness is achieved. Remove the steaks from the heat and allow to rest for 5-8 minutes prior to slicing.
  4. While the steaks are resting, pour the heavy cream into a small sauce pan over low heat and stir in the blue cheese. Bring to a low simmer and stir until the blue cheese is melted into the heavy cream – leaving a few clumps as desired. Remove from the heat.
  5. Slice the steak against the grain and serve with the blue cheese sauce and additional blue cheese crumbles served over the top. Enjoy!
