Ingredients

Marinade
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons stone-ground mustard
  • ½ cup whiskey
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon crushed garlic
  • 1½ teaspoons salt
  • 1½ teaspoons ground pepper
Roasted Garlic Blue Cheese Butter
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic, smashed
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 small shallot, minced
  • salt and pepper

Preparation

In a large zip-style bag, combine the marinade ingredients and rub together with your fingers on the outside of the bag. Place the steaks in the mixture and let marinate for 4 to 24 hours. Allow the steaks to come to room temperature while preparing the grill. Meanwhile, mix the butter, blue cheese, roasted garlic and minced shallot in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Grill the steaks for about 6 minutes on each side, or until desired doneness. Let rest on a plate, covered with aluminum foil, for about 5 to 10 minutes. Top each steak with blue cheese butter mixture and serve.
