New York Strip with Spicy Blueberry Reduction and Blue Cheese AND a #Giveaway

This steak…
New York Strip with Spicy Blueberry Reduction and Blue Cheese Oh, my.

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.
New York Strip with Spicy Blueberry Reduction and Blue Cheese 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.

  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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.

  3. I would make them on the grill.

  4. I would grill and use lots of peppercorns

  5. I would serve them with a cognac cream sauce.

  6. I would rub them with a tuscan garlic rub and then grill them

  7. I’d make them in the broiler with garlic butter.

  8. wow this looks so delicious. Thanks for the great recipe… I think I would just put salt and pepper on mine & pan sear them on both sides and finish in the oven in my cast iron skillet .. although I do want to try your sauce above ….thank you for the great giveaway
