Enjoy a medium-rare, pan-seared strip steak topped with rich buttery toasted pecans and a decadent blue cheese and butter blend.


  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped and lightly toasted
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
  • 4 3/4-inch-thick New York strip steaks
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  1. Place the butter and the blue cheese into a small bowl and mix to blend.
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, about 2 minutes, sprinkle the steaks on both sides with salt and pepper and then place in the pan. Cook the steaks for 3 minutes on each side, flipping once, and then transfer to a serving plate.
  3. Top the hot steaks with dollops of the blue cheese butter and the toasted pecans; serve immediately.
