Steak Bites with Blue Cheese Sauce

These steak bites are the perfect addition to your game day gathering! Oliver’s Choice Rib Eye Steak, on sale* this week at Oliver’s Market, is distinguished by its rich marbling; it is this marbling that slowly melts and bastes the meat throughout the cooking process, imparting a profusion of flavor and a buttery texture. The sauce is delectable, prompting us here at Oliver’s to imagine what else we could put it on…Enjoy!

Instructions

  1. Heat a cast iron, or other heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat.

Add the cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, then stir in the blue cheese, chives and black pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving bowl.

  4. Place the steak bites on a platter, with the sauce on the side. Garnish with chives and serve with toothpicks or cocktail forks. Serves 8 to 12 as an appetizer.
