It’s a wickedly delicious combination of sweet and savory with a kick.
Wondering what the kick is? Serrano pepper.
Yep. But don’t be intimidated; it’s not that overwhelming. It’s just enough. If you’re sensitive to heat just do half of a pepper instead of a whole.
If you’re a blue cheese fan, you’ll love this.
The sauce is easy – butter, onion, orange juice, serrano pepper, Worcestershire sauce, amongst other things. I reduced it down and thickened it a little and poured it over my steak. It’s a little smoky, a little sweet and a little spicy. Sauce perfection.
Oh, but, wait…
Then I topped it off with some velvety blue cheese. That’s what rounds this whole beautiful thing out.
It’s unexpected, but trust me on this. I know it sounds strange, but it really is off the charts good. I want to pour this sauce all over everything. And lick it.
These are Kansas City Steak New York Strips – I’ve also had their T-Bones and filets and they’re all outstanding.

What does add Karo syrup through blueberries mean?

Too salty! I will make this again but reduce the seasoning to teaspoons not tablespoons.

With a little pink sea salt and some pepper, then straight on the charcoal grill for a nice sear on each side. They wouldn’t need anything more 🙂

I would cook them medium on the grill with very high heat, let’m rest for a bit and serve them up with a baked potato and grilled asparagus.
mandaJune 24, 2016 at 12:47 PM
I would make them on the grill.
libbyJune 21, 2016 at 9:44 AM
I would grill and use lots of peppercorns
JennaiJune 21, 2016 at 2:28 AM
I would serve them with a cognac cream sauce.
keshaJune 20, 2016 at 9:15 PM
I would rub them with a tuscan garlic rub and then grill them
KristenJune 20, 2016 at 8:21 PM
I’d make them in the broiler with garlic butter.

Melissa RJune 19, 2016 at 8:47 PM
