I recently came across the concept of steak with blue cheese that sounded like a really nice combination. I had heard of this in the past but that was back when I did not fully appreciate a good blue cheese. Now that I have been enjoying blue cheeses I could not resist one of my favorite treats, a nicely seared medium rare steak, with blue cheese it quickly made it to my meal plan. While I was searching for recipes I came across one that combined another of my favorite foods, mushrooms that had me sold immediately. I eventually ended up going with this recipe for steak in a mushroom and blue cheese sauce . The only real change that I made was swapping the rosemary for some thyme which I think goes better with mushrooms. For the blue cheese I went with a nice creamy gorgonzola dolce. The steaks cooked easily and quickly and the mushroom and blue cheese sauce was nice and straight forward to make. The results were absolutely amazing!! There was a nice slightly crisp crust on the outside of the steaks and the insides were nice and moist and tender and perfectly medium rare. The mushroom and blue cheese sauce was nice and creamy and tangy and oh so lick your plate clean good! I will definitely be making this mushroom and blue cheese sauce again! I served the steak in the mushroom and blue cheese sauce with some herb roasted onions and some roasted squash with gorgonzola and maple syrup .

yum! That looks so delicious! I love blue cheese and mushrooms, we might have to try it sometime soon!
You are so right about thyme going better with mushrooms than rosemary.
Great photos as always.
Steak and blue cheese are such a good combo. Fantastic dish.
Nice photos too! It’s hard to photograph dark dishes like that.
Ok I will be honest…I hate mushrooms and blue cheese…but your pictures are absolutely amazing of this dish!
Superb !!! superb..
I love a great rib eye with blue cheese! But I love mushrooms too and this recipe is headed straight to the printer!
I just finished dinner and I saw this post and my mouth immediately started watering, I love blue cheese!!!

My crazy crazy life says
This looks amaz-za-zing!! Bleu Cheese or Gorgonzola goes great with any type of beef. What kind of cut of steak did you use for your recipe?
That hunk of tenderloin looks like it was done the way I like it! and smothered in mushrooms too! heaven!
Sounds like a meal fit for a King. Love the idea of bleu cheese in the mushroom sauce.
Rosa's Yummy Yums says
Oooohhh, this sauce looks mighty delicious! Wonderful with a good steak…
Goodness, it’s been a while since I have steaks. In fact my son keep asking, and I keep promise him that I will make steaks for dinner. Hmm, thanks for the recipe. Delicious.

Looks really delicious! I’ve never tried steak and blue cheese!

Clumbsy Cookie says
Gorgeous sauce! I bet it would be great in a lot of things!
We haven’t had a good steak at our house lately. I think I’ll be making one with your sauce very soon. Blue cheese is a favorite – in sauces, on salads, in dips!!
Oh – that second picture has really made my mouth water. Yum! I’m craving steak right now and this sauce sounds great – I really like the blue cheese/steak combination.
That looks amazing.
You have my husband drooling over this photo! I love gorgonzola. The flavors you chose sound fantastic together!
It looks so good Kevin. I think I will make this and just not tell Grumpy I’m putting blue cheese in it…and see how he likes it!
Kevin shame on you for posting such a food porn photo.
My hubby would pass out if I made this for him…I just might do that. :::printing:::
i’m not really a blue cheese fan, but i can always change the cheese, right? your steak’s lovely… 🙂
Mmm, that looks so good! A guy I used to go out with made a killer creamy blue cheese sauce that we used to serve with pan-fried beef fillet medallions – decadently delicious.
This looks delectable!
My hubby would devour that steak in mere minutes! I’d love some lick your plate clean steak with mushroom and blue cheese sauce! Gorgonzola is my favorite, and I bet it went great with this. YUM!

This looks incredible.. Steak and Blue cheese is a very popular combination here at some of the better So California restaurants and your homemade version goes toe to toe with them..
Mushrooms and blue cheese?! A perfect topping for steak!
I do agree with you, regarding Thyme. I enjoy rosemary, but that herb has a very distinct personality and it bullies the mushrooms around. I find Thyme is also distinct, but isn’t a bully, and I quite like it with mushrooms. Your meals are always so beautiful. I wish you had auditions for friends.
David Myers says
Why not have your cake (rosemary) and eat it too. Use Thyme with the mushrooms and blue cheese, and rosemary (ground up somewhat) directly on your steak along with the salt and pepper before searing.
Diana Evans says
oh yumm Kevin…this is my kind of meal!!!!
Really I love blucheese Kevin and this dish look fantastic! xGloria
*wipes tear* That looks like a beauty!
I think I’ll be making this for Valentine’s Day. Looks great!
My mouth is watering while looking at your picture. I’m making this soon!
how about a slice of that cheesecake?
Good job – I’m on a blue cheese kick these days 🙂
Yum Steak and blue cheese and I’m in heaven. Throw mushrooms on top of that and you made the perfect meal.
I am loving the sauce- so creative! the entire dish looks fab!
Every single time I visit your blog I start to drool. This looks so delicious Kevin – excellent recipe!
Chocolate Shavings says
Blue cheese and steak are one of my favorite combos – this looks delicious!
I don’t eat a lot of steak, but my mouth was watering just reading this post. And funnily enough, I have a whole box of steaks languishing in my freezer – an Xmas gift from my hubby’s company.
This is on the list for my next steak.
lisa (dandysugar) says
Mmm. This meal looks fabulous! So rich and tempting!
Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) says
Whoever first paired beef and blue cheese was a genius — it is one of the most satisfying flavor combinations of all time. And, as I’m not a fan of rosemary, I’d also prefer fresh thyme from my garden.
Great looking steaks. I love blue cheese and that sauce sounds fantastic.
Peter M says
Kevin, that’s a classy steak…really like bleu with beef.
Man I love blue cheese on steak. Make mine cabrales.
I made this the day you posted it, and it was simply fantastic. The blue cheese sauce is simply wonderful.
Mmm..mushroom and blue cheese sounds excellent.

This steak looks so delicious!!!! Gorgeous picture!
This sounds so delicious and I know it would go over extremely well around here. I agree on the rosemary & mushrooms. So tasty. Great photos, too!
Normally I am not a huge red meat eater, but this just looks sooo good. I am definitely going to have to make this sooner rather than later!

food and recipe
For Valentine's Day I made dinner for my husband. I made Potatoes Anna, French Green Beans, and Tenderloin with your Mushroom/Blue Cheese Sauce. It was wonderful, my husband kept telling me thank you over and over. He loved the steak and sauce. The beans and potato dish didn't even get mentioned. I did use shallots instead of onion. He loved it and I loved it. Thank you for a great recipe. I have made a few other recipes of yours and have loved them all so far. Keep up the great work.
I made this for dinner tonight with strips of chuck steak (the price was right..I'd love to make this with an expensive cut). It was beyond words, amazing and will become a staple meal at our house. Thanks!!

Vivian Comer says
not a big fan of blue cheese, is there another kind of cheese that could be substituted?
Vivian Comer: A creamy goat cheese would also be fabulous!
Looks amazing, making this tonight!
Hi, Kevin, I made this sauce tonight to go with leftover filet roast. It was superb! Even my fussy husband said it was outstanding. I added a splash of red wine as well as brandy.
Just finished making this sauce for dinner served over a beautiful ribeye, and it was UNREAL! So delicious. One of my favorite things I’ve ever eaten. Cannot wait to use it to entertain.
