Steak and Blue Cheese Salad


by: This Little Piggy Loves Food

Sorry for the silence however my daughter is away with her father and my husband has been in France and so I have been home alone. Despite the fact I LOVE food, cooking for one is hard - firstly because I become so unmotivated and secondly most recipes are for 4 people which means you end up with tonnes of leftovers. Although I did make my quick pita pizzas one night and they were very good. Anyway Pascal is now back and so it is time to cook again. As it was super hot today we wanted a barbecue but we also wanted something quite light so this recipe card from Waitrose was the perfect option. It took about 20 minutes in total.

1.  Crush the garlic cloves and rub one on to each steak.

2.  Roughly mash the Roquefort in a bowl and then stir in the sour cream. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.

3.  Boil the beans for 3 minutes (or according to the packet's instructions).

4.  Drain and cool (I rinsed them under cold water). Cut into bite size pieces.

5.  Brush the bread with oil.

6.  Cook the bread and steaks on a barbecue or in a griddle pan for a couple of minutes on each side (you may want to cook the steak longer if you prefer it more well done).

7.  Place the lettuce and green beans in a large serving bowl.

8.  Slice or cube the steak and add to the salad.

9.  Tear or cut the toasted bread into pieces and add to the salad.

10.  Add the blue cheese dressing and mix well.

11.  Serve with a sprinkling of chives.

12.  Wow this was really good! I am a big fan of the steak and blue cheese salad at Sophie's Steakhouse in Chelsea but this was even better. Very simple but full of flavour. I never realised it was so easy to make blue cheese dressing - I will definitely be making this again and / or variations of this salad starting with an iceberg wedge with blue cheese and bacon - another favourite of mine!

13.  You can enhance this recipe by marinating the steak in a couple of tablespoons of Jack Daniels whiskey for a few hours or even overnight .
