Prep Time: 10 minutes Wait Time: 30 minutes – 2 hours Cook Time: 10 minutes Serves: 4

Seasoned steaks, grilled to perfection and topped with tangy blue cheese sauce.

Ingredients:

4 New York Strip steaks

1 (12-ounce) bottle Stubb's Sweet Black Pepper Anytime Sauce

1 teaspoon each salt and black pepper, or to taste

¼ cup half and half or whole milk

¼ cup sour cream

½ cup quality blue cheese, crumbled

1 clove garlic, minced

½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

Directions:

Place steaks in a large baking dish or zipper topped plastic bag. Pour Stubb's Sweet Black Pepper Anytime Sauce over steaks. Allow steaks to marinate in sauce for 30 minutes at room temperature, or for one to two hours in the refrigerator.

After marinating, preheat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan to medium-high heat and oil the grill grates to prevent the meat from sticking. Remove steak from marinade and discard leftover marinade. Season steaks with ½ teaspoon salt and black pepper. Grill steaks for 3-4 minutes per side, cooking until a thermometer registers 140°F for medium rare.

Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, stir together half and half, sour cream, ¼ cup blue cheese crumbles, garlic and Worcestershire sauce. Heat sauce to a simmer over low heat. Season blue cheese sauce, as needed, with remaining salt and black pepper.

Serve grilled steaks topped with warm blue cheese sauce and remaining blue cheese crumbles.
