Rib-Eye Steaks with Blue Cheese and Red Pepper Coulis

Ingredients

1 sweet red pepper, seeded and diced
2 tablespoons (30 mL) cream cheese
1 tablespoon (15 mL) blue cheese
1 tablespoon (15 mL) olive oil
2 rib-eye or boneless rib steaks, each about 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick

Directions

Cover pepper pieces with water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes uncovered, or until quite soft. Drain and purée in a blender until almost smooth. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

Using a fork, mash cream cheese with blue cheese until blended.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. When very hot, add steaks. For medium rare to medium doneness, fry 3 to 4 minutes or just until juices begin to rise.

Spread red pepper coulis on part of warmed plates, place steak over sauce, and top with a dab of cheese mixture.

Makes 2 servings.
