One of Craig Morgan's Favorite Recipes - Developed by PBS' "Barbecue America" host Rick Browne
Preparation time: 15 minutes - Cooking time: 15 minutes
- 1 stick unsalted butter at room temperature
- 4 tablespoons Blue Cheese, crumbled
- 1 teaspoon finely minced shallots
- 4 (10 to 12 ounce) rib eye steaks
- 1/4 cup cracked black, red and green peppercorns
- 3 tablespoons kosher or sea salt
- 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Sheet of plastic wrap
- Sheet of aluminum foil
- 1 can (22 ounces) BUSH'S(r) Steakhouse Recipe Grillin' Beans(tm)
Mash together the room temperature butter, crumbled Blue Cheese and shallots. Lightly season with salt, stir and set aside.
Heat barbecue grill (or oven) to 500 degrees Fahrenheit for indirect heating.
Rub the peppercorns into both sides of each steak. Place plastic wrap on each steak and press the peppercorns into the meat with your hands. Unwrap and sprinkle with salt. Throw the plastic wrap away.
Place steaks on the very hot grill and cook until well browned on one side, about 2 1/2 minutes. Turn steaks and cook 2 1/2 minutes on the other side. Then place steaks on the cooler side of the grill for an additional 2 1/2 minutes.
Rub 2 tablespoons of olive oil into a cast iron or heavy skillet. Remove steaks from the grill and place in the oiled skillet on unheated side of the barbecue grill and cook for about 8-9 minutes for medium-rare (145 degrees Fahrenheit on instant-read thermometer); or 9-10 minutes for medium (160 degrees Fahrenheit on instant-read thermometer).
Remove the steaks from the pan and place them on a heated platter, top each cooked steak with a generous tablespoon of the butter mixture. Cover steaks with foil and let the meat rest for 5 minutes.
Serve with one can (22 ounces) BUSH'S(r) Steakhouse Recipe Grillin' Beans(tm).
