  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2-3/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
  • About a tablespoon of pepper cracked
  • 1 tablespoon flour and I tablespoon water cold
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Preheat oven to 450 Boil potatoes in water about 20 minutes and drain let cool for 5 or So minutes

    Step 2

    Once cool place potato on cutting board or sheet pan. Lightly smash with the palm of your hand until it splits but is still firmly together

    Step 3

    Like so. Do this to all of your potatoes

    Step 4

    Like so

    Step 5

    Add about 3/4 cup of olive oil to a bowl... If you happen to have a truffle oil or something use that, that's what I used. Love it!

    Step 6

    Add about a tablespoon of Italian seasoning to the oil

    Step 7

    Add salt and pepper to taste and whisk a bit to incorporate

    Step 8

    Coat potatoes a few at a time, don't toss or the potatoes will break. Just flip and coat all sides

    Step 9

    Put them on a sheet pan and any remaining oil mix in the bowl just pour on top of potatoes. Set aside until ready to toss in the oven

    Step 10

    Take your bunch of asparagus, I normally trim off the first 1/2 inch

    Step 11

    Boil them for 2-3 minutes to partially cook

    Step 12

    Then shock them in an ice bath to stop the cooking and keep the green color

    Step 13

    Leave them in for a few minutes and then drain in a colander for a few minutes

    Step 14

    Same thing with the asparagus add about a 1/4 cup olive oil, salt and pepper and 2 teaspoons of the Italian seasoning to the bowl then toss the asparagus and coat

    Step 15

    Of you have a big enough sheet pan, lay them out next to the potatoes, other wise out them on their own sheet pan

    Step 16

    Add them in your 450 degree preheated oven pull the asparagus after about 17 minutes and the potatoes at 25 minutes

    Step 17

    While the veg is cooking add a few tablespoons of oil to a pan and get nice and hot

    Step 18

    While the pan heats open you meat

    Step 19

    Portion it out

    Step 20

    Take about a 1/3 cup steak seasoning, 2 table spoons pepper and 2 teaspoons salt and mix

    Step 21

    Spread it on a plate like so

    Step 22

    Crust each side of the steak in the mix... If you run low on seasoning you can add more

    Step 23

    Flip, and the other side

    Step 24

    Bam, all pretty and waiting to get hot

    Step 25

    Our oil is nice and hot, you can't tell, but it's at the point where there is a little smoke. Tells me it's ready to cook some beef!

    Step 26

    Add your steaks in, if need do two batches

    Step 27

    I pulled the steaks after 4 minutes each side, now let them rest a bit

    Step 28

    Take those beautiful pan bits and juices, add the beef stock to it as well as the pepper and just a touch of salt... Before the stock, melt the butter in the pan to bring up some of those bits!

    Step 29

    Let the stock reduce for about 2-3 minutes.

    Step 30

    Mix the tablespoon of flour and cold water in a desperate dish and add that and the cream into the stock whisk well. And let cook and reduce another 3 minutes

    Step 31

    It's started to thicken now, and I tossed the steak in for only 1 minutes to reheat a bit before serving

    Step 32

    Once you pull the meat out of the sauce, add the blue cheese and which until it melts. Another 1-2 Minutes

    Step 33

    Look at the veg as I pulled them from the oven

    Step 34

    More veg

    Step 35

    Plate up! Potatoes, the steak and then lay the asparagus on top. Sauce on top ad let it run down, then around the plate

    Step 36

    The cooking times I used gave medium rare. If you want it to a medium, add about 2 minutes when first pan searing them. Enjoy! Check my other guides! Also on Facebook the love of culinary creations
